Arrival story: My foster Mom found me at a shelter up north where I was taken in as a stray.
Approximate age / weight: I'm about 8 years young and 54 lbs of spunky happiness!
Personality: My foster Mom just cannot say enough nice things about me! I'm such a sweet and happy boy who loves to play and chew on tennis balls when they aren't being thrown for me. I am learning basic commands and have been working on my leash manners. I love to cuddle and enjoy the company of people and other dogs... even cats! I am housetrained, too! If my age is holding you back from considering adopting me, let me assure you that I am healthy, spunky and spry and ready to play ball with you in the back yard. Please give me a chance. You won't be disappointed!
Forever home: I'd fit into many situations as I've got a pretty easy going personality. I really just want a home to call my own with people who love me and provide me with love and attention.
Pre-Adoption Application: To be considered for a dog, it is best to submit a pre-adoption application. The Pre-Adoption Application can be downloaded from our website - http://www.waggintailsdogrescue.org/adoptionprocess.html. Just complete the application and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org
Waggin' Tails Adoption Information: Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue has a standard adoption fee of $175 for adult dogs. Different adoption fees apply for older dogs, small breeds and puppies - $100 for senior dogs (9 years +), $275 for small breed dogs and $200 for puppies plus a $50 deposit which is returned upon proof of spay/neuter at six months of age. Our adoption process includes an application, vet reference checks, and a home visit.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check www.waggintailsdogrescue.org for the dates of our next adoption events. To meet a dog in person, please see our event calendar for the latest information. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group).
Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.
Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog!
