Are you looking for a fun and active friend to join you on all of life's adventures? Meet Ryder, a handsome shepherd mix who came to TRD from Louisiana after Hurricane Harvey. Ryder is ready for any outing you have in mind. Whether you enjoy walks, runs, hikes, or trips to the beach, this guy is ready to go! Ryder has a lot of energy, but he is a sweet and impressionable guy who is primed and ready for training. He has responded very well so far to the patient instruction he has received in his foster home, and would love to learn more. Ryder has almost mastered his house training and is fully crate trained. Ryder is 1 year old as of October 2017, and weighs in at around 30 pounds. He is a handsome, slender, and sporty dude looking for someone who will enjoy some activity, and plenty of snuggle time when the action is done! This sweet guy is definitely a diamond in the "ruff" and has tons of potential to be a great companion. Ryder enjoys the company of other dogs and has a bit of a rough and tumble play style. If you would like to meet Ryder, please fill out an adoption application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.http://therescueddog.org/2015/dog-adoption-application/

Are you looking for a sweet and handsome buddy to keep you company? Meet Raffy, a Jack Russell Terrier/Dalmatian mix who is 6 to 7 months old as of October 2017. Raffy grew up as a puppy in a Louisiana shelter and came to TRD when we took in a group of dogs from Louisiana after Hurricane Harvey. His foster home here in San Diego is the first time he has lived in a house with a family. We are happy to say that he's catching on quickly to his new home life! Raffy is still learning what is appropriate to play within the house, but he has come a long way in a month. Raffy loves all toys, and enjoys playing fetch. He is HIGHLY food motivated and will do anything for food. Training Raffy will be easy and fun! He loves to play with other dogs his size and when the play gets a little too much for him, he bellies up to show submission. Raffy is crate trained and has almost completely mastered his house training. Raffy will make a great dog for an active family! If you would like to meet Raffy, please fill in an adoption application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.http://therescueddog.org/2015/dog-adoption-application/

  • Collie

Looking for a workout buddy who will keep you in shape through the holiday season with an added bonus of unlimited love and licks? Meet Dennis, a Border Collie mix who came to San Diego on the Wings of Rescue Flight all the way from Louisiana after Hurricane Harvey. Dennis is 1 year old as of October 2017 and is a full grown at about 45 pounds. Dennis is a kind-hearted and sweet pup who has connected very well with his foster dad in just a few short weeks. Dennis loves to hang out with his pack (other dogs in his foster home) and spends his time romping around in the backyard along with 2-3 mile long walks each day. Like any Border Collie, Dennis needs ample exercise and a proper daily routine to keep him busy. His forever family will need to continue with this routine. He has shown good promise with training--he understands "Sit" and has good name recall. He is completely house trained. Teaching him more tricks and commands will also be a good way to provide mental stimulation. Dennis loves to meet people, dogs, and kids--he may seem shy in the beginning but warms up soon enough. According to his foster dad, Dennis has been a good company when dining out. He calmly sits around his foster and loves to people watch! Dennis would make a wonderful addition to any active family that is looking to adopt a high energy dog. Dennis is a happy dog with a kind personality who will be a loyal companion to his family. If you would like to meet Dennis, please fill out an adoption application on the TRD website and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.http://therescueddog.org/2015/dog-adoption-application/

  • Border Collie, Labrador Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without small kids
Ed, at 3.5 years old and 35 lbs, is a high-energy, fun loving border collie mix. Ed joined The Rescued Dog back in 2014, as a 6 month old pup, after being rescued with his family from a high-kill-shelter. He was soon adopted, but unfortunately returned 2 years later when his family separated. Ed is finally ready to find his FOREVER home. Like most border collies, Ed has a high play-drive and is a focused retriever. His favorite three words are, "Find your ball!". The phrase will send Ed off on a scavenger hunt until he returns with a ball, or two to play with. Ed, being part border collie, would excel at agility, flyball, freestyle, or frisbee. As expected, Ed is smart as a whip and loves to be rewarded with toys after training. Ed loves learning new tricks and one of his favorite tricks is jumping from the floor into his handler's arms! While he has lots of energy, Ed likes to stick close to his person and returns with just a call of his name. He is good with people when properly introduced and gets along well with the other household dogs. Ed would prefer a quiet home (not too many people coming in and out) or maybe a home with land to work. Ed is a VERY high energy pup, he will do best in an active home, with frequent trips to fiesta island, dog parks, or with a running/hiking partner. Just as he needs physical exercise, Ed needs mental stimulation too! Ed will do best in a home with breed knowledge, or with someone looking for a sport dog. If you are looking for an active pup ready for a home of his own, please visit TRD's website and fill out an adoption application today to meet Ed! www.therescueddog.orghttp://therescueddog.org/2015/dog-adoption-application/
