Story
Sweet little Reba was a street dog. No idea how long she had been on the streets but she just went house to house begging for food until one day a very nice woman got her into the car and brought her to us. Her owners never claimed her so now she is ready for adoption. She is in very good health and sweet as can be. She loves to play with my 3 year old granddaughter so if you have children, she will love that! She is spayed, fully vaccinated, heart worm negative, microchipped and crate trained. Ready for immediate transport. These dogs are very high energy and she loves to do zoomies so a fenced yard is preferred. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATDED IN TENNESSEE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEET OUR PETS PRIOR TO ADOPTION! ADOPTION FEE $700

Story
Moon is a three year old terrier mix with a loving personality and a lot of energy. She's boisterous and playful and will play fetch and tug of war all day. She also likes to cuddle up and snuggle on someone's lap after playing her heart out. She does well with other dogs but would be better suited with dogs that will play with and stand up to her as she's a sneaky toy thief. Moon is also a clever girl who learns tricks quickly and will definitely surprise you. Moon is best suited for a home that has a backyard where she can play and get all of that energy out as she has TONS.

Story
Silver Paws looking for love. Max is a lovely rat terrier mix who came out of a hoarding situation in Texas. His foster reports that he is housetrained, great on a leash and very friendly with other dogs, cats and kids. He is looking for a partner for ambling around the block or hanging out on the sofa. Max really likes to sleep in. He is a velcro pup, ie you will never go to the bathroom alone. Max will need a home with another dog or someone who is around most of the day. Unfortunately, stairs are a no go. But this boy has a ton of love to give his lucky adopters. The adoption fee for this dog is $250 which includes routine vetting and spay/neuter. Petconnect Rescue cannot guarantee the exact breed of any animal in our care. The breed listed is based on any background we may have been provided, and the general appearance of the animal at the time they enter our system.

Story
Macy is located in TEXAS. There are not enough homes for all the unwanted dogs down there, so she is willing to relocate for a good, loving, forever home. Macy looks like a rat terrier. We are guessing she is around 3 years of age and she weighs 15 pounds. As expected, she was a bit leery of the other dogs at first but now she is just as happy and playful as she can be. Macy is very affectionate and loves attention and pets. She likes to sit next to you on the couch and will grumble at the other dogs to keep them away so she can have all the attention. This is a bad habit and should not be encouraged. Macy is crate-trained and well-behaved in the house. She is doing well with housetraining but may need more work. Because Macy is small, she must be protected from rough treatment by children or big dogs that could hurt her. She must also be protected from raptors and other outdoor predators. Macy must be an inside dog and a loved member of the family. To avoid injury, she will need steps to get on and off the couch and other furniture. Macy must be walked on a leash and would like a secure, fenced yard to run and play. Macy is healthy. She is spayed and tattooed, fully vaccinated (DAPPvL2, Bordatella, rabies), and microchipped. She is negative for heartworms and receives monthly heartworm and flea prevention. ALL transport costs are included in the adoption fee with delivery to Hagerstown MD or Quicksburg VA. Macy is currently located in Texas and cannot be transported until after she is adopted. Please send an email to 2manydogstx@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting this little sweet girl.
