Meet little Cole!
His foster mom says he looks like Toto from the Wizard of Oz with a poodle tail. He was named Cole because his hair is black and shiny like coal.
Cole is an 11.8 lbs. male yorkipoo who is approximately 1 year old. Poor Cole was a stray who was brought to a high kill shelter in TN before he was rescued. Its possible he may have been an only dog in his previous home or was the alpha as he does like to rule the roost.
Cole plays well with the 4 other dogs in his foster home and he loves running, chasing other dogs in playtime and fetching a ball. He also enjoys frisbee and playing with squeaky toys. He walks well on a leash and likes riding in the car.
He is crate trained and doesn't mind staying in his crate while his foster parents are away from home and he sleeps all night in his crate. He has no food aggression and he is almost housebroken. He's gone several days without accidents and is fine if watched closely and kept on strict schedule.
One of his cutest features is his pointy ears. One stands straight up while the other ear hangs down. He knows how to sit, and comes to you when you call his name and loves to be brushed. He rarely barks. He loves to cuddle and be praised. His coat is soft like a kitten and he has big brown eyes which totally melt your heart.
Please consider giving Cole the forever home he so deserves.
Cole is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative and up to date on all of his vaccines. He is ready for his forever home!

UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE LOCATED OUTSIDE OF RHODE ISLAND BOARDED EITHER PRIVATE FOSTER HOMES OR TRAINING FACILITIES. If a dog is listed as "local", he /she is at one of our foster homes in New England.
We are often asked, "Why would you charge 'so much' for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support ALL rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in discounted vet care, and many people will want to adopt it; an older dog with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt him/her. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others.
