Hi, I'm Geezer the Pleaser with a smile on my face. I am about 11 months old and weigh about 18 lbs. I’m still kind of a puppy and full of energy and fun. I need exercise and potty walks to make me a good house dog. I’m mostly house broken but, you have to know my signals and ask me if I would like to go for a “potty walk” at least twice a day.
I’m afraid of strangers and run and hide when they come into the house. I’ll bark from a safe distance and make friends with them if you say it’s OK. I’m not much of a barker more of a lover than a fighter. I’m affectionate and gentle to my family, other dogs and kids. I’ll smother you with lots of licks and kisses.
I am spunky, playful, and sweet and am a lap dog when I get tired. Being part Shih Tzu, I do have an undercoat and when I look a little scruffy, I could use a day with the groomer. So I don’t look like such an “old Geezer” when I’m just a pup.
I fly up and down stairs, go for long walks, chase leaves and chew on twigs. My crate is a good place to keep me out of trouble when you’re not at home. I sleep in my crate at night with a little protesting, I want to snuggle with you and be by your side.
I like children, cats and other dogs, real bones to chew on and toys to share with my friends.
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.
