Hi I am Flygone! I am a male Great Swiss mountain dog hound mix. I am not going to get very big maybe about 45lbs at the most. I am very friendly and love people. I know sit, stay, down, come. I am house trained and crate trained. I do get along with dogs and cats. I struggle a bit with dogs when people are around I like to think that I decide who gets pets and who doesn't. This is something that foster mom is working on. She is teaching me I do not control the humans homes. I have a lot of energy and need my daily exercise not just romping around in the yard I need a good walk or run. Foster mom says I am a very sweet boy but very strong willed. I need an experienced family who has the patience and endurance to continue my training and who will help continue teaching me to be calm, gentle and respectful.  I keep foster mom on her toes she tells me all the time that she has to be more stubborn than me and consistent. She says when she is I shine. She says I am a little stinker because I will take a mile if she gives me an inch. Foster mom says I have a great and fun personality and she loves me very much. She said it is very important she finds me a home with a strong, consistent and patient leader. I know if I have that for a family they will nurture the wonderful qualities I do have and help me be the best dog that I can be. I do have a barking issue in my crate that foster mom is working on I am doing my best at trying to over come that but it will take time. If you think I would be a good fit for you and you for me please fill out an application at I would love to meet you and find my forever home. 

Prior to adoption Flygone will be neutered, vaccinated, health checked, heatworm/lymes tested and microchipped

About Happy Tails Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Happy Tails Rescue is a non profit, 501c3, no kill small group of strictly volunteers who are trying to contribute by finding good loving homes for the many homeless animals that are out there. Along with most rescue groups, we all believe there is an enormous problem (not only in the state of Minnesota, but in our country) with pet overpopulation. We would simply like to do our part in trying to resolve this problem.

We could use your help in many areas, including foster care, providing transport for animals, help at fundraising and adoption events and donated pet supplies and financial support. There are many other things to help with, please give us a call or send an email. We'd love to hear from you!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter, we are a network of volunteer foster homes and there are 2 ways you can meet the wonderful dogs we have who are looking for homes.

We generally have dog adoption events on the 2nd Saturday of the month at PETsMART in Richfield (494 and Lyndale) and on the 4th Saturday of the month at PETsMART in Maple Grove (94/Hemlock Ln). However, our schedule will sometimes vary when special events conflict, so please check our website at of time to confirm that the dog you are interested in will be there to meet you.

Many of our cats stay at the Richfield Petsmart and are available for showing anytime that Petsmart is open. Our wonderful friends at the Richfield Petsmart will be happy to assist you with the adoption process.

Our dogs and cats are also available for private showing. Please call us at 612-588-0188 to confirm our adoption event schedule or to arrange a private showing.

Our Adoption Process...

When adopting a pet through us, we ask that you go through a short screening process with one of our volunteers. we consider the adoption of our dogs and cats to caring forever homes to be our primary responsibility. We work very hard to ensure that we are matching our pets with the appropriate home, for both the animals and the adoptive family. All of our dogs and cats are indoor pets and are not to be left outside unattended, or running loose. You will be asked to sign a legal and binding contract upon adoption and in some cases will include Obedience Training.
