Piney Mountain Foster Care resides on a mountainside property in Edwina Tennessee. Our specialty is caring for dogs going through heartworm treatment, but also take in those other health problems or with behavior issues. When adoptable, these dogs are transported to other rescues (mostly east coast) for adoption. See the Canine Rescue Partners page for details on these.

Our Facility

Our facilities include a 1/3 acre fenced play yard, three 8′ x 10′ chain link kennels under a roof, with dog houses and raised beds for nice weather accommodations, and a heated bunkhouse with an assortment of crates for foul-weather and short term accommodations of non-housebroken dogs. Each dog gets multiple play/training sessions each day when they are allowed to run, play, and train in our large, fenced yard. We normally have eight dogs in residence at a time.

Our Mentors

Cochise was our first foster dog back in June of 2012. We fell in love with and adopted him. Blondie was our 5th foster and Cochise fell in love with her (so did we) and convinced us to keep her as well. Not only did they learn to be excellent house dogs but they became mentors, roll models, and interpreters for our foster dogs. Cochise also told the Doggy Tales stories you will find on Doug’s Random Thoughts blog. Cochise passed away May 3rd of 2018 and Blondie carries on as Doug’s training assistant and body guard.

Foster Dogs Past & Present

Below are photos, names and residency dates of our fosters.

Most dogs get a Notes On A Rescue Dog page that offers photos and video of that dog interacting with people and other dogs as well as descriptions of their personality, habits, and progress in training. As adopter Debra Solitto told us, “I have read your blog about Julian many times. It was posted by Meryl on the Fur Friends in Need Facebook page. That blog and the videos of Julian are the main reason that we pursued this adoption. After I met Julian at the adoption event and saw those videos, I knew that I had to have this dog”. We encourage rescues taking Steele dogs to link to the page related to that dog and use it in finding them a forever home.
