I ate my pet-sitter’s sandwich.
Then, while she was freaking out about that, I snuck up and tried to eat her salad too.
Carly is a two year old, 35lb chocolate mix that Best Friend Pet Adoption in Cary NC. She came to us knowing basic commands and is housebroken. She is sweet as can be….but as we soon discovered, also a very stealthy counter surfer!
Hi there! My name is Nemo, but you can call me Nemo the Disemboweler– it’s not shorter, but I prefer it. I absolutely LOVE toys and the more stuffing they have— the better. When I came into rescue with Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas, I was so completely bald due to demodex that DDRTX didn’t even know what color I’d be! Now my coat is growing in and I am SO happy to be alive! I am friendly, sweet, playful and good with just about everyone—though, I have to say that I like to be the king of the castle when it comes to other male dogs. I love to cuddle, go for car rides and give out kisses. I am goofy, silly, loving, desperate to please, very smart and full of life and energy. I am fully housebroken but I am working on personal boundaries because I like to be in the middle of EVERYTHING. I would do best in a house with playful dogs and I’d love to have an active family to play with. My foster people say that if you like the fine arts, you should SEE my ballet turnout! They say I am excellent at first and third position! If your household is looking for a new Principle Male—I could fill the position! Please come check out my profile here!!
NOTE: Due to home visit logistics, DDRTX only adopts to families within Texas.
“I was in disguise!”
Princess was groomed last night. It turns out that under all that fur, she was hiding a stripey body, like a little tiger. She’s even cuter than I suspected. Here are “before” and “after” pictures.
Princess is a sweet, shy dog from Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation in Falls Church, VA. She loves to play with stuffed animals and other small dogs. Once she bonds with her human, she likes to give kisses and cuddle. She is a smart, eager to please girl who has already learned her name, “no”, recall, leash walking, and crate training.
Abbey (the black and tan) is available for adoption through Southern CA Dachshund Relief. She’s good with other dogs and even lets Miss Puppyness, the deaf and blind dachshund, kick her butt when they play. Click here if you’re interested in adopting Abbey!
This is Cleo. She LOVES to be carried about in a tote bag. Don’t be fooled though, she is all Jack Russell and full bubbling energy. Great with children and the ball but dominant with other dogs and prefers a submissive dog as a housemate. Cleo is a stunning 3 year old female Jack Russell Terrier from Los angeles, CA. She’s being adopted through Russell Rescue Inc. She is waiting to become a wonderful companion to one very lucky family! Cleo is attentive and affectionate and is very much a people person. She is outgoing and confident, and full of life. Cleo loves walks and playtime but she also just loves spending time with her people.

“I think I’m a bunny… when we’re not sharing veggies, I steal rabbit pellets and hay!”
We recently started fostering a young bunny named Gumball until he finds his fur-ever home. Our Pomeranian, Ricky, thinks he’s a bunny now, too; he steals rabbit pellets and hay and climbs into the bunny condo when he thinks we’re not looking.
Gumball is a sweet and affectionate bun in the Greater Toronto Area. If you’re interested in adopting him, please visit his Facebook page or Rabbit Rescue Inc. for details!
“I use my chunky foster brother to stay warm although he doesn’t like to cuddle with me.”
We have been fostering Cricket, the smaller pug, for about a month. This 3-year old lady was surrendered to Pug Rescue of Austin in Austin, TX. She came in with fur loss and skin problems. The vet has put on her on a special diet since we believe her issues were caused by food allergies. Although she is still missing some fur and has hyperpigmentation, Cricket has drastically improved. She was in this condition for about a year and a half before her previous owners gave her up, so it’ll probably take just as much time to completely recover.
Cricket is also blind from cataracts and has bilateral luxating patellas (basically she looks a little bowl-legged). Despite these things, she has no problem getting around. She is a sweet, easygoing girl and loves people, children and other dogs. Her interests are playing with squeaky toys, being close to her foster brother, cuddling, napping and playing in the backyard.
I like helping my skin foster sister clean and put away her wooden blocks…never mind the teeth marks and slobber.
I am HELPING!!!
Glennis is a strikingly beautiful petite female Boxer with a deep red and white coat. She was rescued from a kill shelter in the Rio Grande Valley, TX where she had been picked up as a stray. She’s now with a foster family in Austin, TX and is being adopted out through the Austin Boxer Rescue. Glennis is currently heartworm positive, but will be treated by ABR.
Glennis loves humans, children in particular. Glennis would prefer to be an only pet in her home, and has a high prey drive. Her foster mom describes her as a homebody who also does well in public. Glennis has very nice manners and takes direction well from anyone she views as the leader. She is housebroken and crate-trained and is currently learning to walk on a leash.
