Rocket – ADOPTED!!

Posted Jul 12, 2015 at 6:34 am in Latest News

DSCN0410ADOPTED!!  Meet the Rocket Man!  Rocket came into ResQ from a shelter in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, along with two other rat terriers.  We think he is about 2 years old, and weighs 14 or 15 pounds, the perfect lap size!  Rocket is crate trained, and housebroken with a doggie door.  Someone took some time with him, because he knows how to use a doggy door, and is excellent with multiple dogs, both large and small.  He is friendly to strangers, and walks like a pro on a leash.  Rocket knows “sit” and other basic commands.  He will even spin in circles upon command, especially for a yummy treat!  Rocket was very well socialized, so it’s hard to understand why he ended up homeless at a kill shelter.  Rocket loves to be held, and will come happily when you call him, wagging his tail off.  His foster family reports they have found no issues or red flags with this happy boy, and he is ready to find his permanent home.  We think he would be fine with children, but we have not tested him with kids.  Also, his willingness to coexist with a cat is unknown at this time.  This little guy is sure to make some family very happy!  For more photos of Rocket in his foster home, click on his album:

Emma – ADOPTED!!

EmmaADOPTED!!  Emma is the definition of a sweet little soul. She was picked up as a stray and languished in an Arkansas shelter where her fear grew and she lost weight. When it was apparent no one would claim or adopt her, ResQ stepped in. Emma does have a fear of anything and anyone new,but we’ve been working with her and she is getting better and no longer belly crawls into Petco. Big dogs frighten her, but she gets along perfectly with her foster siblings and loves tearing it up with her hairless foster brother. She is 8-10 pounds and 1-2 years old. She has a severe overbite but it doesn’t not affect her eating or chewing and it lends to her charm. She is working hard on her housebreaking skills. Emma will melt any heart when she climbs on your lap and puts her head against your chest and looks up at you with those brown eyes. She loves to sleep in bed, especially under the covers. She can be quite the clown, but we suspect that small children would probably frighten her.  She sleeps nicely at night in her crate. She will require a fenced yard as being frightened sends her running, and her adoptive home will need to be in proximity to her foster home of Wisconsin so she doesn’t have to endure too much travel or change and it will allow for an introduction.  For photos of this sweetie in her foster home, check her album:
