Tess is looking for a place she can finally call her own - FOREVER. Found as a stray, she then went into a shelter where she waited for over a year! She was rescued by DITR and is now in search of her perfect family.
Tessa is a 3.5 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who is a true sweetheart. She loves to give kisses, go for walks, and relax on the couch! But -she also loves to play ball and go for car rides where she can feel the wind in her fur...sometimes she even tries to bite the air she is so happy to be out & about! She loves to give kisses and get good cuddles in return!
Tess gets along well with other dogs her size, but cats are a little too much for her to handle, so we would recommend a home without small animals at this time.
Tessa does well with other dogs. Tessa would really enjoy bonding with her new family through basic obedience classes. If you're looking for a dog with more love to give that you could imagine, then Tessa is the dog for you!
The adoption fee for Tess is $250.00. She will come to you fully vetted, spayed, and microchipped.
