verifiedPosted Breed: Thai Ridgeback. Female, 3 years, 30 lbs Crystal is full of love! This goofy girl is friendly and aims to please. She is smart and has already learned sit, stay, place and heel. She loves to play fetch and enjoys her toys too. She's a very wary of strangers, especially men. However, once you give her a little space and time, she warms up to each person. Once she is ready to welcome you into her world, she is very friendly and affectionate. She definitely needs some space and time to get to know you and transition to a new situation. Just wait for her to come to you. She isn't food motivated so training is a bit more complicated. However, she knows the basics, is super smart, and likes shrimp as a training tool! She also loves playing with squeaky toys. I think she would do best in a home with outdoor space. She loves being outside on walks, and when she's inside, she spends most of her time looking out the window. She's been a pleasure to foster, and I know when she finds her permanent home, she'll be covering her new family in kisses for years to come. She would make a great running companion and also loves to relax at home with her people. This bright girl will do well with someone who has experience as the pack leader. We want to set all our dogs up for success -- with Crystal, we can offer a foster-to-adopt trial period with insight from our trainer who has worked extensively with her. We will be there for you every step of the way should you have questions. Crystal is house trained and crate trained. She needs someone to enforce what she's learned with crate training during a transition. She is not good with cats or kids and will growl if a dog comes near her. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about getting started with this incredible girl. Approximate Age: 3 years Approximate Weight/Size: ~30lbs I am an UNDERDOG because... I was rescued from the illegal dog meat trade Location Saved From: Thailand Needs experienced adopter? Yes Needs a Foster in the D.C. area until a forever home is found?: Yes. She is in a Washington, DC kennel boarding right now. Needs a Home With Another Dog?: No - She is currently doing well in doggie daycare and does not react to other dogs when walked on leash. However, she would do best in a home without other dogs because she prefers to be the alpha.

I was stolen from the streets of northern Thailand and I am a survivor of the illegal dog meat trade. My journey was very difficult. They crowded a bunch of dogs into a metal cage and put hundreds of these cages onto a big truck. The truck drove in the middle of the night towards the border in an attempt to leave Thailand. We could not understand why we were in this cage and why these people were doing this to us. As we traveled towards the border, we could hear the younger dogs crying with fear. Many of the older dogs were unable to cope with the stress and the heat and died. We awoke to the rattling of cages and the truck stopping abruptly. There was lots of yelling and the dog smugglers were hauled away and we were released from the horrible cages and put into another large truck. Thankfully we were rescued from an unthinkable fate and taken to a safe shelter where we lived with hundreds of other dogs that are cared for by "The Soi Dog Foundation". The Soi Dog Foundation in Thailand contacted Rural Dog Rescue and asked if they could help Asha and me. Asha has been adopted." Apply to adopt: http://bit.ly/adoptrdr 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.
