Turbo is an approximately 9 months old Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix. Turbo's name describes him perfectly. Everything he does is at lightning speed. Every once in a while, he takes a break to snuggle with his human friends. Even though he is just a little pup, he is crate trained, and nearly potty trained. He is working very hard on "sit" and "stay", even though that is counter-intuitive to his "fast and furious" lifestyle. He loves other dogs, and is very good at sharing his toys. Sharing treats and food is a little trickier, as he is quick enough to take a treat right out of his friend's mouth if they aren't paying attention. He is learning that that isn't the best way to make friends.Turbo is a sweet boy who is eager to please. He takes instruction well and knows when he has been naughty without much more than a stern "No". His favorite time of the day is when the humans get home and it is time to play. His Kong toy and his squeaky toys are his favorite. He can't wait to find a home that's full of attention and toys for him to join.

Mission Statement: Forever true to The Underdog, Rural Dog Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of dogs in shelters who are often overlooked for adoption or rescue. We save the dogs who are at most risk of being euthanized: the hounds, the black dogs, the seniors, the sick and the broken. We make a commitment to reserve a minimum of 50% of the dogs we save to The Underdog. Root For The Underdog!
Rural Dog Rescue's home base is in Washington, DC. We support several high kill shelters that euthanize in 72 hours and whose kill rate is 70% or higher in rural areas of Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina. Rural Dog Rescue also helps dogs in need in Washington, DC and Maryland.
We are 100% volunteer and foster based and no salaries are paid. 100% of your donation and adoption fee goes to helping the dogs and cats of Rural Dog Rescue.
Although we try to be as accurate as possible, Rural Dog Rescue cannot guarantee the breed or full-grown adult size of any of the dogs or puppies in its care. Because many of these dogs were found as strays or are the result of irresponsible, unplanned breeding, we do not know the dog's exact background and can only list breed and size by our best educated guess. If exact breed and size are important to you, please consider adopting a dog from a specific breed rescue - We want our dogs to be adopted by people who will love and care for them forever for who they are - no matter what breed and size they turn out to be! All dogs go to their new homes spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots, wormed (although a 2nd worming may be required), started on heart worm and flea and tick preventative and sometimes microchipped.
