Facts about Delaware: active, playful boy

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog/Plott Hound Mix
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Meet Delaware! Delaware is male, about 3 years old, 70 lbs, and appears to be a Plott Hound and Shepherd mix. Delaware is a really sweet, smart, guy, who loves to run and play. He has gorgeous black and gray/brown brindle fur, and has deep chocolate eye. Delaware was found as a stray and is now looking for his forever home.

Delaware is good on a leash, but needs reminders when he gets excited to see something up ahead, but he responds well to corrections. He is good with the other medium to large dogs, and enjoys playing in the yard with other big dogs at his foster home. Delaware has pretty pronounced prey drive, however, so he would likely do best in a home without small dogs or cats, rabbits, or other little animals. Delware does well with people once he gets comfortable with them, but when greeting them at first he can be defensive/reactive, so should go to a home that has the physical space and the handling competence to manage that.

Del does well with children, however he can be an energetic guy when playing and could knock over small children with his exuberance, so he would be better with children over the age of about 12 or 13. He enjoys riding in the car and will run up to the car, and then sit to let you know that he would like to go for a ride. He could use a bit more training, but this guy who learns quickly and works hard for treats, so he would gain more skills quickly. Delaware is crate trained, and knows some basic commands like sit and shake. Del is young and fit, so he would benefit from a daily round of exercise like jogging or long walks, or having a dog buddy to play with regularly. Del’s new home should plan to continue socializing him and to give him lots of love. He is a handsome, intelligent, sweet loving guy who would be a great addition to any home.

Delaware's adoption fee is $350 which includes his neuter, basic up-to-date vaccinations, rabies up-to-date rabies vaccination, flea preventative, and microchip. Even though the rescue is located in Eastern Washington, Delaware is in foster just north of Seattle.

About Red Waggin' Rescue - Kirkland Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Red Waggin' Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 that grew out of Connell Pet Rescue. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers that do this part-time and unpaid.

The City of Connell is located in Eastern Washington, and since it is a small city, it has no animal control, no proper animal shelter, and no pet rescue services. Red Waggin' Rescue is fully staffed by part-time volunteers to help the City of Connell Police Department rescue, provide vet care for, and find new forever homes for homeless dogs and other animals from Connell, WA and the surrounding areas. Our volunteers and foster homes are active in both Eastern Washington and the Puget Sound areas.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Although there is a small holding area managed by the City of Connell Police Department, Red Waggin' Rescue/Connell Pet Rescue has no permanent shelter facility.

Our animals stay in foster homes while they await their new homes, that are found in Eastern Washington and all the way to the Puget Sound area.

Generally, if an approved adopter is interested in another part of Washington State, transport can be arranged and runs roughly every other weekend.

Our Adoption Process...

Email Connellpetrescue@gmail.com for an adoption application form.

If you are interested to make one of our animals your new family member, please email connellpetrescue@gmail.com for an application form, which you may fill out and email back to us.

Please allow a few days for a response, as we are only part-time volunteers. We require a completed application in order to meet a pet.

Once approved, if you meet a pet and all agree it is a good match: a volunteer will do a home visit, you will sign an adoption contract, pay the adoption fee, and begin the approval period. Generally, adoption fees are $250–$350 for dogs and $50–$150 for cats, and include spaying/neutering, basic vaccines, and microchipping, all required by our rescue.

All of our adoptions include a 7-day money-back approval period. After 7 days, a pet must still be returned to our rescue but adoption fees are not refunded.
