Meet Our Dogs


Breed: American Bulldog

Sex: Male (Neutered)

Size: Medium
Vaccinations: Current

Microchipped: Yes
Age: 4 yr

Good in a home with calm respectful children.  Loves to play with other dogs once a slow introduction is completed.

Even though Odie was abandoned by his previous family, he still loves people. He gets along with most other dogs after a proper introduction and children.  We don’t know about cats.  If you want a hiking or camping buddy, Odie is your guy. Playing fetch and tug are also favorite things that he likes. He would love a family who would treat him like a family member. He has a very special talent: his is bilingual- he speaks Spanish. His previous dad spoke Spanish to him. The sister spoke English…. so he is bilingual. He has already had his dental and is ready to start his new life as a family member. Odie needs a fenced yard and we are requiring his adoptive family to enroll him in a class to earn his CGC.   If you are interested, please contact Rainbow Rescue at 757-472-1583 or [email protected]


Buffy & Toby-bonded pair (courtesy post)



Size: medium

Age: 3 yr & 6yrs

Good in a home with  children.  Gets along with other dogs 

How can you not love those little faces!

Buffy is a 3 yr old American Pitbull terrier who weighs 63 lbs. Toby is a 6 yr old beagle mix who weighs 70lbs.  They are a bonded pair who were surrendered together.  Both are loving, inquisitive pups who would love to snuggle with you on the couch and watch TV.  They follow each other around and also love to play with other dogs.  They must be adopted together as they rely on each other and would be miserable apart.  If you would love to have duplicate snuggle bunnies, please consider giving these two adorable pups the home they deserve.  Contact Debra Griggs at 757-725-1705 or [email protected].



Breed: Walker Hound     

Sex: neutered male

Size: 67 lbs

Age: 4 yr

Good in a home with  children, other dogs and cats

Buddy was surrendered because his brother didn’t like him.  Rainbow was asked to help this sweet boy so he could get started on his heart worm treatment before it was too late.  He is one of the sweetest and most laid back hounds we have ever saved.  Buddy gets along with dogs, cats, and kids.  If you want a loving, chilled boy, that is Buddy.  Before he started his treatment, he loved walks and riding.  He just wants to be around his family.  April 22 is the date he is finally free to be a dog again after 3 months of crate rest while recovering from treatment. He is housetrained and would love a family who will treat him like a family member.  He will watch TV with you and loves to be massaged.  If you are that special family who would love this boy furever, please contact Rainbow Rescue at 757-472-1583 or [email protected]


OLIVIA- special needs

Breed:  Walker hound mix

Sex: female-spayed

Size: medium
Vaccinations: Current

Microchipped: Yes
Age: 5yr

Good in a home with older calm respectful children.  .  She really wants to be a lapdog

Our sweet Olivia was picked up by animal control as a stray. The veterinarians think that her leg was broken at some point and not treated and as it healed it twisted.  There is nothing that can be done but it doesn’t slow her down.  She weighs approx 47lb but should be approx 55lbs and gets along with kids and dogs- we’re not sure about cats as she hasn’t been introduced. She is a snuggle bug and learning to be in a house. She needs a loving family with respectful children as she is considered handicapped.  When she runs, she only runs on 3 legs but will use the deformed leg for balance when standing.   Olivia likes to walk and go for rides. Her new favorite things are toys that squeak and to snuggle with her foster dad and foster brother.  If you are that special family who will love her for who she is and give her the love and care she deserves, please contact Rainbow Rescue at 757-472-1583 or [email protected]
