Available For Adoption

Mabel (OK)
Mabel came to Ratbone Rescues after her owner passed away. She just turned 7 years old on February 6th, and weighs between 15 and 20 pounds. Her home for the last 5 months has been a crate, so she is not fond of them. Mable is a calm dog, does not jump at noises, loves to be petted and to have her belly rubbed. Mable does not appear to be a lap dog; when you stop petting her she moves to her own chair. She is house trained if kept on a schedule, and barks very little. Mable sleeps by herself, curled up in the rocker (her choice), loves to go for walks in the park, and to chase around the yard. Mabel does not play with toys. She is playful with the neighbor’s dog and the young children (3 & 4 year olds). Mable Just Wants Someone To Love!!! For access to her photo album please go to

Sawyer (NY)Sawyer came from a shelter in Alabama, along with his brother (Sammy). He weighs about 9 pounds, but definitely will put on another 2-3 pounds, as he was very thin. He was estimated to be about 1 to 2 years old, but his puppy-like behavior makes him seem more like just 1 year old. Sawyer is a gorgeous sable and white. He fit right in with his 2 new foster brothers and seems to get a long with all dogs, kids (he lives with 4 right now) and adults. Sawyer likes to follow his fostermom around like a shadow wherever she goes! He is almost fully house-trained, with only an occasional accident if you aren't watching. Sawyer loves to play and sleeps in his crate at night. He is working on manners, and is picking things up every day. Sawyer is a very loving, sweet boy who is just looking for a place to call home.
