#GivingTuesday2021 update
Oliver George – Your donations make all the difference!!
A Missouri shelter contacted RRRI about a young man needing to rehome his 9-month RR puppy. The shelter put us in touch with the owner and we were able to assist. The owner is a young person who was changing jobs and would only be home one day a week. The home environment, which included 16 cats, was not conducive to keeping such a young pup. The pup originally came from a BYB (Back Yard Breeder) “farm” in TX.
Oliver George suffered from bilateral ear infections at intake. The ear infections were treated and have resolved. However, it was then discovered that Oliver George is deaf, possibly from EOAD (Early Onset Adult Deafness). Further genetic testing is needed to confirm the origin of the deafness. Oliver George also was showing signs of Panosteitis (often referred to as growing pains in puppies, predominantly in large breed puppies). Oliver George was examined by an orthopedic veterinarian, and to reduce the symptoms of panosteitis, placed on anti-inflammatory meds, reduced exercise time and food formula changes.

Another #GivingTuesday2021 update to share - Things do come in small packages.
RRRI was contacted by a Rhode Island dog rescue group that focuses on small dogs. They had taken in a Ridgeback from an unfortunate situation and asked if we would help.
Tory was surrendered due to the family moving and being unable to take the dog with them. According to the family, Tory would spend her days tied up outdoors on concrete and then while in the home, in a room by herself. Tory went into foster care in a home that has previously adopted from RRRI.
We found that Tory got along with other dogs, and loves people and children. Tory does have high prey drive, and enjoys chasing squirrels, and birds. She is small for a ridgeback. The foster also has a senior Ridgeback and Tory has provided a new lease on life for the senior boy. And happily, the foster home has adopted Tory 🥰

Our next #GivingTuesday2021 story to share is about Sound of Music pups –
On May 8th, RRRI was contacted to take in nine purebred Rhodesian Ridgebacks, in the Great Plains Region, that were saved from a life destined for breeding. The dogs, Georg, Freidrich, Kurt, Maria, Leisl, Louisa, Brigitta, Marta & Gretl, ranged in age from 3.5 months to 5.5 years old. Upon intake RRRI was informed that 3 of the bitches could be pregnant.
The dogs were moved to a wonderful boarding facility, where they were able to decompress, be assessed for underlying medical needs, temperament issues and at the very least have basic medical needs addressed.
Upon medical assessment, all of the girls were ultrasound for possible pregnancy. It was confirmed that Maria was heavily pregnant, and whelped a litter of 6 puppies on May 23rd, aptly named “Six Peas In A Pod”. Maria had 3 girls and 3 boys, all ridged. The Foster’s grandchildren named the puppies: Pongo, Perdita, Pepper, Penny, Patch and Polly. Maria was the sweetest girl and an amazing mother!

Our first story to share.... Who doesn't love a warm puppy??
On October 29th, a RRRI volunteer was contacted by an owner who needed to surrender five – 12 wk old puppies due to a family emergency. Within 24 hrs RRRI had rallied the troops to pick up the puppies and found a wonderful foster home that was willing to foster all the puppies together. There was one Ridgeless Male, two Ridgeless Females and two Ridged Females.
All the puppies seemed well adjusted and very smart. Although they were also pretty destructive, it is no wonder breeders want to place their puppies by 8-10wks . . . the Bewitched Bunch kept problem solving and figured out how to get out of their enclosure . . . so the enclosure kept having to be reinforced. By the time they started going to their homes at 15wks, they were all eating in their crates (a few of them would race so fast because they were so excited). They were well on their way to being potty trained and slept in individual crates overnight without accidents.
The puppies all went to approved homes with applications already on file. One went to Northern California, one to Canada and three remained in the Pacific NW.

just got lambasted for posting this on another site - but wondering if RRR inc would consider opening up a MeWe account too to spread the word of rescue to as many people as possible. FB lost 9M accounts over the weekend. this is not a political post - just asking. i am not talking parler but MeWe. a yes or no would suffice - Still have the burns from the other group!
thinking about adopting a ridgeback male preferably, but either s*x if it is affordable older couple than norm- newly married, and wife has to agree as well as our budget lol i know her if she falls in love with the dog im a winner can you help me out ?

‼️URGENT‼️ Bronx, NY 10458 I NEED FOSTERING FROM now for about 3 months. I have to stay with my son until we find our own place. His building doesn't allow dogs. I love my dog and couldn't live without her. I don't want to lose her. At this time, Joy is in a PetSmart Pet hotel, but they are closing the pet hotel due to Covid-19. Please please help me! I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback 50 lbs 5 years old, Joy, that I need foster for. She is up-to-date on her shots, housebroken, and is spayed. Joy loves to run, loves to be loved on, and loves you right back. She is accustomed to laying on the couch and sleeping in bed with me. She is on medication. Joy takes a 40mg capsule of Prozac and 2 allergy tablets in a pill pocket at night. I will supply her food, bowls, toys, bed, medications, and anything else she needs. I will also take care of her vet costs. Joy loves other dogs. She loves little dogs and, once she used to them, cozies up to big dogs too. She chases cats.
Hi x Can anyone assist me with photos of a Rhodesian ridgeback & Labrador retriever (white) cross? Any information about this breed would be much appreciated.🐕 Thank you.😊
I have an aprox 1 year old male Ridgeback (mix) that I rescued from going to shelter. Thought I could keep him in my 10,000' fenced in area, but he jumps the fence. Ho is strong, very loyal, and protective - but not socialized. Letting him out to go potty is extremely stressful for me as he doesn't listen yet. Scares neighbors, etc. Can't afford a fence right now, even tho I love him and he loves me- I'm trying to re-home him and have him posted. My question is: what about the educator E Collar? Even tho I literally can not afford this right now- I've got to do something. Very stressful. At 1 year he's every bit of 70lbs and very strong. Was considering the Easy Walk leash etc but I'm still concerned about him knocking me down. Thanks for any advice.
this was posted 21 hrs ago. is there anyone in NC who could reach out?
My name is Chewbocka. My people call me Chewy for short. I do come to enzo, pookie, and snookums among other choice names when I have not been worked to my potential. I would be a great spokes dog for LL Bean. Got a bike? I'll run with you and keep up. How about hiking, I LOVE to hike Any type of sport were I can use my pray instinct is my favorite. I would be AWESOME at anything that includes JUMPING as I can jump up to 5 feet. I also love the long rides on my peoples boat. Nothing like the wind running through my fur. Do you have a cat? oooh I love cats and their food! My people just don't let me chase the cats and I can't figure out why, its just so fun, but I liten and dont go after them even if they are eating my food. Do you have another dog? Well I like other dogs but like humans there are some that are just annoying and we will have to see how that works out. I'm sad that I can not stay with my people any more. My best friend Chris had a stroke and can no longer take care of me the way I need to be cared for. I do not think I'll ever find another Chris but I know I will find another awesome human friend who loves to go go go as much as I do. Disclosure: Chewy is a rhodesian ridgeback mix from NC. WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT HIS OTHER MIX IS, So he could be ANYTHING!! HE does have a STRONG prey drive and NEED to be territorial. Hence the has to stay busy and Mentally stimulated. chewy also need to be trained and can be trained to not charge the door. His first thought is MY HOUSE GET AWAY! Please note that if I ( chris' wife ) did not now have to be a care giver for a 81 year old and my husband with our two kids and two jobs along with other animals who do not require this type of attention I would keep this loving high energy pup. Chewy is 3 as of Thanksgiving. He eats only the best food and is all up to date on shots. He is also fixed and house broken. If you would like to meet Chewy message me.
He had to say bye to his Rhodesian Ridgeback yesterday.
Ellie 🥰
