Angel's adoption donation is $325 and she is being fostered in Central Ohio. She has been spayed, microchipped, received her rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms and on prevention, as well as flea prevention. Angel has also had a dental cleaning.
Angel came into rescue from an owner who could no longer care for her dog because of her family situation. She is a 5 year old loving Poodle - Cocker Spaniel girl who weighs about 15 pounds. She has a super sweet temperament and loves to burrow under the blankets and cuddle with you!
Angel is also an active little girl who loves to run and play, often seen just trotting about the house carrying a stuffed toy in her mouth. She loves to go for leash walks and is in the process of learning how not to pull in all her excitement at the great outdoors. When outside in the the fenced backyard, she gets so excited barking at all the squirrels and birds- such new smells and sounds! She takes her job as 'guard dog' very seriously, quickly letting you know if someone knocks on the door or might be walking by.
She gets along with other dogs but would be truly happy as an ONLY dog as she is totally focused on you as her person. She has been trained to potty pads and has good potty manners but will also go outside once she learns your home routine. She is a bit on the shy side, so a quieter home with no children under the age of 8 would be best, and a fenced yard is preferred (just because she loves to run outside!)
PLEASE NOTE: If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances. If you go to the individual webpage of our dogs, you will be able to get more information each dog.
Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here: http://www.ohiofuzzypawz.com/info/adoption
Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog. We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved. It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.
Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable. If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence. Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets.
The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at www.ohiofuzzypawz.com/forms. The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information. If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed. Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home. No application is approved prior to the home visit being done. At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.
We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer. We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
