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.
Sammy is another lost little soul who felt very scared and betrayed when he came into our rescue. People were likely not good to him in his past life and he had a hard time trusting. We have had him in the program for FIVE long years. He is finally a happy little character. While he may be timid with new people, it doesn't last. He loves attention. He loves to be on the lap and coddled. He is a dancy prancy little guy. Loves other dogs and will run around with them, play, and cuddle. Big or small, he loves them all. He would prefer a home with another dog. He is not a big barker. He is child safe but may not be specifically a child's dog. He does live with kids as young as 8 and has been to adoption events with many young children. He is doing pretty well in the potty training department but adopters should expect some retraining. He can be in an apartment if needed but does love to run and play so dog parks would be appreciated. Adoption is $125 and includes his neuter, rabies, worming, shots, heartworm test, and all dogs go home on a two week trial

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.
