Family Name: Chris & Zack
Hi, my name is CHRISTINA (aka “Chrissy”)! I’m about a year old and I am the sweetest girl! I had been in the GA shelter for a long time with my sister. We were found as a strays awhile back and nobody came to claim us. We both got a ride to WI and are in our own foster homes waiting for our forever families!
I am on a feeding schedule currently twice a day. I eat in the morning around 7:30 am, and then again at night around 6 pm. I do really well eating around other dogs. I express my concern if I do not like someone else in my dish, but I do it politely.
During the day my foster mom kennels me. She comes home at lunch and I get an hour of free time. Then I am kenneled again until she gets home. I’m still working on earning trust to be left out for long periods of time, but in my juvenile age it will take some time.
I am 98% potty trained and just working on the communication between my foster family so that we all understand my body language for when I need to be let out.
While outside I do not wander and have stayed in the yard without a leash. I listen really well and come when called.
Here are some fun traits about me:
• I play well with other dogs – I still have a lot of energy and love play time
• I am good around small children and like to play – I just have a tendency to get a little too excited at times but I am working on that ;-)
• I’m super sweet and love kisses and attention
• I go potty outside and do not require a leash – I listen very well
• I love dog toys! Durable ones are best for me as I like to shred stuffed animals
• I like going for walks with my foster family
• I sit for treats and on command
• I do need a home without cats
I would be a great family dog for a family with kids that can go on walks and play with me. I am looking forward to a loving furever home – could it be yours?!
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.
