Adopting A Shelter Dog
These dogs come without background histories/ past medical information. We present these dogs as we have observed in relationship to age, size, breed, behavior, housebreaking, crate training, good with children, cats, dogs, and strangers. Dogs may present themselves differently in different environments, therefore The Dog Spot Rescue, their agents, volunteers, can not guarantee behavior, age, size expectations, breed, house Training, destructive behavior tendencies, and/or medical issues. All dogs from shelters have been subjected to pathogens from the shelter level which can materialize into disease in the future. Each adopter must observe for themselves pre-adoption and make decisions for themselves the suitability of said dog and their tolerance levels for transitional time when adopting a shelter dog. We ask that each adopter take their time when making the choice to bring home a rescued dog.
Dexter is a hug waiting to happen. This small little guy is confident, loving, funny. He would be a soul mate for a lonely child who wants a special dog friend for himself, a senior owner who would love a small and easy dog to take care of, or as a companion dog for another dog seeking company. He enjoys people, very interactive, great car ride buddy. He fits anywhere, because he is so small. He loves life, enjoys walks, hanging out with you in the back yard, or going on adventures. We took him camping in our motor home and he was a riot. Just a great little dog. He is a social butterfly and makes your day with his happy face and wagging tail. He struts his stuff and is just a character. Adoption is $150.00 and it includes his neuter, shots, rabies, heartworm test, chip, drontal injection for parasites and a two week trial. If interested in Dexter, please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a bit about yourself, and what you are looking for in a companion dog. Dexter is ready to meet you! Tiny paws crossed!

Your Adoption Fee covers the following expenses: Spay/Neuter, DHLPP, Bordatella, Rabies (if age appropriate), De-worming and Frontline/Advantage
Please Note: Shelter/rescue dogs have been exposed to many pathogens such as kennel cough, parasites, diseases and conditions some of which may not have been discovered prior to adoption. Any dog that shows symptoms here at TDS are routinely identified, taken for tests and treatment. Our vet bills can exceed $10,000 a month. However, without symptoms, we may miss a disease, or pre-existing condition or parasite. Consider carefully if you have the tolerance for these possibilities. We consider, you, the adopters, the last leg of the rescue process.
