Roxanne - SOCIAL GIRL's Info...
|Breed:||American Pit Bull Terrier/Dalmatian Mix||Color:||White - With Black||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Female|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Roxanne is female, about 60 lbs, 2.5 yrs old, and is an American Pit Bull Terrier, possibly mixed with Dalmatian. Roxanne loves men, women, and children, and is quite social with other dogs, both large and small. Her current foster sister is a Mini Poodle mix and her best friend. We've begun to take her to the dog park and she is doing well. She is full of wiggles when she says hi and can get quite bouncy and goofy at play time. She does a little chewing but is very crate trained, is house broken, and is quite calm when inside. Roxanne has been all right with my cats inside but she shows high prey drive outdoors so we recommend she is not placed with cats.
Roxanne is a moderate energy dog and is a lot happier if she gets to run around every couple of days. She LOVES to play fetch with a stick and play ball. Roxanne would make a good addition to a family with kids, a buddy to a couple, or a sidekick for an attentive single owner. We are currently working with her on basic obedience training and she now knows sit, stay, wait, leave it and will wait until she is called by name to her food.
Roxanne's adoption fee is $250 and includes her spay, heartworm tested negative, basic shots, rabies shot, deworming, flea treatment, microchip, and health certificate. Roxanne is currently in foster in Seatac, just south of Seattle. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application or with questions.

Rescue Group Info...
I started this rescue in April of 2012 with the goal of trying to get people in my community involved in saving dogs and cats. I work with the Police Department in the tiny Eastern Washington city of Connell to pull every dog out of the makeshift pound, provide it with vet care, and find it an adoptive home.
We also take in abandoned pets or pets that have to be re-homed from other towns and communities in the surrounding region.
We have a small group of part-time, unpaid volunteers both in Eastern Washington and in the Puget Sound area that help with transport, fostering, and other responsibilities to make our adoptions possible.
It is my overall goal to provide this area with a lasting no-kill program so no more dogs or cats need to suffer.
Although there is a small holding area managed by the City of Connell Police Department, Red Waggin' Rescue/Connell Pet Rescue has no permanent shelter facility.
Our animals stay in foster homes while they await their new homes, that are found in Eastern Washington and all the way to the Puget Sound area.
Generally, if an approved adopter is interested in another part of Washington State, transport can be arranged and runs roughly every other weekend.
Our process begins with an adoption application. Once this is approved, we have a meet and greet. If that goes well, the adoption begins. An adoption contract is signed, an adoption fee paid, and we let the new family take the pet home for a 7-day approval period.
We also take a new family picture as well. If an adopter decides not to keep the pet during the 7-day approval period, the adoption fee is returned when the adopter returns the pet. After this time period is over, we still take the pet back, but the fee is not returned.
We try to microchip all our pets, so that if they are ever in trouble, and get lost or loose, or end up in the shelter, we can make sure that they will be returned to the adopter or to our rescue. We will always take a pet back if needed.
We try to spend time with each adopter to help them understand how to best introduce a new cat or dog into their home, and what to expect. We.are also very mobile and we actively transport dogs to adoptive families all over Washington State. We attend very few adoption events so if you are interested in one of our pets, please email for an adoption application and we can arrange having a volunteer bring the pet to you once you are approved to adopt.
