My story

Name: Tessa
Gender: Female
Age: 5 years old
Size: 50 lbs
Breed: Hound mix

Energy Level: Medium
Dog Friendly: Yes, and can have other dogs in the home or can be an only dog, but we think she would really love a sibling!
Cat Friendly: No
Kid Friendly: Yes (she is a big fan!)
Apartment Friendly: TBD but unlikely
Physical Fence Requirement: Physical fence is required (see below)
Crate Trained: Yes but not needed

Ideal Home/Adopter: Tessa is looking for a home where she can get the perfect mix of playtime and cuddle time.  Tessa is a social dog, so kids or other dogs in the home would definitely be a plus. Losing an eye hasn't slowed her down; instead, it seems to have amplified her other abilities, like climbing fences. For this reason, a tall smooth surface fence (i.e. fiberglass) is needed to keep our one-eyed beauty safe.

Likes: Tessa's heart belongs to cuddles, playtime with her doggy friends, and exploring her surroundings. She finds joy in romping around the yard and snuggling up with the kids, bringing a sense of warmth and happiness to every moment.

Dislikes: Cats are not Tessa's cup of tea, cat-free space would guarantee her comfort and contentment.

Tessa's spirit is as bright as her single eye, illuminating every room she enters. Her love knows no bounds, and her loyalty is unwavering. Tessa is a well-adjusted pup so if you're seeking a devoted companion who will fill your days with laughter, love, and endless tail wags, she is ready to meet you!

More about this rescue

RESCUEDohio was founded on August 1, 2015 by a group of dedicated animal lovers in the central Ohio area. The founders came from various different vocational backgrounds, but all have one thing in common: the passion to save dogs. Before starting RESCUEDohio, they were previously involved in different aspects of rescue, including fostering, fundraising, coordinating and training. The mission of this group is to help find homes for unwanted and abandoned dogs and to advocate for the rights of all animals everywhere.
