My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

He just wants to be with his humans, is a good companion, and is quirky and stubborn but can make you laugh because he is so weird. He loves all food and car rides. Would be good with a senior and someone who likes to cook.' Also, Buddy Lou “brings his personality to the table!” - Buddy Lou's Foster Mom. Now, how can you say no to that!?

Buddy Lou is a 6.5-yr-old Pug/Boston Terrier who loves his people, is crate trained, and knows place. He typically looks to his people for direction and knows to wait. Super happy, 29-pound Buddy always has a smile. Buddy also never met a snack he didn't like. To maintain his svelte physique, which is important to keep his back healthy, he eats a high fiber diet of raw veggies and weight maintenance dry food. Don't let that description fool you...he loves them! He also takes supplements for his joints and back. Buddy Lou just really wants a forever home with someone who will take good care of him and keep him as happy, healthy, and loving as he is right now. He’d do best in a home with older children (teens) and would thrive as an only dog. Want to meet this little guy? Fill out an application today!May 19, 2024, 1:41 pm

Their adoption process


Submit Application

To see all of our pups up for adoption, go here:



Once you see a dog you are interested in, fill out an application here:


Meet the Pet

Someone will call or email you for a phone interview within 24-48 hours, once you have submitted the application.


Home Check

We will schedule the home check once you have been approved. This may be done virtually.

Additional adoption info

All of our animals come fully vaccinated and spayed or neutered (if old enough), and microchipped. Puppies and kittens will be spayed/neutered and have all shots when they are old enough. There is an Adoption application, a quick phone interview to make sure it is a good fit, a meet and greet with the dog, then a home check, and an adoption contract. We ask for a $400 donation for adult dogs, and $500 for puppies at the time of adoption so that we can save other dogs from the shelter. The first step is to fill out an app here:

More about this rescue

Dogs are man's best friend, but it is not always the other way around. The Little Red Dog was founded in memory of a little red American Pit Bull Terrier who did not make it. If you are familiar with the Michael Vick dog fighting case chronicled in The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption. The Little Red Dog was brutally beaten to death by Vick and his cronies because she didn't want to fight.

The Little Red Dog rescues dogs; red, blue, tan, white, brown, black and all colors in between. We do not discriminate against ANY breed; that's because we are a real rescue, and we will help as many animals as we can. Our primary goal is to get them into loving homes. Our hope that some day all of them make it, but most of all, we will never forget the Little Red Dog and many others who did not.
