Story
Remember little Squirt? He found himself on the naughty list for poor behavior. He thought if he would bite, spit and spin the shelter would open the door and set him free. That turned out to be a bad plan One of our experienced dog fosters immediately drove to the shelter and brought him home! She named him Benji to start his new life. Benji spent some time pouting, but finally caved when he realized life was better on a lap. Benji is good with other dogs, has worked on his social skills with strangers, has learned to walk on a leash, is house broken, plays with toys and alerts to strangers!Benji is ready for his forever home with a loving family who will be understanding of his tarnished past.He is 12 pounds and approximately 4 yrs old.You can apply to meet Beni at ricopetrecovery.org! Adoption fee is $250

Story
This is Flick! He is as friendly as he is fluffy. If his adorable smiley face isn't enough to win you over, his sunny attitude and goofy antics will surely capture your heart. He will play with and treasure just about any toy, and always checks on his humans to make sure no laps are left un-sat on! Nothing can keep this spunky pup away from his favorite people. Though he can chase other dogs around for hours, he is always very well-behaved on walks. He never tugs at the leash, and often stops to smell the flowers. Flick will immediately drop whatever he's doing to play fetch with you, but don't expect him to bring anything back! Flick has a big personality to accompany his big heart, and he needs people who are as fun-loving and spirited as he is. Much like his attitude, he is quite bright. He's quick to catch onto new commands and also loves toys that pose a challenge, such as kongs or puzzle feeders. He learns a lot from the other dogs in his life. His energetic spirit may require some extra energy, but this dog is a goofball with a heart of gold, who is just as loving as he is lovable. Apply to adopt him today! Adoption fee is $250.  All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, microchipped and if over 6 months of age, heartworm tested and on heartworm preventative in their foster home. We require an approved application to meet any of our dogs. We do not have a shelter location and will not arrange a meeting without an approved application. We strive to make sure the bios provided for our dogs are complete and accurate; we do understand that mistakes happen, however, so if you absolutely cannot find the answer to your question in the dog's bio, you can contact us for more information. We require a home visit for each dog we adopt out, so we adopt within a 2 hour radius of Dayton, OH. If you are outside of this radius, we encourage you to contact your local rescue or shelter.   April 16, 2024, 1:23 pm

I was found tied to the rescue's fence with my friend Kali.

Let me tell you about myself, I am a 1 yr old Basenji/shepherd mix with a BIG heart and a wonderful personality. I am active and happy and great with other dogs. I want to have a great big adventure with my future family: soaring through life like a bird, being the best & brightest, and so much more! I love kids and everyone else, so adopt me!! I am a great fun family dog.... maybe yours?? If you're looking for a super awesome pup please consider me! Adopt, don't shop! MY LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)
