These are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:
Sundae, Sherbet, and Sorbet
Meet the Ice Cream Pups! We’re just getting to know these playful and adorable puppies, so stay tuned. There are a total of 7 puppies on the litter, they are approximately 10 weeks old and are super sweet, friendly, socialized and playful. Their breed is unknown so we have no idea how big they will be when adult. The adopter must be willing to take pot luck! These pups will ideally have a stay at home person to continue with socialization, help them with house training and take them to puppy obedience class.
The adoption fee of $425 each includes: vet exam, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, flea preventative, routine deworming, microchip, spay/neuter.
Twinky and Inky
Twinky is a happy puppy who is approximately 9-10 weeks old and looks to us like a hound/terrier mix. We think there’s likely some lab in her as well since since her mom, Slinky (also for adoption) has a labrador looking face. Weighing at about 15 lb. at the time of this writing, Twinky is a high-spirited, energetic pup who loves to wrestle with her brother, Inky. Twinky can sleep 10 hours a night without soiling her crate and she goes potty as soon as her paws touch the grass. She’s a quick learner and is a good age to start puppy obedience class. Twinky is a big fan of her nylabone, playing with her ball and going down for puppy naps.
Inky is a sweet, calm puppy who is approximately 10 weeks old and looks to us like a lab/terrier mix. He looks very much like his mom, Slinky (also for adoption), and probably built like her as well. Weighing at about 17 lb. at the time of this writing, Inky is very gentle and loves to cuddle. He might mouth your fingers (if they happen to find their way into his mouth) but he will not apply pressure. His sister, Twinky is more energetic than he is, but he can hold his own while playing with her. Inky’s good for a full night in the crate and holding it until he’s outside and his paws touch the grass. He’s a quick learner and is a good age to start puppy obedience class.
Since we don’t know what they will look like as an adult or how big she will be, the adopter should be willing to love them whatever they might look like. And since they are puppies, they cannot be left alone for long hours. The ideal home will include at least one of the following: a fenced in backyard, a resident playful dog who needs a companion, regular trips to a dog park or regular playdates with other dogs, and lots of attention from her humans. It goes without saying that their ideal home will also include people who will provide a permanent, safe and loving home with plenty of guidance.
Their adoption fee of $395 each includes: vet exam, distemper and bordetella vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, heartworm prevention, microchip and spay/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.
