Rooney is a two year old Rhodesian mix. He is good with other dogs and children, although he is very skittish and will need a family that will be patient with him as he’s getting adjusted. I am looking for a new home for him because I work full time and don’t think it’s fair for him to be kenneled 8+ hours a day. He is a sweet boy who loves to be cuddled, and deserves a family who can give him more attention.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rooney, a Houston Rhodesian Ridgeback dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rhodesian Ridgeback for sale in Houston, or seeking a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 breeders who help with Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
