Meet T-Bo!

Check out this little Pug boy!! T-Bo is just 4 years old and weighs about 13 pounds. He has obviously not had the best life and care in the world. His rescuers pulled T-Bo from a shelter where he had been dumped by his owners. He has some skin infections that are being cleared up with some medicine from our vet and some special medicated baths.

T-Bo is already looking so much better!! His coat is already improving and he should not have any problems with his skin and wrinkles other than what normally affects pugs. A family that is knowledgeable about the Pug breed would probably be the best fit for T-Bo. He has a very sweet and happy personality. T-Bo adores people and is a happy and friendly dog.

He gives kisses to everyone and will follow you around all day just for the joy of being by your side. :) T-Bo is also good with the other dogs at the rescue and cats. He would also be fine in a family with children. Are you looking for that dog that you can rescue and save from a neglectful life? T-Bo fits that criteria perfectly!! And he has a sweet and happy personality for you to enjoy!!

We found T-Bo through the Rescue Farm in Poland, Indiana.

Meet Sparrow!

Sparrow is an adorable, but quirkly little dog whose nickname is 'Secret Squirrel' because she runs around like she's on a mission whose purpose is known only to her. You may want to look into extra Delta faucets to keep her hydrated!!!

She's friendly once she gets to know you (enjoys being petted and will give kisses), but wary of strangers.

Sparrow gets along with other dogs but is submissive and sometimes gets picked on by others, so she is quite happy being with alone or with one other compatible dog. She comes and kennels up on command and is well behaved in the house.

We found Sparrow through Save the Strays Animal Rescue in Bethune, South Carolina.

Meet Jackson!

Jackson appears to be a small poodle/portugese water dog mix. Since he will remain small, we think the mix may be toy poodle/portugese water dog. He weighs about 15-20 pounds, is about 9-10 months old as of November 2009, and the vet says he should either stay close to his weight or max out about 25 pounds.

He has portugese water dog features (loose curl/wavy black hair, webbed toes, white bib, 3 white socks, and a long tail with a very small white tip). His name is Jackson, he is an extremely handsome young man, is very lovable and loves to play fetch with the ball. Since he's a young one you won't need to look into any life insurance rate for him :) As you can imagine, at this age, he is full of energy. He is presently going through the shelter training program.

We met Jackson through Georgia Poodle Rescue in Milton, Georgia.

Happy Holidays!

All of us at RESCUE ME wish you and yours the Happiest of Holidays and a Very Prosperous New Year!!!

Meet Phoenix!

Phoenix is a peppy girl...with lots of love to give someone.

She is up to date on shots, neutered, microchipped and waiting for a home. She is only about 30 pounds and is 4 years old. And with you're help maybe she won't have to look for jobs in philly?

We found Phoenix through Pet Tender Angels in Greenville, South Carolina. They are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit that provides rescue and rehabilitation for homeless animals, focusing on feral, stray, abandoned, and special needs dogs. Pet Tender Angels gives a second chance to animals who would otherwise have no other chance.

Meet Cowboy!

This sweet, fuzzy 10 year old cowpoke is easy on the leash and housetrained. When he’s not out on the range, Cowboy is a real cuddler. You'll want to pick up a box cutter cause you'll want to shower him with gifts when you bring him home!

Cowboy’s owner had a stroke, so he ended up at the shelter.
Now he’s happy to be cooling his heels at Muttville, where he’s hoping to rustle up a forever home.

Cowboy always lived in a fairly mellow environment , so we would prefer that for him! Though super affectionate he can get grumpy, too long in the saddle, so an adult only household for this boy!

We found Cowboy through Muttville in San Francisco, California.

Can you help?

As part of Johann's Second Annual Howling Howliday Giveaway we are helping my shelter raise some needed funds to help their rescues find a furever, wonderful home just like I did back in 2004.

We are working hard to reach our goal of $500, but are only 25% of goal. Can you help? Just a few $$$ would go a long way...and there's still time to enter my giveaway and win some pawsome prizes!

If you can, just click on the donate button below and help some pups from my former shelter - the Southside Animal Shelter - this Holiday season!

Meet Demi!

This is Demi. She is a one year old Belgian Malinois mix, who originally came into rescue with her sister, and was adopted but then returned when my owners were moving. She is very sweet and social and still very puppyish.

She'll need some help settling into a new routine when she finds her furever home. Demi would benefit from a refresher course in potty training, and crate training. After all, she's still a puppy, and does like to explore and get into mischief! She would be at the top of her class. Just look how nicely she's sitting for her picture!

We found Demi through Wayside Waifs Animal Shelter in Kansas City, Missouri.

Meet Gypsy!

Gyspy is about 5 months old. She's an American Staffordshire Terrier. She is one of the most affectionate dogs you can imagine! She is extremely obedient and VERY smart. She's beautiful too; very healthy and a sweet face.

If you give her a chance she would love nothing better than to crawl up in your lap. She is more than willing to please and wants your approval so much! She needs leash training but knows how to sit and stay for short periods. She does great with other animals and loves everyone she meets.

We found Gypsy through the Kokomo Humane Society in Kokomo, Indiana.

Meet Abby!

Abby is about a 1 year old female long legged, broken coat JRT. The rescue organization has acquired several dogs from a very unusual circumstance.

The owner lived out of his truck breeding JRTS, he passed away and the police found him in the truck with 7 JRTs. They have all been placed into rescue.

Abby is active, but doesn't need any drug rehab because you'll be linked with the new FDA pet health and safety widget! She's just a bit confused right now, she is accustomed to being at the state parks and people petting her, she lived with a lot of JRTs and is becoming accustomed to new dogs. She is passive, we think housebroken, likes walks, my guess would be no cats.

We found Abby through South by Southwest Jack Russell Terrier Rescue, Inc., in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

Meet Aladdin!

This dog is no street urchin - Aladdin is a diamond in the rough, a true Prince! Aladdin is a royal looking soft yellow terrier mix who is very friendly, well behaved and does enjoy playing with other dogs and toys. Aladdin is 4-6 months old and 25 pounds (as of 10/11).

Very friendly and fun - loves all other dogs and cats and children -- making him an ideal family companion. Long walks and trips to dog park are in his future (and magic carpet rides if available).

We found Aladdin through Paws 4 You Rescue, Inc., in Miami, Florida.

Meet Kyla!

Kyla likes to run and play. Kyla is a 11 month old little Jack Russell Terrier Mix with lots of energy.

She is super sweet & loves giving kisses. She would be an ideal playmate for a youth. She would excel at Frisbee, Flyball or Agility.

We found Kyla through Oconee County Animal Shelter in Seneca, South Carolina.

For more information about Kyla, click here!

Meet Dot!

Dot just arrived in Cincinnati from Naples, Florida. She is quite the sweetheart and just wants to be friends with everyone. She is almost a pup – being only 19 months old. Dot is quite stunning – white chest, white feet and a white spot on her nose. She never raced or trained – maybe because all she wants to do is play. She discovered the stuffed toys immediately upon arrival.

Her hobbies are playing with stuffed toys and running in the yard. She will do best with a fenced in yard and another dog to play with. This lovely girl gets along well with cats and other dogs and is hoping to find her loving forever family and soft couch very soon!

We found Dot through Joey's Greyhound Friends in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Meet Barron!

Barron came from a local shelter and is looking for his forever home. He is a big boy but gentle with his human companion.

He will patiently stand beside you and be happy just to have your hand on his head for security. However he is not good with other male dogs or smaller dogs, but he loves the ladies. He just needs a home that loves big boys.

We found Barron through N.A.B.S. (Noah's Ark Bayou Santuary Animal Rescue) in Alvin, Texas.

Meet Peyton!

Peyton came to rescue through a friend who found him stray. He is still pretty thin and a little timid when meeting new people. Once he realizes that he is not going to be hurt he warms up pretty quick. He may be mixed with something, but they're not sure what.

He is about 8 lbs and probably won't get much bigger(except for filling out). He has the most beautiful eyes that are light brown almost yellow. He has a very sweet disposition as soon as he is comfortable. He rides well, does good on a leash, and loves to cuddle. He is mostly housebroke. He will probably do best in a house with no more than 1 or 2 other dogs. He does get along well with dogs and cats.

We found Peyton through 911 Pet Rescue, Inc., in Centerpoint, Indiana.

For more information about Peyton, click here!

Meet Honey!

Honey is possibly a Schnauzer/Cairn mix as she has long legs. She is adorable and extremely smart. She needs a little help in the housebreaking area but she should pick it up quickly.

She does not like cats and she is not good with the other dogs. And needs to be with older children please.

We met Honey through Westie/Cairn Terrier Rescue of SW Ohio in Williamsburg, Ohio.

For more information about Honey, click here!

Meet Harriet!

Harriet is an American Hairless Terrier (formerly known as a Hairless Rat Terrier). This breed looks similar to the Chinese Crested Dog.

She is a young spayed female. Harriet is sweet and quiet. She tolerates cats as long as they do not bother her. She is housebroken.

We found Harriet through Whiskers, Tails and Ferals in Napa, California.

For more information about Harriet, click here!

Meet Dixie!

Dixie is a sweet and lazy old bloodhound who is a lay at your feet kind of dog. Although she loves to get petted, go for walks, and take rides in the car, her very favorite things to do are eat and sleep!

Dixie does well with all dogs she has met and she tolerates even the rowdy ones, although she is protective of her food around other dogs and must be fed separately. She has also lived with cats and does fine with them too!

Dixie has always lived indoors, and came to APB when her owner had to move from a house to an apartment and couldn't bring Dixie along. She is totally house trained and does not need to be crated. She'd like nothing better than to stick with you on a code night close to the furnace with new furnace filters.

However, she will counter surf shamelessly when home alone and has a knack for getting items that her foster mom was sure were out of her reach, so her new family might want to keep her in a bedroom or other comfortable area where no food is available. Dixie is used to sleeping on the couch or in bed.

We found Dixie through Animal Placement Bureau in Lansing, Michigan.

For more information about Dixie, click here!

Meet Coda!

Coda is very sweet and loves everyone! He seems to be house trained. Does great on a leash, good with other pets and kids. Coda is house trained.

We found Coda through Pet Connection in Falmouth, Kentucky.

For more information about Coda, click here!

Meet Joy!

Joy is an energetic little girl that loves to play!

She loves a good run and needs to go to a home that will keep her exercised. She is pretty good with most dogs but is a very in your face type of dog and some dogs do not like that.

She's a sweet girl but needs an experienced home to handle her energy.

We found Joy through Autumn Acres in Kansas City, Kansas.

For more information about Joy, click here!

Meet Cesar!

Cesar is almost ready for adoption. He is the happiest little guy. He was surrendered to rescue from a breeder. He was very matted when they got him so they had to shave him, but his fur is coming back nicely. He is ready for the cushy life.

Cesar loves all attention and would love a home that lets him hang out on the couch and just be a pet. He is around 4-5 years old.

We found Cesar through Midwest Dog Rescue Network in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

For more information about Cesar, click here!

Meet Max!

Max is a male Shar Pei, 4-5 years old, red fawn colored brushcoat and weighs about forty pounds. He can only be described as a lovable, mellow friend, who enjoys long walks, tummy scratched and in return gives unconditional love.

Nothing would make him happier than to simply keep you company, be in a corner in your kitchen, watch television with you, and or listening attentively to anything you had to share. He is and needs to be a wonderful companion dog and can adjust to another dog’s presence, but would rather be the center of attention.

He is allergic to meat, but has no problem with poultry blended treats and food. Max has a chronic ear infection which is treatable, flushed every day or two (he likes to have this attention). Max can adjust easily to a new environment with just a little patience for him to get to know you, once he is assured of your steady companionship. It will be a lasting friendship.

We found Max through Rescue A Shar-Pei (RASP)in Porter Beach, Indiana.

For more information about Max, click here!

Meet Popeye!

Popeye is a beautiful American Bulldog. At about 2-3 years old, he is a huge people-lover and desperately wants to be a member of a forever family.

He knows all of his commands (sit, lay down, shake, go to bed), is house broken, and behaves very nicely having free reign of the house. You may want to pick up some Symantec support so you can get this cutie on the Internet!

He is currently living with three dogs in his foster home and is happy to romp in the backyard with them. However, he tends to guard his toys, so he may be happiest in a home where he is the only dog or a home that can work with him on sharing.

He is very friendly with other dogs and people when he's out on his walks, and is very relaxed when surrounded by large crowds.

Popeye was abandoned by his previous owners and left to be euthanized at a high-kill facility in Indiana. He has been extremely confused and lonely since being left by his family, and wants so badly to be loved and back in a home. He is an amazing dog just waiting to unite with a new family.

We met Popeye through One Tail at a Time in Chicago, Illinois.

For more information about Popeye, click here!

Meet McGruff!

The minute you meet McGruff you can't help but fall in love with his wiry fur and cute beard. He is a distinguished gentleman approximately 6 yrs. of age. Although small in stature, he is large in personality. He is great with other dogs, cats and children. Give McGruff some time to bond to you and he will be a friend for life.

He is an outdoor dog and feels most comfortable in spaces where he does not feel confined. McGruff would be perfect for a family or older couple that could have McGruff with them most of the time. He is fearful of being left alone. Although an outdoor dog he is guilty of loving the pleasures of a warm bed inside the house at night.

We found McGruff through Second Chance Animal Adoption in Bonners Ferry, Idaho.

For more information about McGruff, click here!

Meet Kody!

Kody sure has come a long way since coming to rescue. He is now totally housebroken, knows how to use a doggie door and is playing great with other dogs (from a 12 pound pug puppy to a 165 pound rottie). He shares his toys and food and doesn't have a mean bone in his body. Kody is just a great puppy and is most certainly ready for a home to call his own.

Kody is an absolutely precious little wooly husky mix boy, approximately 8 months old. Kody was surrendered to rescue by his owner who had him tethered to a tree in the backyard since Kody was a baby. Kody's coat was so matted that we had to have him shaved all the way down.

Kody is currently in a foster home in Georgia where he is getting lots of attention, love and playtime. Since he had spent his whole life by himself he still does not know proper doggie etiquette but being a smart boy he is learning quickly. He already knows "sit" and is walking pretty well on a leash.

Kody is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations and heartworm prevention. Now all he needs is a loving home that will give him the attention and structure that he so richly deserves.

We met Kody through Rotts 'n Pups Northern Rescue in North Haledon, New Jersey.

Meet Mallory!

This is Mallory, a little Maltese. She only weighs about 7 pounds and is about 7 years old. She is really sweet and quiet, and loves to hang out with people and to snuggle. Are you available to snuggle? Just wait until she gets her makeover.
