My Story

Date into Rescue: 11/1/2022

Reason for being in rescue: owner release

Special Needs: Rex is neutered, up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative. On 12/21/22 Rex had a dental polishing. Our vet noted that he has periodontal disease and will need regular dentals. Rex also has chronic bilateral purulent conjunctivitis. He is currently on ophthalmic ointment twice a day in his right eye.

What kind of home would be best for me: Rex loves people and can do well with low to medium energy fur siblings. In fact, he did ask for his new family to have a mature fun fur sibling he could follow and mimic how to be a fun house dog himself. He has the potential to do well in a family setting with children who'll give him his space when he needs it. He could also do well with cats as long as he is taught to give the cats space when they need it. Rex is learning what its like to be a dog who can see and play and eat. He now enjoys having a crate he can go into when he wants to be quiet and take a nap and would appreciate one in his new home. 

Rex's ideal home is with humans home more than they are away (active retirees, work from home, etc.). He will benefit for another mature dog in the home to learn from. IF you have cats, you will have to teach Rex to respect their boundaries. IF you have children, then should be over 10, have grown up with dogs, and know how to respect boundaries. Rex has never lived with children or cats.

What is my personality like: Rex was brought to our farm after he was pick up by animal control who was called to his home because Rex and his brother were found with their owner who had passed away. This boy was found as an incredibly emaciated matted mess. He literally went from rags to living his best life right now. He has it pretty good with us but Rex has asked us to help him find a new home. 

Rex is extremely curious and wants all the attention. He has to smell everything, he likes to explore his surrounding with his nose and mouth. Some things, such as floor and ground textures, food and clothing has to be investigated with a sniff, a lick or a chew. He is super friendly and wants to be as close to his people that he trusts as possible. He's ok if you have to leave him for a bit, but he prays that you'll return. Rex is eager to please and wants to do what you ask of him but he just asks you show him and go slow with him.

Rex was never trained how to walk properly on a leash and is still learning that pulling will not take the leash off. He would benefit having parents who'll continue his training and show him how to live in a home where his health and well being is a priority. In return Rex will show his family how much he loves them for taking great care of him and putting his needs on the top of the list. Rex does not know yet any cues from people. His caregivers have spent most of their time getting him and his brother to a healthy weight and just being around people who move and talk. We can only imagine the life he had and the life he deserves. 

How do I act when I first meet new people: Rex is super friendly and wants to know everyone and what they're doing. He wants to give lots of hugs and let you know how happy he is to see you and meet you. While we try not to allow the dogs to jump but you simply can not pass up and hug and kiss from the Rex Man!

Tips and Tidbits: Rex is estimated at 6 years old. We celebrate his birthday as 12/1/2016.

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
