Melanie's Story...
EST DOB: 10/9/11
Undergoing heart worm treatment
Melanie is a ray of sunshine. She has had a rough time but you would never know. She is happy to meet every stranger as her new best friend. She likes other dogs and is very playful. She likes toys and is learning to fetch. She soaks up any kind of attention, and loves a good scratch.

Melanie whom ARF rescued from the Jacksonville Texas area in October, along with her 10 pups and her daugher June and her 6 puppies. Melanie was an awesome momma and still likes to play with her puppies but now she is ready to be treated like a puppy again. She would love another dog or two to hang out with as well but would be fine as an only dog as long as her human was around. She loves to ride in the car and go on walks around the neighborhood. Her foster says she has been one of the easiest foster dogs ever!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Melanie, a Flower Mound Rhodesian Ridgeback/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Flower Mound, or seeking a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Flower Mound.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Flower Mound already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Flower Mound breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rhodesian Ridgeback/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Rhodesian Ridgeback/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Flower Mound paves the way for another one to be saved.
