Our rescue will be at the Palo Alto Pet Food Express Saturday, April 1st from 12pm-4pm and Sunday, April 2nd from 12-3pm. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.
* If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. * We do not have a facility. All dogs live in foster homes. Arrangements to meet dogs occur after an approved application has been accepted. * We do not ship our dogs for any reason. * Our adoption fee is $400 for each dog/puppy. * If it is on a weekend of our adoptions, follow us on @DPSRescue on Twitter to get real time updates on our adoptions. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescue
This dog will be at Palo Alto Pet Food Express on Saturday, April 1st from 12pm-4pm and Sunday, April 2nd from 12-3pm or until adopted. However, we do meet with those who submit an application and are approved just prior to the event (by invitation only) and they are given the first opportunity to adopt. If you are interested in one of our dogs, we recommend filling out an application prior to the event to be considered. Applications submitted within 24 hours of the event may not necessarily be reviewed.
Raksha is a 9 month old Yorkie mix. She weighs under 10lbs. She's friendly and outgoing. She gets along well with other dogs. She is an option to go to a home with another dog. She also is an option to go to doggy day camp or the dog park. She is a lap dog. She has always lived with another dog. So if she's going to be someone's one and only, it will just take some patience to help her adjust to life as a single girl and being someone's one and only. She currently lives with a cat. She could easily join a home that has a cat.
Raksha has a mixed coat and won't shed much. She won't require extensive grooming. She also won't require extensive exercise. She is just learning to walk on the leash. That was a brand new experience to her (as it is for many of our dogs upon entering our rescue). She could be an option for apartment or condo living.
Raksha had never walked on a leash prior to going to her current foster home. But she has mastered it and she is a pro. She loves to play with her foster canine siblings but even more than playing with them she loves to play with tennis balls. She's full of life and spunk but she's also a cuddler and snuggler. According to her foster mom she is so sweet and loving!
Raksha is only an option for going to a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years (parents dogs do not count). If there are kids in the home they need to be over the age of 8.
**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)
**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
