These are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:
Meet Tootsie Pup! We were told he is a Dachshund/Chihuahua mix, and with his long body, short legs, and big ears, this seems to be right on target, but we don’t know for sure. He is currently 12 weeks old at the most, and weighs a whopping 12 1/2 pounds.
In his foster home he quickly adjusted to the new situation, and went from lap to lap, enjoying all the attention and affection of the family’s children. At night he enjoyed the comfort of someone’s bed, where he slept without incident or accident. He is fine with other dogs and tolerant of cats, although he might bark at them at first. He seems to be well on the way with his house-training, and has typical puppy energy.
Because he is so young, Tootsie Pup needs a family where someone is home part or all of the day to keep him on a potty schedule and continue his socialization. Puppy obedience school is also a requirement of adoption.
Tootsie Pup’s adoption fee of $350 includes: vet exam, rabies vaccination, bordetella vaccination, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, routine deworming, flea preventative, heartworm preventative, microchip and neuter.
Meet Hoppers, an adorable little smooth-haired terrier weighing in at 13 pounds. Estimated to be just over a year old, this little guy is friendly, loves to give kisses, and, when he’s not hopping around, wants nothing more than to sit in your lap. He’s lived with children in his prior temporary foster home and loved to play with their resident dog, too, although sometimes had a tough time sharing some of his toys. True to his terrier heritage he’s bouncy, alert, energetic and playful. He still needs basic obedience training but is smart and has already learned ‘sit’ and was well on his way to being potty trained in his prior foster home. He would be a great dog to teach tricks to. Hoppers will make a nice family dog for an active and fun-loving family who can provide him with plenty of exercise and mental stimulation and that will put in the time to train him, play with him, go for long walks and give him lots of loving and petting.
His adoption fee of $300 includes: comprehensive exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, microchip and neuter.

Please understand that though you may want to take these adorable animals home with you when you see them, you will first have to go through the application process through Adopt-A-Pet. Applications can be found here; fill it out and send it to Adopt-A-Pet. One of their adoption counselors will contact you.
We are one of the many foster homes for Adopt-A-Pet, and rarely know the adoption status of these dogs. You can see all of the animals that Adopt-A-Pet has and contact them regarding the availability of a particular dog on their main site here.
