Marlene is fixed, heartworm-negative, current on shots (DHPP, Rabies, Bordatella), microchipped, crate-trained, and at least partially housebroken. Please understand that budgeting for monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventative are MANDATORY to responsible dog ownership, as failure to prevent/treat parasites is cruel to the pet's health and comfort, and in the case of heartworms, severe intestinal worms, or severe flea infestation, can even become fatal! Requested Adoption Donation: $135 against vet expenses paid out of the foster home's own pocket--no checks accepted. 30-day try-out period on all adopted pets. Collar, tags, complete medical records included. No special diet needed; premium foods offer better quality and digestibility, which means less waste and lower feeding amount required.
While walks, backyard exercise and outdoor playtime are absolutely important, still for their safety and to prevent theft, escape, poisoning, getting killed in traffic or eaten by predators, our adoptable dogs need to spend the majority of their time INDOORS around family and their 'pack leader' (that would be YOU). To be separated all the time is contrary to their social pack nature and doesn't keep them happy or mentally stable.
Not to mention the neighbor complaints and potential citation by animal control if your dog barks & howls all day, or escapes and causes harm or property damage.
Certain bully breeds (pitbulls/presas/cane corsos and mixes, Rottweillers and mixes, Dobermans & mixes, Boxers and mixes, Shepherds and mixes, certain others) will require fencing inspection prior to adopting them per local animal control ordinances; call or email for details.
Adoptions are by appointment, available in the Gwinnett (Lawrenceville/Duluth/Lilburn area, such as near Gwinnett Mall); or within reasonable drive of same. Please call & leave message on VM 678-MEOW-NAP, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. As not all pets are on-site, please call at least 1 day in advance of when you wish to meet the pet. Thank you for Bringing Our Hearts Where Home Is (TM)!
