Thank you for considering a Keeshond Rescue dog! We have many wonderful Keeshond dogs awaiting adoptive homes. Please visit our website at http://www.foreverkees.org to find out more about Keeshond Rescue and to view some of the available Keeshond dogs. New dogs arrive often and, as in Bella's case, some are placed upon completion of their evaluation period because they matched a home waiting for them. Bella was surrendered by her original family due to personal family demands--we promised Bella that we would place her in a family environment with children and without cats. During Bella's evaluation period, we determined that Bella's ideal home would be with an experienced adopter who is ready and willing to enroll Bella in a positive reinforcement dog training class.
We provide appropriate medical care and training towards the goal of putting each Keeshond dog in the best possible condition for a permanent adoption. All Keeshond Rescue dogs are subject to no less than a two week period of foster care in which temperament assessment, evaluation and thorough veterinary examination are conducted. We follow up on our adoptions, offer our adopters advice and support for the lifetime of the dog, and take our dogs back at any time if the people are unable to keep them. To make this level of support possible and enable us to get the dog back if necessary, we place our dogs only in Southern California. Southern California Keeshond Rescue is a small, all-volunteer organization. We do not have a kennel facility where people can come to meet the dogs. All of our dogs are fostered in the homes of volunteers and are shown by appointment only to potential adopters.
If you are interested in adopting a Keeshond rescue dog, the first step is to complete an adoption application. Please visit our website at http://www.foreverkees.org to download an adoption application. Please give detailed, specific answers to help us determine whether one of our dogs may be a good match for you. Our goal is for our dogs and their new families to be happy together for the dog's lifetime. We reserve the right to deny an application if we believe the home would not be appropriate for one of our Keeshond rescue dogs.We receive many applications and often have several people interested in an individual foster dog. Our review committee evaluates each application carefully. taking into consideration factors such as the type of home (house, apartment, etc.) children and other pets, the family's lifestyle and previous dog experience. We compare this to what we have determined is the most suitable environment for the dog, based on the dog's personality, exercise and training needs, possible medical needs, etc. After careful consideration, we choose the home that we believe is the best match for the dog. If you are not chosen to adopt the first dog you are interested in, please visit our website and email us if you see another dog that you think might be a good match.
Our adoption process includes a home visit. Seeing where the dog will live gives us a better idea of whether one of our dogs might do well in your home. The home visit is also an opportunity for us to meet you and your pets and answer any questions you may have.
Based on the application and home visit, if we think that one of our dogs may be a good match for you, we will make arrangements for a meet 'n greet. If we do not feel we have an available match, we will keep your application on file for future consideration.
