Well, hello there! Thank you for taking a look at my profile!

If you are looking for an active, compact, super friendly and loving dog, then you've come to the right place!

My name is Dutchess and I am about 3-4 years old and 35 lbs. My foster mom says that I give the best kisses, I just need to contain how excited I get because I love people SO SO much! I am a muscular and stocky mauve colored staffordshire mix, but I'm rather on the small side. I am currently in foster care and loving it. I am completely crate trained and I have not had one accident in the house. I have been around dogs, cats and children and I love them all. My heart is as big as my smile and I just can't stop smiling! The humans that had owned me before over-bred me for a long time, so I am very grateful that my breeding days are over. I can now enjoy being cared for instead. I could be ok as an apartment dog if I had a few walks or runs throughout the day. I would REALLY like to have a fenced yard or an enclosed area for exercise because I really do like to run, but I mostly want to be with you! So, even though I like to get in a good "zoomie"; or two around the yard after doing my business, I want to come right back inside and be a part of whatever your doing.

If you are looking for a super friendly, all around fun girl with a great temperament, then look no further! Apply for me today so we can meet!

I am spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, kept on intestinal parasite and heartworm preventative, and microchipped, all of which is covered under my adoption fee of $85.00.

Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees cover all vetting for the animals in our care, including vaccinations, Heart-worm test, Heart-worm treatment if needed, Feline Leukemia test, spay/neuter and may vary, depending on species.

Fosters and Adopters will be required to complete an application with personal and Veterinary references. A home visit is also required.
RESCUES, please contact us regarding pull information or pull fee, if any, depending on vetting already provided by RARE.
