CongRATulations to the Nestor family!
Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wa) is a darling little girl who deserves a chance to be your new best friend! At just 7 months old, she was scheduled to be euthanized at a shelter in Louisiana. Just before her fate was sealed, she was saved! And what a great save she is! She’s loving and friendly, cuddly and happy. We’re getting to know her, and working on her house training. She gets along with the other dogs in her foster home, and has ignored the cats. She has not been around kids, but would probably be great with them. We’re working on crate training and not jumping up. This girl is going to be a great addition to whatever family is lucky enough to adopt her! Please see more pictures of this darling. Quinoa’s adoption fee is $150.
CongRATulations to the Glynn family!
Joy’s mom, Lady, is a Rat Terrier but dad, not so much. We think Joy’s a Rat Terrier/Blue Heeler mix. We also just think she’s cute and cuddly. She was born on December 7, 2009. Joy is a follower but loves to instigate Rat runs and tug-of-war challenges. She loves running around the yard, and enjoyed playing and plowing through the snow when she was in Texas. She is doing well with potty training. Joy is a champion snuggler and loves to give kisses. You must see more pics of this girl!
CongRATulations to the Cabal family!
Haydn’s story is a sad one. She was severely burned by her former owner and sustained third-degree burns over 30% of her back and side. Unfortunately, she received minimal medical care until recently, when she made it to ResQ. Currently, Haydn is on antibiotics, pain medication and Silvadene burn cream. She has also started cold laser therapy to heal the last open wound. Haydn, only about 2 years old, will need significant medical care for a while, including a possible wound revision surgery to help with the tightness the scars have caused since she has difficulty bending one of her rear legs. She may also need hydrotherapy to help with the strength in that leg. She is leery of new things, but we can see a very playful girl (at least, as playful as she can get with a cone on her head!) and believe that she has an incredible and joyful spirit inside her. Haydn is not yet available for adoption, but we’ll keep you posted here! Please see more pictures of Haydn, but be forewarned, they are a teensy bit graphic.
CongRATulations to the Bacon family!
Zuki is approximately 4 years old and weighs 15 pounds. She is a gorgeous blue color. This little mom was rescued as a stray in Florida and has come north to find her forever home. She is a very friendly little girl who just loves being with you. When you enter the house, she greets you with a full body wiggle. She is crate trained and house trained. She sleeps in her crate without making a peep, but would also enjoy cuddling with you at night. She loves her stuffed toys, shaking them and throwing them around which is so much fun to watch. She enjoys going on walks and meeting new people. You will melt when she looks at you with her big brown eyes. Zuki has endured a difficult past and is now a healthy girl who deserves a great home for the rest of her life. Could it be yours? Take a look at more pictures of our gal, Zuki! Her adoption fee is $150.
CongRATulations to the Wilcox family!
Isn’t Rudy the cutest? He is a 12 week old Rat Terrier mix (born December 7, 2009). We say mix because we know his mom was a Rat Terrier but we can only guess that daddy was an ACD/Blue Heeler. Rudy is about 11lbs with the most gorgeous green eyes you’ll ever see. Rudy is a smart pup! He has learned to sit and learning his house training manners quickly. As long as he is kept on a schedule and taken out often he does well. He knows what he has to do when we go outside. He is crate trained and will mostly sleep through the night. Every once in a while he will need to go outside to do his business. Just like most puppies, Rudy is playful and curious; unlike most puppies, he listens well. Rudy would be fine with cats and kids and other dogs. You have to see more pictures of this breathtaking boy!
CongRATulations to the Eisen family!
Warrior is an awesome and handsome 12-pounder who came to ResQ after his owner surrendered them at the local kill shelter due to moving. Warrior is a healthy and happy young man who is about 2 years old. He is house trained, kennel trained, gets along well with all the dogs in the house, is a very sweet snuggle bunny, and is just an all-around great dog. Warrior is a calm thoughtful soul. Warrior loves to try to get his older Rattie siblings to play, but sometimes is a little overzealous with his play invitations, but he will submit. Warrior is a quick learner and is working on some basic training. He is a very easy boy to live with. Warrior will be a great family dog, especially if he has children to play with and throw balls for him to fetch. He would also be a sweet companion as an only dog. He can be “cat-scanned” upon request. Make sure you see more pictures of Warrior!
CongRATulations to the Alexander family!
Clover is a sweet, loving, 6-month-old puppy. She weighs about 9 lbs and has the softest fur. Clover loves to pay with her sister and all the other foster dogs, no matter what size. She likes to go in the fenced yard and do Rattie runs while chasing any dog that wants to play. Clover is doing great with her potty training and will use a potty pad if needed. She is crate trained, but she will need a little training on the leash. She loves to sit on your lap and take a nap and also enjoys playing with all toys. She would be best with children over 6 because she is still a little bit mouthy, but she is learning to use her toys instead. She is not a destructive pup and is happy just to play with her toys. She is an active pup and will need someone who is willing to walk her and play with her so she does not get bored. Please see more pictures of this dollbaby!
CongRATulations to the Sandifer family!
Noel’s mom, Lady, is a Rat Terrier. And going by Noel’s looks, it’s possible her dad was a Dachshund, but she is not short-legged. Noel was born Dec 7, 2009 in a Texas shelter. Right now she is about 10.5″ tall and is just under 10 lbs. Noel has been in her current foster home for three weeks with three other dogs and a cat and there are no problems with any of them. She does bark at the cat sometimes, but never tries to chase. She plays with whatever dog is willing (and tries to play with the ones that aren’t!). Noel has the most fabulous personality. She is happy and outgoing, her tail NEVER stops wagging. Noel has visited a very busy local park and greeted everyone she could from about age 2+. She is not fearful and shows no aggression. One of the older dogs does not like to be bothered, but she pays no attention when he growls at her. She has happily greeted any visitors to the house, which are mostly teenage boys. She is playful, but also affectionate. Loves her toys and also to take a snooze in a lap. Noel does not chew excessively – no destroying of shoes or mouthing human hands. She is making progress on house training and trying to learn to like her crate. She has learned some basic training and seems to catch on easily. Her personality suggests she would be happy in any family situation, though we have not seen her around young children yet. She has a healthy appetite and is not a picky eater. Please see more pictures of this gorgeous girl!

CongRATulations to the Beekler family!
Casey is a wonderful young man, 11 months old and about 10 lbs. His legs are a little shorter than average but that doesn’t hold him down any. Casey loves to play with bones or chew toys and play chase with one or more of the other dogs. He uses a doggie door like a champ though he has to be reminded occasionally to go outside. Casey is just fabulous! He is funny and absolutely full of cuteness. He has been known to sleep with his head in his food dish — just in case he misses the dinner bell! He likes to sleep under the covers, on your lap, up against you on the sofa (under his blankie) — he’s not particular! Casey is energetic, full-of-life, and has a gentle soul. He can be a bit of a talker when he wants something. He likes to nibble on one’s fingers though he has a very soft mouth when he plays with his person. To know him is to love him. He would do just fine with children six and older. He is very compatible with other dogs and people though he can be a little shy at first. Check out more pics!
