PAC-MAN was found wondering through
a flowerbed, just sniffing about and checking everything out. Poor
ol’ Pac-Man was very thin and covered with ticks and fleas when
his rescuers discovered this curious canine horticulturist wondering
about the garden, but thanks to some patient care and attention, and
oodles of love, Pac-Man has begun to gain weight and is tick and flea
free. He still has a little ways to go, but with the right loving and
caring family Pac-Man will soon be the picture of perfect health.
Pac-Man is a young male Hound Rhodesian Ridgeback
mix, with just a little too much energy for the other two dogs in his
Pac-Man is running the other dogs in his foster home
ragged. They don’t have the energy to keep up. Plus, three dogs
is a lot to have. His canine friends run about with Pac-Man until they
fall down from exhaustion. He doesn’t seem to know what "NO" means
yet. He thinks it means "keep doing what your doing"!!!
Pac-Man needs a fenced in yard so that he can run.
He has a lot of energy that needs to be worked off before night time
so that everyone can sleep soundly!! He will do best as an indoor/outdoor
dog, and probably with a family that doesn’t have small children,
because he likes to jump and chew. He is a puppy so this is natural.
He loves to be given a belly rub!! He will fall over
if your hand gets anywhere near his belly. He also likes to eat!! It
doesn’t matter what it is; If it resembles food it is going into
his mouth. Since Pac-Man has been with his foster family, he doesn’t
like to get too far away from people.
He is overflowing with energy!! He is
kept in a crate for a good portion of the day so that he can conserve
his energy and gain some weight. By the afternoon, he is about to explode!!!
He keeps the other dogs in his home busy!!!
He was given his Puppy shots on 08/29/08
by Springhill Spay & Neuter Clinic, and will be getting all of
his booster shots. When he has gained enough weight, he will be altered.
He will not be adopted intact.
His foster family is working on crate
training, leash training, and house training. Crate and house training
have been going really well. He doesn’t seem to be food aggressive,
but he sure does eat like it may be his last meal. Pac-Man needs a
forever home. The vet said that August 27th, 2008 he is about 3 months
old. He is current on his shots and will be neutered as soon as he
puts on enough weight. Spots on his ears from the ticks should clear
up soon. He is great with other dogs, but has tons of energy. He has
not been around children but would probably do great if they can handle
all the excitement!! He seems to be house trained as he lets his foster
family know when he needs to go out. Pac-Man and his fosters are working
on his crate training.

You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or
complete an online
adoption application by clicking the orange colored text links
at the top or bottom of this page.
The adoption fee is $125 and covers
all necessary vet care to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions),
rabies, microchipping and registration, all vaccinations (including
all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella), grooming,
Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate
and preventative, collar and 50% of basic training classes.
All of our
young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing
the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for
all involved without making a final commitment. Puppies are not available
to go on home visits. All of our rescues are in private homes and not
available to be visited outside of showing times. All of our foster
homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most
are also housetrained. None of our foster homes have cats, so we can
only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats.
We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found. We rely solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 Humane Society. The only support we receive is from donations from the general public.
Thank you for your interest in rescue and in saving the life of a dog. Every day in the United States, 11,000 dogs die.
