Hercules was found as a stray with an embedded collar (meaning the collar had cut into his neck). After many attempts to catch him, he finally came to us. The collar was removed and he slowly began to heal, both the wound on his neck and the one in his heart. He is still wary of new people and situations, but he has come a long way. He does well with most other dogs and cats. If this is the pup for you, go to our website - takeafriendhome.org. Click on the link to the application, complete and send. An application will put you at the top of list for consideration.
We do adoption events in the St. Louis area every weekend. Please submit an application on our website: www.takeafriendhome.org or check our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/dgdogrescue for details. So many pups seeking a home, so little time - we have many more dogs and pups coming up every weekend than are on the adoption sites. We post a list of the dogs coming up every Friday evening on Facebook.
To Adopt or arrange a meeting: Go to our website - Takeafriendhome.org. Click on the link to the application. You are not obligated to adopt, but please - if you change your mind - give us a call so the pup we are holding for you can find a home.
Housetrained? That depends on you. Even a dog that has been housetrained in their previous home will need to learn your schedule and how to communicate with you. For your dog to be successful: use a crate, go out with your dog, praise “right action”, and expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. Housetraining tips are in your adoption packet.
Adoption Fees: We take cash (and we love it) credit cards and checks. As with all of our adoptions, we know it is hard to get married on a blind date... even to a wonderful pup. We will take our dog back give a full refund in the first week. After 7 days, we will take your puppy back and you can consider your adoption fee a tax deductible donation to a very appreciative organization. To hold a pup longer that the earliest possible delivery date, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit.
