Happy Tails! A Follow-up on the Ruff House Adoption Event

After a five-day adoption event at Desmond's previous home--Ruff House Rescue--all but ONE of the dogs have found placement, a foster home, or a forever home.

If I counted correctly on Facebook, 20 dogs were adopted between Wednesday and Sunday!

RHR had taken in a whole bunch of dogs they didn't really have room for--some of which were going to have to be brought back down South if they did not find homes and couldn't be placed either at RHR (due to space from other adoptions/fosters) or in the hands of another rescue.

There is now only one dog who needs placement in a home, foster or forever. His name is Achilles, and he's a sweetheart, but the shelter environment is hard on him and he's developed separation anxiety.

Here's his story in RHR's own words:
This is ever-so-precious Achilles. What an amazing dog he is. Achilles is a small guy, about 35 lbs. He loves loves loves people and he is great with cats too! Achilles is a people person and he really wants to be wherever you are. This very sad guy really needs our help. He was put in a kill shelter when his owner was evicted and then in foster where he would sometimes argue with the foster's other puppy, so he is with us in Oceanside at our kennel, but he is beyond miserable. Please please help us find this incredibly easy-going dog a home or foster. He is worthy of so much more than he is getting now. Please email me today at Hurry, Achilles is waiting!
If you know anyone who might be able to help him, please share. How can you resist that face??
