Lucky Pup Dog Rescue

 Rio !  adopted 

We know our rescue dogs have been through a lot, so we are really committed to finding the very best forever home and happily ever for each one of them. 


That said, not every dog is a good match for every home.  Sometimes potential adopters may take it personally or are offended if we don't feel it's a good match for a specific dog.  Please know all of our placements are done with love & our dogs best interest at heart.  Since we always take our dogs back, should something not work out.  We just want to move forward with the best possible chance for success.  It is stressful for everyone when dogs are returned.

 

  * We required an adoption application, that includes information about your life style, other pets, current living situation. 


* We require a home visit to see where your new Lucky Pup will live.  We assess safety, fencing and the like. 


* We require an adoption fee, generally in the $300 range.  This doesn't really cover what we have invested to prepare a dog  for adoption. 


* If you would like to donate more to support our work, or give on a monthly basis - that is so appreciated!  Your donation is a charitable donation to a local non profit rescue. Unlike the "big box" animal organizations, who do literally nothing for shelter dogs, we rescue our dogs, care for them, cover all their medical expenses and find happily ever afters. 
Did you know the shelters we rescue from even don't spay or neuter our dogs or provide rabies shots ​or any medical care?? Many dogs actually get sick at the shelter and we handle those issues as well.  All of those expenses​ are covered by donations like yours.


Your donation helps us to continue to rescue and care for dogs.  We also use our funds to assist other small rescues and specific dogs in need.

Changing lives . . . one little dog at a time !

Meet Maverick

Maverick about 5 years old. We rescued him, not knowing what his issues were. There is no way to sugar coat it, he is a fear biter.  He had his tail amputated from a really bad infection, and still experiences some phantom pain, he barks at his tail and spins. He is wonderful with other dogs, and would do best in a home with other dogs. He is quite actually bonded to Ace, who is also available for adoption. Simple things like having his nails trimmed is a major project involving sedation.  On the plus side, once he trusts you he is very affectionate. Sweet as pie. He loves to go on walks. He is about 15 lbs and Neutered.
​Up to date on shots. Microchipped.

Meet Ace !

He is 5 years old.  He was born at the rescue when we rescued his mom.  He is a snuggle bug.  He has had two major surgeries on his right rear leg, one for his knee and one for his tendon. He is all healed and ready to go, he walks well, but still
​pulls a lot and is very excited (exciting) on his walks.
We have had challenges with his potty training over the years, He forgets sometimes.  He would love to have his very own home, we have so many other pups in the house, he sometimes becomes overwhelmed and doesn't get all the attention he deserves.  Oh... and he howls at fire trucks.  His best friend in the world is Maverick and he loves to groom and snuggle with him. They would make a great family addition together. Microchipped.Neutered
