Xena was abandoned with her siblings at a rural, high-kill shelter in the South that had no formal adoption program. ResQ was notified and stepped in to rescue the sweet pups and give them a chance at life. Our volunteers sent the pups to the Northeast for fostering and to find furever homes, and Xena wound up on Long Island, New York. Xena is approximately 12 weeks old and is just the sweetest thing! She is a chocolate/lemon tri-color with a striking pattern on her face. It’s like she’s wearing a mask! And that’s how she got the name “Xena,” (the Princess Warrior) although she doesn’t have an aggressive bone in her body. She gets along well with all of her foster siblings, and may only be 5 pounds, but she can handle the brute of the bunch in her foster home! Everyone who meets her falls in love immediately. She loves to play, as any puppy, but melts into your arms as soon as you hold her. She has learned to sit for a treat and is working very had on housetraining. She will sleep in her crate all night long, and willingly go into the crate for feeding time and nap time, but if she’s not tired, will complain for a few minutes before settling into the crate. When fully grown, Xena should be about 12-15 lbs. She is a type A Rat Terrier, with long legs and slender build. If you are looking to open your heart and home to a puppy, please consider sweet Xena, a lot of love in a little package! Xena will be available in just a few short weeks so get your application in so she can go home as soon as she is ready!
Hi! My name is Sanchez. I am about 5-6 months old. I don’t know for sure, because I can’t remember my birthday. When I was really little, I got lost and ended up at a shelter. It was really scary there. Thankfully, rescue volunteers got me out of there. I’m really happy in my foster home, but I would really like to have a family of my own. I love to run and play, especially with other dogs. My foster mom says I annoy the other dogs, but I’m just persistent. Eventually, they give in and play with me. I love kids. I’ve briefly met a few cats, but they won’t play with me, so I bark at them. I sleep in my crate like a good boy, and I am housebroken. I’m learning to walk nicely on a leash and to sit when asked, but it’s really hard, since I just want to run and play. I’ll keep working on it, ‘specially if it helps me get my own family. Do you have room for me at your house? I only weigh about 8 lbs, and I promise I won’t grow much more. Let me know, and I’ll pack my bags, or at least my leash. More Photos Click Here:
Hello, I’m Charlie! Charlie was born in the animal shelter in Lufkin, Texas, and didn’t know until he was almost 4 months old that there was a big old world out there to run and play in. His mom is a Rat Terrier but his daddy was most likely a long-coated Jack Russell Terrier. He is kind of a fuzzy Rat Terrier with a little fuzzy beard, and he weighs about 18 pounds. Charlie is now about a year old. Charlie is really cute, and boy-oh-boy, is he smart! He learned to sit after only 2 treats, and has almost perfected “down” and “shake.” Like any puppy, Charlie is happy and playful, and loves everyone. Charlie is crate trained and housebroken, but he doesn’t really like being crated that much. Playing tug of war is one of his favorites, and squeaky toys are just the bomb! He rides wonderfully in a car, does well on a leash, and hasn’t met anyone he doesn’t like. He would be wonderful for a family with kids to play with, and toss a ball for him to retrieve. He gets along with all the dogs in his foster home, especially if they like to play! If you are looking for a boy that runs, jumps, plays and cuddles, look no further! You need a happy guy like Charlie in your life to make you smile and laugh. And he needs a home, so you are the perfect match!
