Jimmy Adoption

Our quiet little terrier mix, Jimmy, was adopted today!  Jimmy’s paperwork listed him at 2 – 3 years old, but the vet believes he’s actually older – around 8 years old. That didn’t deter his new mom and dad; they wanted him and didn’t care how old he might be. Mrs. Brooks says that, after teaching middle school, nothing scares her! 🙂 He was adopted by a retired couple so they’ll be home with him all the time to snuggle with. They plan to keep Jimmy’s name.

Another rescue from the Balch Springs shelter, Jimmy was fostered first by Lisa Schorfheide and then by Purnima and Nikhil Parakh.


Marlo Adoption

Sweet puppy Marlo was adopted today!  She was adopted by a young man with no pets or children, so she’ll get all the love and attention she deserves and she grows up.  Her new dad, Cody, wasn’t entirely sure if he would keep her name or change it; he’ll wait and see how things play out as they learn about each other.

Marlo, along with her brindled sister, Rosie, were rescued from the Balch Springs shelter and fostered by Brooke and Colton Stubblefield.

Maximus Adoption

Our sweet senior citizen, 16 years strong Maximus was adopted Wednesday.

Maximus came to RHS in 2016 because his human was no longer was able to give him the care he needed.

Thank you to Heather Scroggins and Elizabeth Wood and her two daughters for fostering sweet Maximus.

His new mom Andrea Harris doesn’t have any other fur babies so they will have fun hanging out together as he gets all of her attention and love!

Congratulations, Maximus and Andrea!!Â đŸ˜»

Bailey (fka Linsey) Slater

I wanted to pass on the sad news that we lost our sweet Bailey today (her RHS name was Linsey). I still had this original email from the first weekend we had her. She was such a great member of our family and is already missed tremendously.

Thank you for all you do to get these great dogs homes.

Sammy G

Fly free, Sammy G.  Your foster moms will miss your sweet face.  Go across the Bridge and join the man who loved you so much that he made sure you were cared for after he was gone.


Ryder Thomas

So, on this rainy dreary day Randy & I just said goodbye to our oldest little guy, Ryder. He was 18 years old & his life was an amazing journey, through it all he kept his fiesty attitude to the end, taking nothing from any dog, cat or human that got in his way. He was your typical Chihuahua, he loved his Mommy with all his might and knew that Daddy was always good for food & treats. We will all miss him immensely, but his time on earth had come to an end. We know he’s making his way to the Rainbow Bridge where he will meet up with his brothers & sisters. So, until we meet again my Ryder, Godspeed my little fellow you were an amazing companion. Mommy & Daddy will love you foreverÂ â€đŸ„€


Lotus Musselman

Sweet Lotus was rescued from a backyard breeding situation in Oklahoma, along with her sister, Luka, and nephew, Buster.  Lotus suffered from a variety of health issues but with love and attention from super-foster, Gladys Fung, she recovered and was deemed healthy enough to look for a fur-ever home.

Her new mom, Danielle, was waiting to meet her the first time Lotus came to MTP, and adopted her the following week.

Sadly, our darling girl’s kidneys started failing and she crossed the Rainbow Bridge on October 2.

RIP, Lotus.  Your time with us was far too brief and we will miss your signature “beagle howl” and sweet personality.

Love, your RHS family
