Meet Our Dogs




Breed: American Bulldog

Sex: Male (Neutered)

Size: Medium
Vaccinations: Current

Microchipped: Yes
Age: 5 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.  Even though he has a lot of energy outside, he is a couch potato inside.  He would love nothing more than to curl up in your lap and watch soccer.  He would love a family who would treat him like a family member.   He has already had his dental and is ready to start his new life as a family member. Odie needs a fenced yard and abred experienced family 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]




Breed:  Foxhound mix   

Sex: neutered male

Size: 59 lbs
Vaccinations: Current

Age: 4 yrs.

Good in a home with children, and other dogs

Luther was picked up as a stray in one of the surrounding counties.  He was heart worm positive and had a mast cell tumor on his side.  He has been treated for the heart worms and the tumor was totally removed.  Our sweet energetic boy is now looking for his furever home.  Luther loves to play and go on walks.  He would love to be your TV buddy also.  He walks well on a leash and is learning to be a dog.  He needs more training but that should be a lifelong adventure.  If you are that special family who would love this boy furever, please contact Rainbow Rescue at 757-472-1583 or [email protected]



Breed: German Shepherd   

Sex: neutered male

Size: 66lbs

Age: 5 yr

Good in a home with older children, other calm dogs 

Merlin is losing his family under tragic circumstances. His dad is fighting a second bout of cancer and has other illnesses and his mom has a long term illness. They are seniors and living in a trailer with no yard for him to run in. He has to be chained when out. He is a very sweet, loving, smart boy. He rings a bell when he wants to go out and will close the door when he comes in. He gets along with other dogs, although larger dogs scare him. He just needs time to see that they won’t . He plays with the neighbor’s 3 Yorkies and is very gentle. He lays on the ground to be at their level. He is very friendly and loves to give kisses and snuggle. He is 5 yrs old and needs to weigh around 70lbs. He currently weighs 66lbs and is on the thin side. One of his ears is permanently folded over due to a previous hematoma but makes him the cutest little boy you have ever seen. Merlin would love a family who has a fenced yard (6ft privacy)for him to run in and would include him in family adventures. He would be good with older children as he would knock the little ones over. If you are that special family, please contact Rainbow Animal Rescue at 757-472-1583 or [email protected]





Breed: Walker hound mix   

Sex: neutered male

Size: 54lbs
Vaccinations: Current

Age: 3 yrs.

Good in a home with children, other dogs 


Ben is a goofy boy who loves to run and play.  He was a stray in one of the surrounding counties and was running out of time.  He is heart worm positive and will start his first injection on Nov. 10,2023.  Ben will definitely need a 6 ft privacy fence as he is like Tigger and bounces around the yard with the other dogs.   He is learning to sit and other cues and just be the dog he should be.  We are accepting applications now, but he will not be ready for his new home until Feb. 2024 when he completes his heart worm treatment.  Ben is definitely worth the wait as he is just the funniest, most lovable boy you could ever want.
