Hello everyone!! I am so happy I got to come to Wisconsin. My name is Dottie. I am about 1-2 years old, spayed and weigh about 55 lbs. I am crate trained, but would prefer to be out with my people and doggy brothers and sisters. I have to admit, I am a very energetic girl. I live to play. A fenced yard would be ideal, so I can run and run. I enjoy walking too. I am still working on my leash walking. When I see other doggies, I can get overly excited. I am learning my commands like sit, down, wait and off. I respond very well if there is a treat involved. But, like other active doggies, I sleep as hard as I play and am very willing to share my couch space with my people in the evening after a nice walk and meal. I love kids of all ages. Because I am a very intense playmate, I may accidentally knock into some of my smaller playmates, but it's unintentional. I am stronger than I look. I will say I get a bit too excited around cats and having a cat in the house would be difficult challenge for me not to chase. I am also a very avid squirrel watcher. My foster mom thinks I would do great with an active family with kids or another dog that loves to play.
I would love to meet my furever family and show you how great life can be when given another chance.
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.
Please go to WWW.TAILWAGGERS911.COM under HOW TO ADOPT . We have an online application that is very easy to fill out.
