    CURRENTLY BOARDING IN RENO NV - Shani came to Rescue in August 2013 by the family that had raised her since she was 8 to 10 weeks old. Upon her surrender, she was immediately transported to her new home in Reno, NV. Shani was in good health at this time, up to date on shots, a perfect 76 lbs, but was in need of a dental cleaning. March 2014 - The adopters wanted to return Shani to Rescue saying she was not house broken. Shani had begun urinating in the house. When asked if they had taken her to the vet to determine if there was a health issue, the answer was no. When asked if they had gotten her dental done, no. When asked why they ... (Read More)were just now contacting Rescue about the problem, there was no good explanation given. Rescue immediately forwarded surrender paperwork for completion and explained that the adopters would have to transport Shani back from Reno to Vegas where Rescue would then get Shani the vet care she needed. Ultimately, Rescue decided to go ahead and pull Shani from the adopters and get her to a vet in Reno to determine her health and dental status. Upon being checked by the vet, Shani was found to be in excellent health, albeit now 10 lbs overweight, and her dental issue had severely degraded. It was found that 12 teeth were missing (no records were ever provided indicating 12 missing teeth) 14 more were in infected and needed to be removed. Hard to imagine how much discomfort this poor girl must have been from her dental issues. It has also been found that the 8 months that Shani lived with the adopters that there was extreme tension in the home. Between her dental issues and the tension she has lived with, it would certainly explain why the urinating in the house had begun. Through all this, Shani has remained a really sweet girl and loves everyone she meets. Everyone at the vet's office where she is being boarded just loves her. Shani has been around kids, both in her original home and in the adopter's home, she has been around other dogs in both places as well. She has basic obedience skills and would be terrific as an obedience and rally dog or just someone's dog to love! She needs someone to love her, someone who won't throw her away for something that, in the grand scheme of things, is minor and can be so workable with a little time and attention. UPDATE: SINCE SHANI'S DENTAL HAS BEEN TAKEN CARE AND SHE IS BEING LOVED AND CARED OR BY THE STAFF AT THE VETS'S OFFICE, THE PROBLEM BEHAVIORS SEEM TO BE RESOLVED. TIME AND ATTENTION IN A NEW HOME WILL MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD TO THIS GIRL. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rhodesian Ridgeback in Nevada
    Rhodesian Ridgeback Dogs can make good pets in Nevada 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.
