Meet adorable Ruthie, who came to TRD from Tijuana. Ruthie is a beautiful doxie-spaniel mix who enjoys snuggling with her people. Ruthie lives with a dog and a cat in her foster home and does well with both. Ruthie does need slow introductions with new dogs, and seems to prefer dogs closer to her own size, in the 10 to 15 pound range. Ruthie can also be shy around new people, and would prefer a calm household where she can ease into her friendships with new people and new animals. Once Ruthie attaches to people, she is extremely loving and sweet. She does sometimes guard her people and will need a family who understands this behavior and will work on it with her. Her foster mom has already set the ground work for this and Ruthie's adoption includes a complimentary session with our trainer to make sure Ruthie gets off on the right foot in her new forever home. Ruthie is 2 and a half years old as of March 2017 and weighs in around 15 pounds. If you would like to meet Ruthie, 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/

About The Rescued Dog

About Our Rescue Group...

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!
