Betty female

2017-05-14

I HAVE a secret Santa!

Location: Florida

Our beautiful Betty comes to us from a farm in South Florida. A group of Rat Terriers were living outside, and the people wanted someone to get the dogs off the property. After arriving at her foster home, Betty was shy and withdrawn for the first 2 days, then she ventured out to explore and learn about inside living. Once Betty realized she was in for only good things now, she started to follow her fostermom around the house. Pregnant when she was rescued, Betty gave birth to 4 beautiful boys on May 9, 2017. After her babies were weaned, Betty had heartworm treatment (in July). You can find more pictures of Betty here in her album. Donations toward Betty's expenses are graciously accepted here at this link.

Macy female

2017-12-02

I NEED a secret Santa!

Location: Florida

Macy is a beautiful dark blue and white, and the Mama of Maybee and Marty. She and her 2 pups were living on the streets in Georgia, and all 3 of them had skin issues. Macy's skin was the worst of the three, but her coat has gotten MUCH better with a special diet, baths, and supplements. Macy LOVES people, and will sit up for attention. She is a seriously kissy girl, so any potential adopters would have to welcome many, many kisses. Macy has a pronounced underbite but it just adds character to her sweet face. We believe her to be only about one and a half years old. Macy tolerates cats, and gets along fine with mellow dogs.

Vader male

2017-05-04

Adopted!

I'm going HOME for Christmas!
CongRATs to the Freeman family!

Location: Oklahoma

Vader and his siblings were abandoned at a restaurant in rural NE Louisiana. They were brought to Oklahoma by volunteer transport on July 13th, at the age of about 8 weeks (our vet's best guess). Vader is about 12 pounds, and the largest of the three puppies. He is affectionate with people, good with the other dogs, and full of energy and enthusiasm. Vader minds very well, especially for a puppy. He is affectionate with people, and good with the other dogs. He even minds pretty well, for a young puppy. Vader and his siblings began his crate training early, and he is doing well with both crate training and house breaking. He likes the cats in his foster home, and even respectful of them. We believe Vader and his siblings are mixed with Beagle, so an adult weight between 16 and 24 pounds would not be unexpected.

Patrick male

2016-01-28

I HAVE a secret Santa!

Location: Florida

Patrick is a very special Rattie. When we first saw him, he was cowering in the back of his cage at a high kill shelter in Miami, FL. Not much was known about him aside from the fact that there was something wrong with his left eye. He was not able to see out of the eye and it was bulging out a little. Nothing extreme, but he needed to see a specialist. We got him out and immediately he bonded closely to his foster mom. She noticed that he held up his right knee when walking briskly so that was also evaluated; Patrick had a very bad luxating patella (knee) and it needed surgery. His eye would only get worse, so we had a specialist remove his eye and work on his knee. Pat recovered nicely from his surgeries, acting like nothing happened. He no longer cowers in fear, but now has a VERY brave persona. He protects his fostermom from critters like squirrels, cats and large dogs. He is quite the character - loving, affectionate and brave. We are looking for a special home for Pat. He loves long walks and to cuddle on the couch. Pat would prefer to be the only doggie in the home because he wants all the attention to himself.

Gumby male

2017-05-14

Adopted!

I'm going HOME for Christmas!
CongRATs to the Benes family!

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Gumby Ratbone is a SPECIAL boy! We were alerted to his plight when a video of him trembling in a cage at a high kill shelter in South Florida was posted. The shelter said his medical was normal - they did not list anything about his rotten and broken teeth. Poor Gumby had MAJOR periodontal disease, and many of his teeth were already missing. He had to have TEN teeth removed, but he pulled thru like nothing happened. Gumby is a very affectionate boy. He is fine with cats and dogs of small to medium size. He isn't happy around larger dogs, and will growl at them - but he responds quickly when he is asked to behave. Gumby is crate trained and enjoys snuggling in bed with his fostermom and some of the other critters. He is GREAT on a leash, and loves to just chill out and watch DVDs and TV shows. Any applicants should understand and accept that Gumby should have regular check ups, and may very likely need yearly dental cleanings, to take care of the remaining teeth that he has. Gumby is about 7 years old and weighs 15 pounds. He loves lamb & rice dry food and he likes "stew"type canned food. Gumby is ready for a great home, one who will adore him and really take care of this special boy. More pictures of Gumby Ratbone can be found here in his album.
