Rescue Me ID: 17-04-19-00507Maggie (female)

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Maggie. She is an absolutely gorgeous 11 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix. After the devastating loss of our family dog, We rescued Maggie from a kill shelter after she was already abandoned there twice at her young age. We knew nothing of her life (and nothing about RR's) till we adopted her a month ago and have tried hard to make her a member of our family, but our 3 kids ages 5 and under are having a very, very hard time adjusting. Maggie is large (probably around 70LBs) and has had 0 training. She is just a puppy and plays very rough, loves to jump, grab hold of and chew whatever you leave laying around, and and is going through a ... (Read More)mouthing puppy phase which although completely normal, does hurt, especially on the kids. Maggie is a very intelligent dog and Since with us, she has learned to Sit, take treats from your hands in a gentle manner, and is crate trained (never once had an accident inside her crate to be exact) but has not had freedom to be out of the crate while inside the house. Maggie needs someone willing to extensively train her, and love her, needs room to run and someone who will give her the stability she has lacked in life, If willing to take on this sweet girl, we know she could be a wonderful family dog in due time, but with 3 young kids, (as well as taking in foster children soon) The stress we are under is not fair for maggie or anyone else, and we would love for her to find the perfect place where she can just be herself and learn as she grows. Maggie is NOT in danger of being returned to the kill shelter, we just want her (and us) to be happy in our homes. We don't know how maggie would react to other pets, as we don't have any (other than chickens, which we don't let around her for obvious reasons) but would venture to say she would need some training before being acclimated to them. Experience with RR's is a huge plus. Maggie has had her yearly shots, and has a microchip. Please reach out to us if you are interested in more information about our sweet girl. We will be meeting with all interested parties at that time to see if it would be a suitable fit for yourselves and Maggie. Thank you! (Less)

    Buddy is a 3 1/2 years old male 67 lb. Boxer/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. He lived outside in a makeshift doghouse at a plant nursery since he was only a pup! His owner sold the nursery and left him behind for the new owners but he was luckily rescued and is now being fostered and trained. He is sweet, calm, friendly, and very smart boy!

He gets a little nervous meeting new people but quickly warms up and gives kisses and wants to be pet. He's learning how to be a 'pet' and 'family member'! $250 Adoption fee ...

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    URGENT!! Youra is an 8 year old Vizsla / ridgeback mix. She has been with our family since we rescued her from a shelter as a puppy. We love her but have moved to a home without a yard, and have decided she needs a yard and more exercise to be happy. It is also a higher-density area than her previous home, and she gets protective when strangers approach (delivery people, letter carriers, etc.). She has always been an only dog. She might be okay with another larger dog, but she will strain at the leash if she sees a smaller dog (because of her breed, she may think they are prey). She has not been around children, but she is very strong and ... (Read More)is probably too much for a child to handle. She is very affectionate with us, and will flop over for belly rubs when she wants attention. She is a little overweight and might need thyroid medication, but otherwise is in excellent health. Vet records are available since she was a puppy. She is up to date on vaccinations and has a microchip. We'll supply her bed, leashes, remaining food, etc. (Less)

    Are you a special person? I am Kennedy, a special needs pup and I am about 3 yrs young. I was on the list to be euthanized at a high kill shelter, but was saved by Paw Print Hearts! Right now I live in a boarding facility and I wish every day for a forever home or at least a foster home. They say I am sweet, but I have kennel stress and resource guarding.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rhodesian Ridgeback in Florida
    Rhodesian Ridgeback Dogs can make good pets in Florida if they match your IifestyIe. The Rhodesian Ridgeback is a fierce hunter that also makes a loyal family pet. Rhodesian Ridgebacks are very smart and obedient with firm training. Rhodesian Ridgebacks do not like to be teased by children. Ridgebacks need to be thoroughly socialized with other pets and humans, and may be dog aggressive. Ridgebacks can live in an apartment but these dogs are very energetic and need lots of daily exercise. This is an excellent dog to take jogging.
