Adoptable Dogs

If you have a pet that you would like to have adopted, please complete a Courtesy Post Contract. Then, 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

Gator Gator  

Gator is a male Boxer/Hound mix, born on May 11, 2016.  He is a wonderfully sweet and playful dog. He came from a good home with quite a few children but he wasn't well socialized outside of the home in his formative time. He does warm up to strangers now quite easily but takes him a few minutes. He has a very protective bark and is a good guard. He settles down when told and is working very well with basic commands. He is 100% crate trained and house broken and loves to play with dogs of any kind. He needs a somewhat active home that can give him some guidance and he would do best in a home with another social dog he can take cues from. He is neutered and fully vetted.  Local adoption only! The adoption fee is $125. KaylaP

Kane Kane  

Kane is a male pit mix, born on May 1, 2016.  Kane is obedient, loving, and smart. He's learned sit and I'm teaching him the command "easy" so if he's hand fed a treat he's takes it gently. He's got a healthy appetite and is filling out really nice. He's good with other dogs, and great with kids.  He's been with my little 6 pound dogs with no issues. He's played with neighborhood dogs fine. I think he would be fine with my big dogs too, just my big dogs aren't fine with him. I also have been periodically putting my hand in his food bowl, scooping up the food and letting eat out of my hand, that way I know he won't he food aggressive. He does great with it, he actually likes to give kisses when he's fed. He's done fine in the house, I don't know if he's completely house broke bc he's not stayed in for long periods at a time. The adoption fee is $125. TW
