Our Dogs

There are typically between 25 and 35 dogs in our program at any given time – some will stay with us longer than others as they overcome their medical or behavioral challenges.  Click here to read about some of our dogs who came into our program with serious medical issues and learn how we helped them recover.

Dogs with a "Coming Soon" designation are not available but are currently in our program. The costs to run our rescue are well over $200,000 per year.  If you would consider sponsoring a dog, click here, or click on the "Sponsor Me" button on the dog's page.  If you are interested in meeting some of our available dogs, come to the next adoption event.

Referral Dogs (not in our program)

We provide listings for referral dogs as a service to the community, but we do not screen dogs to determine their suitability for adoption.  We make no representations regarding the accuracy of the information provided by the owners/fosters and we assume no responsibility for the condition or behavior of the dogs.

Oreo is a two- to three-year old beagle/walker hound mix.  He is neutered, 45 pounds and heartworm negative!  A wonderful angel found Oreo as a stray in Hertford, N.C. in November, 2014.  She took him into her home, brought him up-to-date on shots and even had his teeth cleaned professionally by a veterinarian!  He loves kids and is very cat and dog friendly.  His angel said that he is very loving, friendly, loves belly rubs, snuggling and his squeaky toys.  He does not climb or dig out of the fenced yard when outdoors.  Oreo's angel wanted to keep him, but the older, blind dog in the home is not happy with the new pack member.  If you are interested in Oreo, please contact Wendy Lowe by phone or email: 252-339-0295 or  wendylowe802@gmail.com

Tundra is an adult male mix who was rescued after a life of neglect and malnourishment.  At the time of his rescue, he was chained to the side of the house and could not reach shelter.  His back end is paralyzed, likely from being hit by a car.  Despite that, he has no problem getting around. He loves people and any attention you can give him!

Aside from the paralyzed legs, Tundra is very normal and loves all the things other dogs love!  He can play fetch with the ball and loves to chew on bones and toys.  He greets you when you get home, naps at your feet and sleeps quietly through the night.  Tundra is starting to use a wheelchair to take walks. Everything is very new to him and he gets more comfortable each day.  Check out Tundra's video!

If Tundra might be a fit for your home, please contact trace.hoekstra@ragom.org .

NOTE: This is a courtesy post for Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota (RAGOM).  Tundra does not live in N.C., but for the right home, he can move in with you!
