Please contact k9resq@sbcglobal.net for more information about this pet. A REAL GOOFBALL. GENERAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Q-Tip has come from a kenneled environment and is much more comfortable with other dogs than with new people. He did not have the proper and necessary socialization normally given to puppies and had very little human contact, which will require more patience and understanding when adding him to your family. It is important to realize that there is ALWAYS a period of adjustment when adding a rescue dog to a family, which will take time and patience and understanding. Some require more time and patience than others and there may very well be an issue or two to work through in order to earn their trust and overcome their fears and lack of socialization. Being in a foster home is his first opportunity to learn to be a real dog. It will only get better once he gets a forever home of his very own where he will progress even faster and further, but it will not happen overnight, but the rewards will be so worth it! If you are willing to look past the possible initial feartimidity/apprehension and give a former kenneled dog a chance, realizing they can and will adjust to the life of the pampered pet they were meant to be and should have been their entire lives, they will be the most grateful pet imaginable. They really are eager to please. Please remember, THERE ARE NO PERFECT DOGS, no matter what the background. Dogs generally become what you make of them through your efforts, love, patience, and understanding. And--if you are willing to overlook their slight imperfections, they will certainly overlook yours!

Q-Tip has recently come from a kennel situation. He is very social and would love to become a cherished house pet. He is sweet as can be and looks like a little stuffed panda bear. He will need patience and time while he learns housebreaking rules. He was not kept as a housepet in his previous situation. A REAL GOOFBALL!! We do process the applications in the order that they are received. We cannot guarantee any particular dog will still be available by the time we get to your application. We cannot respond to each application or keep you updated as we go along. We do not consider a dog adopted until the process has been completed and a contract has been signed. As long as the dog is still listed, it is still available and we are processing applications. As soon as a dog is adopted, it is removed from the list. If you apply and your application is approved, we will contact you. If you decide not to wait or find another dog, please let us know so we can go on to another application.
