Hi Harvey the love able hound here, (sometimes my foster mom calls me Harvard Hound) and I'm looking forward to the New Year and finding my furever family. My foster mom says that I'm a special boy and my own family is out there somewhere. So what can I tell you about me. I am a 3-4 yr old treeing walking coonhound mix. I'm not very tall and weigh about 55 lbs. I am housebroken, crate trained and can be trusted to be let out of my crate at night and during the day when no one is home. I know my basic commands and have learned how to shake hands. Although I'm a hound I am not a barker, but if you ask me if I want kibble I will answer you and do a little dance. I am very food motivated and can be quite insistent on getting my frozen pumpkin/yogurt treat after my meal. I currently live with my foster mom and canine foster sister. I get along well with my foster sister and my canine foster cousins who come to visit often and at doggy daycare. Sometimes I need to be put in a smaller group of dogs if everyone is really excited. I am a smart boy and just like any smart dog I sometimes think that I should be the pack leader, so I'm looking for a furever family that knows how to show me my place in the family. I am generally a fun happy boy that enjoys neck rubs, belly rubs and cuddling. However if you are looking for a couch potato that's not me. I have lots of energy and love long walks and playing outside (I will be an excellent walking/jogging companion) I do well walking on a leash with a harness. If I get loose I'm not a runner. My foster sister and I recently escaped from the backyard and went to visit the neighbors, when they told me to go home I did. I don't have any children here but have done well with the children I have met. As far as cats go people have said that I don't like them but I've met some in crates a few times and haven't been interested. Oh and people have said that I'm afraid of thunderstorms, but really I just get super excited and want to go outside.
So if your New Years resolution is to become more active you should fill out an application and my foster mom will be happy to answer any questions. Also Tailwaggers has the 5 day foster to adopt program. What do you have to lose, Me I might miss out on a great furever family of my own.
Hope to meet you soon- Love and kisses Harvey
We are a Wisconsin state licensed dog rescue -WI# 402433
***We do not have a central adoption center at this time. All our dogs are in private foster homes within WI. At this time we only place our dogs in areas of WI. The breed of our dogs is our best guess with the help of our veterinarians.
If you are adopting an adult dog, which we consider 6 months of age or older, your adoption fee includes the following:
Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper shots, dewormed, flea & tick preventative, heartworm tested and microchipped.
If you are adopting a dog younger than 6 months of age, the dog will be up to date on the shots as per the dogs age. The dog will be dewormed, flea/tick preventative and microchipped. We only spay/neuter our dogs by 6 months of age. If you decide to adopt a younger dog than 6 months of age, they will need to be spayed/neutered at one of our preferred clinics. This will be determined by your contract along with the month they should have their surgery. This is included in your adoption fee.
Once you are approved with our rescue, you can meet any one of our dogs within the fosters home. If you are interested in the dog you met, you can take the dog home under our mandatory foster to adopt program. You receive 5 days to see if the dog is the right fit for your home.
If it is, we will conduct the home visit and finalize adoption. If it is not, it is returned to the foster. We are happy to find you another dog that meets your needs in your home.
If a dog is listed as PENDING, a family has met the dog and planning on adopting the dog after the home visit has been conducted. We always suggest sending in an application for a dog because there are times where the dogs are given back to us under the foster to adopt program. There are many reasons dogs are returned but normally it just was not the right fit for all.
Please go to WWW.TAILWAGGERS911.COM under HOW TO ADOPT . We have an online application that is very easy to fill out.
