Conrad (formerly Rascal)

ADOPT recently received an update from Rascal’s new mom.  It looks like this boy is sure to have a happy Thanksgiving this year! 🙂 

Conrad (Rascal) is absolutely adorable. He has adjusted so well like he was always part of the family. We are so grateful to have been selected as his forever home. He loves Pupaccinos as seen below. He is certainly a cuddle bug, insists on frequent belly rubs when lounging on the couch in the evening and he gives lots of kisses.
Blessings to all of you at A.D.O.P.T. Rescue and all the inmates who participate in the program.

Bruno

ADOPT recently received an update from Bruno’s new family.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 🙂 

Bruno is a dream come true for us. We love him to pieces and we’re pretty sure the feeling is mutual. Thank you again for the opportunity!!

Barkley

ADOPT received an update from Barkey’s new mom.  We think he’s settled in quite nicely in his new home! 😉 

Charlie (formerly Otis)

ADOPT received an update from Charlie’s (formerly Otis) family.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 🙂 

He sure is a member of the family! Charles in Charge! He still has a few leftover quirks but he’s slowly working through them and we are always ready for catering to him. He’s going on vacation to SC next month with us and will be a beach bum for a few days! He’s doing great and we love him to pieces.

Rascal

Rascal

Breed (best guess): Wire Haired Jack Russell Terrier mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birthdate: 9/25/2020
Size: 18 pounds
Good With Kids: unknown
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Rascal needs to be in a home with a patient, loving family. We’re not sure about his past but whatever happened to him has resulted in some anxiety. He needs to learn that his family won’t abandon him and will love him forever. He would probably be best as the only dog in the home. His handler says Rascal is a very sensitive dog that listens well and loves people, particularly older people. He might even make a good therapy dog for a person that is willing to take him to training.

Additional Information: Rascal was found as a stray and brought to us by a good samaritan. He is working on his commands and knows Sit, Stay, Leave It and Come. He is working on the Down command. He is good on a leash and doesn’t seem to be destructive when left out.

Jax

Jax

Breed (best guess): Alaska Border Collie
Breed Information: Border Collies are very intelligent and energetic. They are high drive and require daily exercise beyond a quick walk.
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birth Date: June 1, 2022
Size: currently 23 pounds but he’s still growing. We estimate he’ll be under 50 pounds when full grown
Good With Kids: Yes, older children will be better since he is a herding breed
Good With Cats: Yes but he will chase them (again, he’s a herder)
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: In progress
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Jax requires an active family that will provide him with a fair amount of regular exercise and mental stimulation. We require an experienced dog owner for him, preferably someone familiar with Border Collies or Cattle Dogs. He will greatly benefit from obedience classes. Since he is a puppy and is still working on his house training, we prefer a home where he is not left alone for long periods of time.

Additional Information: Jax was surrendered to us through no fault of his own. His family didn’t have time for him. Since he is a working dog, he has a lot of energy and needs plenty of activity. He has some mild separation anxiety and will bark when left alone. He has experienced a lot of change in the last month and will relax once he is in his forever loving home. He is a smart dog and is learning sit and down commands and how to walk on a leash.

Cooper

Cooper has found his furever home, and it’s safe to say he has settled right in! 


Otis

Otis

Breed (best guess): Shih Tzu/Yorkie Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Birth Date: 6/26/2020
Size: 15 pounds
Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Otis likes to be the center of attention and he loves meeting new people. Every new person he meets means there is a chance for pets, kisses, and a warm lap. Otis came from a home with a fenced in yard where he loved going outside to play. If his new family doesn’t have a fence, we recommend taking Otis to obedience classes where he can learn to walk on a leash.

Additional Information: Otis spent his life in a loving home. He was recently “inherited” from a family member when they passed away. The owner’s current dog did not appreciate Otis or his energy level so he was surrendered to ADOPT. His family was incredibly sorry to have to let him go. Due to Otis’ breed, he will require regular grooming.

Bruno

Bruno

Breed (best guess): Hound/Shepherd Mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Age: About 6 months old
Size: 25 pounds, we estimate that he will be less than 45 pounds full grown
Good With Kids: Yes, but over 10 years old would be best
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Bruno will need a home with patience while he settles in. He is nervous around men but is fine with them once he gets to know them. He would love a yard with tennis balls and another dog to play with.

Additional Information: Bruno loves kids and other dogs. He was tested with cats, chickens, and guinea pigs but chased a rabbit when it ran. Sounds like he will fit in almost anywhere! Bruno is learning how to walk on a leash so continued obedience training is recommended. He is learning some new commands from his handler (sit, stay, down, leave it and come) and is doing really well.

Coco

ADOPT received a Happy Tails update from Coco’s new family!  She is doing great and LOVES to play – her dad says that she would play all day every day if she could, it’s basically either play or sleep!  We’re so happy to see she’s doing so well in her furever home! 🙂
