Rhonda is Pet of the Week!

Waiting for a forever home since August 28, 2017

Tall, stately, brindle coated Terrier mix, Rhonda is a dog who has endured may twists and turns on the road to a secure, loving forever home. Including a very quick return after being adopted before Thanksgiving.

Dogs need time to blend into a new family setting, rarely is this effected in a few short days.  Our adoption counselors know what dogs need and we take the leap of faith this will be followed. 

In Rhonda’s case, while she does seem to feel companionable around dogs of similar size, smaller creatures trigger her interest in a less convivial way.

Rhonda arrived via our Safe Harbor program. She’s been calling our shelter home since the Summer.

Well now the weather is cold, snow is in the air, winter has arrived, and she is still reeling from the return to us wondering what happened.

Once more into the breach…  to truly flourish, being the only pet would be the best possible placementshe, she should be the only dog in the home, no cats or small creatures. A home where she can finally unpack her suitcase of sorrow and rejection is Rhonda’s wish at Christmastime.  

She is a lovely dog, a big girl, still waiting for that committed adoptive home, and one that will manage her foibles appropriately.

We have not given up hope and neither should she!
