Dog Adoption

 

Check out the doggy in the window!

 These are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:

Abby

Abby is a 1-2 year old delightful wire terrier mix, medium sized weighing in at about 22 lbs. She is fun, energetic, happy, playful, quiet and a real snuggle bug. Loves to play, ride in the car, cuddle up on the couch/bed and go on walks. Abby is crate trained and 75% house broken, just needs a little more practice. She is a little shy at first but quickly warms up, is great with kids but a little shy/timid with other dogs. She has not been introduced to cats in her foster home so that’s an unknown. Abby is smart and responsive, offers unconditional love and will bring JOY to the lucky family that adopts her.

Abby’s adoption fee of $375 includes: vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, microchip and spay.

 

The Polar Vortex Puppies!

Say hello to IceBerg. Named after the frigid polar vortex, this little boy has so much warmth, he instantly melts the hearts of everyone he meets. And by everyone, we mean young children and other dogs too! A docile, constant companion, Iceberg will thrive in a home where he can receive lots of love and attention. His most favorite things are cuddles and naps, but he’s also often game for fetch, tug-of-war, or a romp around the yard.

Having spent most of this short life in a shelter, he’s still working on becoming a perfectly potty-trained pup. He’s also accustomed to spending the night in his crate, but will appreciate someone nearby to reassure him he’s safe and not alone. He made great strides at his prior foster home and is so eager to please, we’re confident he’ll have no trouble quickly learning and adapting to all of the dos and don’ts of his new and forever home.

If you’re looking for a double dose of coolness, AND are prepared to put in double the work and expense, IceBerg is most bonded with his sibling IceMan. But adopting two puppies is only for the experienced family that truly understands the nuances of puppy raising and has the time, commitment and resources to do it right.

Meet IceMan, an adorable little mixed breed rescued in the grips of the polar vortex. But don’t let this warm and fuzzy pup’s name fool you. He’s syrupy sweet mixed with just a teensy bit of naughty. Quiet and calm, but not one to rest on his laurels, he would prove a wonderful companion in any home, be it serene or lively with other pets and children in tow.

In IceMan’s prior foster home, he was the quickest to pick-up on potty training. He is also crate-ready and you may occasionally find him cozied up inside his crate of his own accord. If you don’t happen to find him there napping, (here comes the naughty part), typical of all puppies, you might spy him in a corner sharpening his teeth on something less than ideal. Having lots of chew toys on hand and crating him while he’s still learning is recommended. However, as a quick and attentive student, he’s sure to grow out of this puppy habit in no time.

Stay cool — and warm — all year long with our adorable IceCube, a little mixed breed with a cool look but a warm heart. He’s a typical puppy, active and well socialized and is ready to meet you and move on to his forever home.

Haven’t had enough ice yet this winter? Come meet this adorable little IceCap who will surely melt your heart! According to his prior foster mom, IceCap is THE perfect puppy! This sweet little guy has easily become part of the family, which includes three teens and an adult male lab. He is eager to please, knows the ‘sit’ command already. He is well on his way to knowing that outside is for pottying, but still uses pee pads around the house when he can’t get outside. His puppy need for chewing has been met pretty well through a chew rope/bone combo. He also likes to play hide and seek with shoes, (yet doesn’t destroy them, thankfully). He LOVES cuddling and car rides.

 

Haven’t had enough ice yet this winter? Come meet this adorable little Icicle who will surely melt your heart! Currently about 12 weeks old and weighing in at about 12 pounds, she’s the only girl in the “Ice Pups” litter. She’s a typical puppy, active and well socialized.

 

 

We have no idea what breed these pups are, as each one in this litter all look a little different (lab, spaniel, shepherd, terrier, cur).  Since we have no idea what size, weight, shape, looks or breed they will grow into as an adult, only those willing to take pot luck should apply!  If you have size or breed restrictions in your housing or in your family dynamics, then these are not the dogs for you and Adopt-E-Pet recommends you instead seek an adult dog where “what you see is what you get”. 

Their estimated date of birth is 11/13/18.  Since they are still very much a baby, they will need a family with a stay-at-home person who can tend to their potty training, obedience training, exercise needs (lots!) and continued socialization.  Training must begin immediately with the whole family participating, and they are ready for puppy school upon adoption.  Please look into training options in your area and have a plan ready before applying.

Their  adoption fee of $450 each includes:  comprehensive vet exam, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, microchip and spay/neuter.

We have everything you need to get started, and, when you adopt any dog (whether they’re fostered here or elsewhere), you’ll get a coupon book filled with tons of savings.

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.
