Meet Gavin Theodore! Gavin ended up being seized in a county that didn’t allow bully breed types, so he was only allowed to be saved by a rescue at the shelter he found himself in. He is a very good boy with a lot of playful "puppy" energy but is super smart and listens very well to redirection/calming directions. He has done well with other dogs here at the rescue. He is a super sweet dude with the most beautiful green eyes.
Gavin is currently not neutered and we will need to get him neutered prior to any custody transfer for adoption.
Meet Mason Timothy! Mason is the cutest boy! Don't let his size fool you–he is a big baby and has the "little" bark to prove it! :) Mason found himself at a shelter being very thin and in need of a lot of vetting to get him healthy! He is a happy, healthy boy now and is learning that he will be able to get (and eat) his food and treats every day and that no one is going to take them from him and leave him to go hungry. He has come a long way since we rescued him but still can guard his food (mostly it is just high value treats now like his peanut butter), so we are continuing to work with Mason before we will allow him to be adopted. He has never been aggressive or mean when he guards his food; he just doesn't want you taking it. We also respect Mason's boundaries and believe that is why he has come so far in this issue. Mason is a bit "pulley" on leash and can be a little hand shy at times, but he is a super loving boy and he even has a wonderful playful side. He does very well in his crate and needs time to adjust in the house.
Mason is currently not neutered and we will need to get him neutered prior to any custody transfer for adoption.
Meet Neptune Levi! NEPTUNE!!! Neptune is one of our RADAR dogs and has been through his heartworm treatment and is now heartworm negative! We rescued this boy last year just in time to save him from a hurricane at a shelter that has outside kennels only after he was left behind by the rescue transport that took all the other dogs except for him! Neptune is a fun-loving guy, but he is a whole lot of "puppy" energy. We are working on establishing better manners, and he has come a long way, but he still can be quite unrefined at times. We love him and his goofball antics!
Neptune is currently not neutered and we will need to get him neutered prior to any custody transfer for adoption.
Meet GOTTI JONATHAN! Gotti is good with dogs, cats, and kids. He loves them all (even babies). This happy-go-lucky guy loves a game of fetch, and when you say "last time,” he knows that will be the last throw. He heads right for the back door to wait for you to lead him in. He loves his "binky" (Kong) and likes to carry it with him or have it close by. Gotti is super sweet and does well when left unattended in the home. He does okay in a crate/kennel but prefers not to be in one when he doesn’t need to be. Who could blame him? He wants to be with his people and animal friends. He can guard his stuff from other dogs, so it is best to feed separately, and I would wager play with his binky separately as well. Gotti walks very well on leash and makes an excellent jogging partner!
Gotti had a run in with the home dog in his foster home and he got the worst of it. He had to be taken to the emergency vet and has been to the vet several times since for treatment and to check healing progress.
Say hello to MARVIN JESSE everyone!!! Marvin was set to be euthanized at the shelter he was at because they were full and needed his space for more incoming dogs, and as the longest resident there, he was set to be the first to be euthanized. Marvin found himself at the shelter after being saved from the neglected and abused end of a chain. He was very scared and very underweight with some skin issues and was heartworm positive, but thanks to RADAR Dogs we have some help getting his treatment taken care of! He was put inside, with air conditioning (the shelter he came from is a setup of a concrete slab with kennels-all outdoors), blankets, yummy treats, and lots of patient and loving people for the first time at the vet. Marvin is nervous meeting new people, but once he sees you are good people, he instantly loosens up into a playful puppy-type goober!
Marvin is in need of neutering and heartworm treatment before he will be able to be adopted out.
PRISCILLA NICOLE!!! Unfortunately this senior baby girl was in really bad condition when she arrived here. Her skin was scabby, she was full of matted hair, and there were flaked out chunks of scabs caught up in her hair. The sweater the shelter put on her was sticking to scabs and was filthy. The whole time she was at the previous shelter, she was not bathed... not even once. Part of her lower jaw was also broken. She really loved being loved on during the car ride here and did very well in the car (she got nervous on stops and who can blame her after being dumped at a rest stop off the highway)! Lil miss Priscilla got a medicated bath immediately after walking around the yard exploring for a little bit (technically a shower because she was so scared I got in with her). I clipped out her matting and the scabs that were to entangled to come out and and dried her off gently but very well since it is cold outside and when we were all done she gave a bunch of happy tail wags and was visibly feeling much better!
Priscilla is in need of an echo and dental surgery.
Fawzy, which means triumphant, is only around 3 or 4 years old. He hasn't had an easy life. We would even argue he's probably had no life at all, and until very recently, has only known humans to be the things that monsters are made of. He has been starved and has much weight to gain. He has sores all over his body from most likely lying/sitting on concrete most of his days, he has hair loss (probably from flea dermatitis), and malnutrition. Most of his teeth are severely worn down from most likely chewing on whatever he could to try to eat or survive or keep himself entertained. He is wary of touch at first, but once he knows it won't be hurtful, he warms up to it. He was terrified and shutdown at the shelter, and he was scheduled to be euthanized. He has a good road ahead of him for a full recovery, and given his life, he is heartworm positive. He was able to snuggle (probably for the first time in his life), to watch television, to lay on a cushy, soft couch, and play with fluffy toys on his first night here.
Fawzy is in need of neutering and heartworm treatment before he will be able to be adopted out.
Meet Monty Domino! He is only a little over a year old, so he does have some puppy energy left. He knows sit and sits very patiently waiting for his treats, which he takes gently.
After arriving to the rescue, Monty began acting unlike himself. He was taken to the vet, and they performed an ultra sound on him because she was feeling something uniform within his intestines. The ultrasound showed that his intestinal tract had moved in on itself. She said it is usually caused by inflammation, which could've been caused by a foreign material he did throw up or the bad case of parasites he had when first at shelter. She also said the downside to this is that it is a condition, so should he get something that doesn't agree with him in the future, this is very likely the way his body will respond to it. His intestine repair required surgery and re sectioning.
Meet Dexter Allen! This handsome dude still needs to be neutered, and that will be taken care of prior to any adoption taking place, but he is available! Dexter is a fun-loving guy that enjoys fetch and tug. He has done very well with kids, and we have had no issues with his interactions with other dogs while in rescue. Dexter does well in his crate but does take some time to get used to the house training, as he was kept outside all the time in his previous home. However, with routine and consistency, he catches on quickly. He loves to snuggle as much as he loves to play and has the cutest smile!
Dexter will need to be neutered before he can be adopted out.
Calvin is not yet available for adoption, but we are working with him to overcome his nervousness around people from having been severely abused.
Calvin will also need to be neutered before he can be adopted out.
Meet Toby Greyson! This big boy is one of the wiggliest of the wiggle butts that we know! We don’t know much about his past, as he was picked up as a stray, and no one ever came for him, but Toby has been the perfect houseguest since coming to the rescue. He does very well both in the house and in his crate and is very gentle when taking treats. He likes to stay close to his person when out back and loves to run around for short bursts of play time. He loves cheese and takes his treats very gently while doing a little prancy tap dance! The closer you get with his treats, the faster his tail wags! Toby is available for foster or adoption. He is unknown with cats and has done very well with the dog interactions he has had since being with us at the rescue.
Toby needs to be neutered prior to adoption or foster, but he has just completed his heartworm treatment, so we are also making sure he is healthy enough to be neutered before we schedule for him!
