Family Name: Destiny's Child
'I just had to come over to find out about the INCREDIBLY WELL-BEHAVED dog,' is what a woman said to me today while Lativa and I were out for a walk. Apparently she had seen us on our walks and during playtime in the park in the past 2 weeks. I guess she noticed how calm 'Tiva' is on her leash and how she quickly steps aside and waits when cars approach. Or that Tiva does not bark or pull toward other walking dogs and people. It could also be that Tiva loves to romp In the snow and comes when called; or stops and sits when I say 'wait'. The woman doesn't even see how this beautiful 2-3 year old, 40 lb bundle of love will sit inside the door and wait for me to put/take off her leash.
This girl is special and only wants to please. She immediately responds to 'no'. Tiva is house broken, does not bark (except to give one quick low bark to be let outside.) She is happy to be wherever her people are and plays or rests calmly in the house. If you want to take a road trip, she will happily hop in the car and sit quietly in the back.
Her favorite things are snuggles, belly rubs and butcher bones. She is not a jumper, is great with kids and other dogs.
Tiva has a big heart full of love and will be a great addition to a family who will return her love and attention
If you are looking for a fun, VERY TRAINABLE and loyal dog who is willing to learn - and has outgrown the puppy phase - submit your application to meet her. She will immediately steal your heart.
Adoption Fee: $400.00
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.
