Rescue Me ID: 16-12-02-00080Prince Charles (male)

American Eskimo Dog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Up until recently, our stunning Prince Charles, led a serene, sedate life as the only dog, in a quiet home with a senior. He was dearly loved, but this 4 year old had not been very well socialized. Prince Charles's owner moved out of the country and left him with her son, who called us for help, upon learning his landlord would not allow a dog in the apartment. The rescue process has been quite a shock to Prince Charles's system. When we first picked him up, he was extremely shy and skittish, but over the course of the last few weeks he has warmed up beautifully, in part thanks to some of our other Eskie Fosters, who have included him in ... (Read More)their pack. He is learning how to be a dog again and enjoying the companionship of the pack. Prince Charles is a stunning, standard sized American Eskimo Dog. At an optimal weight of 30 pounds, he is a medium sized dog. He has a beautiful, full Eskie coat, in great shape and soft to the touch, with a light undercoat and some faint biscuit markings. As Eskie lovers would expect, he does shed a good deal and blows his coat a couple times a year. Prince Charles has a submissive temperament: he is shy and avoids situations that unnerve him. He would make an ideal companion for an active single or couple who have some Eskie experience, and have the patience to allow Prince Charles to warm up at his own pace. We don't think Prince Charles would be happy in a bustling family environment, with lots of people coming and going. He seems to prefer solitude and a one to one connection with doting humans. We think he would thrive in a multi-dog home with one or two other balanced dogs, because he seems to pick up his cues from a stable pack. He would also be fine in a feline home. Prince Charles has done well with his obedience work and knows most of his commands. He is well on the way to becoming a Canine Good Citizen. Motivated adopters can easily take him the rest of the way. Eskies tend to relish their obedience training, and it is one of the best ways to channel their considerable intelligence, and provide much needed mental stimulation. Obedience work is a wonderful way to bond with Prince Charles, as he is both treat and praise motivated and very easy to handle. Prince Charles has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He is in optimal health, and is neutered. He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus). He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-15-00118Jackie (female)

Redbone Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Our lovely Jackie has been with us for a few months now and is slowly coming into her own. Four years old, Jackie joined our rescue after spending some time in an overcrowded animal control facility. Her owner had dropped off several dogs to the shelter, claiming that her landlord no longer wanted dogs in building. As an owner surrendered dog, Jackie only had 48 hours to attract the attention of the rescue liasons, who might network her to a Rescue group before she was relegated to the Euthanasia list. And, that's how Jackie wound up with us. We are suckers for a pretty face and a pair of big brown eyes. Jackie did not fare well in the ... (Read More)shelter, she was very shy and fearful. The chaos and uncertainty of her situation left her rattled. Despite pretty good behavior evaluations, Jackie seemed quite shaken by the shelter experience. She came to us shy and reserved, but now has blossomed into a fun loving pup, eager for human connection. Jackie appears to be primarily a stunning Redbone Coonhound. She is a medium sized dog, weighing 32 pounds, smaller than purebred Coonhounds, so we suspect she may have a bit of Beagle in her genetic make up. Her tri-color coat is russet red, with brown ears, white tuxedo markings on her chest, and delicate white 'socks.' Jackie has a lean, leggy physique, with a proud stance, and all of the wonderful attributes of a Scent Hound. Jackie would be the ideal choice for an active single or couple, who's lifestyle allows for Jackie to participate front and center. We believe that Jackie's former home was too chaotic and unstructured for her sensitive nature, and she was overwhelmed with other dogs and children. While she is a loving and sweet dog, it seems that when faced with so much daily chaos, Jackie became a wallflower instead of a shining Superstar. Jackie craves a strong human connection and would thrive in a home with fewer dogs and people, so that she could enjoy the Limelight. Her ideal situation would be a quiet, laid back home with perhaps one other calm, well-trained dog or cat. We sense some insecurity in Jackie's delicate nature. We have focussed on confidence building by activating her Scent Hound instincts. She enjoys leisurely walks where she can take in nature, but she can quickly adapt to a jogging pace. Jackie is an active dog who needs mental and physical stimulation. She has a moderate energy level, and would make a great walking or running companion. She would be a great addition to camping or hiking trips. The time she spends outdoors seems to thrill her. Jackie has progressed nicely on her obedience training, and she has the potential to reach Canine Good Citizen certification. She's already passed many of the tests and and has learned her basic obedience sequence. Jackie is very treat motivated and easy to train. She may become occasionally distracted by the random scents of nature, but she redirects nicely, and seems to enjoy her training sessions. Ongoing focus on obedience training, will provide Jackie the leadership and mental stimulation that she needs to thrive. Jackie has good house manners, and is nearly house trained and crate trained. Her former owners only took her out once a day, and relied on wee wee pads for other potty breaks. We have been successful in transitioning her potty habits to outdoors, but Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home. Jackie is in good health and has recently been spayed She has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitus, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza, coronavirus), and Canine Flu. She has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed, microchipped and is on preventatives for Heartworm and Flea/Tick. If you are interested in Jackie, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info.

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-19-00106Little Bit (female)

Miniature Pinscher    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    If the Miniature Pinscher is the 'King of the Toys,' then our Little Bit is the breed's Queen Dowager. She has a comedic quality that is an irreverent blend of old school Rosie O'Donnell and Maggie Smith. Little Bit is bold and intense, and her antics will keep her family in stitches. Ten year old Little Bit came to us in a shell shocked state, after her callous owner had dumped her in a high kill, big city animal control facility. It is always unsettling for a senior dog to lose his or her home, but the stark shelter experience is especially frightening. The stress level in the shelter took its toll on Little Bit, and she did not weather ... (Read More)the change well. Fortunately, she was rerouted to our rescue shortly before she hit the euthanasia list. Little Bit has relaxed and settled into foster care nicely. She's an outgoing dog, and frankly, a bit of a budinski. Little Bit happily minds everybody else's business and she seems to get away with it most of the time. In the dog pack, she does her best to try and maintain social order, and she is fairly successful, but sometimes she will come across a much larger dog who will put her in her place. Luckily for Little Bit, she has enough common sense to back down. Little Bit would be a great choice for an active adult couple, or energetic retiree, who enjoy a spirited small dog. She is extremely loving and affectionate: the perfect lapdog. She would also do well in an easy going family, with older, dog savvy kids. She could easily join a multi-dog home, and would make an excellent companion for another senior dog, who may have recently lost his or her housemate. Little Bit would probably do well in a feline home with dog savvy cats tolerant of a pushy canine personality. Technically, at the age of ten, Little Bit is a senior, but her energy level suggests a much, much younger dog. She has a lively, vibrant personality, and a pretty high energy level. She needs at least one to two brisk leash walks a day, in addition to frequent potty breaks. Little Bit would be a fantastic walking companion for an active senior or couple. Exercise is important for Little Bit because she loves to snack, and if adopters do not monitor her diet and exercise, she will blow up like a balloon! Little Bit is house trained and crate trained, but adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home. She is spayed, and in good health. We have done exhaustive Vet work, and health screening to take the guesswork out of adopting an older dog. Our vet noted a moderate heart murmur, but additional bloodwork completely ruled out heart disease. Little Bit has a slightly underactive thyroid, which has been treated with low cost daily thyroid meds. She has had a complete dental procedure, and tolerated anesthesia well. Her teeth are in great shape, and that is key to longevity for a senior dog. Little Bit has been vaccinated for rabies, DA2PP (distemper, adrenovirus, parvo and parainfluenza), and canine flu. She has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed, and microchipped. If you are interested in Little Bit, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call/text Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info.

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-06-00083Debonair (male)

Miniature Pinscher Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Debonair came to us three years ago in a fluster of gender panic and with a chip on his shoulder. Our shelter contacts prepared us for a female Min Pin named Debbie, and in strutted this fantastico hombre, oozing testosterone and machismo. Upon meeting 'Debbie', someone commented that he was quite debonair, in his 'tuxedo' since his white chest markings and 'socks,' gave him a dandy look, and so the name stuck. Debonair was abandoned twice by nitwit owners to a high kill animal control facility, where he became absolutely terrified. He is extremely lucky to have exited those premises alive. Typically owner surrendered dogs have a tough ... (Read More)time in the shelter, after losing their beloved family members. Even a sub par owner is a hero in his dog's eyes. And, Debonair had to experience twice, this abandonment, and its lasting trauma. Debonair came to us fearful and untrusting, and we worked hard to win him over. It was clear at the beginning, that Debonair's former owners had neglected him. In fact, it didn't seem as though anybody had spent any time with him at all. As we evaluated Debonair, we clearly saw the big Min Pin attitude, but also saw a strong resemblence to the Jack Russell Terrier. Debonair is a short, stocky dog weighing 20 pounds, and his physique seems to be JRT. He has mostly classic Min Pin black and tan coloring, with unusual white markings, that suggest this breed mix. Debonair has really blossomed in foster care. Country life agrees with him, and he has caught his fair share of country mice. While initially suspicious of human attention, he now melts into a loving, gentle touch. Recently he lost his best buddy, Pepe, who has been adopted, and now, it's Debonair's turn. Debonair prefers calm to chaos, and enjoys spending quiet time with his chosen people. Nine years old, our Debonair has relaxed into a gentle soul, willing to let a Human Pack Leader call the shots. Debonair is best suited to experienced Min Pin or JRT lovers, who are willing to take charge, and continue Debonair on a moderate exercise and obedience regimen. Debonair is a medium energy dog, who needs reasonable exercise, at least two to three walks a day. He needs folks who will engage him and make him a big part of their lives. He loves his obedience training, and takes great pride and pleasure in completing the tasks, and will work for treats or praise. Obedience work seems to tire him out, almost as much as a brisk walk. Debonair would shine with the structured efforts of modedately active adults. He's not a good candidate for large families, and will likely intimidate small children and cats. He likes other dogs, and could easily join a multi-dog home with proper introduction. Debonair has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. Debonair is in excellent health, and is at a lean body weight. He is neutered, and has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, and microchipped. If you are interested in Debonair, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info.

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-02-00114Rex (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ruh Roh, Scoopy Doo, our grand, supercharged Rex, is a sight to behold. He is a spectacular mix of Great Dane and Boxer, with a comedic glint in his dreamy hazel eyes. Three year old Rex just came to us from a local Animal Shelter, where his owners dumped him with little explanation. Shelter staff found Rex to be a real sweetheart, in need of a dog savvy owner, who can provide the attention and exercise he needs. Rex is a large, tall dog, although he only weighs 65 pounds. His Great Dane DNA provides a lean, leggy physique, and large head, while the Boxer input broadens the forehead and chest. Although Rex does not look overly muscular, he ... (Read More)is a strong, powerful dog, and he requires some physical strength to handle. We have worked on his leash handling, and he responds well to basic correction, and has become easy to walk. Rex would be a great fit for an active family with older kids, 10 and up, who are all on the same page about meeting his training and exercise needs. Also, he would be a superstar in the active adult home, and would be a wonderful outdoors companion, whether it be walking, hiking, running, camping, etc. He is an energetic boy, who requires sufficient exercise in order to maintain his equilibrium. Rex loves to be the center of attention, and he's not going to be happy if he is ignored or relegated to a fenced-in backyard, without any action. We would like to see him continue up the path to Canine Good Citizenship, so that Rex can be in the thick of things, enjoying activities with his family. He could easily join a pack with another well-trained dog. We have not had him around cats, but we suspect that he would chase them beyond their comfort level. As a large boisterous youngster, we feel that Rex is just too much dog to interact safely with toddlers. Rex is progressing nicely with his obedience training. He has grasped all of the basic commands, and responds to both Positive Reinforcement and Leadership techniques. As a mix of large powerful breeds, Rex needs adopters to continue with his obedience work, and help him move forward toward Canine Good Citizenship certification. Rex is in excellent health and is neutered. He has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect the occasional accident as he transitions to a new home. Rex is vaccinated for rabies, parvo, adrenovirus, distemper, coronavirus, leptospirosis. He has been dewormed, and has tested negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been an appropriate heartworm and flea/tick prevention medications. If you are interested in our handsome Rex, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com, or call/text Denise at cell: 860-908-9738 for an adoption application. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-28-00075Jaxson (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our robust boy, Jaxson, is a whole lotta dog! He came to us from a young girl in our town who had lost her job and apartment. This young lady was in the process of reinventing herself, and asked us to watch Jaxson temporarily while she got her act together. We agreed, but now, six months later, her new life is not going to accommodate Jaxson, and we've been asked to find him a forever home. Jaxson is a compact, muscular mix of Beagle and Standard Dachshund. He came to us obese at 63 pounds, but has slimmed down nicely to 49. Jaxson has a stocky, muscular build with the characteristic short legs, paddle feet and elongated spine, as well as ... (Read More)the rich, russet coloring, that we see in Standard sized Dachshunds. We just love this dog! He has a fantastic personality and has made lightning progress in his training program. When we first met Jaxson, he was wary of strangers, and was not at all shy about expressing his opinion in inappropriate situations. Now, after some basic leadership and consistent training, Jaxson accompanies his Foster Dad on errands to Home Depot, Tractor Supply, etc, and is now welcome wherever he goes. Jaxson is accepting of strangers and is quick to submit for belly rubs. In the hands of motivated adopters, he could easily earn his Canine Good Citizen certification. Jaxson would be ideally suited to an active single or couple, who can meet his exercise and training needs. Jaxson is lively dog, and needs a couple of brisk leash walks each day, as well as consistent work on his obedience commands. He has a double dose of Scent Hound DNA and requires mental, as well as, physical stimulation to maintain balanced behavior. He needs a strong pack leader, who has the time and inclination to continue him on his path to Canine Good Citizenship. Jaxson could easily join another dog home with a pack that is balanced, socialized and well trained. We don't think he would be suitable for a busy family with children. Jaxson has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He is in optimal health and has been neutered. He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), and canine flu. He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, and microchipped.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-20-00086Sarge (male)

Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Sarge is a lovebug. He joined us a few months ago from a well-reputed local shelter where he had been put up for adoption and passed over. Sarge was found roaming the area as a stray, and at the age of five, found himself a guest in the local pound, where he made many friends. This handsome charmer peaked the interest of our shelter contact, Emily, who thought he'd be a good candidate for our Rescue. Sarge seems to be a Collie mix, graced with a lush, full coat, a full mane and pretty Collie tri-colors. But his stocky, muscular build suggest Australian Cattle Dog DNA. Sarge is a double dose of herding dog, so he definitely needs an ... (Read More)active lifestyle and a job. Herders are hardwired to work, and if his adopters do not give Sarge a job, he will practice his herding skills within the household. A bored, frustrated herding dog is a recipe for Mayhem. Exercise and obedience training are the keys to managing the Herding Breeds. Sarge is a high-energy dog, who would make a great running, walking or hiking partner. He's built for speed, but will adjust his pace to suit his Handler. He needs at least three brisk daily leash walks, in addition to focused playtime. Adopters can increase the intensity of a walk by outfitting Sarge with a dog backpack, loaded with water and a collapsable bowl. At each rest and water stop, Sarge will feel like he's got a job and will be quite proud of himself. Obedience training is essential to meeting the needs of a Herding dog. Sarge already knows all of his basic obedience commands, and is on the way to earning his Canine Good Citizenship Certification. Adopters should be able to take him the rest of the way with ease. Structure and obedience work go a long way in providing Sarge the mental and physical challenges that he needs. Sarge is best suited to an active adult home, with a dog savvy single or couple, who have the time and energy to give him his daily exercise. Tranquility and calm suit Sarge best. In a chaotic, hectic environment he becomes anxious and demonstrates herding behavior in order to maintain social order. In a calm environment, Sarge relaxes and enjoys quiet time with his people. Kids and cats may provide too much stimulation, but Sarge could easily join a multi-dog home. Sarge has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained, although adopters should expect to troubleshoot a few accidents during his transition to a new routine. He is in excellent health, and at an ideal lean body weight of 30 pounds. He has been neutered, and vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-19-00265Coffee (male)

American Eskimo Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Coffee was a tough nut to crack. He came to us with a gigantic chip on his shoulder, and we really had to work at earning his respect! Coffee was understandably peeved at his reversal of fortune, as his questionable owner dumped him in an overcrowded Animal Control facility when Coffee was just four years old. Coffee is the sort of dog who prefers the status quo, rather than 'go with the flow' change. The shelter experience was not kind to him, and he did not make many friends. Further, he had a rough time with the shelter kennel cough, and by the time he showed up on our radar he was on the Euthanasia List, and on his way to ... (Read More)full-fledged pneumonia. When he arrived, he was overweight, showed signs of terrible neglect, and his coat had been butchered by an at home haircut. On top of that, he developed pneumonia and was hospitalized for several days, battling for breath. The recovery was slow, and Coffee endured more than his fair share of poking and prodding at the Vet's office. And while he wasn't always the model patient, over the course of time, Coffee begin to trust and slowly let his guard down, and he has adapted to his new life in Rescue. Now, a year later, Coffee has transformed into a happy, loving boy who has become one of our house favorites. He is a 100% well, in great health, and his eyes have started to sparkle. Now he's ready to join his new home. Coffee is a medium sized dog, weighing 44 pounds. He is a mix of American Eskimo Dog and Collie. His gorgeous gold and white coat has grown back to lush fullness, and he has visited our groomer two times with great results. Coffee has the stance and body shape of the standard American Eskimo Dog, but has some of the Collie coloring and size. His coat is thick and requires regular brushing, and perhaps professional grooming a couple times a year. Coffee would be a great choice for laid back, seasoned Adult Eskie lovers. He is best suited to a calm, quiet home without a lot of hectic comings and goings. Coffee is a big fan of peace and quiet. He bonds beautifully to his chosen people, but then prefers to steer clear of strangers. Coffee needs Adopters willing to put boundaries between him and the world at large, and insist that strangers approach him slowly. Although he is an excellent watchdog, adopters will need to be able to make a correction, or be willing to crate when strangers come into the home. Adopters' family and friends will need to approach him on his terms, and let him get comfortable before they become too touchy-feely. Adopters will need to be comfortable instructing folks how to approach Coffee, so that he feels comfortable and safe when meeting new people. Coffee is not a good choice for a busy family with children, but he could live happily with another canine housemate, if the dog is calm and well behaved. He has not yet been exposed to cats, but a dog savvy feline housemate is not out of the question. Adopters will need to be patient with Coffee, and allow him to warm up at his own pace. He is not likely to give a Disney moment at the adoption meeting. Coffee has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained, although adopters should expect to troubleshoot a few accidents during his transition to a new routine. He has begun to master his basic obedience commands, and takes to training very well. Coffee responds positively to both treat-based and leadership techniques. He is in excellent health and has been neutered. His preoperative blood work was normal and serves as an important baseline going forward. His skin and coat are in A-1 shape, and he has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis.

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Seems as though every couple of weeks, the media reports another awful hoarding situation busted up by the animal control cops. This is the worst kind of situation that rescue folks can face. The dogs that come out of these neglectful environments suffer a myriad of physical and psychological problems. Our gorgeous girl, Leggs, came to us from just such an unfortunate background. Leggs, and her 20 housemates, were confiscated by local animal control authorities, and transported to the ASPCA Rehabilitation facility in New Jersey. Leggs was riddled with parasites and suffered a long battle with lung worms. She ... (Read More)received state of the art veterinary care at the ASPCA facility, where she was diagnosed with Epilepsy, now completely controlled with a daily dose of Phenobarbitol. Once Leggs was completely healthy, she entered the ASPCA behavior clinic, where behavior experts and trainers, began to restore her spirit and faith in humanity. Slowly, she began to recapture her joie de vivre, and enjoy a carefree dog's life. Leggs graduated from the ASPCA program with top honors, and then we were asked to take her into our Rescue and find her forever home. We are completely smitten with this spunky beauty, who lights up a room when she enters. She has a bewitching smile and has a delightfully mischievious twinkle in her eye, that reveals an inner joy once missing. Leggs is a FUN dog, who loves to play, but is behind the learning curve in the social skills that young dogs learn in a healthy environment. In some ways, she reminds us of a wild Mustang, whose spirit refuses to be crushed. She has a rambunctious, high energy that needs to be channelled into exercise and ongoing obedience work. She has already mastered many aspects of the Canine Good Citizen program, and is primed to go the distance with the right person. In a dog world in which most folks seek the 'perfect' pal, who will easily assimilate into a bustling lifestyle, no muss...no fuss, Leggs will undoubtedly be passed over in the adoption stampede toward Dixie puppies. We know that Lovely Leggs will attract that one in a million adopter, whose confidence and indomitable spirit will embrace her, and give her the rich life she deserves. Leggs can be unsure of new people, but warms quickly to tasty treats. She has learned to relax into human touch, and will lovingly bond to her chosen person. Leggs would be the ideal companion for an active single, or couple, who have the patience and passion for helping a rescue dog. As lifelong rescuers, we can attest to the thrill that this kind of connection provides, and the satisfaction that comes with every small measure of progress. Leggs seems to be a mix of Scent Hounds, most likely Beagle and American Fox hound. She is a graceful, medium sized dog, and is at an ideal weight of 30 pounds. The key to a positive connection with Leggs is exciting her scent hound instincts. Leggs comes alive in the brisk country air, where she can indulge her snoot. She would love to join her people on a brisk walk, run or hike, and has lots of stamina to keep up. She also enjoys a leasurely stroll, during which she can take in the scents of nature. Leggs has good house manners and is housetrained. She's not a big fan of her crate, but she tolerates it, if bribed with a treat or interesting toy. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident as Leggs adjusts to her new lifestyle. She enjoys car travel, but would be best restrained by a safety harness to prevent her from back seat driving. Leggs is in excellent health at five years old, and is completely vetted. She is spayed, up to date on routine vaccinations, dewormed, and has tested negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. All medical issues have been treated, and we are offering free post adoption obedience training to local adopters.
