Adoptable Dogs

If you have a pet that you would like to have adopted, please send us the following information. Pet's name, sex, breed, Age (approximate birth date), description, whether spayed or neutered, whether up-to-date on inoculations, housebroken, general personality, how well the animal gets along with other animals and children, whether or not the animal has been de clawed, and whether or not the animal is an indoor pet or outdoor pet, and how to reach you. Send this information along with any other information, as well as photos to mewoof@bellsouth.net. 

I always prefer to adopt an older dog simply because they are calmer, are over their chewy tendencies, and someone else has usually house trained them for you!!! Carol West - RCHS Webmaster

Dogs
Angie Angie Angie

Angie is a female,  Boxer mix with Brindle color; born on April 10, 2011.  Angie is powerful little dog that loves toys and stuffed animals and a comfy bed. She loves to have her belly rubbed. As a young dog she was not able to be around other dogs so she hasn't learned her place in the pack and for that reason, would be best in a single dog house or one with a larger dog she can't dominate. She definitely should not be around small children as she would knock them down. She chases cats - so cats are out too. She needs a lot of training and would need to be with someone willing to train her and also be able to handle her as she can pull you around easily. She needs a large fenced yard as she loves to run - a must as she will take off without a fence. She is inside most of the day and all night. She is crate trained and housebroken. RS
