Meet Tonks. This pretty girl is such a sweet, gentle soul who was found in West Virginia last year. She was sick, emaciated, full of fleas and overall not in good shape. Her finders took her in, cared for her and brought her back to excellent health. At the time Tonks was found, the family wasn't looking for another dog, but their heart broke for her. Because of her poor condition, she looked old and had pretty low energy. Now that Tonks is the poster child for healthy, it is apparent that she is also looking for an active lifestyle--something the finders are not able to provide for her.

Tonks is about 3 years old. She is a mixed breed girl of unknown origins. We feel like there is some greyhound and perhaps some German shorthaired pointer (or similar breed) in her genes. She is a fantastic combination of energetic and calm. Tonks loves to run and would love a fenced yard where she can do so safely. She would also do great as a running buddy--she would just need a little practice. She walks well on leash and is used to a gentle leader system. When she isn't up for exercise she is a great companion in the home. She is well-behaved and loves to be with her people.

Tonks can be a little shy with new people at first, but once she is comfortable she is a doll. She is very gentle and sweet. Tonks loves to play with other dogs, but also needs slow introductions just like with people. She currently lives with cats and loves them as much as dogs. We recommend older kids for Tonks. She is never ever aggressive, but her tail is like a whip and can bruise a tough adult. We think she might accidentally hurt a young child if she got really excited and really started wagging.

Tonks is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. She was recently treated for Lyme disease which was discovered before she was symptomatic. Tonks is also solidly housebroken. She is trustworthy uncrated and prefers to lay next to her crate rather than inside it.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a rescue/ rhoming service that provides education and assistance for owners in our community to keep pets in their home. When that is not an option or we come across animals in need, we will take them into our foster-based program, work with them, seek all necessary vetting, and find them the perfect home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do various adoption events in the community. If you would like to meet one of our available adoptables, please email us!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to complete the adoption application on our website. Once we have reviewed the applications, we will contact the potential adopters to arrange a meet and greet. This can take several days depending on the popularity of the animal.
