Jim: Foster Dog


Jim has a penchant for standing in tall grass.  His brindle coloring does a great job of camouflaging him!

Jasper Goes Houdini on Us

Jasper got out of his pen and ran off. He was gone about 4 hours. HairyFace went out to track him down (on foot). That was doomed to failure, but Jasper did get returned safely. This story has a happy ending, let’s state that right up front. Hairy wasn’t sure how he got out, but […]

Home Page

Piney Mountain Foster Care is a small, all volunteer, non-profit kennel facility located on 4 acres of mountainside property in Edwina Tennessee. We got our start in 2012 by caring for dogs going through heartworm treatment.  We still do this and other medical care.  We also work with dogs with behavioral issues.  But we are […]

Faith: The Sad Tale of a Foster Dog

Faith was an exceptionally sweet, affectionate dog.  She was very calm and gentle.  And beautiful. We fell in love with her right away and were considering adopting her as a companion for Cochise.

She was heartworm positive.  They knew that, but delayed getting her started on treatment.  When she finally arrived she hadn’t been here long. I went in one morning to get her out of her crate and found she had passed in the night.  It was a very sad time.

Bella: Foster Dog

Bella is a sweetheart of a dog.  Gentle, cuddly, well behaved.

Unfortunately all the photos and adventures about Bella were posted to Facebook, so are long since gone.  She came before I started building foster dog pages, just writing Doggie Tales about their adventures, and some of those were published elsewhere, not on our web site.

Curry: Foster Dog

Curry was one of our first foster dogs.  He was an entertaining fellow, and he loved to run and play with Cochise.

Blondie Bear

Blondie Bear was the second foster dog we adopted. Cochise was our first. He was our first foster dog and our first “foster failure” (meaning we could not give him up). Blondie was our fifth foster dog and second foster failure. But this time, it wasn’t entirely our fault: Cochise talked us into it. Cochise […]

Cochise Gets TLC at TSC

It was a bright and sunny Saturday, a perfect day to go for a ride in the truck. And since my kibble bucket was almost empty, it was also a perfect time for that truck ride to take us to Tractor Supply Company. So I paced and humphed while Hairy Face and Nice Lady got […]

Road Tripping with Cochise

Hi again, Cochise here. Hairy Face, Nice Lady and I went on a road trip today. Lady wanted to go to Jefferson City and visit the only Wal-Mart in our region that still stocks fabric. She wants to make a new bed skirt and curtains for their bedroom and does not like ordering fabric off […]
