Dash reached rescue in a round-about way.  He was rescued the first time, as a tiny 8 week old puppy - being sold at a garage sale for 5 bucks. Three little puppies were stuffed in a guinea pig cage and offered up for sale.  Two of the puppies were immediately sold.  An animal lover, and Good Samaritan, couldn't bear to see this little dog being given to any one that had a five dollar bill in his pocket, and although she had 3 dogs at home, she took this one, too.  She still worries about what happened to the other tiny pups.

It didn't appear that the puppies had been socialized very well.  Dash was very shy, but once he warmed up to the family, everything was good.  However, this busy family still had 3 dogs and this little busy Chihuahua seemed to require much more attention than the older ones.  Reluctantly, with tears in their eyes, the family that rescued Dash from an unknown future, has decided that he would be happier in another home, where there is not so many other animals, and more attention is devoted to him. He's a big lover, loves sitting on your lap, and this busy family just doesn't have the time for this love-bug.

Dash is crate trained; in fact. he looks forward to going into his crate at night; it's his man-cave:)  He's neutered, current on his vaccinations, and will be microchipped prior to rehoming.  He's now a friendly, happy dog, but still a bit on the shy side.  He gets along OK with older children, who respect his small size and treat him gently.  Dash is an athletic little guy; can jump and scale a 4' fence if there's something/someone on the other side that grabs his attention.  A fenced yard is imperative.

About Rescued Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescued Paws is a humane, no-kill organization established by a small group of dedicated animal lovers in Longview, Washington. Rescued Paws (RPAWS) does not have a physical location, but consists of a network of foster homes. We are staffed entirely by volunteers. This keeps the operating expenses down; all donations are used for the care and treatment of the animals. Medical issues are addressed and spay/neuter surgeries arranged with local Veterinarians, prior to adoption. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.,and donations to our rescue are tax deductible under the Internal Revenue Service code.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not run an independent shelter; all our animals are in individual foster homes. Each animal biography will have the contact information for that animal.

Our Adoption Process...

Looking for a four-legged friend? We have lively lovable cats and kittens available, in all shapes and colors. We also have several friendly dogs just waiting for homes. All our animals are currently in foster care; they are sleeping on soft beds and receiving lots of TLC. But it's not the same as homes of their own.
All our animals have received their initial vaccinations, treated for fleas, and spayed or neutered.

Our adoption fees for cats and kittens range from $65.00 to $150.00. The adoption fees for dogs are $75.00 to $250.00 depending on the breed and age. Adoption fees on purebred animals and "designer" small breeds vary.
