Tootsie is very new to our rescue. She went home with her foster parents and foster dog brother September 10th. She is a small brindle mix about 4-5 months old, mom was said to be a small coon hound, but we are unsure of who fathered her. Much else of her back history is unknown. She is 30lbs now and shouldn't grow bigger than 45lbs. She is super shy, but sweet. She enjoys the company of any human who gets on the floor to rub her belly and so far is fine with every dog she meets! We are not sure about kids or cats yet, as she hasn't been introduced to them yet. We are working on her leash skills as she is new to going on walks and is unsure on what she is doing!! We will be working on her confidence as well! She also loves her crate and considers it her safe place. She is house trained.
Update on Tootsie:
She is doing great, full of life, loving her foster parents, her yard, and even her foster brother. She is definitely coming out of her shell. Unfortunately, she must have been exposed to mange in the kennel. Luckily, we caught it early and she is on a two month treatment with Revolution. Sad news is she can't play with her foster brother until October 22nd!! Hopefully these few weeks fly by! She is now finished with her vaccines with her spay to come early November. She will not be able to attend any adoption events quite yet, but feel free to email her foster mom at email@example.com to learn more!
HDDCR requires a spay/neuter contract by the adopter if puppies and kittens in our care are too young for sterilization. This is a form the adopter signs at the time of adoption, confirming that they will get the pet spayed/neutered by a certain date. We will hold a $50 deposit on top of the adoption fee until we receive proof from a veterinarian that the dog was spayed/neutered. The $50 deposit will then be returned to the adopter.â
