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.
Meet Angel Baby. She is an Doxie/Chi mix and is 3-4 months old. Angel came from a shelter and had run out of time. Now safe in our program, she is hoping that someone will see her pictures and fall in love. She is small, cute, and VERY loveable. Crate trained. Her tail as picture one shows, wags almost non stop. It took an hour to get these pix because she is a wiggle butt. Very happy and crawling on her belly, it was hard to get a still shot. SHe loves to play with her siblings and a leaf can become a game of catch. She loves water and is a silly heart. But she has her moments of cuddles and quiet where she will just be a little lap buddy. She is ready to meet her forever after. lol.
Adoption is $375 and includes her spay, rabies, worming, current shots, and all dogs go home on a two week trial. Please fill out an application on our website www.thedogspotrescue.org and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment. All dogs are met in Elk Grove, by appointment. Our adoption events are normally on Saturdays and we would love to set up a meet and greet. This is a cutie!.
Your Adoption Fee covers the following expenses: Spay/Neuter, DHLPP, Bordatella, Rabies (if age appropriate), De-worming and Frontline/Advantage
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.
