Binky belonged to an older woman who passed away. Binky was not socialized in his first home as a puppy, so he is learning to be be comfortable as a family pet. Binky is about 4 years old. He has been doing amazing for the 4 months he has been with his foster (since February) and is expected to make a great dog in the near future. Because he has not been exposed to children in his sheltered life, we do not want to place him in a home with young children. Teens who can recognize warnings and respect him would be ok. When young visitors come over, he would need to be placed in a quiet bedroom to reduce his anxiety. His foster will bring him to your home for several visits before an official transfer is made to help him with this transition. She will also be available for guidance once in the home. Binky is a beautiful dog who deserves a loving home where he can be understood for issues he did not create. This is a prime example of why we do not advocate for the elderly to get a puppy.
ARF'N accepts applications from people between the ages of 21 and 65. We would consider applications from potential adopters up to age 70 for our senior pets. This will be determined on a case by case basis. Active seniors would be considered as foster parents since fostering is a temporary situation.
ARF'N is assisting a closed rescue in finding this boy a home. We are in Central Florida, but Binky is in the South Florida area. The adopter will need to live in that area.
The application can be found here: http://www.arfn.org/adoption-application/
Email questions to: email@example.com. We do not have a phone number to reach us.
Our adoption fees for dogs range between $100 and $250. All of our pets come completely vetted (spay/neuter, vaccinations, heart worm tested, on heart worm prevention, and a microchip).
ARF'N is a rescue operated by volunteers with full-time professional jobs during the day. We can't always get back to you immediately. Most of our rescue work happens in the evenings and on the weekends. It can typically take up to two weeks to go from application to adoption. More time is required for pets with multiple applications and during holidays. We do not adopt on a first come, first served basis. We find the best match between pet and adopter. Please be patient with us through this process. Rude emails will disqualify you from adopting from us.
