The Langford Hounds

Sparky, left; Fred, center; Sadie, right
Sparky, a beagle was adopted from the Nashville Humane Association by my brother Samuel, sister-in-law Cindy and nieces Jordan and Raeanna as a companion for our late father's beagle, Sam. They were inseparable until Sam departed for doggie heaven. (adopted about 1996
Sadie, a beagle basset mix, was ill at the Nashville Humane Association and I adopted her to save her life. She was quarantined and treated by our vet until she was healthy enough to be adopted by my nieces and join Sam and Sparky. (adopted about 1999)
Fred, a basset, was a birthday gift from me to Raeanna and was adopted from the Nashville Humane Association. He lived inside some but was irresistibly drawn to roll in farm and barn substances to the extent that he was presented a doghouse like Sadie and Sparky have. Fred was unwilling to go into the doghouse so his bedding was placed in this small house, formerly the playhouse of Jordan and Raeanna. Fred found this housing to be acceptable. Within a few days, Sparky and Sadie moved in with him. (adopted February 2005)
My brother Samuel took this picture as he was leaving for work. It seems that Sparky, Fred and Sadie were just beginning their day on their front porch.

Cattie
clear

My husband and I just want to thank the Nashville Humane Association for giving us Cattie. We kept her name because is suits her. She is friendly and soooo loving. My husband and I were going to adopt a cat from the local pet store. But thanks to NHA we were able to give a homeless cat a wonderful and loving home. She is sweet and we enjoy having her and loving her.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to adopt a pretty and wonderful cat.
Best wishes.
Amy and Jay Johnson

Max
clear

I adopted a dog named Max (then named George). I love him soo much. He is a very good dog. I got him for my birthday. My mom says "he(Max) sucked her up" as in he made an adorable face and BAM! we took him home. It was pretty cool, because Max only went to the bathroom on the rug twice. And that's it. I can tell they were nice to him.

Thank you NHA!!

P.S. This picture of Max is when my mom dropped a wig on him..so I fixed it up on him.

Sirius
clear

My fiancee and I adoped Sirius (formerly Albert) from the NHA March 2005. I was taking some time off of work and thought it would be a perfect opportunity for me to be a stay at home momma to my new dog! He was five months old when we got him, and now he's a ripe one year old dog! We figure him to be a Chow/Lab/Newfoundland mix, with nothing but love for everyone! (Except for pet fish, he doesnt like fish and barks at them constantly.) He now lives with 5 "stepbrother and sister doggies" with us and our friends in Joelton!

Thank you, NHA, I love Sirius more than you will ever know!

Jazze
clear

I adopted Jazze (Jazzy) on January 13, 2006. It was anything but a Friday the 13th. My son came to my work with a bogus story about car trouble and I needed to go with him - we ended up at the Nashville Humane Association. He had already scoped out the puppies that you had and already picked her out. I fell in love at first sight. We got her and took her home. As you can see she fits right in. She has a black lab named Rocky and a grey tabby named Peyton to keep her company. She is wonderful and lives up to her name Jazze, she doesn't stop for much.

We love her, Thank You very much!

Gamer
clear

I adopted a puppy from the NHA back in June 2003, and I just had to tell you guys that she is the most unique and most precious dog I have ever been around!! I have grown up around dogs all my life - my family had 6 with all of the rescues we took in! But there is truly something special about Gamer (named Rebecca when she was at the NHA). My husband and I are constantly trying to figure out what mixture of breeds she could be because we swear she is part human. She is absolutely brilliant, and 'talks' to us all of the time. She has so many different facial expressions and moods, and sometimes she'll get bored with the couch and decide to jump on one of our end tables to take a nap.
I fell in love with her at NHA and called my husband frantically so that he could come see her and agree to take her home with us! He had wanted to buy a bichon frise since he had grown up with one, but I would only adopt a shelter dog, and since Rebecca had been listed as a bichon, maltese, spaniel mix, I told him I had found the perfect bichon mix! When he got there and saw the fuzzy, grayish/brown mess that Rebecca was, he laughed. Then she jumped up and kissed him, and he was sold.
She is now Gamer and her eyes are now a greenish brown, and her hair is much longer. She has been to 3 different houses with us, to Texas, and then back to Nashville. She has a sister now that we rescued from a park during a storm, and we have actually caught them snuggling together a couple of times.

I just cannot thank you guys enough for giving us such a wonderful gift in Gamer. She is truly one of a kind, and she has made our family complete. Thank you so much!!!
Thanks again,
Courtney Childress

Pixel
clear

My husband and I decided to adopt another cat after one of our 2 cats died. Dewey, the cat left behind, was distraught and really needed a companion. After a couple weeks of searching for just the right kitty, we came to visit the NHA. We stopped by and visited with 6 month old Pixel (then known as Kaya). I fell in love with her the instant she started to give me little "love nips" on my chin. We played with her and decided to go home and think about it. A little while later we had decided that she was most definitely the kitty for us. It's been almost a year now and her favorite games are still sheet monster (she still hasn't figured out that SHE'S the monster) and chasing her big brother, Dewey.

Bear
clear

His name is Bear. We brought him home when he was 6 months old and now he is 13 months. He weighs 17 pounds and is 33.1/2 inches long from nose to tip of tail. He was named Mo at NHA but he did not respond to it. One day my husband said that he looked like a bear and he meowed. So Bear he is. He has the most wonderful personality. He is funny, loving and helps me design jewelry and my husband when he reads. Bear came into our life when we were grieving over the loss of our 20 year old Tortie, Dominique.

Thank you NHA for your care and love of unwanted and lost animals. Had it not been for you we would not have our Bear.

Elvis
clear

I moved to Nashville over a year and half ago and didn't know a single person in town. Not long after, I adopted a beautiful little "beagle" puppy and named him Elvis. Forty-eight pounds and twenty inches later, Elvis is clearly not a beagle, but it doesn't matter because his personality, energy, and unconditional love make me so glad I adopted him. He rides shotgun all 750 miles back home with me several times a year, likes watching other dogs on tv, and is obessive about plucking the bows off of Christmas presents.

Thank you, Nashville Humane Association, for giving me my first real friend in town.

Jake

Dear Wonderful People at Nashville Humane Association:
I just wanted to tell you how I've been doing. It's been eight months since my new mommy came to get me from your shelter. I was known as Hunter there and didn't think I'd EVER get a new forever home! My mommy and daddy came to pick me up since my human sister was due home from summer camp the next day and her dog passed away from old age while she was away. The day before mommy came to get me she adopted a sister for me from another shelter who was a month older than me and very shy (she had been abused badly). Mommy says the best thing that could have happened to Jessie was ME.....I am now called Jake by the way. I have a big fenced in yard, toys toys toys and two other doggies and five kitties to play with. I love to snuggle with mom but it isnt' as easy as it once was since I've gotten a LOT bigger. Mommy says I look like a small horse...haha. I get bones in the backyard (they are beef basted so mommy says "NOT in the house") and we have our own swimming pool to play in. We wanted to say thank you for giving me a second chance to find a forever home and I am so happy here. Mommy and Daddy take us to the lake when the weather is warm to swim and since we're lab mixes, we just love it.

Mommy says more people should adopt black labs because we're so sweet and we don't understand why more people wont take us because of our color. I'm the one in the picture with the white chest. Mommy says my sister Jessie and I could almost be blood related we look and act so much alike, I prefer to believe it's the nature of the lab.....

Give a four legged friend a second chance, don't we all need a second chance sometime??
Love,
Jake (aka Hunter)
and his forever family!

Sparky
clear

We adopted Sparky last fall and, even though we were excited at the time, we had no idea how much we would come to love him! Jason found Sparky in a most unconventional setting: The Tennessee Prison for Women. Sparky was there as part of PPAWS (Prison Puppies Achieving Worthy Service) and Jason was speaking on behalf of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Amachi program at the prison when they first met. All the women Jason met that day said Sparky was their absolute favorite of the dogs, and they were praying he would find a good home. That night when Jason came home and told me about Sparky, we decided right away we had to adopt him. Thankfully it worked out that we could adopt him on the first day he was paroled from the prison! Sparky is a very affectionate guy who loves to play with other animals, especially the dogs at Nashville's Dog Parks. He also loves nature, especially hiking around Edwin and Percy Warner Parks. When he settles down, he loves to cuddle with us and has no idea he weighs more than 70 pounds! He is a big lap dog and always wants to sit with us or plop his head down on us. The kids in our neighborhood love to walk by our yard when he is outside in the fence and cheer him on when he plays Frisbee with us. Sparky has become quite a show-off when he gets that kind of attention! He's quite a character, and our lives are so much richer since we have him to love!

Thank you so much for all you do to help animals like Sparky find good, loving homes!
Heather Corum and Jason Powell
