Hi, I'm Danny Boy - They call me Danny for short. I am about 3 years old, and weigh about 50 lbs. I am house-trained, I am crate-trained, I take treats pretty nice, and I love to snuggle. I am a really good dog, but I'm told I should go to someone who is 'an experienced dog owner'. I hope that means it's someone who likes to do lots of fun stuff! But I think it also means someone who won't let me try to be the boss of everyone. I enjoy going for walks and usually need a training collar, but I've been practicing without one and have been doing pretty well while listening to commands to remind me to walk nice. It's fun to meet other dogs on walks especially if they want to play. I love to do spins in the living room. I usually don't chew on things other than my bone, but once in a while a sock is pretty tasty. Can you blame me? I do know that I listen to commands and wait patiently for my food. I will jump up against you when I get excited, especially when I hear those words that I love so well. There also is a word that will stop me instantly when I play too rough and don't know when to stop. I might be scary for little kids that haven't been around dogs because I might look big to them even though I don't jump on them. I do not like deep snow or spinning/flashing lights (this includes a camera flash). When you come to visit me, please don't be scared of my welcome bark. That is the only time I do bark, because otherwise I am a quiet guy with nothing to say but lots of love to give.
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.
