He is heart worm positive, lyme and Ehrlichia positive as well. It is evident that he has had a hard life because his teeth are worn down to nubs.

Gunther still tries:). He is being treated for the lyme and Ehrlichia and when finished with his medications ... (Read More)will start heart worm treatment.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-22-00552Willow (female)

Bluetick Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Willow Breed: Blue Tick Coonhound/Walker Hound Mix Age: approx. 5 yrs. Sex: Female (spayed) Weight: 42 lbs Vaccinations: Current Microchipped: Yes Willow came to Rainbow very 'shut down'. So much so that she wouldn't even walk. We had to carry her into the vet. Her story: The story began when she was 'bothering the neighbors' cats' according to one of the shelter volunteers, so animal control trapped her. She spent the entire time in the animal control kennel cowering in the corner. Rainbow received a call at 11:15 am on April 18 begging us to help this poor little girl. She was scheduled to be euthanized at noon! Without hesitation, ... (Read More)we agreed to pull her. She was in a high kill shelter in a rural area of another state. A rescue group in a neighboring county agreed to physically pull her and board her at their vet until transport could be arranged. She was transported the next day to our vet where we met her for the first time. She had her head tucked between the side of the car and the seat :(. We carried her into the vet and boarded her so she could be vetted before taking her to the foster. Two days later we transferred her to her foster. She was initially scared but her two new foster siblings made her feel welcome. She has come out of her shell and loves playing with 'Leroy' her foster brother. Mabel just keeps an eye on her to be sure that she is comfortable. Willow loves her new fosters and gets along with other dogs. We're not sure about cats but because of the original reason for her 'incarceration', she should probably go to a home with no cats. Small children might also scare her so she will need a home with older, calm children. A 6 ft. privacy is also a must, especially with hounds who love to run and sniff. UPDATE: Our little Willow had her consult with the Ophthalmologist. She IS blind in the left eye. They think it was an old eye injury which requires no medications and isn't painful. We want to THANK RADAR (Raising Aid for Dogs At Risk) for paying for the consult! If you are that loving, caring home who would protect her for the rest of her life, please call Esther or Dallas at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-07-00604Reeses (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Reeses is a fun loving clown. His favorite thing to do is jump. He would be great for agility or a runner who needs a partner. Learning tricks comes easy for this smart special boy. He does the 'commando crawl', sit, down, shake hands, roll over among other things. He loves the clicker and playing with a box. Reeses is crate trained and house trained. Despite being abandoned, he loves people but is too energetic for young children. Older children would be a better match. Playing with other dogs is something that he could do all day long. Cats are another story. He thinks of them as squeaky toys and therefore shouldn't be adopted to anyone ... (Read More)with cats. If you want a fun-loving clown to keep you on your toes, please call Dallas or Esther at 757-583-8777 or email rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net. (Less)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Angel is a very sweet 7 yr. old female American Staffordshire Terrier. She is spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. She weighs 61 lbs. and wants to be a lap dog. She is crate trained, house trained and knows sit, down, stay, and her left and right. She loves people, children and most other dogs; however, she is selective about which doggy friends she plays with. When she wants something, or wants to go out, she sings. She has a very good voice. She was abandoned by her irresponsible owner with her 10 one-week old puppies. Her pups have been adopted, but not her. She desperately wants her 'forever' home. Angel needs a family who ... (Read More)is experienced with this breed and will give her the love and patience she deserves.

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-07-00544Reese (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Reese was due to be put down within hours of being pulled from a shelter in NC in April 2012. She was heartworm positive and very sick. She is completely healthy now and microchipped, spayed, and up-to-date on vaccinations. She is a Terrier/Hound mix around 3 years old and about 40 lbs. She is dog reactive and would benefit from training to help her overcome her fear of other dogs. She has not been around cats, so we're not sure how she would act. Reese has been around children ages 2-17 years and does fine with them. However, we probably would not recommend a home with small children because she does have a lot of energy. She tends to jump ... (Read More)up on people, which we are working on. She is crate and housetrained. Reese needs to go a home with a family who is active because she loves to run with her foster mom. She does well on a leash. She loves to play, but also loves to cuddle. Reese is a survivor and looking for her forever family. If you are that special family, please call Esther or Dallas at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-07-00543Summer (female)

Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Summer was running out of time at a local animal control. She had been one of the longest residents and needed to get out. Because she had been there so long and only had 1 or 2 people to interact with, she was very despondent. Her best volunteer friend would go take her out whenever she could but Summer was becoming depressed. Rainbow was asked if they could help, and luckily our satellite foster in Fredericksburg had just lost her foster to adoption so she very quickly volunteered to help Summer. Summer went to Fredericksburg on Sat., March 15 and has been having a blast ever since. She has been playing with a former Rainbow adoptee, ... (Read More)Oakley, who loves Summer already. She gets along with all people, dogs, and cats. She will begin learning the 'ropes' at her foster's and will begin training. She is a beauty who is full of love and is looking for some nice family to love her. If you want a real sweetheart who will return your love four times over, please call Esther at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net or Viveca at 540-207-1889 or e-mail vstone@hotmail.com. Summer is being fostered in Fredericksburg, VA. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

    Sunny was in a high-kill shelter in western Virginia. The rescue group in that area was desperately trying to get him out before his time was up.

He is good with children and other dogs and has met several cats while walking and didn't seem to care about them. He is just looking for his furever, loving home so he never has to come so close to losing his life. If you are that special family who is looking for a loving companion who wants to walk, just call Esther or Dallas at 757-583-8777 or e-mail rainbowanimalrescue@cox.net.
