Our rescue will be at the Palo Alto Pet Food Express Saturday, January 21st from 1-4pm and Sunday, January 22nd from 12-3pm. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.
* If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. * We do not have a facility. All dogs live in foster homes. Arrangements to meet dogs occur after an approved application has been accepted. * We do not ship our dogs for any reason. * Our adoption fee is $400 for each dog/puppy. * If it is on a weekend of our adoptions, follow us on @DPSRescue on Twitter to get real time updates on our adoptions. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescue
This dog will be at Palo Alto Pet Food Express on Saturday, January 21st from 1-4pm and Sunday, January 22nd from 12-3pm or until adopted. However, we do meet with those who submit an application and are approved just prior to the event (by invitation only) and they are given the first opportunity to adopt. If you are interested in one of our dogs, we recommend filling out an application prior to the event to be considered. Applications submitted within 24 hours of the event may not necessarily be reviewed.
Whisper is a 3 year old Black Lab-Shar Pei mix. You can see the cute little wrinkles on her face and whenever she 'smiles' you see all the wrinkles! Whisper loves the teenagers in her foster home. She gets super excited when they come home. They love playing with her and when it's too hot outside they like to hang out in the TV room. They're usually laying all over each other and all tangled up.
Whisper loves to fetch! She's a fetching machine. You will give up before she does!
Whisper came into our rescue with another dog. She was found abandoned down in a riverbed with no homes anywhere near. After several months and no one coming forward we were contacted and asked if we would be willing to help find her a home. Whisper can be dog choosey. If you're looking for a dog who can co-exist with a dog in her home she is an option for those dogs who are non-dominant in personality. She currently lives in a foster with 3 other big dogs and they play all day. But she's not a dog for the active dog park with too many dog personalities.
Whisper has always been in a home with teens and pre-teen. She is a people lover. She is a lounger in the house and then she is playful and outgoing while outside. She prefers strangers to stay out of her face until she knows them. So when walking we are diligent to tell folks give her space until she falls in love with them!
Whisper is an amazing dog! She is doing fine. She is a quick study. She is learning to walk on a leash and has adjusted well to our schedule. She does great with our dog and even with cats. Whisper feels comfort in her crate at night, but would do even better cuddled in someone's bed. Definitely a love bug, who loves to cuddle!
**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)
**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
