Family Name: Chris & Zack
Hi! My name is Christina (aka 'Chrissy') I'm about 1 year old, weigh about 40 pounds, and am looking for my forever home. While I wait for my family to find me, I'm living with my foster family. I have two dogs to play with me here, and it's my favorite thing! I play really well with other dogs, and am the submissive type in play. I am 100% potty trained. While outside I do not wander and have stayed outside without a leash. I listen really well and come when called. I also know other basic commands like SIT, LAY DOWN, and NO. I do need to be kenneled if I'm in the house alone. I'm still learning whats ok to chew on, but I'm learning with the help of my foster family and bones, dog toys and kongs. At night I would rather sleep at the foot of your bed than be kenneled. I have lived with children and do amazing with kids. I take treats very gently, and don't slobber you with doggie kisses. One soft lick is all I need to say I love you. I'm a sensitive girl, and new things make me nervous. My foster family introduces me to new things slowly, and I am getting braver everyday! If you are looking to an awesome addition to your family we should meet! I really want to know what a forever home is like!
Adoption Fee: $400
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.
