kelseyADOPTED!!  Kelsey and her housemate Katie were surrendered to rescue when their human parents had to make a move and could not take them.  Both of these girls were well loved and taken care of, and ResQ has been in communication with their former owners, who are very happy that the girls are taken care of.  Kelsey is being fostered in Arkadelphia, AR, and is a beautiful chocolate and white girl with amber eyes.  She is especially fond of men, but seems to love everyone.  Her former owner reports that she has been around small children, but will prefer to seek out a quiet place while they are visiting.  So a home with very young children would probably not be the best environment for her.  She is housebroken and uses a doggie door.  She needed a good teeth cleaning, but we took care of that.  Kelsey loves, loves, loves to play with toys and retrieve them.  She will drop one at your feet and “yaroooo” at you until you pick it up and toss it for her.  She’s a lap dog superb, and so far as not shown any behavioral problems that need to be corrected.  She LOVES to take a ride in the car, and mainly just wants to be with her people.  She weighs 12 pounds, and is probably a pound overweight, but she is healthy and has a lot of life and love to give a lucky family.  To see her photos, click here: 

Snoopy – ADOPTED!!

ADOPTED!!  Here’s Snoopy!  This adorable little guy (at only 9 pounds) lost his home through no fault of his own.  He is friendly and playful, and housebroken with a doggie door.  Snoopy is a “low rider” or a Type B Rat Terrier, with short little legs.  He makes up for it with big ears!  Snoopy is such a comical little guy, he will twirl and bounce when offered a treat, and wants to be curled up in your lap when he’s not patrolling the back yard for pesky squirrels.  Snoopy’s owner was forced to give him up by an apartment manager who evidently dislikes dogs.  Both the owner and the town’s ACO contacted ResQ right away, so Snoopy has not had to endure shelter life.  He is a happy, peppy little guy who will put a smile on your face!  Even his little tail is comical, it has a kink in the end of it.  But that doesn’t keep him from wagging it constantly!  If you are looking for a great family pet, please look twice at this little guy.  But keep in mind, he doesn’t lay on top of a dog house like his namesake, he prefers a recliner or a comfy doggie bed.  And he has a bad habit of snacking on house shoes left lying around.  But who can stay mad at that face?  For photos of Snoopy in his foster habitat, click here:  

Romeo – ADOPTED!!

romeoADOPTED!!  This sweet boy named himself.  Upon meeting him, his foster mom said…”This little boy is a real lover, a Romeo.”  He is super sweet and affectionate, and soaks up love like a big sponge.  He is a bi-color boy with beautiful erect ears and a full tail that he wags constantly.  He is housebroken with a doggie door, and so far hasn’t shown any bad habits that need to be corrected.  When you pet him he closes his eyes and enjoys every minute of it.  He plays with the other young dogs in his foster home, and sometimes enjoys waking the humans up with a squeakly toy at 6 a.m.  (assuming you don’t get up ready to play!)  He came from a shelter in Jonesboro, Arkansas, and the volunteers went the extra mile to transport him to safety.  He is a young dog, probably between 1 and 2 years old, and weighs only 12 pounds.  He loves to play with toys, and go for fun rides in the car.  We haven’t tested him with kids, but he has such a docile, loving nature, we think he would be fine with children.  We would be happy to test him if we need to.  It’s always hard to understand why such a good dog can end up homeless, but you can change that, if you have just a little extra lap room for a boy named Romeo.  For more photos of him in his foster home, click here: 

Bindi – ADOPTED!!

bindi1ADOPTED!!  Hello mates!  Say G’day to our new foster girl, Bindi!  This sweet girl ended up homeless when her owner died, but ResQ stepped in to help!  Bindi is a love bug and a playful girl, but is always ready to relax with you, and maybe share your pillow if you let her.  She listens to commands well, is housebroken and crate trained.  She loves to play ball and is eager to catch the Frisbee.  A big wiggle butt, at 32 lbs, she is a tall girl, too measuring 17″ at her shoulder.  She is probably a Jack Russell Terrier mix and approx. 5 yrs old.  Bindi is very smart and learned her new name quickly… she even helped pick it out!  She is good with other dogs and she loves children!  We think she misses the kids in her former home.  She is even good with cats!  This sweet girl loves everyone.  But, If YOU don’t like kisses, then this girl is not for you.  THIS girl loves to LOVE on you and enjoys belly rubs to no end!  Although she wasn’t kept on heart worm preventative, she thankfully didn’t contract the disease.   She is fully vaccinated now, clean and safe until she finds her forever owners to love and care for this special soul. Bindi could use some leash training, but she is very intelligent and learns quickly. This, and possibly a suspect for stealing tissues out of the garbage cans, would be the only areas her foster home could say she would need some training with at this time…  otherwise, she is the perfect dog!  Check back for updates as this Aussie settles into her foster home!  And be sure and enjoy the photos in her album:
