My name is Gracie, I am 6 years old and weigh about 65 lbs. I am a 'low-rider' lab mix with the softest pure black coat. I am a calm, sweet girl that just loves every person I meet! My labby tail never seems to stop wagging!
But I'm not just a pretty face - I know stuff! I am completely housebroken, and will sleep quietly in my crate at night if that's what you'd like. But I've earned the trust in my foster home and can now spend the night on a dog bed or next to my human's bed. I'm not super thrilled about being in my crate during the day when my family leaves, but I'm working on that part. I love going for walks, I don't tug or pull (ok, maybe I need gentle reminder now & then). I don't jump up, and I'm good at staying off the furniture if that's the rule in your house (but if I can come up to snuggle - woohoo!). I do enjoy my meals, but I've left my dish half-full to come get some attention, I can go back and eat later if there's a chance to get some love! And that simple stuff that is important to humans - like sit, lie down, come - I know that too. I don't do well with harsh corrections, I'm a sensitive girl - just tell me when you don't like something I'm doing and I'll work really hard to do better!
I've lived with cats, I think they're interesting, but not worth chasing. And other dogs are okay too, I can be cautious when I meet new dog friends, some dogs just do not understand that a girl needs some time to get acquainted! But give me some time to get my sniffs on, and we'll be fine. And if you don't have a dog friend for me, that's okay too. I would be best with older kids 10 years old and up - I really like the little ones, but I don't get why they don't always want to share their toys and snacks.
My favorite thing to do (besides spend as much time as possible with you!) is to patrol my fenced in yard, looking for all of the great smells that appear every day. If I see something to chase, like a SQUIRREL, I am off like a shot. And if we could do a walk every day, that would make me happy. But once I get a little exercise, I will find a comfy spot to lie down that keeps me by you, and that's where I'll stay - unless you get up, then I'll follow you there and find a spot, until you move again - well, you get the picture.
So, let's get started on meeting each other! Tailwaggers 911 has this cool thing called a five-day Foster To Adopt program, which means I can come on a sleepover to your house to see if we are meant to be. All you have to do is submit your application!
Adoption Fee: $400
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.
