What's this snake on our deck?

We were cleaning up out back for a cookout, and I spotted this
little guy. Does anyone know what kind of snake this is? My guess was that it was not poisonous based on the head shape, but I don't know if that rule applies to baby snakes as well. More inside.

We live in Memphis, and have a raised deck, there is an area underneath it that we cannot access. Considering that this is clearly a baby snake what are the chances that there are more around? Not to mention the momma snake? I know nothing about their reproduction habits, and I want to know if we should be taking further action. We have 3 dogs, one of which is a puppy and I am concerned about them more than I am us though. Any advice?
