How much do you love this perfect family dog? We love him lots! Meet Ricki, he holds the title as Family Dog Extraordinaire within the rescue, because he is exactly that. Ricki came to us when a small rescue closed their doors. He was a shy, unsocialized 6 month old pup who had no idea what to make of the big world outside of the rescue fence. His foster family have gone above and beyond to show Ricki all the neat things about the world at large, and have guided him through his insecurities with a gentle hand. Fast forward a couple of months, and the shining star that is Ricki is a testament to his foster mom's love, kindness and hard work. Today Ricki is a well-rounded young dog who has learned so much in such a short period of time. He's crate and house trained, gets along well with others, and is trying really hard not to jump up on new friends to say hello. He has a special love for children, and does his best to be a careful playmate with the wee ones. Ricki walks nicely on a leash, he still has some hesitation when he's in a new situation, but he recovers quickly with gentle guidance. Ricki has been through so much in his short life, and he's still so willing to believe in people. Are you the one to continue to show Ricki just how awesome life really is? If so, email sotb.adoptions@gmail.com to come meet our rock star in the making!



Our adoption fee is $195. This covers spay/neuter, microchip, microchip registration, all age appropriate vaccines, and any needed vet care.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Approval Process for South of the Bully

• An Adoption Application must be completed and approved. We call and check vet references to make sure any current pets are up to date with vaccinations and check length of time under vet care. We review all their current pets and ask questions about their temperament to make sure the dog they want to adopt would be a good fit.

• If a dog has been chosen, a meet and greet is arranged if requested AFTER the application is approved. If they have other pets, we also like them to meet at this time, if possible.

• The final step is a home visit. If the home visit is approved the potential adopters can begin their 14 day trial adoption period. Our adoption fee is $195 which includes spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations and microchip. If for some reason the dog isn’t a fit in their home we refund $95 of the adoption fee within the 14 day trial period. This is all listed in our Adoption Contract.

• We offer training support and resources for the lifetime of the dog once adopted. Our contract states that if for any reason they cannot continue to provide care for one of our dogs that it be returned to our rescue.
