Arrival story:Buddy was in a home that was too busy for his liking. So he is now looking for a quieter, less busy environment.

Approximate age / weight:1 year/85 lbs.

Personality: Buddy is a giant love bug! But he will require a low-key home with a fun canine pal to make him feel comfortable. He is a homebody who is not looking for new adventures, but desires solid stability with a predictable routine.

Buddy is house-trained and crate-trained, but that's not necessary. He doesn't chew and is not destructive. He likes a cushy dog bed and will stay off furniture. He loves toys! He shares nicely with his canine foster siblings and is not food, treat, toy or space aggressive or possessive.

Forever home Buddy just wants a stable home where he can hang out with a dog friend and have carefree days. A fully fenced yard is a must. No electric fences, please. Going on walks and trips to unfamiliar places can make Buddy uneasy, but we're working on this. He's real easy to love and gives it back tenfold.

Buddy is in love with his new foster sister, Pearl. She will also be up for adoption soon and he would love for them to stay together forever.

About Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit rescue group. Our experienced and dedicated volunteers donate their spare time to rescue, rehabilitate, foster, and re-home all breeds of homeless dogs at risk of being euthanized or sold to research from area and rural kill shelters. We are supported solely through donations and fund-raising efforts. Our volunteers receive no monetary payment for their activities. Instead, their reward is the knowledge that a dog's life has been saved that otherwise would have been lost.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We typically show every Saturday from 12-3 p.m. (please see our website for exact location details). We often have other special events that are listed on our website, as well. Potential adopters can also schedule meetings with the individual dog's foster parent since all of our dogs are in fosters homes and we do not own a shelter.

Our Adoption Process...

We utilize an application process because we have worked hard at nurturing and working with the animals in our care. In order to ensure that these formerly abandoned, neglected and abused animals never find themselves in the shelter/rescue system again, we screen applicants so that the applicant is matched to an animal that is suited to the applicant's lifestyle.

It is our job at Waggin’ Tails not only to find new homes for our animals but to ensure these animals never have an opportunity to breed again. All of Waggin’ Tails dogs will be spayed/neutered at the time of adoption unless the dog is not of age and/or the dog has a medical condition that would prohibit sterilization at the time of adoption. Dogs under 6 months of age and dogs that cannot be sterlilized due to a medical condition will be adopted out on a spay/neuter contract which means the adopter must agree to have the dog sterilized by a specified date.

Adoption Fees
Adult Dogs: $225
Small Breed Dogs: $275
Senior Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months): $250 + $50 refundable Spay/Neuter Deposit

What does the adoption fee Include?
The adoption fees above cover all age-appropriate vaccines; heartworm/fecal test; spay/neuter (unless otherwise stated); and microchipping. When necessary, the dogs have blood panels, dentals, and professional grooming as well. In other words, we do everything necessary for the dog when they come into our care.
