Buster: is available for adoption
Buster was nearly hit running on a dark rural road in Brooksville. He was severely emaciated,  full of worms, a GI parasite and anemic, but thankfully heartworm negative. He was reported found at the local shelter and stayed with his foster parents.  Owners never claimed him.
Buster is a GORGEOUS Brindle Mountain Cur approximately 2 yrs.old he is neutered, tagged, vaccinated and microchipped. He knows sit, shake and down, fosters are working on leash manners. He has literally grown from a skinny scared dog to a handsome confident boy in 2 weeks!
He has amazed us, he had a will to live and proved it. He has been getting along with the dogs we have socialized him with, although Buster will probably do best in a home with female dog buddies or a submissive male. As he is confident.
If you are interested please contact ARF’N.
Application,  adoption fee,  meet and greets, landlord approvals, home checks and vet references a must.

 

 

                                   
                                                                    

 

Tally

Tally

is intelligent, energetic, loyal and loving. She warms up well to other dogs after slow introductions, especially those that don’t get in her face. She is house trained and crate trained, and is respectful of cats as she gets along well with her foster’s cat. She does well with adults and children. When meeting someone new she barks and pulls on her lead but then becomes submissive as the new person approaches to meet her. She takes treats gently. Tally is very energetic; she would do well with an active family. She is also VERY agile and can easily jump a four foot fence. Because of this interested adopters should have a six foot fence so that Tally can safely get her “zoomies” out. Tally craves love and attention. She loves spending her days in the home office with her foster dad (especially when he’s not distracted by his day job). She is up to date on vaccines, spayed and microchipped. She is looking for a home office to call her own! Got room in your organization for this sweetheart?TallyTally

Oscar 

Oscar 2

Oscar is a handsome 2 year-old male Plott Hound mix weighing 65 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. He is good with other dogs, cats and respectful children. He is crate trained but still has the occasional accident in the house, especially if his human isn’t paying attention. He very much enjoys running around the yard with the other dogs, playing fetch with just about anything you could toss across the yard and snuggling in bed at night. He knows Sit, Down and Wait commands very well and is highly treat motivated. Outside of his home surroundings Oscar is anxious and warms up to new people and things very slowly. In his surrounding he’s just the opposite…outgoing, friendly and meets new people quickly. Oscar is a true homebody. If you’ve got an empty spot on your couch,  something for him to fetch, and a little patience, Oscar may very well be the dog for you!

Pepper

is an approximately 3-year-old Female Lab / American Bulldog mix who weighs-in at just over 50 lbs. She was surrendered to the rescue by a homeless veteran who had been evicted from his home after his friend passed away. The owner was living on a covered front porch at a neighbor’s house when volunteers met him. He had two dogs, one of which was picked up by another rescue. In order to get both the owner and his second dog off the streets, ARFN accepted Pepper into the rescue just before Tropical Storm Alberto, passed through the area. She is a very playful, affectionate, and attention-seeking dog. She adores belly rubs and loves to give kisses! She appears to be house trained and crate trained. She takes treats very gently and allows toys to be taken from her mouth. She is good with other well-mannered dogs after introductions. She prefers NOT to be in a home where there are cats. She gets along well with adults and children, however, she is not recommended for homes with small children as this girl has a lot of energy! Pepper knows the sit command. She could benefit from obedience training and lead work as she pulls when being walked. She is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. She has a wonderful temperament and is a fantastic dog…definitely worth her salt! If you’d like to meet her please visit arfn.org and complete an online adoption application. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Princess

 

7 year-young Cur-mix
 who weighs approximately 40 lbs. She transferred into rescue from Animal Control where she was surrendered as part of an overwhelmed caregiver investigation. She has lived in a kennel facility the majority of her life; the last 10 months of which confined to a run inside an industrial building /converted office space with limited access  to a yard for walking, playing or exercise.  Please Follow this link for the News Article for the more recent history of Princess   Princess Rescue/surrender
 
Princess is an incredibly sweet and affectionate dog. She’s energetic, agile, and is learning to play with toys. When she receives attention she almost immediately rolls over on her back as if to invite a hearty belly rub. She is house trained and crate trained, takes treats gently…even the tiniest of treats…and knows basic obedience commands including Sit and Down. She and her foster continue to work on Stay, Come and Wait. She will need refreshers in walking on lead as she tends to pull a bit (which decreases the longer she walks). 
 
Princess is good with adults and children, but may be better suited for older children as she gets a bit bouncy when she’s excited. She has exhibited tenancies to be dog selective, especially toward dogs larger than she is. Slow, iterative introductions will be key for this sweetheart.
 
Princess is spayed, microchipped and up to date on all vaccinations. If you’re looking to bring a little royalty into your home, Princess may be the ideal selection. She’ll leap into your heart in no time!        RESCUES IN ACTION MAY 25th 2019
