You won't meet a more loyal love bug than Colton. He was taken to the shelter by a couple who said that he wasn't theirs - that they'd found him. When they started to leave, Colton cried and tried to follow them to go back home. It was obvious this handsome boy had some mobility issues, which is likely why he was dumped, but that hasn't affected his spirit one bit. He's living in a great foster home with other dogs, cats and kids and loves all of them. He especially loves his foster dad, whom he follows everywhere. Colton does have arthritis in his spine and will need a home that understands his needs. (He'd do best in a single story home.) This big boy is potty trained and an all around gem, just waiting for his forever family to come calling.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
