7 yr Terrier X Brindle female
Rush is about 30 pounds. She is very sweet, but rather independant. She is built like a terrier...very stocky, but her legs are a bit short so we are guessing that there could be some Doxie in her family tree, or maybe some cattle dog.
She can be protective & will bark at strangers. She warms up to people fairly quickly and really loves to be cuddled.
Rush was adopted from us in 2007 & just returned. They moved into a smaller house with a small yard, and Rush had trouble adjusting to the close proximity of the neighbors.. she though they were intruding & refused to stop barking at them.
She most likely would prefer a more isolated yard.. maybe block or wood fences, but then again, with a new family she might learn the new rules & not bark at the neighbors.
She has definately mellowed out & now at 7 years is not as active and excitable. she has been living with children for the past 5 years & is very good with them & all their friends.
We will get some updated pictures soon... these pictures are from when we first had her... FIVE years ago!
She is a gorgeous dog with such a beautiful coat! If you are interested in adding a wonderful companion to your family, please email us about Rush!
This great dog is all ready for a new home! The adoption donation of $200.00 pays for this dog's medical care & also contributes to the medical care needed by other dog's that come into our rescue. (some dogs need hundreds of dollars worth of care to make them adoptable) Why purchase a dog for hundreds of dollars (that still needs vaccinations & neutering & microchip) when you can get this darling dog that already has everything and help other dogs at the same time??? Every life is precious! Thank you for your support.
Call us at 805 674-1236 to make an appointment to see our fosters.. 9:00am - 6:00 pm California time please!
Rescue Group Info...
The Short N Sweet Ranch, altho primarily a horse ranch, has opened its acres to homeless dogs that are looking for that perfect forever home.
We are a member of the Rescue Alliance of Hairless & Other Breeds Which is a group of dedicated rescuers that foster animals from shelters and occasionally for people who need to place their animal into rescue.
Our potential homes are screened & you must be willing to answer questions about your home & life so we can make a perfect match.
All homes must be willing to come out to meet their new dog...I won't ship & hope it works out.
I also require that all adopters have spayed or neutered ALL their current dogs and cats.
If you see a dog here that you like, please email me.
Appointments are necessary to meet our dogs. Please email me at Debby@shortnsweetdogrescue.org
You can also visit our rescue website,
We will require that you fill out an adoption applications & list references. An adopton contract will also be required at the time a match is made.
Adoption fees to vary slightly, but will be around $200.00 as this is usually the minimum that we have had to invest in each dog to ensure his/her health & to spay, neuter, and vaccinate.
emailing us is the fastest way to get a response. If you are serious about adopting a particular dog, tell us something about yourself in your first email, it will greatly speed up the process!
