Hi all! Kricket here!

I am about 2-1/2 years old now and have been in foster care for over a year and a half now! I am a special needs girl. See I was born with a congenital defect in my front legs which make me walk a little wonky, but it doesn't slow me down one bit! I love to chase balls (usually bring them back too)!!

The doctors say I don't need surgery just yet but need to watch my figure to keep my weight down. I also take daily supplements to keep those joints moving smoothly and since I seem to be prone to Urinary tract infections I take cranberry supplements 3 days a week and have been UTI free for over a year!

I would probably do best as an only pet as sometimes I don't play nice when I get excited. My foster family is working with me on this and have made much progress, but sometimes the world just gets to be too stimulating for me. New situations and people make me nervous so if you want to get to know me, it may take some time for me to get to know you enough to trust you. I do have to live with some strict rules, I need a family willing to keep up with my training so I can keep getting better.

I would probably do best with older children (13+) as younger ones get me too excited.

Please do not let all this deter you from meeting me. I need a patient family that is willing to take the time to get to know me and give me a chance to get to know them. I LOVE to cuddle up on the couch with my people.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Meet-and-greets are available by appointment only. Upcoming adoption events will be posted as they are scheduled.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting an animal from Ruff House Animal Rescue, please fill out a Pre-Adoption Application at www.rhar.org. Once the application is reviewed, a representative will contact you to set up a home-check and meet-and-greet with the animal; if you have existing pets in the home, multiple meet-and-greets may be required to determine if the potential animal is a good fit. If everything goes well with the application and meet-and-greet, you will have the option to start a two-week (no-fault) trial adoption. An Adoption Contract will be filled out and adopters will be provided with all necessary paperwork for their new pet.
