Rita's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Rita's Story...
Rita a 2 ½ year old spayed Rhodesian Ridgeback mix pup, needs to find a new home where she will be welcome to live as part of a family. After living with her original family all of her life, Rita finds herself the victim of a mother that has developed the AlzheimerÂ’s disease and must move into a long term facility. Much care has been given to Rita over the years as she is current with her shots, wormed, micro chipped, heartworm negative and on heartworm prevention. Rita is house trained, crate trained, walks great on a leash and doesnÂ’t mind riding in the car. In addition, she also knows some of her basic commands. Rita gets along with all people (big and small) and has lived in a home with another dog. Cats are not known at this time. If you would like to give this wonderful girl another chance at having a loving home and family, while receiving all the love and affection any dog can give, please call 469-698-8898. A re-homing fee is being asked to help other pups like Rita that are in need.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rita, a Lavon 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 Lavon, or seeking a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog from a breeder in Lavon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lavon 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 Lavon 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 Lavon paves the way for another one to be saved.
