Where are the spots??

DNA results tell us the sweet middle-aged dog we know as ChiChi is not a small Lab mix as first thought, but actually 50% Dalmatian, 25% Chow Chow and 25% Rottweiler. Who would have guessed?

ChiChi was running loose on the Fairmont Ridge when she was caught and taken to a local shelter. The shelter's call to her owners from the number on her microchip confirmed that she had been abandoned, so in due time she was released to Dusty Paws.

It was traumatic for ChiChi to lose her family and at first she seemed to be looking for them in every person who walked by. But in a week she settled into her foster home, where she has bonded to her foster family. She has also been the tolerant “big sister” to several foster brothers and sisters. ChiChi is a pleasure to have in the home, and that's where she most loves to be. She is house-trained, doesn't chew and doesn't bark much. She is not needy, but will follow you around and lay at your feet.

ChiChi needs a forever family – preferably people who will be with her much of the time and enjoy having her in the house. She doesn’t like to be left alone. If there is another dog in the home for more company, all the better. ChiChi is friendly toward other dogs and will interact nicely with them. However, she is not good with cats.

We believe that, considering her history, it may take a week or two for her to feel "at home" in a new environment.

About Dusty Paws Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of volunteers whose mission is to save abandoned, neglected and/or abused animals by placing them into permanent, safe, stable and caring new homes. All of us have experience with volunteering in shelters and continue to volunteer.

We do not mind driving to do a home visit nor do we mind taking the time to go anywhere to look at a potential needy animal who needs to be saved from any situation, either in a shelter or in a home. We do take owner surrenders and have an owner assist program but most of our animals come from shelters.

We hate to see any animal suffer and this is why we do this.

Our Adoption Process...

Our process to adopt is as follows: An application form is completed and submitted at which time we will contact the applicant within 24 hours and discuss the animal they are interested in and make an appointment to meet or give them the date of the next adoption showcase. The entire family should meet along with any resident animals, if possible. Once that is done and it seems like a good fit, a home visit is required at which time we can leave the animal for a required sleepover period of approximately 10-14 days and a Sleepover Agreement is then signed; if that works out then we can proceed with adoption. Our adoption fee is $300 for dogs, $100 for cats, $350 for puppies under one year of age and $50 is refunded upon receipt of a Certificate of Completion of Training from a certified training facility/trainer for a puppy adoption. At any given time after the adoption, Dusty Paws Rescue will accept back into our program the adopted animal if it doesn't work out.
