This dog came to us as a stray, she was severely under weight and had been over bred badly. She can be intimidating to people. She is very selective about whom she allows to get close to her. Given the reason we think she has been abuse by a male. If you meet with her approval she is just a mild lap dog and love to play fetch. There will be background checks for the adopter, we do not know how she is with kids or other dogs.

About Our Shelter...

We work for the City of Jacksonville Animal Control and Shelter. The Animal Control division is part of the Police department. We only have 10 kennels for dogs and 12 kennels for cats. We work with out of state rescues and animal rescue groups all over the country. We have about 99% success rate in getting the animals to safe adopted pet parents, to rescues and/or to foster parents. We have not put any animals down for over crowding since we have been open. Which is approximately one year.

Our Adoption Process...

Our dog adoption fee is $40.00 which includes a microchip. All our animals are microchipped prior to leaving the shelter. There is an adoption application that must be filled out prior to adopting your dog. If the dog is not spayed or neutered you will have to sign a sterilization contract with us and the adoption is not legal until you bring us back a copy of where your dog was spayed/neutered and a copy of the rabies certification. Some of our dogs and cats have been spayed /neutered. On cats the adoption fee is $40.00. As with the dogs, adoptions aren't legal until animal has been given a rabies shot and been spayed/neutered.
