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.
Desire is looking for that special family or person that needs her as much as she needs them. Happy personable, full of love and life, this cutie came to us from a shelter. She was emotionally down from her experience when we first met her but quickly bounced back, with big brown eyes which melted our hearts. She is a good girl, who gets along with other dogs here, ignores our cats, great with our grand children. She is a funny girl, she talks (but isn't a big barker) and snorts a bit to communicate. She is playful and silly. She is a character for sure! She loves her attention, she loves belly rubs and big comfy beds! Desire just wants that forever home with people who now that dogs are not disposible. She will give you 100 per cent of her loyality and love for the rest of her days! This is a fabulous dog who enjoys people.
Adoption is $250.00 which supports the large rescue program here and defrays the costs of her spay, shots, rabies, heartworm test, bordetella, chip, de worming treatment and she also comes with a post adoption two week trial. Please go to: thedogspot.rescuegroups.org to the menu to fill out an on line application and then contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for a meet and greet appointment
Desire has a open date card and would love to meet you this weekend. Will be available at our adoption event 'Home for Xmas' this weekend in Elk Grove.
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.
