found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Baby Atticus is so very handsome and so very sweet. We are 99.999999% positive Atticus is Doberman Pinscher. There is the .0000001% of something else in him because of his fur being a touch fluffy and not as sleek as a typical Dobie. We feel he may have a touch of German Shepherd or other herding dog in him simply because he loves to talk. Needless to say, he is a brilliant and gorgeous young boy.
Somehow Atticus ended up in a shelter as a stray, even though he's only about three months old and had a collar on! This boy is all puppy and simply wants to be loved, play, and learn. Though he did not like the idea of a crate at first, he slept through the very first night in one without a peep (after just a short bout of complaining).
He loves the dogs in our foster home of all ages and sizes, though they tire of his antics fairly quickly. He is quick to learn and leave them alone when they've had enough. Our cat tolerates him and Atticus would be very quick to learn his place with any cat in a new home.
Atticus is a very smart boy and we are looking for a home that understands the needs of a smarter breed dog and, preferably, an adopter with experience with a dog of this breed/mix.
If you are interested in adopting Atticus you must first submit an application and pictures of your yard/fence line. It would also be very helpful for us if you could email us information on your experience with this breed. You can find all the information you need and the link for our application on the Adoption Process page of our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org. Or read on here for more information.
All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.
Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.
