Dog Adoption

 

Check out the doggy in the window!

 These are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:

Willie

This fun and adorable little terrier is Willie.  Willie craves love and attention – and a lap!  Offer him your lap, up he’ll jump, and he’ll be your best friend. He is a lover and always has a fresh supply of kisses for everyone he meets.  He will follow you everywhere you go and will make the perfect choice for someone wanting a one-on-one relationship with a canine companion. Willie loves to sleep under your covers by your feet.  Or, you may wake up with Willie next to you in your arms.  He just loves to snuggle and be held.  

Willie is 12 pounds and estimated to be only about a year old.  Because he is young, he needs a family who can provide him sufficient exercise and long walks.  He is making good progress on his housebreaking and is looking forward to puppy school.  He gets along with other dogs.   Typical to his breed, he is not fond of a lot of noise and commotion;  therefore, he would do best in a home without small children or a lot of people coming and going.  He is not used to being alone, so needs a family that is not gone long hours and where someone would be home with him most of the time.

Willie’s adoption fee of $325 includes vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) combination, Bordetella vaccination, Rabies vaccination, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

Libby

Meet Libby the adorable hound mix (probably with beagle and/or a touch of terrier).  As with most puppies, Libby loves to chew bones – big & small – and … YAY … she’ll also retrieve them – sorta!  🙂  At about five months old, she is a typical puppy – floppy, bouncy, loves to play & wrestle with her foster siblings. She has lots of puppy energy, so she needs a home where she’ll get plenty of exercise.  Libby is happiest playing, she loves the backyard to explore & run & wrestle.  She sleeps through night in her crate or out in the room.  She’s okay on a leash – but true to the hound in her, she loves to stop & smell almost everything (“so many good smells… so little time!”).  She’s good with dogs, cats, men, women, and will be okay with older children but may be a little too rambunctious for very small ones.  She’s currently 20 pounds, but still has some growing to do.  Libby was relinquished by an owner who “didn’t have time for her” and as a result has not had a lot of training. She still needs work on her housebreaking, but is starting to learn.  She is a gem of a dog for the family willing to invest the time and effort she needs for training and exercise.  She (and her new humans) will benefit tremendously from puppy school.  Though she is already very social, puppy school will enhance the bonding process between family and dog and give her the structured instruction that will turn this good dog into a great dog!  Libby will make a fabulous family pet and companion for the family who can provide her with the attention she requires.
 
Libby’s adoption fee of $325 includes vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) combination, Bordetella vaccination, Rabies vaccination, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, microchip and spay.

Check out all of the available dogs for adoption by heading over to Adopt-A-Pet’s site.

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.
