Posted Breed: Chow Chow / Boxer / Mixed. Betty 4 year old female chow/boxer mix, potty trained, ok with dogs, kids over 12. Betty is our 4 year old little boxer chow mix. She is just adorable and sweet but can be shy with new people and new situations. Betty loves to play with the other dogs in her household and would prefer to play with the dogs rather than with the humans in her household. Betty is good with dogs with proper introductions and likes calm quiet people as opposed to a loud and boisterous household. Betty needs a home that will be patient with her shyness and aloofness and will accept her for her own unique personality. Betty has mastered the basics of potty training and has done very well when kept to a schedule and is fantastic in a crate. Betty thrives on a routine and would do best in a home that can provide that. Betty seems to prefer women to men and would do well in a house with older children Update! Betty has been making some huge progress! Betty is warming up to people much faster than she did when she first came in and once she knows you, she becomes your shadow! She still takes to women faster than men, but has been making friends with men when given a little time to warm up. Betty is currently fostered with cats and has done well with them. Betty is also fostered with dogs and loves to play! She would love a home that has another dog to play with! Betty will need to go to a home with no children or children over 12 as she is nervous at first and needs a home that will give her a little time to adjust. Betty is potty trained as well as crate trained. If you are willing to give her a little time, she is a complete sweetheart.Please note we do not have a central kennel facility, all of our pets are located in foster homes.

Request to Add a New Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Cookie 6 and a half year old male Chihuahua, not good with children or cats, good with dogs, basic potty trained Cookie is looking for a quiet home that will give him lots of time to warm up to them. Cookie is a very nervous boy who was pulled from a hoarding situation where he got very little socialization. He is currently fostered with dogs and has done very well with them. Needs to be kept on a schedule for continued house training. He does like to chase cats so he would not do well in a home with cats. Cookie cannot go to a home with children as they will overwhelm him and it would set him up for failure in his road to recovery. Cookie tends to take better to women than men but has started to come up to his foster mother's brother. Cookie will need a very patient home that will not push him and give him all the time he needs to become comfortable with them. Once he is comfortable he is a sweet boy who will look for some love and attention on his terms. He would love to be adopted with his brother Beau.Please note we do not have a central kennel facility, all of our pets are located in foster homes.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed. Anndalina 4 year old female, chi mix. black with white, no kids, okay with some dogs, basics of potty training. Anndalina came to us as an emergency surrender. This poor girl was trying to chew her tail off and needed emergency treatment. We rushed her into our vet and it was determined her tail would need to be amputated to prevent any infection from spreading. This poor nervous girl was whisked into surgery and brought back to one of our foster homes. Anndalina has had a rough beginning to her life and she will need a patient and understanding home to help her become the dog we know she can be. We would recommend she go to a child free home and a home where her Chihuahua bark will not be a problem. A nice quiet couple or single person would be the ideal place for her as she can become overwhelmed with too many visitors. Once she bonds to her people she is very affectionate but it will take a while for this nervous girl to settle into any new home and she will need to be given time to calm and adjust.Please note we do not have a central kennel facility, all of our pets are located in foster homes.

This 3 year old girl was part of a cruelty case that another rescue was helping in. The other rescue was not able to help Maggie Mae overcome some of her handling and fear issues and asked our rescue to see what we could do. Maggie Mae has bonded with her foster dad very very well and will let him do any handling he wants with her but now we are working on desensitizing her with everyone also in the world. Maggie Mae is sweet as pie and deserves a chance to overcome her issues that are a direct result of her former life. Please consider sponsoring Maggie during her recovery time. Please email office@rainbowrescues.org to set up a one time donation or monthly help for Maggie May's care. Thank you.
