Facts about Tony

  • Breed: Rat Terrier Mix

  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less

Hi! My name is Tony! I am a handsome 2 yr old black and white wavy coat Terrier/Cocker Spaniel blend who weighs 12 lbs. I’m a great little guy who is looking for a wonderful mature person (with a quiet home), preferably a lady, to call my own. She can dote on me every day and I can cuddle and give good kisses in return. I love to go for walks and play with toys. My current foster home is on a ranch. I love to go out to the barn and help with chores. I have good manners around the horses, cows and even the pet pig. My foster mom can tell you that I am loyal and very loving. She describes me as a low/medium energy guy who is good in the house, and enjoys being out in the yard. Tony would be a great traveling companion, hiking or camping buddy.

Like most dogs at 3R Rescue, Tony is attending dog school every week. He is learning all his basic commands very quickly because he is eager to please. Tony walks great on a leash and loves to take rides in the car. He also is quite good at retrieving the ball – any ball including golf balls. Please see Tony’s video “Tony the Caddie”.

Tony does not get along with cats (Terrier) and shows fear of small children and large dogs. Tony would prefer a quiet home where he is the only dog or has a companion his size so he can have ample time with his human.

Tony is amazingly smart and has the heart of a Great Dane. He has had a rough go in life so far and certainly deserves a second chance. Won’t you consider opening your heart and home to him? He will show his gratitude and be a great companion for years to come.

He is neutered, micro-chipped, and up to date on all shots and started in basic obedience training. For more information go to, email or phone 707-529-4643.

About 3R Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue dogs from rural and under-sourced shelters that do not have adequate medical support, staff or facilities and few potential adopters coming to the shelter. Euthanasia rates at these shelters are extremely high (80% or higher) Many of our dogs come directly off the euthanasia list.
Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals in need of a second chance. They are provided medical care, quality nutrition and the opportunity to de-stress and socialize in a home environment until they are ready to go to their new family. WE have animal behaviorists who assess each dog and recommend appropriate care and training. Many of our dogs are started in basic obedience training while they are with us.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our dogs ate available by appointment at the 3R facility, foster homes and other locations by appointment. Please see our website calendar for the list of locations where we have adoption events.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an adoption application. Once the application is reviewed and references are checked we schedule a 'meet and greet' with the potential adopter and the dog. We require that all immediate family members and their pets (mainly dogs) are brought to meet the dog. A home inspection is also conducted. We work closely with the new adopter after the adoption to help and advise during the first critical days/weeks in the new home.
