In the spirit of Christmas we named this handsome, jet black boy, Coal. He is a bit shy and very coy when he first meets you. Once he warms up he becomes silly, playful, and mischievous like most puppies. He is affectionate and social, but needs your patience when teaching him new things. We suspect he was yelled at or manhandled so he will cower if he feels uncomfortable. Since gaining our trust he has learned to walk on a leash, he is potty trained, and crate trained. He will make you feel guilty for putting him in a crate (in true puppy fashion), but within a minute or two he settles in and enjoys whatever we have given him to chew on. He sleeps through the night, not a picky eater, and is very good at entertaining himself. We feel he would do well with older children, because he is very mouthy and can be nippy. It is a typical behavior of many of the small dog breeds. He stops when corrected, but the nippiness may never completely stop. He would really love a family of his own. Having a doggy friend(s) would be a real plus. We are not sure about cats, but he is very young and could be taught to coexist. Healthy, up to date, has his bag packed.

Our Adoption Process...

Please call for a phone interview and to schedule a meet up time. Potential adopters will need to fill out a free application and be prepared to answer any questions as needed. There will be a home check and a phone call to their landlord (if they are a renter). Adoption fees are usually $250 (some exceptions). This fee includes spay/neuter, microchip, shots including rabies, Heartworm Testing (for long distance transport only) and protection (if negative), flea/tick/mosquito treatment, collar/leash/temporary ID tag, helpful literature, coupons, and more. An adoption agreement will be completed to transfer ownership and to insure the animals ongoing well-being.
