Frankie's Story...
Frankie's story starts on an abandoned road. He was scavenging for food and water. A sweet lady happened to be driving down this road one day. She saw this thin bug infested sick 4 month old baby wondering around. She stopped her car to help him. He was so scared he ran under her car and hid from her. She spent time with him and got him out and took him to a veterinarian. They washed the bugs off of him. Started feeding him and gave him the age appropriate shots he needed. This sweet lady paid for his boarding for a week. In that time she contacted Hearts of Gold Pit Rescue.
It just so happened we had an opening at a foster home that takes in puppies come up that same week. Of course they said yes to fostering him. Since he has been in his foster home he has learned alot. He has learned to play with other dogs big and small young and old. He is crate trained and house trained. He loves his toys and loves playing with other dogs. He is also friendly with the house cats. Frankie may have big ears and big feet but he is all Pit at heart. He dosent know he looks a little different than the average Pittie. He is a sweet cuddly silly ball of fun. He is friendly with children and adults. He walks well on the leash. He is up for anything as long as he is included. To adopt fill out an application you can find one at www.heartsofgoldpitrescue.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Frankie, a Memphis Rhodesian Ridgeback dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rhodesian Ridgeback for sale in Memphis, or seeking a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog from a breeder in Memphis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Memphis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Memphis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rhodesian Ridgeback breeders who help with Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Memphis paves the way for another one to be saved.
