Latest Pet Connection


My name is Rye, but I have a lot of nicknames, Rye-bread, Rye-guy, Ryce-aroni, you name it and I’ll probably come running! I’m a sweet older gentleman looking for a great home to spoil me in my golden years. I’ve slowed down a little bit, but I’m still pretty young at heart! I love going for walks, and keeping myself busy! I get along well with dogs and cats, and I think I’ve been best friends with every human I’ve ever met, so won’t you come and meet me, maybe give me another nickname?


Phoebe is a great little dog and very easy to have around the house. She does fine with her foster home’s 3 dogs and doesn’t seem interested in the cats. She is not a barker and sheds very little, if at all. Like most of us, she has a few quirks. She loves to be cuddly and sleep on the bed with her humans – sometimes. She likes to be pet and scratched behind the ears – sometimes. It seems she has enough Papillion in her to have the big, butterfly ears the breed is known for and enough Chihuahua in her to be bossy 🙂

Phoebe is left uncrated in the house when her foster family is away. Before coming to rescue, she had not worn a collar or walked on a leash so she needs a little work on that. The ideal home for Phoebe is a less active home with no small children, and she would do fine as an only dog. It will take time for her to warm up to someone new, so a little patience will be required.

Please consider this sweet girl to add to your family!

Phoebe is a 5 year old Dachshund – Papillon Mix.
