Facts about Rex

Ruh Roh, Scoopy Doo, our grand, supercharged Rex, is a sight to behold. He is a spectacular mix of Great Dane and Boxer, with a comedic glint in his dreamy hazel eyes. Three year old Rex just came to us from a local Animal Shelter, where his owners dumped him with little explanation. Shelter staff found Rex to be a real sweetheart, in need of a dog savvy owner, who can provide the attention and exercise he needs.

Rex is a large, tall dog, although he only weighs 65 pounds. His Great Dane DNA provides a lean, leggy physique, and large head, while the Boxer input broadens the forehead and chest. Although Rex does not look overly muscular, he is a strong, powerful dog, and he requires some physical strength to handle. We have worked on his leash handling, and he responds well to basic correction, and has become easy to walk.

Rex would be a great fit for an active family with older kids, 10 and up, who are all on the same page about meeting his training and exercise needs. Also, he would be a superstar in the active adult home, and would be a wonderful outdoors companion, whether it be walking, hiking, running, camping, etc. He is an energetic boy, who requires sufficient exercise in order to maintain his equilibrium.

Rex loves to be the center of attention, and he's not going to be happy if he is ignored or relegated to a fenced-in backyard, without any action. We would like to see him continue up the path to Canine Good Citizenship, so that Rex can be in the thick of things, enjoying activities with his family. He could easily join a pack with another well-trained dog. We have not had him around cats, but we suspect that he would chase them beyond their comfort level. As a large boisterous youngster, we feel that Rex is just too much dog to interact safely with toddlers.

Rex is progressing nicely with his obedience training. He has grasped all of the basic commands, and responds to both Positive Reinforcement and Leadership techniques. As a mix of large powerful breeds, Rex needs adopters to continue with his obedience work, and help him move forward toward Canine Good Citizenship certification.

Rex is in excellent health and is neutered. He has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect the occasional accident as he transitions to a new home. Rex is vaccinated for rabies, parvo, adrenovirus, distemper, coronavirus, leptospirosis. He has been dewormed, and has tested negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been an appropriate heartworm and flea/tick prevention medications.

About Eskies Online Multi-Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Eskies Online is a 501(c)(3) Multibreed rescue group that serves unwanted American Eskimos and other dogs in need and finds qualified, permanent, adoptive homes for them. In the foster home environment, we are able to evaluate the dog's temperament and behavior patterns away from the stress of shelter life. Eskies Online is funded entirely through adoption fees, donations and the generosity our volunteers.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption meetings are arranged by appointment with approved applicants.

Our Adoption Process...

When we receive your completed application we will check your references, including your veterinarian, and then call you to discuss your situation and requirements.. If you are approved for adoption, we can then discuss with you which of the dogs might fit best into your life. We will either arrange for you to visit the dog in its foster home, by appointment, or transport the dog to your home.

To help cover the veterinary expenses of our foster Eskies and to support our rescue effort, Eskies Online will charge you an adoption fee of $350.00. We do not sell dogs. We charge a flat fee--whether the Eskie is a puppy or an older dog; whether it came to us with minimal veterinary needs or requiring major medical care; whether the Eskie makes a short or a long stay in our foster system.
