I am a large but happy girl! My foster mom says it is quite something to watch me get the “zoomies” as I take off running around the yard. This is so much fun to do especially if another dog is chasing me! When I am not romping with other dogs, I find doggie toys and pick them up and shake them and throw them in the air and then pounce on them. And sometimes I look for my foster mom so that I can get hugs and pets because I am quite affectionate.
When I am done playing either with myself or the other dogs or my foster mom, I like to relax and just watch things.
Don’t worry though. I am not overactive and once I come in the house, I just lay around. I sometimes go in my open crate to take a nap. I am housetrained and possibly don’t even need to be crated but I like my crate so I gladly go in there.
I get along great with other dogs as long as they are not too little. I can’t really be trusted with really small dogs because my foster mom says I have a “prey drive.” I would likely not be good with cats either.
I walk pretty good on a leash — although I need a little more work on not pulling — and I have the stamina to keep up with you if you like to take long walks. I like to ride in the car so I am happy to join you when you can take me along. So far I have really liked everyone I meet. I may be too big for really small children but I am not afraid of them and I like the attention they give me at adoption events.
We will require either a physically fenced yard for Dot or else a home where she can have plenty of exercise walking.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com .
Our application can be found online at here.
Our adoption fee for dogs that are not seniors is $220. All dogs are spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccines and heartworm.
Our adoption process includes an application, personal and vet reference checks, and a home visit. We do not ship dogs under any circumstances.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check our front page for the dates of our next Pet Parade. Appointments outside of Pet Parade to visit our dogs are only available after an application has been filled out, and processing has begun.
Please be kind to our volunteers. E-mail inquiries will be answered much faster than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter! Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures, on the pet's details page on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
