I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Who out there is looking for a swimming companion? I love the water! My name is Champion! Then someone realized I'm a girl and added an "a" to the end of my name - Championa. I am a young spayed female who is 1 year old. I am so sweet and full of life. I have quickly become a volunteer favorite. I like to swim, splash and play in the water. I get along well with other dogs and I just love to play. Adoptable dog Champ is my soul mate and best friend, so if you're looking for a pair, you have to meet him too. I am friendly, loving and sweet. When I'm not playing, I'm looking for love and attention. That's Sweetpea, who is astonished that this crazy dog likes the wet stuff, in the pool photos with me. Please give me a chance. I'm a fun dog who will have you smiling in no time. Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.
I live at the Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center at 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills. You can visit me there any time the shelter is open. The shelter will not put me up for adoption because of my appearance, so my only way out of the shelter alive is through a rescue.

Adoption and Foster Care Application
NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.Adoption Process:
Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
