Meet Matilda

My name is Matilda!

First, let's focus on why I am special needs, I am terrified of children! Before rescue, something happened and I cannot live in a home with small children or where small children frequent.

I love to chase birds in the yard, play fetch and be with my parents. I think I am a guard dog, I love to bark at everything outside of my yard, because It is my job to keep my yard safe! I go to the door and stand when I need to go potty. Sometimes I'm stubborn if I think I can get my way, but I know basic commands so I know what no, sit, stay and down means. If there are treats involved I'm always a good listener.

There are things I definitely don't like. I don't like to share my food or bones. I don't like all dogs, but I do like dogs that respect my personal space and give me some time to make sure they will be nice to me. I don't mind cats if they don't mind me.

I am approx. 5 yrs old and 65lbs.I am spayed, heartworm negative, and up to date on my vaccinations. I am a unique dog that needs a unique owner, can that be you?

We are not a shelter, we are a rescue and all of our rescued pets live with a Tennessee foster family until their forever home is found. They are all checked by a veterinarian, current on their vaccinations, spayed/neutered are micro-chipped. Our fosters know the animals best and will give you an honest assessment of their traits and training.

If you are interested in adopting a pet from Hero West, please email us at

As soon as we receive your application back, we will begin processing your application. If you are approved we will put you in contact with the foster so they can better answer any questions you may have.
