|Breed:||Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix||Color:||Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With Black||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female|
Cindy is a lovely young (about a year old) female with a very soft gold coat with black points and pretty black toenails. She weighs 40 lbs. She looks very much like a Rhodesian Ridgeback but is smaller than most Ridgebacks and without the signature ridge of hair on her back. Some think she looks like a mini Great Dane! Our best guess is that she is a RR cross. We do not know her history as she came to the local county pound as a stray. She is very friendly and eager for human interaction but has had little training. However, she seems smart and eager to please. As she is currently sheltered in a barn due to her current quarantine status, she quickly learned to befriend the resident horses. She seems eager to play and I guess she will get along with other dogs. She is learning to walk on a leash without excessive pulling and to "sit" and 'down" on command. She loves treats. She is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations. We think Cindy would make a really nice family pet - all she needs is some training and lots of love! Won't you give her the chance she deserves?
Rescue Group Info...
The Bedford Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1994 and dedicated to eliminating the overpopulation of cats and dogs in Bedford County through education, spay/neuter programs, and companion animal adoptions. We are NOT the tax-funded Bedford County shelter on Falling Creek Road, although we do try to help the animals there whenever possible. Our adoptable pets live in volunteer foster homes where they receive the care and attention they deserve while awaiting a permanent home.
Our various programs for Bedford County and City of Bedford residents include::
•A low cost spay/neuter program for area pets
•The construction of a no kill animal shelter, The Vernon D Lybolt Adoption Center, at 829 Ole Turnpike Road in Bedford.
•Find homes for abandoned and homeless animals through our adoption and transport programs.
•Help pet owners with unexpected expenses involving their pets, through our Emergency Fund program.
•Provide humane traps and spay/neuter subsidies for feral cats through our Forgotten Felines program.
•Humane Education program for area Scout troops and schools.
Until we are able to build our No-Kill Shelter, our adoptable pets live in foster homes throughout Bedford County and surrounding areas. If you are interested in meeting a pet, please submit an adoption application or contact our main office.
We also hold monthly adoption events at our Headquarters and the Bedford Tractor Supply. Visit our website or our Facebook page for dates and times. If you would like to be added to our monthly events email list, please send a request to email@example.com.
Have you discovered a pet you wish to adopt? Great!
Now, the first step is to complete an adoption application on our website at http://bhsva.org/adoptions-home.htm. This is not a commitment to adopt. It is simply the first step in the process.
We will review your application for preliminary approval before asking the foster parent to contact you to set up a time to meet the pet. You may also have concerns about how the animal will fit your home environment. When the foster parent contacts you, you will be able to discuss your concerns with someone who has first-hand experience with the pet.
After you meet the animal, you and the foster parent can decide if this is definitely the forever pet for you.
