Angels Among Us Animal Rescue announces a new Angel:

Meet Spot!   

Spot is a male Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix who is approximately 10 years old and weighs in at 20 lbs. Spot has been in rescue for more than eight years.  When we got him he was found running loose in a rural area of TN.  He was found by a man and his son who brought him to the rescue.  He went to adoption events for a while, but back when he was 2-3 years old he was so hyper that the events were a challenge for him. Also someone in his past had hit him with something resembling a broom...because brooms or anything with a handle puts him over the edge.  We quit taking him to events but have had little interest over the years from an appropriate home.  Now, after all these years Spot has calmed down and is really an awesome dog.  He is great on a leash, but he still will run if he gets away from you.  He will come back after he visits every smell he can find!  He is very treat driven.  Spot would be an awesome companion for a mature home where toddlers or small children are not pulling on him or hitting him with something.  He still goes nuts if you come close to him with a broom.  He would also be great somewhere with fenced land because he loves to run.   Spot gets along with other dogs, but we have not tested him with cats.  Spot is heart worm negative, current on vaccinations, neutered and micro chipped.

Spot is currently in TN but will be transported to New England for adoption.  AAUAR is courtesy listing Spot for Guardian Angels Pet Rescue (GAPR) of Memphis, TN.  The adoption donation is $300 which includes a health certificate, and transport north .

About Angels Among Us Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Angels Among Us Animal Rescue - HTCASA is a 501c3 group and was founded in July 2011. We are a group of women and men who love animals and rescue animals from high kill shelters. These animals are surrendered by their families or picked up as stray animals. We rescue dogs and give them the second chance they deserve. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, dewormed, heartworm tested and treated if they are positive. We work very hard trying to find these babies their "furever" homes that they deserve.
