Meet Big Ern – an 8-lb. precious, sweet-spirited Chihuahua/Pug mix – he is 4 years old and incredibly loving/sweet. He loves to snuggle/cuddle with his humans and is very smart – loves to play fetch and tug-a--war, going for walks and snuggling in your lap. He is good with older children but younger children are not his favorite. Even though he has lived with 2 other dogs----he would probably do best as an only dog--he gets sassy with other dogs. He’s not a big fan of thunderstorms or fireworks and only really barks when alerted by loud noises and other dogs. He is potty trained and fully vetted – neutered, vaccines, HW neg, micro-chipped and HW/Flea protection.

Our Adoption Process... has established an adoption process that includes the following----an intensive application is completed that list 2 personal references and a recent vet reference. We also like to have a groomer reference. An intensive phone interview is conducted with the applicant. We reserve the right to do a home visit or request pics of the yard or inside where the pet will be. We meet with the applicant in person once references are checked and observe interaction with the rescue. Once an applicant is approved, an adoption contract is signed that outlines expectations on how the pet will be cared for and states that the pet will come back to if they can longer provide proper care. Once the rescue goes to its new home, there is a 2 week trial period with several communications between the new pet owner and If the rescue comes back to us during this time period, the adoption fee is refunded. After the trial period, we will always take our rescues back but there will be no refund. We request that pics and stories be shared with us during the pet's life.

Adoption fees are usually $250, but we reserve the right to adjust the fee from $100 to $400 depending on the rescue. The adoption fee includes---spay or neuter, vaccines, de-worming if necessary, hw test, micro-chip, and hw/flea prevention. Other vetting will be done if necessary--- such as treating for heartworms, etc. The adoption fee is not based on the vetting that is done but usually on the age of the rescue or if special needs of the rescue.
