RAINBOW DOGS

Adoption Application
LueLue

LueLue
Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
Sex: Female (Spayed)
Age: 5 yrs
Weight: 56 lbs
Vaccinations: Current
Microchipped: Yes

LueLue's mom died leaving her with the boyfriend. He was unable to care for her after she developed a life-threatening illness (pyometra). She also had a skin infection. She was taken to our vet and when it was determined that she needed immediate surgery, he agreed to surrender her to Dr. M. He informed the vet that he really didn't want her. Dr.'s M & M decided that they were going to save her and re-home her. Rainbow received a call asking if she could be a Rainbow dog. They offered to cover the cost of all of her veterinary care (which we greatly appreciated). She had been boarded at the hospital until we finally found a very caring foster. She is now in a home and learning to be a family member. We also discovered that she was kept mostly outside with not much interaction with others. She was cat tested and didn't seem too interested so we think that she could learn to live with a cat. There were children at the previous home and stated that she was fine with children. We think she needs a home with older children as she is VERY energetic. She seems to be fine with other dogs which we will further determine when she starts her manners classes. She loves to run and play. She needs a family who will be patient and loving and is willing to continue her training so she can become the sweet dog that she is capable of.

If you are that special family, please contact Esther or Dallas at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net.

Lady Bug

Lady Bug
Breed: Terrier Mix
Sex: Female (Spayed)
Age: approx. 2 yrs
Weight: 49 lbs
Vaccinations: Current
Microchipped: Yes

Lady Bug was saved by 2 very caring people. She was dropped at a lady's home by one of her "friends". They disappeared and disconnected their phone leaving her with Lady Bug. The lady didn't have much and was having trouble taking care of her own 2 dogs and asked the 2 rescuers for help. They took her and bathed her, gave her flea prevention and asked Rainbow for help. Lady Bug was found to have a flea allergy dermatitis. She has been treated for that and given prevention. She is a love bug who gets along with other dogs and children. When cat tested, she showed too much interest in them so we won't adopt her to a home with cats...just for everyone's safety:-). She would love an active family who will "wear her out" :-).

If you want a loving, energetic little girl to add to your family, please contact Esther or Dallas at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net.

Ralphie

Ralphie

 

Ralphie
Special Needs: Blind
Breed: Beagle
Sex: Male (Neutered)
Age: approx. 5 yrs.
Weight: 30 lbs.
Vaccinations: Current
Microchipped: Yes

Little Ralphie was picked up as a stray in one of the surrounding counties. He is a very timid little man who gets along well with other dogs and cats. He is afraid of new people but is warming up to them as he becomes used to living inside with his loving fosters. The best home for Ralphie would be one with no small children. Older quiet children who are gentle would be best. We are slowly introducing him to being around other people in a pet store setting so he would also need a family who would be patient with him and show him lots of love. Training would be of benefit after he becomes acclimated to his new home. They don't come any sweeter that this little love bug.

If you are that very special family who would love to shower Ralphie with love and patience, please contact Esther or Dallas at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net.

Shiloh Shiloh

Shiloh

 

Shiloh
Breed: Hound/Beagle Mix
Sex: Female (Spayed)
Age: approx. 2 yrs
Weight: 33 lbs
Vaccinations: Current
Microchipped: Yes

Shiloh is a very shy girl who was beginning to come out of her shell with her family who adopted her in November 2016. They had fostered her since the previous August. We received a call recently, January 2017, from the family stating that they were returning her because she wasn't progressing adequately. She had chewed on the bed and was still having a few accidents. They also stated that she had been "a little aggressive" with their other two dogs. She never displayed any aggression when she was with the other group who had her. She had been attacked by a bassett hound at one event and went and hid in the corner without ever retaliating. She is getting better about walking outside and had become comfortable with her family. Shiloh needs a quiet home with no small children and a family who is willing to be patient with her and give her the time she needs to "learn the ropes".

If you are that special family, please contact Esther or Dallas at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net.

Reese with Melony Reese

 

Reese
Breed: Hound/Pit Bull Mix
Sex: Female (Spayed)
Age: 5 yrs.
Weight: 44 lbs.
Vaccinations: Current
Microchipped: Yes

Reese was due to be put down within hours of being pulled from a shelter in NC in April 2012. She was heartworm positive and very sick. She is completely healthy now and microchipped, spayed, and up-to-date on vaccinations. She is a Terrier/Hound mix around 5 years old and about 40 lbs. She is dog reactive and would benefit from training to help her overcome her fear of other dogs. She has not been around cats, so we're not sure how she would act. Reese has been around children ages 2-17 years and does fine with them. However, we probably would not recommend a home with small children because she does have a lot of energy. She tends to jump up on people, which we are working on. She is crate and housetrained. Reese needs to go a home with a family who is active because she loves to run with her foster mom. She does well on a leash. She loves to play, but also loves to cuddle. Reese is a survivor and looking for her forever family.

If you are that special family, please call Esther or Dallas at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net.

Reese Reese Harper and Reese Reese

Reeses

Reeses 
Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
Sex:  Male (Neutered)
Age: 8 yrs
Weight: 52 lbs 
Vaccinations: Current
Microchipped: Yes

Reeses is a fun loving clown. His favorite thing to do is jump. He would be great for agility or a runner who needs a partner. Learning tricks comes easy for this smart special boy. He does the "commando crawl", sit, down, shake hands, roll over among other things. He loves the clicker and playing with a box. Reeses is crate trained and house trained. Despite being abandoned, he loves people but is too energetic for young children. Older children would be a better match. Playing with other dogs is something that he could do all day long. Cats are another story. He thinks of them as squeaky toys and therefore shouldn't be adopted to anyone with cats.

If you want a fun-loving clown to keep you on your toes, please call Dallas or Esther at 757-583-8777 or email rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net.

Angel

Angel

Angel
Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
Sex:  Female (Spayed)
Age: 9 yrs
Weight: 61 lbs 
Vaccinations: Current
Microchipped: Yes

Angel is a very sweet 9 yr. old female American Staffordshire Terrier. She is spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. She weighs 61 lbs. and wants to be a lap dog. She is crate trained, house trained and knows sit, down, stay, and her left and right. She loves people and children; however, she is selective about which doggy friends she plays with. When she wants something, or wants to go out, she sings. She has a very good voice. She was abandoned by her irresponsible owner with her 10 one-week old puppies. Her pups have been adopted, but not her. She desperately wants her “forever” home. Angel needs a family who is experienced with this breed and will give her the love and patience she deserves.

If you have room in your heart and home, please contact Dallas or Esther at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net.
