Story
George came into us from another rescue. One of their advocates was able to rescue him on the street and take care of all of the medical to get him healthy. But they found that he was extremely fearful and they did not have the proper situation for him to try to work through his fear. He came to our rescue in the middle of May 2023. He is terrified of being touched. We are not sure if it was caused by abuse or if he's never experienced human touch. After working with him it's very clear that he would love to be loved he is just unsure how to proceed. He will need an adult who is patience and understanding with him but also confident enough to give him direction so that he can feel supported while working through his fears. A home with no children is recommended and he does really well with small confident and kind dogs. He is currently in a play group with Guinevere, teddy, and mango

Story
Meet Peanut, a feisty little seven-year-old female Dachshund/Cattle Dog mix. She weighs 29 lbs, is fully house-trained, knows many commands, loves to play fetch and tug of war, and is as sweet as can be once she warms up to you. Peanut has had a hard life and is a little fearful at first. She comes out of her shell if you are patient with her, and she is a bright and sweet little sidekick. She needs proper introductions to both dogs and cats, but Peanut would prefer to be the only pet in the home. Meeting new people will also be an adjustment for her, and it will take her a bit to warm up. A single person who can be patient with her or a couple with time to spend with her would be just what she needs to ensure she feels comfortable. Due to her slowness in trusting new situations, she would not be an ideal dog for a family with kids. However, sweet Peanut is worth the effort, and she will make an excellent companion for someone looking for a new best buddy. Contact Leann at L.robbins73@gmail.com or call 760-978-3873.

Story
Vonia is a Doxie/Chihuahua pup who is five months old. She is up to date on vaccinations and will be spayed in the first part of November. Housetraining is in progress, and she is an adorable, sweet pup. All ARRF adoptees will have up-to-date shots, be microchipped, and will have been spayed/neutered when they become adoptable. Puppies should be good with gentle children, dogs, and cats. All puppies will need to be housetrained. Puppies need attention, so prospective adopters should have someone either at home during the day or be able to make frequent visits during the day. ARRF strongly encourages puppy adopters to enroll in positive reinforcement classes as early as possible. It will make a tremendous difference in your mutual appreciation and enjoyment of each other. To meet Vonia, email her foster, Jan, at crazy4mutts@outlook.com.
