CongRATulations to the Mansur family! 

 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!

ADOPTED!! Sanchez

CongRATulations to the Hooter family!

 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:

CongRATulations to the Norris family!

 Max is a sweet little boy.  He is about 3 years old and weighs about 20 lbs.  Max is fully housebroken and crate-trained.  He and his brother, Echo, were given up when their family had to move and were forced to leave their dogs behind.  Max is easy-going and will bark to alert you if someone comes to your door. That’s his job, after all!  And someone obviously worked with him, since he knows basic commands like, “sit”, “come”, etc.  He gets along with other dogs, and although we aren’t sure how he will do with cats, we can have him  “cat-scanned” upon request.  He will sleep in his crate, but would much prefer to sleep in bed with you if you let him.  Could Max be the perfect addition to your family? For more pics of Max in his Florida fosterhome, Click Here

ADOPTED!!! Thumper

CongRATulations to the Torello family!
  Thumper was such an amazing little guy that a shelter volunteer kept him safe in her home for about a week until ResQ could squeeze him in.  Was he worth it?  You bet!  Thumper loves everyone!  He loves men and women equally, and greets visitors with a wag of his little tail.   Thumper is housebroken and quiet, and doesn’t challenge any of the other dogs in his foster home.  He gets excited when he sees a black car drive by, so we think he must still be looking for his master to come get him.  Thumper follows his foster dad everywhere, and gets excited when he sees a leash, or thinks he might get to ride in the car.  Thumper had someone who loved him, and we may never know how he ended up on the euthanasia list at a shelter.    He is about 4 years old and weighs 16 pounds – just the perfect lap size!  Thumper is affectionate and minds well, and would do well in just about any home.  However, Thumper can easily scale a 4′ chain link fence, so that needs to be taken into consideration if you think you might like to adopt him and give him a permanent home.  View more Thumper pics.

ADOPTED!! Charlie

CongRATulations to the Daniels family!

  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!  For photos of this cute boy in his foster home, check his photo album often:
