Meet REX! *courtesy post - contact Wendy via email at teddy7782@aol.com for adoption info!

Rex is a very sweet Maltese/Chinese Crested mix with soft cream white hair and big smiles! He is good with other dogs, cats, and children. He loves to sit and cuddle next to you on your lap and at night in bed at your feet. He is very loving and loyal. We adopted him in 2009 when he was 1 years old. He is around 8 years old and very healthy he has never had any health issues. He is up to date on Rabies, but he needs his other vaccines and we are going to get him a dental cleaning.  The issues he needs to work on are his aggression towards some new people, not all. He needs time to warm up! He also does not like having a harness put on him and has high energy which is good but can be high strung. He never had aggression or growling issues or issues with putting on a harness or touching in a certain way, but one time he got off his leash and a neighbor picked him up by his neck to catch him, and another time he was kicked by an ABA therapist when he was just standing near door because the lady did not like dogs. Our vet said he might have to go on medication to calm down to do a professional grooming although he does tolerate baths we just leave a leash on him all the time to help with these issues. He is very intelligent and easily trainable.

About I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

I.C.A.R.E. is an all breed, no kill dog rescue. We rescue dogs at risk of being euthanized from shelters, abandoned, abused, and stray dogs. We also rescue many owner surrendered dogs; which are dogs that can no longer remain in their current homes due to financial or personal issues. I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue is dedicated to reducing the number of dogs that are euthanized in our shelters each and everyday. We focus on rescuing and rehabilitating them in loving foster homes until they are adopted into their permanent homes. We also focus on educating the public regarding specific breeds, rescue, and general information regarding the canine species. We are a 100% volunteer run and supported organization that cannot survive without the help of loving fosters, volunteers, and benefactors.
