Rescue Me ID: 16-07-29-00360Truckstop (male)

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    There was a homeless man who drowned here in okc two weeks ago & he had a dog. I know this because I saw a man sleeping with a dog under an overpass. I got dog food, water, & food for the man. When I took the items to the man, he told me about his friend who drowned & his friend asked him that if anything ever happened to him, to please take care of his dog (I Googled his story & yes, it's true - the drowning was all over the news). The man said he was barely able to get food for himself, much less the dog & he thanked me. I told him that I would do my best to bring food for him & the dog whenever I can afford it (which is hard for me to do ... (Read More)on a single income). The dog seemed sad & was very skinny. I asked him that if I found a home for the dog, would he be willing to let the dog go. He said yes. After a few days, the man (Henry) had grown attached to the dog (Truckstop) & wasn't willing to surrender him so I made arrangements with a rescue to take Henry to get Truckstop vetted. On Tuesday 7/26, Truckstop was vetted. The man from the rescue gave Henry his phone number & told him that if anything happened to Truckstop, to call him (Henry had told the rescue that the police had been harassing him & threatening to arrest him & take dog because he was sleeping under the overpass when it was raining the night before). The man from the rescue called me late last night to tell me that Henry had called him & said he was arrested on Wednesday (7/27 - the day after Truckstop was vetted) & that Truckstop is in the pound. I'm trying to look at this as a blessing, because now that means that I can get Truckstop out of the pound & into a home. I am fine with paying to get him out, I just don't have a place to take Truckstop. The man with the rescue is full & cannot take him. I need all the help I can get. Truckstop is a Rhodesian Ridgeback (could be mix), around 18 months old, & in good health other than not being fed well. For the last 2 weeks, I've been taking dog food to Henry every day. If anyone can help, I would be so grateful & will make a donation to your rescue & will continue to do so. I'm hoping that I can find a loving home for Truckstop. I wish I could take the Truckstop in myself, but I live in an apartment with my cat. Please help. I'm willing to pick up Truckstop & transport him to anyone who will help him. Thank you. (Less)

Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Butch is a sweet boy and is good at protecting the yard. He does ok with most animals but since he is a protector he doesn't do well with dominate animals. I just got out of an abusive relationship and can't keep him.

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