Italia is a 2 year old female Rhodesian Ridgeback & Boxer mix who is available for adoption through Foothills Humane Society in Columbus, NC.

Italia was a little nervous in the shelter environment at first, but warmed up quickly. She would be a great hiking companion, and would benefit from an active owner who will include her in outdoor adventures.

For more information or to meet Italia, contact FHS at 828.863.4444 or If the rescue is closed or you receive no response, please contact Take a Pet at 828.367.7667 or

Adoption Fee: $50

The adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, testing, vaccinations, microchipping, and any pre-adoption medications and veterinary care.

For puppies too young to be altered, we require a $100 deposit that will be returned once proof of spay/neuter is provided.


If you are considering adopting an animal, but would like to ensure that it is a good fit, and will thrive in your household, a Foster-to-Adopt situation may be considered. Contact Take a Pet for more information.
