Bangtail Dog Rescue – McCleary, WA

Bangtail Dog Rescue in McCleary, named for the mountain range in Montana where we first incorporated, has been finding great homes for great dogs since 2000.

Scroll down to view our available dogs.

After moving in 2014, we have now incorporated our 501(c)(3) non-profit in Washington State.  The rescue will be run out of the Country Inn Pet Resort in McCleary.

Bangtail Dog Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping find good homes for dogs in need.  We work with all breeds of dogs but our specialty is deaf dogs – especially herding breeds.  Deaf dogs make excellent pets in the right homes.  They’re not too different from hearing dogs, you just use hand signals in training.  There are many deaf dogs that compete in agility and obedience trials…some even do search and rescue work! Bangtail Dog Rescue strives to find the right dog for the right family.  Jackie Loeser, founder of Bangtail Dog Rescue, is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and is available to answer any questions and help new owners with any training issues that may arise with a new pet.  Our goal is to keep the dog in the new home for life!

Ludwig is deaf, he’s about a year and a half old.  He’s outgoing and definitely needs his exercise.  He loves people and most other dogs. Lass is a 6 month old (as of 11/’17) deaf Border Collie. She is on medication for seizures, which she will probably need for the rest of her life. Lass is looking for a very active home that understands herding dogs. Lass will need a lot of training. She loves other dogs, but does like to herd them.UPDATE 11/12: Lass has been adopted!  Update 12/10: Ludwig has been adopted! We’ll let you know when we get our next rescue dog in.
