Rescue Me ID: 16-09-27-00063Rufus (male)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Initially found as a stray, Rufus found himself at an animal shelter and when nobody picked him up he was in need of a place to go. Rufus is a sweet little boy who needs someone with understanding and willingness to allow him to set his own boundaries and warm up on his terms. When first placed into foster care, Rufus was extremely fearful to the point of snapping. He has improved tremendously, however, still is wary of being picked up or people getting close to his face. This is something that may continue to improve with time, but given we are unsure of his treatment prior to coming to the rescue there is a possibility he may always be ... (Read More)fearful or snappy with these things. Rufus is very loving and snuggly when he is allowed to set the pace and gets along great with other dogs. Special Needs: heart murmur, Rufus requires an oral medication twice daily which costs less than $20 per month supply.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-29-00435Horatio *Overlooked* (male)

Foxhound Mix    Age: Adult

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

    We've had a dog named Horatio for quite some time now, I can't stress enough what a wonderful dog he is through and through. Horatio was found wandering as a stray completely skin and bones and flea ridden. His skin was a mess from the constant irritation of fleas biting him. We have worked with the shelter in the area he was found for quite some time now, I can say he was more than likely someone's hunting dog, kept in an outdoor pen his entire life, then cut him loose when he wasn't useful any longer. From how skinny he was, I can only imagine how many nights he had to go on his own without food in his belly. After getting this good boy ... (Read More)into foster care, some much needed food in his emaciated body, and some vet care, his personality has blossomed. He only knows of happiness in his foster home, his tail is always wagging and his face always enthused. He has the most charming little prance which he shows off every time someone mentions 'walk' and an almost more charming gallop when he's chasing around his canine foster sister. Horatio lives with another dog, in a family with men and women and a cat and has shown nothing but love towards all of them. Whenever kids come to our events looking to pet a dog, we immediately show them Horatio. His sweet nature manner is loved by all and he always all the kids with kisses. He is potty trained and has never chewed anything other than his specified chew toys or shown any behavioral issues whatsoever. He is honestly a perfect dog. The only problem we have run into when trying to find him a family to call his own is that he's estimated to be around 8 years. I can tell you he has no clue about his age, as I mentioned earlier he chases around his foster sister and loves to go on walks. He just seems to be written off by people because of his age. Horatio is the sweetheart of the rescue volunteers and they love him so much. He sits patiently at adoption events weekly and we all watch with our hearts breaking as he is passed over. Well, except everyone loves him because he is so wonderful. **Because I have been looking for my home for quite some time now, I qualify for being overlooked. This means, I am available to applicants outside or the normal adoption range** Wanna meet me? I will be attending regular ESP adoption events.
