If Max had a dating profile, it would say...


Chocolate Long Hair Chihuahua. 2 years old and a tiny 5lbs. High kill shelter survivor after being abandoned by my family because they didn't have enough time for me. Playtime extraordinaire and explorer of the great outdoors by day. Cuddle expert and profoundly good under blanket sleeper by night. I have a sweet spot for frisky, playful pups my size so if you already have another canine partner in crime who loves to play chase, you could be the one. I'm good with gating, crating and even enjoy time in a playpen so I have that part down. I use potty pads and doggy doors but since my first family didn't take the time to train me properly in housebreaking, I will need a patient Mom to give me a refresher course. I'm neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped.


A loving, affectionate, patient Mom with a calm, laid back household who understands I come with a little emotional baggage after all I've been through. Men (and people wearing hats) make me nervous and I'm already shy when I first meet people so a ladies-only home would help me feel safe and secure. If you have a small, playful pup who is already a part of your life and you are home often so we have time for snuggling, we could be a match. Oh, if you have a green thumb, that would be great. No need to be a botanist but I would love to spend time outside with you in the yard, maybe while you garden.

About One More Dog Rescue (formerly RSHT)

About Our Rescue Group...

One More Dog Rescue, formerly Ruff Start Happy Tails, believes that animals deserve our love, compassion, and respect. Our purpose is to rescue dogs and to provide care for orphaned, stray, and abused dogs. Through rehabilitation, socialization, and adoption, we strive to provide a humane service to all dogs that come into our rescue. Additionally, we provide awareness about the prevention of animal abuse and neglect as well as spay/neuter programs and their important effect on the dog overpopulation crisis.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a Connecticut-based 501c3 dog rescue that will adopt to approved applicants in the surrounding areas.
We do not have a facility - All of our rescue dogs are in loving foster homes.

Our Adoption Process...

One More Dog Rescue (OMD), formerly Ruff Start Happy Tails, requires all potential adopters to fill out an adoption application and agree to a home visit prior to any adoption. Once the application is approved, a meet and greet will be scheduled between the potential adopter (s) and the dog. If the dog is adopted through One More Dog, an adoption contract must be signed, and we ask that a donation in the amount of $350.00 be made at the time of adoption to help our rescue cover a portion of the costs we incur through pull fees, vetting, and training.
