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.

Teeny Chi Weenie looking for a Xmas love

Nicolas came to us as a bun in the oven when we rescued mom from a shelter euthanasia list. He was born about a week later with his four siblings. Mom is a 'Cheweenie' and has the best personality out there. ALways happy, well adjusted, a complete lovebug. We know her pups will be the same. Nicolas knows the world loves him and we want to keep it that way. He loves to snuggle, play with his siblings, hang out with his human. A teeny baby still but Nicolas has the promise of a loyal and loving devoted pet. Nicolas will need a home with secure, mature folks who have the time, resources and patience to raise a growing puppy. He will need exposure and social opportunities with cats, kids, other dogs, strangers, new situations in order to become the best adult dog he can be. Nicolas is looking for that elusive one stop home where he can grow up and old with the same family. A big commitment which should not be entered lightly. Nicolas deserves forever.
Adoption is $375.00 which includes his neuter, shots to date, rabies coupon, bordetella, flea meds applied for the month, de worming treatment, chip.
If interested in adoption of Nicolas please,go to to the menu and fill out the on line application. Then e-mail us at: for a meet and greet appointment at our adoption event this weekend in Elk Grove. Nicolas can go home mid December or be held for Xmas

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.

About The Dog Spot Rescue & Rehabilitation Center

About Our Rescue Group...

They come from overwhelmed, overcrowded shelters, owners in crisis, neglectful situations, or simply abandoned to fend for themselves. Our mission is to eliminate the need for euthanasia, as a means of controlling the overpopulation of dogs, by spaying and neutering and by offering a place for dogs to go where they may rest, recover and be re-homed into a safe nurturing environment.
