Please contact Grace (gracelake@pawfirst.com) for more information about this pet.Update, September 2016:  Tanuki is still waiting for her forever family to find her.  She is still timid with new people, but with a lot of patience and love we know she can fit into a new home.  She is mostly house trained, though she prefers to go outside in a secure fenced yard to potty every 3 hours or so.  She likes to chase and bark at birds, squirrels and rabbits.  Right now she isn't very cuddly, but we know she will be eventually with the right people to love her.

Tanuki means racoon in Japanese.  As you can see in the young puppy picture of her, she had a 'mask' like a racoon.  Tanuki is Chihuahua/Pomeranian, and came to foster care when she was 5 weeks old.  She loves other dogs, but is a little timid with new people.  Some Chihuahuas are just like that.  She loves to play with her foster sisters Trixie and China.  She is scared of children.  She may be ok in a home with a child that is 10 or older, but would rather a 'quiet' home.

Tanuki is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm prevention and has been spayed.  She is working on crate and house training.  It would be best for her to have a home with a securely fenced yard since she does run away when she is scared.  Tanuki's adoption fee is $150.

About PAW First Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

*Putting Animal Welfare First*PAW First Rescue is located in Ponca City, Oklahoma. We consist of a group of volunteers who assists the local Animal Control and other sources to minimize the euthanasia rate in our community by finding homes for abandoned and unwanted animals.

Pets For Life Rescue operates solely on donations and help from volunteers. Our adoption fee, helps cover the medical care for the animal. All animals are spayed/neutered when they reach sexual maturity, current on vaccinations, treated for worms, fleas, ear mites and any other medical need the animal might have.

Our Adoption Process...

First, an application must be filled out completely and approved. Since we are a group of foster homes and do not have a facility, we make appointments for meeting with prospective adopters.

When pets are too young for spay/neuter, there is a refundable deposit that is required by the State of Oklahoma. After the pet is altered, send a copy of the vet receipt and we will mail the deposit to you.

If you are approved but are unable to pick up your new pet for more than a couple of days, you will have to pay a nonrefundable deposit of half the adoption fee. When you pick up the pet, that will be applied to the adoption fee. IF you do not show up at the specified date, the deposit will be kept and the pet adopted to the next approved applicant.

When paying an adoption fee, hold deposit, or spay/neuter deposit, please have cash, money order or use PayPal. You do not need an account with PayPal to pay that way, we can send a request for money. Send to: PetsForLifeRescue@yahoo.com

Thank you
