Cassie is around 13 months. She came into the rescue afraid of everything. Her foster has been working with her to build trust, and Cassie has finally learned that she can trust the one she’s with. We don’t know what happened to her in her months before coming to rescue, but we know that she has a distrust of people in general, but especially men. For Cassie, having a canine companion who is a social butterfly would be the best thing, one that she can watch and learn from. After all, there are some things that no matter how much we try to teach, we cannot show her like another dog can show her. It doesn’t matter whether her canine companion is male or female. She doesn’t discriminate. Big or small, that’s okay too, although she does prefer someone who is large enough for her to play like a little German Shepherd plays, kinda rough sometimes. She would love a small pack of her own. A cat in the mix, okay too, as long as the cat is not too rough with her. Children, please no children. Cassie needs a quiet home with very low traffic while she continues her journey in socialization and trust. The natural chaos that children bring can be very scary for a dog like Cassie, especially when there are lots of play dates with strange children that she doesn’t know. At 13 months, she is still technically a puppy, so expect to lose a shoe or two if you don’t keep a watchful eye.

The minimum adoption donation ranges from $300 to $400. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is 100% tax deductible.
Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
Our adoption process begins with completing an application on-line. A phone screening will soon follow, and lastly a home visit will be conducted by our volunteers.
