Adopting A Shelter Dog
These dogs come without background histories/ past medical information. We present these dogs as we have observed in relationship to age, size, breed, behavior, housebreaking, crate training, good with children, cats, dogs, and strangers. Dogs may present themselves differently in different environments, therefore The Dog Spot Rescue, their agents, volunteers, can not guarantee behavior, age, size expectations, breed, house Training, destructive behavior tendencies, and/or medical issues. All dogs from shelters have been subjected to pathogens from the shelter level which can materialize into disease in the future. Each adopter must observe for themselves pre-adoption and make decisions for themselves the suitability of said dog and their tolerance levels for transitional time when adopting a shelter dog. We ask that each adopter take their time when making the choice to bring home a rescued dog.
Joyful and soulful, this baby has no idea that he is a Pitty person. He is more like a big goofy lab in spirit. He just knows he has love in his heart, loves to play with other dogs, loves kids, and just has a happy attitude and outlook on life. He normally is a very quiet, well behaved dog and easy to be around. But when excited, he loves to do Zommies in the grass or snow, will give you the biggest kiss you have ever had, and meets all people with a smile. Bodie is EXCELLENT here with cats and, small children. He is quiet and gentle at home or on the road. He would love puppy classes to refine leash and basic skills. Bodie looks great Paco collars! This is a beautiful dog inside and out. He has been safe, sane and wonderful here. Unfortunantly, while Bodie has been wonderful with dogs of all sizes in general, there have been a couple of cases of unprovoked (to us) dog aggression. For that reason, it is best that he goes to home where he is the only dog or to a very experienced owner who can read dog body language and make sure no dogs are put in harms way. 99% of the time, he loves the other dogs so it is a bit of a mystery.
Adoption is $375.00 and includes his neuter, shots, rabies, DHLPP, bordetella, chip, heart worm test and a de worming treatment. If interested in Bodie , you must be a home owner and have a yard, be able to spend quality time with him. We want him to have many experiences outside of the home to keep socialization skills sharp. He loves adventures and would love to share them with you.

Please Note: Shelter/rescue dogs have been exposed to many pathogens such as kennel cough, parasites, diseases and conditions some of which may not have been discovered prior to adoption. Any dog that shows symptoms here at TDS are routinely identified, taken for tests and treatment. Our vet bills can exceed $10,000 a month. However, without symptoms, we may miss a disease, or pre-existing condition or parasite. Consider carefully if you have the tolerance for these possibilities. We consider, you, the adopters, the last leg of the rescue process.
