Precious was surrendered May 20, 2007.  I was told she had been seen getting beat by her owners, and I was also told she had been shot at by someone.  The bullet grazed the back of her shoulder blades.  The hair did grow back in where I was told she had been shot.

She is a climber, is leash trained, and crate trained, but I have to let her hike her leg on something outside before bringing her in to a crate, or she will do it inside the store room where the crates are.  Yes, I said hike, just like a male dog.  I don't know why.  She is paired up with Marshall, and he has the same problem, so maybe it's from being with him.  She didn't use to be like that until I paired her up with Marshall, so she could be trained again.  She use to be a yard dog that was crated at night and when I ran errands, but kept climbing over our four foot perimeter fence and bothering the neighbor, so she had to go in a six foot dog pen she couldn't get out of.  I still have to crate her when I run errands, or she starts working on the chain link fence or digging to get out, so she is still crated when I leave, but not at night.  She has become extremely sweet and more social now since she has been here.  She use to be scared of most movements we made, but is now comfortable.  I don't even need a leash with her.  On occasion I will have her out of her dog pen when the other yard dogs are crated, and she will follow me wherever I go, and comes quickly anytime I call her.  If I sit down, she is in my lap wanting to be pet, and will even roll over for a belly rub.  She would make a great personal pet for someone, and is good around children.

About Tonya Griffith's Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.

Come Meet Our Pets...

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.
