We don't take calls about our adoptable dogs. We are an all volunteer organization and do not have a shelter nor a receptionist to take calls and answer questions. All our dogs are fostered in loving homes by volunteers, most of whom work full time jobs then come home to take care of their families and the little rescued dogs who live as members of the family.
We desperately need volunteers who are willing to foster little dogs in their homes while we search for approved adopters. We pay all the vet bills and provide supplies to our foster homes. For more information, email Linda, PapillonMom@gmail.com.
HERE ARE THE FACTS ABOUT: Charlie
AGE: 7 years
GENDER: Neutered Male
WEIGHT: 9.5 lbs
MEDICAL INFO: Neutered, examined by vet, up-to-date on rabies, combination and Bordetella vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Has a collapsed trachea, enlarged heart and asthma all of which we are treating with pills. We wrap the pills in cheese and Charlie eats them up. Did I mention that Charlie is a chow hound? He loves to eat and will eat anything he can get. Charlie's medications are costing us $150.00 each month when we are not using an asthma inhaler (which he doesn't need at this time).
HOUSE-TRAINED: Yes, with a doggie door. Not without a doggie door. He wears a bellyband in our home as he has decided that marking inside is a good thing as we have sevenother males in the house that he has to outdo scent wise.
CRATE-TRAINED: NO, hates them and barks non stop When he knows people are in the house and he cannot see them. At night he will tolerate being crated as long as he is close to and can see his mom in bed from the crate. We crated Charlie the first week, but now he sleeps in bed withus!
GOOD WITH CHILDREN: Good with children, preferably children over the age of 5 years as it would be dangerous for Charlie if a child fell on him.
GOOD WITH STRANGERS: Yes, he is very social
GOOD WITH OTHER DOGS: Yes
GOOD WITH CATS: Yes
REQUIRES FENCED YARD: Yes, is he is accustomed to going out the doggie door when he needs to potty.
STAY-AT-HOME ADOPTER AND/OR COMPANION DOG: Requires one or the other.
EXCESSIVE BARKER: Only when crated when people are in the home and when he wants food.
CHEWER: Not inappropriate chewing, but loves dog chews!
JUMPER/ESCAPE ARTIST: No
Comments from foster mom:
Charlie was rescued from a breeding operation of around 100 dogs. The breeder was reducing stock and we were able to get this little boy out. We want to find him a home indoors with people who will love him for the rest of his life.
Charlie was someone's pet before he was purchased by the breeder. He lived in the house at one time, was house trained with a doggie door and enjoyed living indoors as a member of a family. As a breeder, his whole world was turned upside down. He was not allowed inside the house and had to remain in the breeding kennels with the other dogs, so we are sure he did not get much if any individual attention other than feeding. When we got Charlie, he wanted to mark everything the first few days. That's probably because we have seven other male dogs that have all marked in the past and even after clean up he catches the scent. Handling the initial marking issue in a new home without the scent of dozens of male dogs who have passed through our home is as simple as putting a bellyband with an incontinence pad inside around the dog's waist so the pad catches the urine and watching his every move for 2-4 days so as to catch him in the act of marking and sternly tell him 'No', then take him outside to potty. The bellyband eliminates the problem of urine on the furniture, etc. We often put a bellyband on a new foster dog until we can determine if he is housetrained. When Charlie can use the doggie door, he only occasionally has an accident in the house.
He is such a sweet and gentle boy and loves to cuddle and get rubs and scratches from his people. He will even paw gently at your hand if you stop before he has had enough pets. He wants to be right next to his person and will follow you from room to room. Charlie gets along well with all the humans, dogs, and cats in his foster home. He is going to make some family a wonderful, loving little companion.
Please consider giving our little Charlie a chance to be your best friend. You won't regret it!

Our Adoption Process: We require an application be completed and submitted if you wish to adopt a dog from Papillon Pals. Once the application is received, our Adoption Committee reviews the application to make sure the applicant meets the requirements for adopting the dog (for example: requires a fenced yard, or a stay-at-home adopter, etc.). We then check personal and vet references. If all is well with the references, we contact the applicant to schedule a time to take the dog to their home and meet all of the family. All information is then submitted to our Adoption Committee for review/approval. This process may take up to two weeks to complete.
We desperately need foster homes for newly rescued dogs. If you think you might be interested in fostering a small dog, contact Linda, PapillonMom@gmail.com for more information.
