Rescue Me ID: 14-08-27-00113Bandit (male)

English Setter    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Malnourished,
 Abused/Neglected 

    Bandit was abandoned with his sister LULU. He is very lovable and needs attention. He sometimes has a hard time walking, but the reason is unknown. He is slightly food aggressive, however he was abandoned without food so this is probably the reason. I would prefer to keep him and his sister together, and place them in a home with no other dogs. These two are extremely lovable, they have great temperaments, and deserve a better life from what they have experienced.

English Springer Spaniel Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Arya is a miracle rescue and is looking for her forever home. She is a 4-5 year old spaniel/ dachshund mix. She is a true survivor. Arya lay sick on the side of the for at least six hours until she was rescued. She was in very bad shape and many thought euthanasia was the only option. With a lot of love and care Arya is healthy now and ready to become a beloved companion. Arya is a very calm and laid back dog, and she loves to cuddle. She would be a spectacular dog for any family. Arya can be a little reserved at first (but her tail will still wag the whole time!) and after a pet or two on the head, or a treat, she will be your best friend. ... (Read More)Arya does excellent with children, dogs, and cats. She does not chew household items up nor has she attempted to dig while outside for play time and potty breaks. Arya does get very animated for food and treat, she will eagerly attempt to figure out what she need to do to get her treat! She is smart and very easy to train but is not overly energetic. Her favorite past time is snuggling with her people! Arya is crate trained and is working hard on house training. We feel with a little time she will have it down pat! Arya does have a spinal deformity which is genetic. The vet calls Arya's condition spinalosis but that's a generic term. So while she will not be running any marathons anytime soon, our vet is extremely confident she will have a long and normal life. This issue does not require extra care, she can get up and down stairs just fine and you can't even tell by looking or interacting with her! Arya is spayed and current on all of her vaccines. She is about 25lbs. If you are interested in adopting this little fighter please apply here: http://www.jotform.us/form/33535710679157 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-23-00674Samson/ Sammy (male)

Staffordshire Bull Terrier    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    UPDATE: SAMMY WILL BE BROUGHT TO HIGH KILL SHELTER TOMORROW IF PLACEMENT CAN NOT BE MADE....THE FAMILY CAN NO LONGER KEEP SAMMY! I AM NOT THE OWNER OF SAMMY JUST TRYING TO HELP PLACE HIM! Samson/Sammy is a five year-old brindle American Staffordshire Terrier, Samson or Sammy for short. He is about 60 lbs at his last weigh in. He's housebroken, trained, walks well on leash, and is very obedient and submissive toward humans; he knows sit, stay, lie down, with me, halt, and a variety of other commands. He is a wonderful companion in every sense and is as at home sleeping in all day by your side as he is getting up and going for an early morning ... (Read More)run. He's accustomed to walks about 2-3 miles per day but does just fine even if left to his own devices all afternoon while you're at work. He is housebroken and it's been years since he had an 'accident' indoors and while he's a prodigious chewer when it comes to his toys, he is not destructive of property at all. He's quick to pick up on your emotions and will always be there to enjoy your happiness or to comfort you in your sadness. He's amazing around both adults and children and he loves to play; especially chasing his ball or playing tug-o-war with his ropes and knows not to get too rough with people, he's never bitten or been too aggressive with anyone. He gets along with dogs he that he considers to be in his 'pack'; I also have an 8 month old blue nose puppy who is like a son to Sammy and he has several dog friends with whom he gets along very well. Unfortunately, he does not get along very well with some dogs, particularly those that he's not familiar with or who he doesn't see regularly which is why I can no longer keep him myself. My mother recently moved to town from CT and has a much smaller dog of her own with whom Samson does not get along at all. Similarly, my fiancee has two Shih Tzu's with whom he hasn't had any issues yet but which are small enough that even a single aggressive incident could be grievous or even fatal for them. I've tried diligently to socialize him with other animals with some good success but he remains too unpredictable to be trusted fully. This has led to him being excluded from many functions in which the other dogs are involved and it just isn't fair to him to be locked up inside or left at home while the other dogs are frolicking about enjoying the day so I'm looking for an individual or family with no other pets who is looking for a companion. I cannot stress enough that he is a lover, not a fighter and I will not let him go to anyone looking for a 'tough guy' pitbull'| that is not Sammy. Even in those instances that he has been aggressive, he hasn't inflicted any damage and has really only escalated his dominance behavior beyond what's appropriate for the size of the other dog. It breaks my heart to let him go but I have to do what's right for him and keeping him penned up while the other dogs in the family play just isn't it. He is neutered and has all of his vaccines as well as the rattlesnake series of vaccines as I spend a good amount of time outdoors with him. Given his issues socializing with other animals, you should most definitely have previous experience with dogs and preferably with strong willed breeds like pits and am staffs. If you're interested, please contact me to arrange a time to come and meet him and see if the two of you are a fit. (Less)

Ivy gets along with most dogs but would need to meet your pooch just to make sure. She is relatively new to walking on a leash and tends to tug and will require a strong leader to walk her. Ivy loves to give dog kisses and would rather sit with you to cuddle then play all day. Ivy has been spayed and is current on all vaccinations.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Rhode Island
    Dogs can make good pets in Rhode Island if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Rhode Island Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.)
