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.
Meet Riley a purebred German Shepherd male senior dog. He is about five or six years old, well mannered, great on the leash, a smart and attentive companion dog. He came from a shelter and had run out of time before he was rescued and sent to TDS. He appears to be in good health although he came in quite thin. He gets along with all here and loves walks and going out on the trails. He is very happy sitting by your side as you watch T.V., work on the computer, hang out by the fire. He is friendly with all he meets.
Please help Riley find HOME! He just wants to belong again to someone special and having his own human is very important to him. Adoption is $400 and includes his nueter, rabies, worming, shots, heartworm test and bordatella vaccince, microchip. If interested in Riley, please fill out an application at www.thedogspotrescue.org nd then contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Dogs are shown by appointment in ELK GROVE,
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.
