Adoptable Dog Of The Week – Rita
Young at heart (and at play), Rita, our Adoptable Dog of the Week, doesn’t let anything slow her down! Hailing from Houston, Texas, she’s a sprightly 6-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback and Shepherd mix who loves everyone she meets. Rita is spayed, up to date on vaccines, good with dogs, cats and kids, and is micro-chipped.
Meet Rita, or Rita Bonita as I like to be called! A while back, Scout’s Honor Rescue was nice enough to take me and my little brother into their program when my owner had to go into hospice care. I was sad to lose my owner, but felt safe with Scout’s Honor and knew they would take good care of me and my brother. Needless to say, I was pretty nervous when I first came into the program, but I’ve adjusted fabulously to my new life and my little brother already found his forever home. Now it’s my turn.
But since this is a personal ad of sorts, let me tell you a little more about myself. Scout’s billed me as a “senior girl” but a lady never really divulges her true age right? Since age is not a number but rather a state of mind. Some of my friends include young adult dogs and young people AND I have totally keep up with them, no problem! Don’t get me wrong I LOVE my sleep, but unlike my feline friends I have one life to live and I plan on living it to the fullest. I love to go to the dog park and am fast friends with everyone I meet! I must say I’m just an all-around great girl!
Concerning my house manners, I’m totally house trained, YAY (who’s not, seriously??) : ) I get along with other dogs but would REALLY like a canine brother or sister that likes to play, but can be low-key like me and cuddle at the appropriate hours. I’m past that point in my life where I like to be around dogs that are just bonkers. I really like sitting on the couch and watching football with anyone who will let me. So if you like to snuggle, all I can say is PINCH ME I’m DREAMING : ) because I love to snuggle too. Oh, and I love those short people they call kiddos. Love to curl up on the bed or sofa with them and snooze – I use them as pillows.
Other likes include doggie treats, rawhides, and dog toys! Which leads me back to the first point, that age is a state of mind and I’m really a puppy at heart although I was initially billed as a senior dog. Ok, since you probably must want to know, I’m about 6-7 years old, in great health and consider myself to be a gorgeous golden Shepherd Mix. I also need to let you know that I’m spayed, up to date on my vaccines and micro-chipped, So I am ready to go!
So if you want a super cool, sweet, forever loyal, football loving pooch, I’m your girl! Please consider opening your home to me temporarily while I wait on my forever home! I sure don’t care for boarding much, I’d much rather be in a home!
