Rescue Me ID: 17-04-10-00064Elsi (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Looking for a new family/couple for our loving family dog ELSI. Dear Friends, The Huizinga family is scheduled to leave Kenya coming June. I want to ask if anyone would love, or has received any inquiries about any family trying to find a mature 'short hair mix', well trained and obedient, child-loving, healthy, vaccinated dog. Our Elsi is 11 years old. Although she still is very play full and a very fast runner for a stick or ball, she is also peaceful and sedate. Elsi is not a noisy dog. She may respond for two seconds to other dogs barking in the area, but she does not join the 'midnight howl' of those other annoying untrained ... (Read More)neighbourhood dogs. Elsi hasn't been sick for even one day in her life. Regretfully we cannot take Elsi with us to The Netherlands. Elsi is a dog for the outdoors where she can freely run in a large garden. We have had Elsi since 2014, from her then first owner. Although Elsi does not tolerate other animals around her, she is wonderful with people (she does not jump, bark, growl, or lick, she knows her place in the hierarchy and she listens and responds well to simple commands such as 'come, sit, stay, down'). In the past, several children with a fear of dogs who came for playdates, left our compound the same day stroking or even hugging Elsi. Elsi must be kept in a well-secured walled/fenced garden/compound from which there are no holes to escape, because once outside she is not used to be around other animals and could get into a fight. If you have monkeys in your garden but like them to stay away from your house, Elsi is the one to help you out. She should be left to roam around the garden freely (she should NOT be caged at any time). She normally sleeps on the covered porch (except during thunder storms or fireworks, of which she is very afraid and she needs to be inside and will sleep in her basket in the hallway). Although an outdoor dog with us, she wouldn't mind to become an indoor dog at another family's house. Note that the former sporty owners took her running on a leash daily in Karura forest, which she must have loved. We were not in an opportunity to do so, but a new owner with a strong grip should not hesitate to late her on a run/hike (always on the leash). Please spread the word and let us know. Warm regards & grateful for your assistance! The Huizinga's/Miranda. Elsi loves to play with (foot)ball and sticks. Elsi is a middle size 'short hair mix' dog Elsi let people and children come close. She loves hugs and is very social. Beside being social she is very friendly and patient. Also a 'therapy' dog for children who originally are scared of dogs. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-06-00035Honey and Lulu (female)

Maltese Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Honey and Lulu are two seven year old maltese/pomerian/poodle cross sisters whom I've raised since puppies. They are loving, obedient, highly intelligent dogs who have given me an enormous amount of happiness and love over the years. If they get a good walk each day they are happy to sit quietly with you after that. They are not yappers but will bark to alert you if someone is at the front door, or if their water bowl is empty. Honey loves the ball thrown for her and Lulu loves a cuddle. They have had all their vaccinations and are rabies-free. I have to leave the country as I cannot renew my visa and I'm in despair about having to leave ... (Read More)them behind, but I'm hoping - praying - I can find a loving, happy home for them here. They are the sweetest, most loving dogs in the world. A quiet home with lots of yard to run around in would be paradise for them. They would need to be adopted together as to separate them would cause them great anguish. If you are interested in meeting Honey and Lulu, please contact me. Thankyou. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Kenya
    Dogs can make good pets in Kenya 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!
