Rescue Me ID: 15-03-23-00299Piccidile (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Seizures 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] He is the sweetest little puppy. Loves affection, but he has an issue with his heart so that he can not get excited or be very active. I would love to keep him, but we have 3 dogs now who are very active and it causes him stress. He would do very well with a single adult or couple with no children or dogs.

He LOVES BEING OUTSIDE. A fully fenced yard is an absolute for him. Our goal is to find the right home for TOBY. He is easy going, comical and quite a ' talker'. He is a beautiful dog in person, and we do not know if he is allergy friendly but he does not shed. He is a smart dog and appears to learn quickly. He appears to be a Glen of Imaal mix, so you may want to read about the breed, which is allergy ... (Read More)friendly. These are good family dogs, Toby would probably be a good candidate to agility, or hiking or outdoor fun. He is available for immediate placement through making an application then a meet and greet. He is fully vetted, about 25 lbs.and thought to be under 2 years old. Please follow us on our Facebook page for updates too as well as watch him on the video in the snow!

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-17-00056Faith (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Malnourished, Abused/Neglected, Fearful/Anxious 

    My neighbors and I had seen this poor sweet dog(brindle pitbull mix) hanging around Buttonwoods for a couple of weeks in December. She was so afraid of people, she would run at the site of one. Her tail was tucked between her legs and pinned to her belly. On Christmas morning I saw her and decided I was going to take as long as possible to get her to trust me. After three hours I got her in my yard to feed her. And once I put a bowl of food down for her, the walls started to break down. Right from the beginning I could see the abuse and trauma she has been through. The first time I pulled out the mop, she peed herself and fell to the ground ... (Read More)shaking. So she was definitely beaten heavily. But being a dog they snap out of it quick. In just a couple of weeks, we have made enough progress that made me fall in love with her. But I am being forced to move, and may have to live out of my car for a bit. And this poor dog does not deserve anymore human bullshit. She is an angel. Not aggressive at all. In fact because of what she has endured, she is very submissive. Does not have fear biting capabilities. I am well versed in dog psychology, and I have done al I can to test any dangers. She has been great with my Golden Retriever and both cats. They all sleep together already. I must make sure she goes to a loving, kind, caring, and understanding home. She still has a lot of nervous energy, but each day it subsides. She has already learned sit, lay, easy, heal, stay, when she had no clue what any of this meant before. She is a very fast learner. When someone knocks, she barks. But after a little reassurance she is fine. So please, anyone looking for a real sweetheart, Let me know. I really do not want to lose her. She has taught me so much about life and love. But my mother is on her final lap, and I have to care for her. Faith deserves more than my time and energy will allow. Call me. At 401-738-1252 Leave a message, I will get back to you. Or find me on facebook. David Cunetta or https://www.facebook.com/dcunetta Remember, she needs a kind, caring heart. (Less)

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.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs are red-green colorblind. Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
