Be sure to read my FULL BIO all the way down to my vetting and how to apply. Not all sites will show the full bio, so if needed please go to www.rockersrescue.org and click on adoptable pets to be sure you are reading all details. The animals have multiple pictures and usually a video to view. You must apply and have an approved application before we can schedule a private meet. We are located around Shreveport, Louisiana and generally meet at PetSmart Shreveport, or Hollywood Feed Shreveport, or for dogs we can also meet at the adopters home.
Luna Rae- Female. 2.5 yrs old. Around 40lbs.
Luna Rae's fur is medium with thick fur along back to curled tail. Has Eskimo dog in her dna which explains her tail shape, thick fur, and medium size.
This is a SWEET girl that loves her humans big. She is a great home protector as she is weary of new people. She loves to snuggle by you or on your lap. She wants to sleep in bed but has to be kenneled at night in foster home. Every morning though when she is let out of her kennel, she runs to the bedrooms to go greet the humans still in bed! It's so cute. She squirms all over them and next to them and goes belly up for lovins. If you are on the couch she will often lay next to you and sometimes even climb into your lap to kiss you too. If you are standing she will often lightly stand up to hug you and give kisses.
Luna is in a foster home with mutliple other animals. She does fine but has to constantly be watched as she is more dominant and gets jealous for attention. It would be easiest if she could find a home with no other pets where she can be the center of attention like she wants to be.
She loves to play with toys and has some good energy. Fenced yard needed for when outside. Her mind can get in "go" mode so plenty of exercise or stimulation such as toys and chew sticks are great. Sometimes she does chase light reflections on the ceiling...just being honest here, haha! I know her forever home won't mind it or can work with her to de-sensitize her to it. She is very treat motivated.
History: Luna came to us a 5 month old puppy. Her owner was leaving for the military. We ran into them outside a kill shelter they were trying to surrender her to, and we agreed to take her in. She was adopted and returned 1.5yrs later right at 2 yrs old. She was not getting along with the other dog.
Training : Kennel trained. House trained. Sleeps in kennel but would like to sleep in bed like she did in former home. Upon her return, she did training with Cody at Red Rover to help her get over some fears she had. She was very scared of men when she came back to us. She would bark in fear. She did excellent with training and upon her return to us she was in my husbands lap within minutes. She is told to "sit" if ever nervous meeting someone new. We are very cautious with this as she is still getting over her fears. We tell them to give her space and time and she will approach them when she's ready. We are bringing her in public often to practice. Her new owner will receive 3 free training sessions with Cody if they would like, to go over her commands. She knows phrases such as "sit, lay, here, place, kennel". She is very good at sit and we also call kennel her "room." It is important her new owner understand she can be scared of new people and those situations should be handled appropriately or avoided. Continued training and working with her should help this more and more.
I have been praying Luna will find her home where she will thrive and be so happy giving all of her love. If you think you may be this caring home for Luna Rae, we look forward to your application. She is a sweet girl that really just needs her perfect spot to be loved.
Vetting: Utd on all vaccines. Heartworm negative. Proheart 6 for heartworm prevention. Bravecto (3 months) for flea/tick prevention. All vaccinations. Negative fecal. Spayed. Microchipped with lifetime registry the rescue has already paid for.
Available for foster to adopt program as well. We do take our babies back if it doesn't work out. The foster to adopt program allows you to do a trial run to see if the animal is a great match for your home.
About Applying to Adopt: Should you meet and decide to adopt, there is an $50 adoption donation for approved applications. Our rescue spends a lot more than this fee on each life, but it is a way to help give back some to go towards the next life we help. We are a 501c3 non profit that is 100% volunteer run. We function solely on donations from kind people. If you wish to donate more or continue following/supporting us over time, we would appreciate your continued love to help our organization save lives.
Adoption Process Summary: You apply. We will email or call if we have any questions. Upon app approval, we would schedule a day we all meet at PetSmart Shreveport or Hollywood Feed Shreveport or at your home. At that meet we would all make sure that you feel the pet is a good match for your home. If so, we run the adoption. You fill out our contract, pay your donation fee, and receive your folder with their medical records. It helps to bring a leash to this appointment because your pet will go home with you that day if we all feel it is a great match. Woohoo! We take your adoption picture and you head off with your new furry friend! We can often provide adoption coupons too.
