Hi there! My name is Dempsey and I LOVE all people – little ones, big ones and everyone in between. My foster mom says I’m a mini-velcro dog and I think that’s a good thing. Wherever you are, is where I want to be. I like going for walks. Cuddling is my VERY favorite thing to do. Any time of the day, I’ll snuggle up with you and nap the day away. I also love to sleep in, so if you don’t like mornings, I am fine with that. Fetch is my second favorite indoor sport and sometimes I make it a game of chase. I’m learning all of my doggy manners. I have been working on my sit, but I wiggle so much it’s hard to keep my bottom down. I’m quite anxious to cuddle.

I GET ALONG WITH everybody! My foster mom has 4 dogs, big and small, and I’ve learned to play with all of them…even the anti-social rat terrier.

I AM fully house and crate trained. I really do not need the crate and my mom only puts me in there if she’s leaving for extended periods. I am a good little watch dog and will bark when I see passersby, but once asked, I quiet down. I am also very happy when you get home, whether it’s been 5 minutes or 5 hours. I almost wiggle out of my skin!

MY IDEAL FAMILY will spend time with me, show me affection and want to have a bit of fun.

YOUR FOSTER IN THREE WORDS: fun, sweet and loyal

Age: 3-4 yrs old

Our Adoption Process...


We work hard to find the perfect home for all the dogs and cats in our care. Listed below is the sequence of events that we go through to assure that our pets and our applicants are the perfect match for each other:

1. Fill out and return our adoption application form. 

2. After receiving your application, we will verify with your vet the care on your current or 
previous animals. 

3. We will contact you to discuss your current situation and which pet you are interested in 

4. After discussion, we will arrange a time for you to meet your prospective new family 
member. We may suggest you bring your other pets to this meeting. 

5. If the initial meeting goes well and both parties agree to move forward with the 
adoption, we will make an appt and bring the pet to your home to meet all family 
members - human and furry 

6. If, at the home visit, both parties agree that the home is good match for the adoptable 
pet, we will move forward with the adoption. (Please note, some dogs may require several “visits” to the home in order to feel comfortable and transition smoothly into their new environment.) 

7. We ask the new family to have a crate, food, toys, treats, etc. ready before the home visit. 

8. At the home visit we will review the Home Visit Checklist and Adoption Checklist, review and sign the adoption contract, collect the adoption fee ($200) and take the Happy Tail photo. 

9. That same volunteer will check in either by phone or email to make sure things are going well and to answer any questions you might have. Please respond in a timely manner (1-2 days) 

10. 7-14 days after the adoption, we will collect the medical records for your adopted pet and send them to you. We will also update the pet’s microchip record with your information.
