Adopting A Shelter Dog

These dogs come without background histories/ past medical information. We present these dogs as we have observed in relationship to age, size, breed, behavior, housebreaking, crate training, good with children, cats, dogs, and strangers. Dogs may present themselves differently in different environments, therefore The Dog Spot Rescue, their agents, volunteers, can not guarantee behavior, age, size expectations, breed, house Training, destructive behavior tendencies, and/or medical issues. All dogs from shelters have been subjected to pathogens from the shelter level which can materialize into disease in the future.  Each adopter must observe for themselves pre-adoption and make decisions for themselves the suitability of said dog and their tolerance levels for transitional time when adopting a shelter dog.  We ask that each adopter take their time when making the choice to bring home a rescued dog.

Bugsey came to us as the shelter was walking him down the hall to the euthanaisa room on a leash. Happily trotting along, he had no idea what was coming. We asked the question 'Where is he going?'
That day he went home with us instead of going to Rainbow Bridge.
He is such a total lovebug! A sweetheart that has gotten along with other dogs here with ease.  Bugsey is as gentle and funny as they come. He was nervous around one volunteer who was a big man. Maybe it triggererd a memory of another time and place....
We have no idea but we know we just love this little boy. Natural ears and a bobbed tail he is just too cute. We do not know how he got to the shelter and there is no back story but someone failed him. He is the type of dog who gives his heart completely. He would be your soul mate dog.
Adoption is $375.00 and includes his neuter, shots, rabies, heartworm test, bordetella, de worming treatment, chip.
If you are interested in meeting Bugsey, please fill out an on line application at: and then get back to us at: to make an appointment for a meet and greet. We will be showing Bugsey in Elk Grove on Wednesdays or Saturday. On Sunday he can be seen in Oakland at Pet Food Express from 12:00 to 4:00 and by appointment.
We sure would like to see this great dog home for Xmas!

Your Adoption Fee covers the following expenses: Spay/Neuter, DHLPP, Bordatella, Rabies (if age appropriate), De-worming and Frontline/Advantage

Please Note: Shelter/rescue dogs have been exposed to many pathogens such as kennel cough, parasites, diseases and conditions some of which may not have been discovered prior to adoption. Any dog that shows symptoms here at TDS are routinely identified, taken for tests and treatment. Our vet bills can exceed $10,000 a month. However, without symptoms, we may miss a disease, or pre-existing condition or parasite. Consider carefully if you have the tolerance for these possibilities. We consider, you, the adopters, the last leg of the rescue process.

About The Dog Spot Rescue & Rehabilitation Center

About Our Rescue Group...

They come from overwhelmed, overcrowded shelters, owners in crisis, neglectful situations, or simply abandoned to fend for themselves. Our mission is to eliminate the need for euthanasia, as a means of controlling the overpopulation of dogs, by spaying and neutering and by offering a place for dogs to go where they may rest, recover and be re-homed into a safe nurturing environment.
