Jethro Gibbs is my name and investigating places is my game! I am about 4 years old and weigh about 70 lbs. I’m your typical “nosey” sleuth Hound Dog. Will you please put me on the case?
After careful investigation, I know what I love most in life: YOU. How is that possible since we haven't met? Well, are you human? Are you friendly? Then I already love you! I am a happy boy who wants nothing more than to be with people. I'll snuggle up close--REALLY close if you're okay with it!--and snore away while you stroke my big ol' ears or oooooo and ahhhhhhh over my adorable forehead wrinkles. But make no mistake, I also love to play. You'd be surprised at how nimble I am for such a big boy! I love tug o' war and rawhides and my Kong and food and chasing you and food and blankets and food. The only thing that doesn't seem to enjoy being chased is the darn cat!! Every day I love to get my 'plays' out and also love my morning and evening walks. (I think I could be good for your health! Your soft and feely heart and the actual muscle!)
I am crate trained, housebroken, leash trained, and know how to sit. We're working on some other stuff, too. Who knows what tricks I'll know by the time we meet.
My foster dad says I'm the quintessential Family Dog. I have no idea what that means. I just know I'm friendly, loving, non-aggressive, and want to be wherever you are. Do you need a best friend? I'm on the case. Let's meet!
Adoption Fee: $390.00
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.
