Meet Dandelion

Close your eyes, make a wish, and blow - I’m DANDELION! And I bet I am your wish come true! Though I am named after a weed, I am a beautiful 10 year old, 10 pound shitzu! And like the dandelion, I am a symbol of hope, growth, and healing. Speaking of healing, I entered foster care with a few health issues: I am partially blind and deaf, and I’m missing a few teeth. And I will need my bloodwork rechecked in 6 months due to an elevated BUN level. But I am strong, spunky, and independent! I am house trained, and though I am crate trained I rarely need to go in mine. I am good on a leash for short, meandering walks that resemble dandelion seeds blowing in the wind. I get along with kids and the dogs in my foster home, big and small, and though I haven’t been cat tested, my foster mom thinks I’d do just fine with them, too! My favorite ”activity” is napping! Like my namesake, I would thrive in just about any home, but would especially love to be a companion dog to a senior because I am as easy as a breeze! So go ahead and pick this DANDELION!

As a senior, my adoption fee is $75 and includes my spay/neuter, vaccinations, wellness exam, heartworm test, and microchip!

*Remember, dogs are pack animals. Because of this, Rescue One does not adopt to outdoor-only homes. Pets are family and are not disposable. Please make sure that you are 100% committed to a pet before considering adding one to your home.

We are a foster-based organization, and we need more fosters to help us save more animals! If you’re interested in saving lives just like the one you’re reading about, fill out a foster app here. To foster dogs:
