Ryker – ADOPTED!!

Posted Jun 5, 2017 at 1:23 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!!  Ryker is a good traveler.  He rode all the way from Arkansas to Wisconsin like a pro.   Ryker was found wearing a t-shirt and no collar.  We suspect he may have belonged to a trucker as he loves men, would only eat people food and enjoys riding on the dash.  We’ve managed to get him on dog food and he has learned that riding on the seat is just as nice as riding on the dash.  He does love to look out the window, so he would appreciate a booster seat.  He is 10 pounds, but was a little thin.  We estimate him to be maybe 4-6, but he plays like a puppy and sometimes still tries to mouth, but his foster mom is working on that.  He gets a long great with his foster brother and they play all day, so he would really like another dog to play with.  He is very fast and loves to run and run so we will be seeking a home with a fenced yard for him.   He is housebroken.  He does OK in a crate, but really prefers to sleep with his person when he can.  Ryker would be a great dog for just about every home.  He has not been “cat scanned” yet, but almost every cat is bigger than he is. Ryker has a tiny little bob tail.  He is a wonderful little dog and surprising someone didn’t move heaven and earth to find this fantastic fellow.  For more photos of Ryker in his foster home, click here:

Holly – ADOPTED!!

Posted Jan 26, 2017 at 5:11 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!!  Holly is a sweetheart of a dog who has had a very rough start in life.  Despite that, she is the most loving dog you will ever meet.  She is barely a year old and was allowed to become pregnant.  She gave birth to 7 puppies, and her elderly owners could not properly care for her, so she and the pups were surrendered to rescue.  She was wasting away to nothing, taking care of her babies as best she could.  She weighed only 15 pounds and every bone was visible when she was surrendered to rescue, and she is now a healthy weight with a good diet and proper care.  She has weaned her pups, and now it’s time for Holly to be taken care of like she deserves.  Holly is a beautiful sable color and has tipped ears and a natural bob tail.  She loves to be outside, chasing squirrels and looking for moles, and just napping in the sunshine.  Holly also loves to play and tussle with the other dogs in her foster home.  Because she loves to be outside, we would prefer for her to have a fenced back yard.  Holly was not kept on heart worm preventative, and so she has a very light case of heart worms.  She will be treated as soon as possible, and will also be spayed before she goes to her new home.  Holly has been a perfect mother to her pups.  Now it’s time for Holly to find the loving home she deserves.  For photos of Holly and her pups, click here:

Nick – ADOPTED!!

ADOPTED!!  Nick is one of the pups rescued with his mother and siblings when their elderly owners could not care for them.  Nick’s date of birth is 11-11-16, and he is just a bit over 9 pounds at 16 weeks of age.  His mother is 15 pounds, so we expect him to be about that size when fully grown. He has had all of his  his age-appropriate shots and has been neutered.  Nick is one of the few pups in the litter with a full tail, and he’s not afraid to wag it!  Of the three remaining pups, he is the most cuddly, and loves to be held while he catches a quick nap.  Adopters of Nick’s siblings have reported to us that these pups are extremely smart, and are learning basic obedience at an amazing rate.  Nick is eating kibble, and is working hard on his housebreaking skills.  All he needs a family of his own.  For more photos of Nick and his siblings, click here:

ADOPTED!!  Peppermint is one of the puppies in the ResQ Christmas litter.  She was born on 11/11/16, and weighs about 9 pounds at 16 weeks old.  She is friendly and social, and has a natural bob tail.  Peppermint is curious, like all puppies, and loves to shred paper!  (a terrier trait)  She is the bravest of the three remaining puppies, and the most athletic, so she is usually the one in trouble!  All of the pups who have been adopted are reportedly VERY smart, and Peppermint is no exception.  She is eating dry kibble, and all she lacks is a home of her own.  She has had all her age-appropriate shots and has been spayed.   For more photos of Peppermint and her siblings, click here:  http://ImageEvent.com/coram/hollyspups

ADOPTED!!  Noelle (middle pup) is one of the girls in the ResQ Christmas litter, and is one of the most social of the group.  She is active and curious, just like any other puppy!  Noelle has a natural bob tail and a “starter button” in the middle of her forehead.  She would be a great addition to almost any home.  Noelle was born on 11/11/16 and was surrendered to rescue because the elderly owners could not take care of them.  Noelle weighs about 8 pounds at 16 weeks old, and has had all her age-appropriate shots and has been spayed.  She is working hard on housebreaking skills, and sleeps through the night without a peep.  The adopters of her siblings have reported back to us that these puppies are VERY intelligent and are stars in puppy kindergarten.   For more photos of Noelle and her siblings, click here:  

Mouse – ADOPTED!!

Posted Nov 28, 2016 at 8:47 am in Latest News

mouseADOPTED!!  As you can see, this pretty little girl named Mouse is a long-legged rat terrier. She is estimated to be over 4 yrs old and is a petite 10 pounds.  Mouse is housebroken, crate-trained and is walking nicely on the leash.  She is very quiet and rarely makes a sound unless someone knocks on the front door.  Mouse does great on long car rides and RV trips, and loves to play outdoors!   Just toss a ball and watch her just light up with happiness!  This sweetie is a velcro-dog, wherever you go, she wants to be right there next to you.  She will do best in a home with children 10 and older, as she is very frightened of little children.  We don’t know what happened to her in her past, but maybe children were not so nice to her, leaving her frightened of small hands and quick movements by little people.  She is friendly with other dogs (with proper introduction) and has shown no signs of aggression with the stray cats.  Anyone interested in a loving, quiet lapdog…this is your girl!  She wants nothing but to be loved and love in return.  For more photos of little Mouse in her foster home, click here:

Rudy – ADOPTED!!

rudy

ADOPTED!!  Rudy (short for Rudolph) is approximately 3 to 4 years old and is a chihuahua/ rat terrier mix. Rudy is a sweet little boy weighing in at 11 lbs. He is great with all the other dogs but does chase the cat for fun. He is shy when you first meet him, but attaches quickly and wants to be petted and loved on. Rudy loves covering you with kisses . Rudy has some separation anxieties and is only happy if he can sleep in bed with you, otherwise he gets nervous and will bark.  We believe he came from an abusive situation, so he needs time to be sure you wont hurt him. He is house broken and rides great in the car. He seems to be having an issue relieving himself on the leash, but does fine in a fenced yard.  Rudy is nervous of fast movements at first so we would recommend children over 10 years old.  His favorite thing is belly rubs and he knows how cute he looks when he rolls over for them. He will make your heart melt.  Rudoph really wants a family of his own. Rudolph is ready to pack his bags for a new life with you!  For more photos of Rudy, click here:

Nico – ADOPTED!!

Posted Nov 21, 2016 at 8:46 am in Latest News

nico1ADOPTED!!  Meet Nico!  Nico is a dapper little Rat Terrier who weighs 19 pounds.  He was surrendered at a kill shelter along with his brother Bentley.  Nico and Bentley share a strong bond, sticking together like glue!  They were rescued by a whole team of volunteers; including friends of the shelter that pulled them out to safety before their euthanization day, and volunteer pilots who flew them from SC to NC, all the way to their new foster home.  Since they have been in foster care they are learning to relax, open up, and play more independently.  Nico is more cautious when meeting new people and he gets along with the other dogs and older children in the home.  Nico is house trained and sleeps through the night.   His beautiful markings make him look like he is wearing a shiney black tuxedo.  He is one handsome guy!  Nico tested positive for heart worms, so he will not be ready for adoption until he finishes his treatment.  In the meantime, he is getting tons of love and he dreams of his new adoptive home and family.  It would be the sweetest dream possible if he could find his adoptive home with his brother Bentley.  For more photos of Bently in his foster home, click here:
