    Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Male, 9 years old, 70 lbs. Approximate Age: 9 years old Approximate Weight/Size: 70 lbs. I am an UNDERDOG because.... I am a black dog! Many shelters believe that black dogs do not photograph well, therefore they will not generate enough adoption interest. Location Saved From: Beaufort County, NC Good with: Dogs Not tested with: Kids, Cats Additional info: Lucky's tale moves a million miles a minute because he's just THAT happy. He is as sweet as he is gentle and his beautiful eyes and coat are just icing on the cake. He can't wait to meet his forever family so he can show them all the love he still has to give! Lucky tested HW Positive and has been treated for heartworms prior to arriving in DC - for more information on heartworms click here: https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics Adoption Application: http://bit.ly/adoptrdr Foster Application: https://rdr.formstack.com/forms/foster_app Adoption Application: http://bit.ly/adoptrdr Foster Application: http://bit.ly/fosterapprdr Adoption Process: In order to adopt, we require an adoption application. After you submit an application, if you pass the screening, we will contact you to schedule a phone interview. We will call your references, including your veterinarian and landlord (when appropriate). We will also conduct a home visit. After these steps are complete, you will be approved to adopt a dog. Please note this process takes 1-2 weeks so applications submitted when you are ready to bring a dog home within that time frame. You can meet our adoptable dogs at events, however, we cannot guarantee that dogs at events do not have pre-approved applicants meeting them there as well, so the application is the best way to start the process. Mission Statement: Forever true to “The Underdog”, Rural Dog Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of dogs in shelters who are often overlooked for adoption or rescue. We save the dogs who are at most risk of being euthanized: the hounds, the black dogs, the seniors, the sick and the broken. We make a commitment to reserve a minimum of 50% of the dogs we save to The Underdog. Root For The Underdog! Rural Dog Rescue's home base is in Washington, DC. We adopt to the Washington, DC metropolitan area to include Maryland and Northern Virginia. We support several high kill shelters that euthanize in 72 hours and whose kill rate is 70% or higher in rural areas of Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina. Rural Dog Rescue also helps dogs in need in Washington, DC and Maryland. We are 100% volunteer and foster based and no salaries are paid. 100% of your donation and adoption fee goes to helping the dogs and cats of Rural Dog Rescue. Although we try to be as accurate as possible, Rural Dog Rescue cannot guarantee the breed or full-grown adult size of any of the dogs or puppies in its care. Because many of these dogs were found as strays or are the result of irresponsible, unplanned breeding, we do not know the dog's exact background and can only list breed and size by our best educated guess. If exact breed and size are important to you, please consider adopting a dog from a specific breed rescue. Our goal is for our dogs to be adopted by people who will love and care for them forever for who they are - no matter what breed and size they turn out to be! All dogs go to their new homes spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots, dewormed (although a second deworming may be required), started on heartworm and flea and tick preventative and sometimes microchipped.

    Mike

    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Male, 2 years, 50 lbs Approximate Age: 2 Approximate Weight/Size: Medium I am an UNDERDOG because.... I am a hound mix! Hound breeds are very prominent in the rural south and usually the first to be euthanized at the shelter due to the overpopulation of this breed. Location Saved From: Goldsboro, NC Additional info: Mike is an approximately 2 year old hound mix who came into the shelter as a stray. Mike is blind in one eye. He is shy and reserved and would do best in a home outside the city with another confident and friendly dog. He is warming up to the city, however, and the biggest pre-requisite for his forever home is that he has a canine brother or sister. He's very shy around people, but not aggressive. He truly enjoys everything, particularly other dogs. He doesn't seem to be bothered by wildlife, so no need to worry about Mike chasing after squirrels! He loves the water, but isn't a big swimmer. He is a great pal for any adventure, even just laying around on the couch. He is learning basic training commands and that will really be the key for him as he goes from a more shy dog to a more confident dog who is less wary about unknown circumstances. Once he settles in to a new situation he is fine, which is why the training will help build his confidence even more. Overall he's a quiet, playful, and by-your-side companion. He's got the basics of training down, and he's food motivated enough to continue to enjoy training. He will need to work on the 'wait' command, because he can easily sneak away if his handler isn't watching. Mike is a super-fun little guy who will learn everything he needs to know from your other dog and your people - everything. While he's not super cuddly in traditional ways, he is wildly affectionate in a goofy "learning to love" way. There is literally never a dull moment with Mike pal'ing around. He makes a great office dog, great walker, can go to dog park or daycare, or not. He prefers to hang with his person. He also makes a great running partner (prefers trails but will do pavement if that's what you have). He has endless amounts of energy if there are treats and water included. He can be self-motivated to play in the house, but isn't over-the-top. He refuses to be left out- so be prepared for a lovefest if you want to show your other dog affection. And he's very food-motivated so will be delighted to learn whatever you have to teach him. Don't miss out on the very best second- (or third? fourth?) dog you can add to your pack!! Whoever picks him to join their family will win the pup-lottery!

Hound breeds are very prominent in the rural south and usually the first to be euthanized at the shelter due to the overpopulation of this breed. Location Saved From: Mercer County, WV Jessie may seem to be a shy beauty at first but don't let that demure exterior fool you. Jessie is a happy hound gal who lives to play. Whether it is wrestling indoors or playing "chase me" outdoors with her foster sister hounds, this sweetie is always ready for fun. Don't worry, Jessie also loves to settle down and spend quality quiet time with her person. But as much as she loves playing and snuggling, oh boy, does "Jess Jess" go gaga for food! She literally bounces with joy when she realizes her foster mom is preparing a doggie meal, and sometimes even supplies a hound soundtrack. Jessie is house trained and has good house manners, although she does tend to collect toys in her crate. She likes having a big backyard so she can really stretch those foxhound legs running around. Jess also needs canine companions to feel comfortable and be happy. But mostly Jessie just wants a place to curl up beside her person.

    Breed: Redbone Coonhound-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Redbone Coonhound / Mixed. Female, 43 lbs, 3 years old Female, 43 lbs, Age: 3 years old I am an UNDERDOG because.... I am a hound mix! Hound breeds are very prominent in the rural south and usually the first to be euthanized at the shelter due to the overpopulation of this breed. Location Saved From: North Carolina Good with: Dogs Not tested with with: Cats, Kids Ruby is an approximately 3 year old redbone coonhound mix. She was found by someone who was hiking in NC who came back to their car and found her tied to their car with dog food on the floor next to her. Ruby is a gem of a Redbone Coonhound who just wants to be the sparkle in your eye. Ruby has not always been treated well by humans, and she takes a while to warm up to people, but when she falls in love with you she shows consistent kindness with all the love and devotion her thin frame can muster. She wags with her whole body, and loves to sneak in a kiss or two when you're not expecting it. Ruby is house trained and has very good house manners, although she'll need consistent guidance is her new home to keep up her good habits. Like any young hound, Ruby love to chew but makes good choices if chew toys and bones are available to her, and is easily redirected if she strays. Ruby remains very skittish and sensitive to loud noises and would probably do better in a suburban setting. Like other hounds, she needs lots of exercise and would love a secure, fenced back yard. Finally, Ruby draws comfort and reassurance from other dogs and would greatly benefit from having one or more canine companions, especially if she is left alone while her person or people are away.

After you submit an application, if you pass the screening, we will contact you to schedule a phone interview. We will call your references, including your veterinarian and landlord (when appropriate). We will also conduct a home visit. After these steps are complete, you will be approved to adopt a dog. Please note this process takes 1-2 weeks so applications submitted when you are ready to bring a dog home within that time frame. You can meet our adoptable dogs at events, however, we cannot guarantee that dogs at events do not have pre-approved applicants meeting them there as well, so the application is the best way to start the process. Mission Statement: Forever true to “The Underdog”, Rural Dog Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of dogs in shelters who are often overlooked for adoption or rescue. We save the dogs who are at most risk of being euthanized: the hounds, the black dogs, the seniors, the sick and the broken. We make a commitment to reserve a minimum of 50% of the dogs we save to The Underdog. Root For The Underdog! Rural Dog Rescue's home base is in Washington, DC. We adopt to the Washington, DC metropolitan area to include Maryland and Northern Virginia. We support several high kill shelters that euthanize in 72 hours and whose kill rate is 70% or higher in rural areas of Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina. Rural Dog Rescue also helps dogs in need in Washington, DC and Maryland. We are 100% volunteer and foster based and no salaries are paid. 100% of your donation and adoption fee goes to helping the dogs and cats of Rural Dog Rescue. Although we try to be as accurate as possible, Rural Dog Rescue cannot guarantee the breed or full-grown adult size of any of the dogs or puppies in its care. Because many of these dogs were found as strays or are the result of irresponsible, unplanned breeding, we do not know the dog's exact background and can only list breed and size by our best educated guess. If exact breed and size are important to you, please consider adopting a dog from a specific breed rescue. Our goal is for our dogs to be adopted by people who will love and care for them forever for who they are - no matter what breed and size they turn out to be! All dogs go to their new homes spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots, dewormed (although a second deworming may be required), started on heartworm and flea and tick preventative and sometimes microchipped.

    Breed: Redbone Coonhound-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Redbone Coonhound / Mixed. Male, 6 years, 60 lbs Approximate Age: 6 Approximate Weight/Size: 65 lbs I am an UNDERDOG because.... I am a hound mix! Hound breeds are very prominent in the rural south and usually the first to be euthanized at the shelter due to the overpopulation of this breed. Location Saved From: Caroline County Good with: Dogs Untested with: Cats, Kids Additional info: Patrick came to Rural Dog in the worlds worst shape. He was severely emaciated, had numerous growths that needed to be removed and was heartworm positive. He has since had his growths removed, gained plenty of weight, and has completed heartworm treatment. Patrick has been living with a foster family throughout all of these treatments and they can not begin to express how wonderful of a dog he is! He is a laid back hound dog who wants nothing more than a soft couch to lay on or a good old pine tree to take a nap under. He will do anything for an ear rub and will go anywhere for a treat. He is crate trained and almost housebroken, though his new family will need to do a little follow up on the housebreaking rules. He is fantastic with other dogs and really seems to enjoy their company. Somehow, with everything he has been through, he has managed to keep an upbeat attitude, be grateful for anything he has and keeps his tail wagging. There is so much more to Patrick but you will have to meet him to find out for yourself!
