Posted Mar 29, 2010 at 1:19 pm in Latest News



CongRATulations to the Dolomont family!

Hank is an adorable puppy, and is 8 weeks old as of 2/1/10. He was left on a doorstep in East Texas, and ResQ was contacted. Hank is a happy and healthy puppy, and has started his routine shots. He weighs 4.6 pounds at 8 weeks, and is extremely self-confident and bold! He does love to snuggle in your lap and give puppy kisses, though. He has short little legs, which means he is a Teddy Roosevelt Terrier (formerly called a Type B Rat Terrier). His ears are going up, but aren’t quite there yet. Hank is just a beautiful puppy. He is being happily spoiled by his foster mom, who is going to hate to see this little darlin’ go! Please see more photos of Hank and his brother, T.J.!

CongRATulations to the Pettit family!

Hi, my name is Pluto. My foster mom named me after the planet, because I’m small. I weigh about 17 lbs and am about 3 to 5 years old. Before I came to live with my foster mom, I was homeless. I was brought to a shelter, but nobody came looking for me. After a while, my time was up. I was very scared, but then my foster mom showed up to take me out of that scary place. I’m a very good boy. I never go potty in the house. I’m learning to sit and stay, but I have to stay on a leash whenever I go outside. I like to go exploring, but I might get lost if I wander off. I met a 12-year-old kid and I loved him! I’m good with dogs and I met cats and totally ignored them! What I really, really wanted for Christmas was a family of my own, but no luck so far! Can you help me have a fantastic new year in a new home? Yours truly, Pluto [P.S. See more pictures of me!]

CongRATulations to the Carreno family!

Hi! My name is Gizmo. I’m 3 years old and I weigh 14 lbs. Before I became a Rat Terrier ResQ dog, I was a stray in Northeast Arkansas. I was injured on the street and spent 3 days under a tree in a pile of snow before a nice volunteer came to get me. Due to my injuries, I was not eligible for adoption. Another volunteer arranged for me to take a plane ride to Florida where my foster mom was waiting for me. I’m doing much better now and am recovering from my injuries. I hope to be ready for my own family soon. I’m a really good boy. I sleep in my crate without complaining. I’m house trained, and I get along with everyone, including cats, dogs, and kids. I’m also very vocal and will talk to you if you like, but I promise not to bark too much. Do you have room in your heart and home for me? If so please adopt me, I have my own leash and will travel. If you’re wondering about my life on the streets, I’ll tell you all about it.  You can also see more pictures of me!

CongRATulations to the Beck family!

Hello, my name is Jorj! I’ve been told that’s a fancy spelling for “George,” but hey, I come when you call me, especially for dinner! I am about 8 months old and weigh 13 pounds, and am a handsome boy! I love to play, play, play with other dogs, but I’m not sure if I would like cats or not. My favorite thing to do is snuggle on the couch with my new foster dad! He tells me that I’m doing great with my house training, and he doesn’t fuss at me when I forget every once in a while, mostly when I’m busy playing. I sleep through the night with no accidents, too! I am a puppy, so I can be a bit mouthy when I’m playing, but I’m learning. I need to have plenty of chewies, because I love to chew! My foster dad says it’s better to buy rawhides than new furniture! I can walk on a leash, and I love to go for car rides! Please see more photos of me, so you can be sure and let me know if you want to adopt me. I can quickly pack my bag and favorite bone!

CongRATulations to the Rilling family!

Sid is a wonderful 4 year old male, who was rescued from a kill shelter. He is such a sweet guy, loves to be cuddled and is always giving kisses. He is very laid-back, but he loves going on his walks and looks forward to them. Leash walking him is so easy; he will walk right next to you. He likes being outdoors, so a home with a secured fenced yard would suit him best. He doesn’t mind being around other dogs, but isn’t much into interacting with them. He is submissive to other dogs and would not pick a fight. He will chase the tennis ball, but seems more content on being a lap dog. He is a friendly boy and will let anyone pet him including children. As long as someone pays attention to him he is happy. He likes to chase small animals so a home with cats would not be good for him. We think a home where he will get a lot of attention and affection would suit him best. Please see more pictures of Sid!

CongRATulations to the Jones family!

Minnie is 2 years old and weighs about 15 pounds. She is crate trained, house trained, and gets along with everyone including other dogs and children. We’re not sure how she does with cats, but we can have her “cat-scanned” upon request. Minnie came to us from an animal shelter in south Florida when her owners were no longer able to care for her. Minnie was shy for about the first half hour in her foster home. After that, it was as if she owned the place. She plays with the other dogs and is very sweet and affectionate. She’s full of energy and loves to run around but is also content to sit in your lap or next to you on the couch. Is Minnie the perfect addition to your family? Please see more pictures of Minnie!

CongRATulations to the Cooper family!

Parker is a handsome one year old male. He is a tall guy (about 17 inches) and weighs around 15 pounds. He is very active and needs to have space to run and play. Although he is young, he is very smart and knows his basic commands, and how to properly walk on a leash. He is in training right now to be a very well-adjusted, happy dog. He definitely needs to have humans who can be his leaders. He is a follower, and should not be given too much leeway. He knows his boundaries and will not jump on furniture or go where he is not allowed to be in the house. He is housebroken and uses the doggie door to go potty outside. He adores being around people, and loves playing with other dogs. He likes going to the dog parks and will run for hours with his dog friends. He likes being chased and playing with his toys. He would do best in a home where there is another playful dog, a home with children to play with him, and a very, very active owner. If you think Parker would make a great addition to your home, please fill out an application. Please see more pictures of Parker!

ADOPTED! Skeeter

Posted Mar 2, 2010 at 10:56 pm in Latest News



CongRATulations to the Getchell family!

Skeeter is a happy, energetic, spirited little guy who doesn’t seem to have any fears. He’s willing to engage anyone in play – from dogs his size to a 160 lb Great Dane. He loves toys of all kinds but especially loves chasing tennis balls – he’s an excellent catcher! He’s a big kisser, very affectionate and loves cuddling under blankets with you while watching TV or napping. He is crate-trained and house-trained, comes when you call his name and has recently learned to walk on a leash but he’s still easily distracted by squirrels. He will chase a cat if it runs, but if they stand their ground, he backs off. He’s very protective of his food so he’ll growl if other dogs look at him while he’s eating. Skeeter likes kids but he’s still a little nippy when grabbing toys or treats (still a little puppy behavior left in him). Skeeter is 18 months and weighs 20 pounds. He’d love to have a home for the holidays — maybe it’s yours? Make sure you see more pictures of Skeeter!

CongRATulations to the Renfro family!

ADOPTED! Greyson

CongRATulations to the Morrin/Dennehy family!

Meet Greyson, a distinguished gentleman at the approximate age of 9 years old and around 15 pounds. Since arriving in his foster home he has been nothing but a well-mannered and pleasant companion. Greyson is house trained, crate trained, walks well on a leash. This guy loves everyone, young and old! Greyson gets along well with his foster siblings and loves to play with his ball; he can entertain himself for hours. Greyson was a victim of the foreclosure problem in California. He was abandoned in his backyard, in bad shape, left for animal control to come and rescue him. After undergoing extensive teeth cleaning, the vets found surgical metal in his mouth which had to be removed. Apparently, it was left in his mouth long ago from some type of corrective surgery and was never removed. Because this metal was in his mouth for so long (the specific time frame is unknown), it left his teeth and gums in terrible shape. Poor Greyson had a terrible odor due to his body digesting he metal, but there is good news! Since removing the metal and few good baths, he no longer has a bad smell. There is no residual health impact, except that his teeth and gums will need to be monitored by a veterinarian on an annual basis. Please see more pics of Greyson!
