Shadow is a 25 lb female red heeler/kelpie mix (born 5/15/15) that is absolutely the best dog with small children I've ever seen. She bonds quickly with kids and loves to be with them. She's great with HER adults and is affectionate and playful.

She is a heeler and, typical of her breed, she is protective of her 'territory' and will nip the ankles of people she doesn't know or trust. She is not a fan of cats and will chase them, and is picky about what dogs she likes (again, a typical heeler).

She gets along well with several small dogs we have here - absolutely NO problems, but larger (25+ lbs), intact females she does have a problem with.

She needs responsible owners and a fenced yard for this girl is a must. She will make someone the sweetest, most loyal companion ever if given the chance.

Her adoption fee is 150 and includes age-appropriate shots, worming, microchip and spay. An approved application is required (which can be found here: http://pawsitivetailsrescue.org/our-adoptable-pets/pawsitive-tails-rescue-dog-adoption-application-form/), as is an adoption contract.

Come Meet Our Pets...

You are more than welcome to visit us - we would love to meet you and we're quite sure the pups here would also love the visit.

All we ask is that you give us a bit of notice. Because this is a home-based operation, we do not have set 'business hours'. The upside of this is we can easily accomodate evening and weekend visits!

You can contact us at support@pawsitivetailsrescue.org or by calling 307-401-0306.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption, Spay and Neuter Policy

1) Our adoption fees range from $125 to $175, excluding adoption specials, and include age-appropriate vaccinations, worming, microchip and spay/neuter. If, due to age or health reasons, a dog cannot be spayed or neutered at the time of adoption, a spay/neuter deposit equal to what our vet would charge for a spay/neuter will be required. This deposit will be refunded upon proof of spay or neuter.

2) If the dog is 6 months or older, we will make the the spay/neuter appointment and take the dog to the vet for the adopter to pick up, or the adopter can pick the dog up from us at a later date.

3) If the dog adopted is a puppy, spay/neuter must be performed by 6 months of age and a refundable spay/neuter deposit will be required.

4) All adopters must have an approved application.

5) A signed adoption contract will be required for all adopters which requires spay/neuter and that the pet be returned to us at any time an adopter needs to rehome the pet.
