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.
Meet Squirt! Squirt is a funny little guy. He can be a bit shy at first but that changes pretty fast and then he can't get enough attention! He is a silly heart, gets along with all the other dogs. He is a great size, in that 20 lbs range and will grow a bit bigger. Long legs ready for trips to the beach, hiking, road trips, etc. He wants to be your buddy. He would make a great companion for another dog as well. He is crate trained but needs all the normal puppy training.
Adoption is $200 and includes his neuter, rabies, worming, shots, microchip. All dogs go home on a two week trial.
To meet Squirt, please fill out an application on our website www.thedogspotrescue.org and then email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment. All dogs are met by appointment in Elk Grove, Ca
Your Adoption Fee covers the following expenses: Spay/Neuter, DHLPP, Bordatella, Rabies (if age appropriate), De-worming and Frontline/Advantage
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.
