Potato Jade female

2017-12-02

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Potato Jade is an intake from Hurricane Irma. She was found wandering in nasty weather, and she remained unclaimed, even though we have tried to find her original owners. Potato is a short round girl (hence the name). She does fine with cats (most cats are bigger than she is!), but will sometimes bark at them. Potato likes to instigate light play with calm dogs, but she is intimidated by very active dogs. She seems to be more comfortable around women, and needs a little time to adjust to new surroundings. Potato LOVES curling up in doggie beds and she prefers to have a variety to chose from.

Shamrock female

2017-04-23

Location: Oklahoma

Shamrock (aka Shammie) was rescued from a hoarding situation, along with her sister Thistle (recently adopted). They came to their foster home very fearful and traumatized, so Thistle was sent to another foster home, to get individual attention. Over the past months Shammie has worked hard to be a normal puppy. She's worked very hard on housebreaking and crate training, and she has accomplished her goals! Shammie was born on April 7, 2016 - which makes her a bit over a year old. She weighs 12 pounds, and is at a very good weight for her age. Shammie loves playing with her foster-siblings, and even plays with the cat & kitten in her foster home. She has not been around children while in foster-care, but should do well with slightly older kids who know how to treat a dog. To see more of Shammie's pictures please use this link.

Sheba female

2013-09-29

Location: Indiana

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Hi! I'm Sheba, a 7 year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. Somehow I found myself stranded in a rural Ohio shelter when my family was no longer able to care for me. That's when I got lucky and Ratbone found me. I'm currently living with my fostermom and her dogs. I'm fine with other dogs, although I was a little frightened of the big dog a first, but I got use to him. My fostermom says I'm the sweetest thing and love everyone. I do think everyone should like me, and I want them to pet me; I'm very friendly. I probably should be in a home with adults or older children - no small, young children, as I'm a little set in my ways. I have this unique personality that when I want something I growl to let you know. I'm not mean at all, just trying to get your attention. Did I mention that I'm housebroken, too? I'm sure if you looked at my pictures you'll notice that I'm a little chunky. My fostermom says I need to lose weight and we have to work on that.... Well, I'm an older girl, and I do enjoy my food! I have a bad habit that my fostermom is trying to stop, but I'm not cooperating... I like to sneak in the bathroom and unroll the toilet paper, and I do eat some of it, but I'm hungry! I like to go for walks, too! So if you're looking for an older, friendly, mostly quiet (OK - I do bark a bit, especially at the dogs next door) girl that just wants to be loved, petted, go for a nice walk and have a soft cushion to lay on (preferably on a couch or chair).... you've found her! Here are some more pictures of me.

Trina female

2018-02-11

Location: Florida

Trina came to us right before Christmas. She and her brother were surrendered to us because their former family could not take care of them, and the Holidays were coming. Trina is a very sweet girl, and LOVES to instigate play with other dogs. She is crate trained, walks well on a leash and LOVES to get kisses. Trina is afraid of loud noises like fireworks and loud thunderstorms. She is 6-7 months old and around 12 pounds. We call Trina & her brother "the Spaghetti"s because they have long, graceful, thin legs.

Mable female

2009-02-28

Not Available!

Location: Oklahoma

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Mable came to Ratbone Rescues after her owner passed away. She has been in her foster home for a few years now, and is looking for her forever home. Mable’s weight stays around 15 pounds. She is very well mannered and leash trained; when walking, if the leash touches her backside she will stop and sit, and move only when told to do so. Mable likes to sleep curled up in her own bed (she doesn't like crates), but will jump in bed with you during thunderstorms. She loves to have her belly rubbed, go for long walks in the park, and lay around. Mable is not a barker, unless someone is at the door or in her yard. If a dog could be described as a perfect little lady – that description would fit Mable. Children love her, as do the adults who meet her. She does not play with toys or other dogs, and seems to be a loner - although the younger foster dog in the home follows her around (which Mable doesn't seem to mind). Mable will be 13 years old in 2015, and she wears her age very well. As you can see, she has a beautiful face and eyes, and with her gentle personality she is a favorite with visitors. To see all of Mable's pictures please click here. Mable does have a thyroid issue, which she takes medicine for twice daily. The cost of her medicine is $15.00 per month. Mable is a sweet, lovable dog, looking for that special someone to spend her time with. Would that be you?
