    Update from April 6, 2018!

    Rayna is extremely smart and eager to learn. She already knows how to sit, lay down, leave it, stay, shake a paw & twirl. She should be fine with bigger friendly dogs after proper intros. Right now I wouldn’t recommend she go into a home with small dogs or cats. She loves all types of people. She loves kids but she is your wiggly bully breed and sometimes doesn’t know her own strength. She also LOVES toys, playing fetch & tug. Rayna is working on her leash skills, as she does get pretty excited when she sees other dogs, but she is getting better with every walk.


    Would ya just look at this cute mug! Meet Rayna! She is the sweetest pup, but watch out for that tail, she is a wagger!

    Miss Rayna came into AARCS’ care early December when we received a call about a starving dog. The rescue crew jumped into action and found this sweet girl very emaciated with a big bloated belly — assuming parasites at the time due to poor nutrition. She came immediately to their call and sniffed every inch of them in case they had any food handy…The poor girl was just so hungry. Once Rayna was loaded up in the cab of the truck, she gave her rescuers big sloppy kisses the whole way to AARCS’ Safe Haven!

    After arriving at our shelter, Rayna was examined by our medical team as it was obvious she was not in great shape and potentially had an underlying medical condition requiring treatment… Turns out her big bloated belly was not what we initially thought — Rayna was full of puppies! She herself would have struggled to survive out there on her own let alone with a litter of puppies to boot!

    Rayna has now raised her 6 little babies and is ready for a family of her own! She is extremely smart and ready to learn. She already knows how to Sit, Lay Down, Shake both paws, Leave it, Twirl & Stay. She loves all types of people and loves giving kisses and training with the 3 & 5-year-old girls in her current foster home. She also LOVES toys, and enjoys a good game of fetch or tug of war. Right now the world is a little exciting for Rayna, so she is looking for a family that will be patient with teaching her all about the world outside and inside of a house. With some love and training, this sweet girl will make an amazing family member.
