Bonnie is a very pretty, medium sized girl, about 5 to 7 years young. It is hard to determine a breed, but she looks like a Retriever, Labrador and/or Shepard mix. The shelter described her as followed: “She is rather hesitant to allow anyone to approach her too closely. She shows no signs of aggression; she just tries to keep her distance. Her eyes and facial expression, as well as her demeanor seem to indicate that she is actually a sweet dog, with some very real trust issues and that she is fearful.” Since she was lucky enough to come in a foster home with Friends of Rescue in Huntsville, Al she can show now how sweet she is, giving kisses all day long. She will be very loyal to her humans. She likes to learn and is doing well with basic commands. She is fully house broken, crate trained and can stay alone for several hours. Cats are accepted as part of the family, squirrels and birds not so much. Therefore, she needs a high fenced in backyard to be safe and to run off her energy. Bonnie is doing very well with leash training and would be a wonderful partner for sportive activities. Kids in their teens would be great for her. With continued basic obedience training she will get the structure she needs to become a happy and confident dog.
With her adoption fee you will get the whole package: Bonnie is spayed, micro-chipped, up to date with all vaccines, heart-worm, worms and flea prevention. Does Bonnie look like a good fit for you? Then please fill out an application at www.forrescue.net. That is the fastest way to get more information and get in contact with her foster family. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bonnie is fostered in Huntsville, AL.
Friends of Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2009, consisting of volunteers who are devoted to saving shelter animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Southern shelters have a constant overflow of dogs and cats, little funding, and limited space. Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they have very little time. It is our goal to help save these adoptable animals and find loving individuals/families who will provide committed, FORever homes. We are NOT professional trainers or animal behaviorists; simply volunteers who are trying to save these animals from euthanasia. Each animal in our program is in a foster home and receives all age-appropriate vetting while in our care.

Our Adoption Process...
We have many wonderful dogs looking for homes! Our dogs are mainly fostered in one of our many experienced foster homes. All of our animals receive rabies vaccine, distemper/parvo vaccine, bordatella, microchip, and spay/neuter, as well as being kept current on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. All of our dogs come with complete medical records. Their adoption fee of $450 covers their complete age appropriate vetting, as well as transportation to your area.
Our rescue doesn't have an actual facility in the New England area. Due to this it is not possible to meet them prior to their adoption. Our dogs are brought up to their new owners weekly! Our transport service is certified through the USDA. We have a 14 day no questions asked money back guarantee and the dog can be returned to us if things do not work out. We try hard to make good matches with our animals and their adopters so that everyone has a happy life together! Our foster homes love the animals in their homes and will fully disclose everything about them – some can even Skype or send videos for you to see them in action.
We can provide references from other rescues, previous New England adopters, and our veterinarians if requested.
