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 grumbles 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 likes to roll herself up in a blanket when sleeping. Macy is getting chubby after her spay and her new family needs to take her on walks to lose weight. Macy 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 Vancouver WA. 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.

Story
Video: https://www.youtube.com/shorts/FPJo4fqair8 Napoleon is a little dog in a big dog body. He has no problem hanging with the big dogs but is also good with little dogs and cats. He does think he owns all the food but he never attacks, he just growls sometimes. He is not a big barker despite being a little dog. He only barks when there is a reason to. He walks well on the leash and he is mostly potty trained (goes to the door) but will probably need some retraining in a new environment. He is a sweet little boy who is active enough to go on long walks but also small enough to not need a ton of exercise to be happy. He was dumped in a rural neighborhood where he was bound to be eating by coyotes or hit by a car. The house that he ran to for help gave him food and water but they wouldn't even bring him inside to keep him safe so I had to go pick him up in the middle of the night. He is currently still in Oklahoma where he was rescued but he can only be adopted out of state where people treat animals well. He has to be prepaid and picked up directly from transport at one of our transport drop off locations below. If things don't work out for some reason, which rarely ever happens, we will either find a local foster to take him in or he will go back to Oklahoma on our next transport until a new home is found. www.facebook.com/desideratarescue/reviews Transport locations: - Washington State (Kennewick, Lynnwood/Edmonds, Seattle/Tacoma) - Oregon (Portland and Springfield) - Colorado (Ft Lupton) - Idaho (Heyburn and Boise/Meridian) - Utah (Ogden) - Wyoming (Evanston, Rock Springs, Laramie) - Illinois (Vandalia) - Indiana (Spiceland) - Ohio (Columbus) - Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh and Harrisburg) - New York (Buffalo and Albany) - Connecticut (Enfield) Vetting: neutered, heartworm tested (negative), on monthly heartworm prevention, on monthly flea and tick prevention, rabies vaccine, bordetella vaccine, dhpp vaccine x 2, lepto vaccine x 2, microchipped, dewormed. Adoption fee: $550 (includes the $250 cost of transport from Oklahoma) Adoption application: https://form.jotform.com/82677586784176 Desiderata Rescue is Oklahoma Licensed Rescue #95

Story
Xander is loving, and loyal, the very best cuddler and adventure buddy! He loves going on hikes and road trips, and learning new things. We are seeking to rehome him because as a busy family with social young adults and cats his need for management around strangers (and the cats!) puts an unfair stress on all of us. His ideal home would be one that enjoys training: tricks, scent work, cooperative care, etc. and doesn’t have too many strangers coming and going from the house. He bonds deeply and loves unconditionally. He is extremely emotionally attuned and naturally alerts me when I’m becoming anxious. Veterinary care is up to date. Xander has Addison’s Disease which requires life long daily medication, a monthly injection, and twice per year labs. He has reactivity to people and dogs which is manageable due to his size and training. He has snapped and nipped at people with the triggers being guarding his “person” and handling sensitivities. No one has ever been harmed

Story
We rescued Mac about three years ago, he is about 4rs old. We He is a good boy all around but just needs more attention, walks, and fenced in property. He is a hunter and follows his nose. He has been good around our daughter who is 1.5yrs old. He has nipped at a couple kids about 10yrs old, the kids came up behind him and grabbed him. He would do well with other dogs and not be in a home with children. He cannot be around chickens. He responds well to love and toys. He is a snuggler onece he gets to know you. I cannot stress it enough that we will only let him go to a home that is on acreage and that is fenced. When he sees a bunny or squirrel he is gone and does not come back. We will want to put eyes on the living situation if there is someone who wants to adopt him.

Story
Hi there, I'm Riley and I am Rosie's brother. I am a one year old wire haired terrier around 40 lbs. I am a sweet boy who is good with the peoples of all sizes and with other dogs when I get the chance for a proper introduction. I don't have any experience with those cat things, but being a Terrier mix, I might not be the best fit. I can be a little shy at first but I warm up quickly and then you and I will be fast friends. My sister and I were pulled from the streets and so she is a little needy of her "big" brother so if you would love double the fun we would really like to stay together. *All of The Right to Live dogs are fostered locally in San Antonio Texas and will be transported to other states to their new families upon adoption. We believe fostering dogs and not having them decompress in a kennelled environment is more beneficial for the dogs and builds their trust and companionship in a family situation. Adoption fee includes transportation costs, previous/current medical treatment (spay/neuter, etc.) and a health certificate for cross-state travel*
