The man who would become his foster was sitting in the vet's office waiting for his appointment when a woman dragged a dog through the door. She said he was a stray and she was going to have him put down. By the time she and Dodger's foster finished speaking they agreed that his foster would take him home. The woman was thrilled. Upon looking closely at the dog, the man could see that he had some mange; otherwise he looked fine except for being underweight. And so Dodger was named and taken home where, for the last 4 months or so, he has been fed well, his mange has been treated, and his foster found out something quite endearing about him. He wants to be a lap dog! Well, that would be fine, except that this 1 to 1 1/2 year old is a Plott Hound that weighs around 50 pounds! He's a fine boy with a great temperament; he loves to play with the other dogs, especially one named Cookie, and he's just plain nice. Do you what I mean? He's a dog, and he's good at it. He's a really nice dog ! He's crate and house trained. We're not sure he likes cats, so we don't recommend he go to a home with cats. We do recommend that he go to people who don't mind a 50 pound dog on their laps. As we said, he's really good at being a dog, one who loves his people and isn't afraid to show it!

**It is rare that we know with certainty the ages or mixes that make up our wonderful dogs, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible based upon our many years in rescue.**
As Celebrate Home Dogs, the total fee, which includes adoption and transport, is only $200.00. This isn't because the dog is worth less. It's because they're worth more. We want dogs like these in your home as quickly as possible. They have been waiting too long, and they need their own beds (or yours) in their own home. More importantly, they need your love.
The adoption fee covers quarantine, worming, all vaccines, heartworm testing, heartworm and tick/flea preventatives, neutering, health certificate, and complete medical records.
Adoption Fee: $100.00
Transport Fee: $100.00
