Meet Our Dogs


Breed: Collie Mix
Sex: Male (Neutered)
Size: Medium
Vaccinations: Current, special needs
Microchipped: Yes
Age: 3 yr

Good in a home with other dogs and calm respectful children.

Austin was only a year old when he was found in the country. He is thought to be semi-feral but he is learning to love his foster.

A farm lady called the local animal control to come get him before he starved to death. She would throw cow parts for him to eat to try to keep him alive. He had to be trapped by animal control because he was so afraid. He is doing well in his foster’s home and loves their other dogs. He needs a home with another dog and a 6ft privacy fence to prevent any chance of escape. Austin will come around but will need a family who is experienced with semi-ferals, patient and will give him the time he needs to figure out that people aren’t so bad. If you are that special family, please consider giving him the loving, permanent home that he deserves.


Breed: Mountain Feist
Sex: Male Neutered

Size: small
Vaccinations: Current,
age: 6 yr
Microchipped: Yes

Good in a home with most other calm dogs and seems to do well with cats
No small children, only older calm respectful children

Ferb spent the last 2-3 years on a screened in porch in the country because he was considered a tripping hazard to his mom who had dementia.  He had food thrown in a frying pan and ate randomly which probably explains his weight.  He is a bit chunky and is on a diet.  Rainbow received a call to see if we had room because his mom had died and the family didn’t want him.  He had to be out of the house by Oct 2021 or he was going to the pound.  If you are looking for a ball crazy dog, Ferb is your boy.  He loves to play.  Being a Feist, he does have a high prey drive and can’t be in a house with cats or other small critters.  No small children as they might frighten him.  We are teaching him some cues as the only thing he knows is sit, but that’s a good start.  He walks well on a leash and loves to walk.  As an added bonus, he comes with his framed pedigree.   If you are that special family who would like a little cuddle bug, please contact Rainbow Rescue at 757-472-1583 or [email protected]


Breed: Hound Mix
Sex: Male (Neutered)
Size: Medium
Vaccinations: Current,
Microchipped: Yes
Age: 6yr
Weight: 63 lbs

Good in a home with other dogs with slow introduction and children.

Ollie was picked up as a stray in the surrounding countryside. It appears that he had been a stray for a while as he was thin and had ear infections and a dull coat. As is the case with these poor hounds, he is heart worm positive and will start the injections at the end of April. Rainbow is super cautious with our heart worm postive dogs so he will be ready to go to his furever home in July. He is good with other calm dogs but needs more time with an energetic dog. When he was in animal control, he was introduced to some cats as he walked by and showed no interest so he may be good with cats. He loves people and laps although at 63 lb he needs a bigger lap. He would love a family who will walk him and give him lots of love and attention. If you want a love bug and are willing to give him lots of love forever, please contact Rainbow Rescue at 757-472-1583 or [email protected]





Breed: American Bulldog

Sex: Male (Neutered)

Size: Medium
Vaccinations: Current

Microchipped: Yes
Age: 7 yr

Good in a home with  calm respectful children.  Would like to be an only pet

Meshach is a very smart boy who is very well trained.  He has several titles in agility, Fast Cat, dock diving and he earned his CGC.  His first guardian took him through all of these activities.  Because her other dog didn’t like him, she had to rehome Meshach. Her other dog would growl and stare and Meshach would go after her.   He did well at his second home for approx 2 years but then started guarding his dad from the cats.  Because of this issue, they decided to rehome him.   He is a high performance boy who can also be a couch potato.  He loves to fetch, dock dive, and run Fast Cat.  Agility became too stressful for him which is why he retired from this sport.  Meshach would love a family with no other pets, older, respectful children and have experience with these sports or are willing to continue.  He loves hiking, swimming, playing fetch and just hanging out with his family.  He needs a yard with a 6 ft privacy fence.. If you think that he would be a good match for your family, please contact Rainbow Rescue at or 757-472-1583.
