Meet Kreacher, a ridiculously cute and confident pittie trapped in a Basset hound body. Kreacher's favorite activities include chasing around his long-legged canine foster brother, playing with toys (as in ALL the toys!), and, as his foster mom puts it, "singing the song of my Basset brethren". Kreacher also enjoys a good walk and shows signs of having nice leash manners with a little training. At 10 months old, Kreacher stilll displays a lot of puppy behaviors, some hilarious, and some that his new forever family will need to work on. Kreacher can be clingy with his people, and will need to learn not to try to dominate every dog he meets. He pairs well with submissive, fun-loving dogs but may be too much for more alpha-type dogs. Kreacher still jumps up on people in his enthusiasm to say hello, and he is a strong and squat 35 pounds, so he would probably not be the best fit for a household with smaller children. Kreacher is going to be a great match for someone who wants a spunky dog with a twinkle in his eye. Kreacher will be a fun dog to train, and his goofy looks paired with his silly antics will keep a smile on the face of all of his forever humans. If you would like to meet Kreacher, please fill out an adoption application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.http://therescueddog.org/2015/dog-adoption-application/
The founders of The Rescued Dog forged our bond during our volunteer work together at a local dog rescue. We recognized in each other a mutual respect for our human friends and the dogs we were helping to rescue. When the time came to start our own rescue, our collective mission was clear: save at-risk dogs from high-kill shelters and place them in loving, forever homes for the benefit of the dogs and humans alike. We believe the best way to end pet overpopulation and animal cruelty is a unified front with local shelters, other rescue groups and the community. While The Rescued Dog is currently a foster-based rescue, our long-term goal is to have a kennel and training facility, which will enable us to increase our number of rescues and take time to train and, if needed, rehabilitate dogs in need. The founders of The Rescued Dog are committed to saving the right dogs for the right people, and offering support and education to ensure a successful forever situation for both our dogs and the humans who adopt them. Thank you for your support!
