Amigo's Story...
Amigo has had some unfortunate experiences in his life. But he is a good dog, and if he is given a second chance, he will prove himself! Amigo had a home in the country with two other dogs and cats. He liked everyone, but one day he had the misfortune to come in badly injured from having been shot. On January 28, 2014, he had his front leg amputated. Amigo became a tripod, but he hasn't let it bother him. Recently, Amigo was along when a beloved family cat was killed, and the family decided that the three had become a 'pack mentality.' Amigo had been sleeping with the cat, they said. They kept the oldest dog, found a place for the second dog, but were going to euthanize Amigo if someone didn't step up for him. The staff at the clinic spoke up for Amigo and recommended him as a good family dog. Amigo is 3 years old, almost a gold color, 56 pounds, neutered, heartworm negative, and up-to-date on his shots. He's ready to go! All he needs is someone to give him that second chance, take him in, and love him forever. You'll find that he is very easy to love!

Act quickly to adopt Amigo. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Amigo, a Cottageville Norwegian Elkhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Norwegian Elkhound for sale in Cottageville, or seeking a Norwegian Elkhound dog from a breeder in Cottageville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cottageville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cottageville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Norwegian Elkhound breeders who help with Norwegian Elkhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cottageville paves the way for another one to be saved.
