Arrival story: Vinny was picked up as a stray, but the AC Officer knew who owned him. The officer called the owners and told them he was at the shelter. Vinny's owners pretended Vinny wasnÂt their dog! We know his family deliberately abandoned Vinny. Approximate age / weight: 1 year old and 31 lbs. Personality: Meet Vinny -heÂs just adorable and has been a very easy foster dog so far. His temporary foster dad describes him as having a very gentle disposition. He doesnÂt bark much, keeps his crate clean, and is respectful of all the dogs and cats in the house. He walked up, sniffed the cat, and walked away. He is not allowed to play with the other dogs yet because he was recently neutered and has to heal, but all signs indicate that he would be fine with other dogs. We think he may already be housetrained. Vinny hasnÂt lifted his leg in the house and he sleeps through the night. Forever home: Vinny lived in a home with kids, so we think he will a make a great family dog. He shared a kennel run at the shelter with 3 other dogs, and he seems to get along with all the dogs at his temporary foster home, so we think he will do well with another dog. Vinny will likely be fine with cats, too! Because Vinny is part beagle, a fence of some sort is best.

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 email@example.com 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!
