THIS DOG IS NOT FOR FIRST TIME DOG OWNERS
Hi there, It’s me Danny Boy! I’m 3 years old and about 50 pounds. My adorable face is still winning hearts but there’s so much more to me than my good looks. I don’t like to brag but my foster family thinks I’m pretty special! The basic stuff like being housebroken, loving car rides and being crate trained aren’t problems for me. I also don’t bark too much, even when my foster brother does! I’ve decided that WI is a great place to relax and take naps so now I’m spending most of my days just “chillin’ out”. But I’m also getting my exercise here and I’ve determined that I love walks. If you have a place that I could run and get my energy bursts out that would be great too! I’m making great progress on my leash skills. The training collar that they use now helps me remember not to pull so much.
As for other dogs, I rarely bother my foster brother now because I understand that he doesn’t always want to play with me. I’ve met other dogs (but no cats yet) in the neighborhood and on my walks and have gotten along well with them with the guidance of my foster family. Even the small puppy next door, I’m really gentle with him. As for kids, I’m living with kids who are 10 and up. I adore them and their friends I’ve met. I haven’t had the chance to meet younger kids but I have to admit, with my size it’s hard for me to be careful sometimes so I may need reminders to slow down!
My dream home would be a family with a strong leader who has clear expectations and is consistent so that I feel safe without needing to feel like I need to be overly protective. They would be willing to help me to continue my progress with greeting others appropriately and using my manners. But most of all, I would love a family that recognizes that my absolute favorite thing to do is show my loving personality through snuggling up with me and letting me show all my wonderful characteristics that my foster family sees in me every day...could this family 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.
