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.
This 'Boxador' came to us with a partial amputated tail-raw at the time and freshly injured. We have no idea who did this to him but it has healed now. He was also sick with kennel cough, had a bad case of worms. We have dealt with all the medical and now shiney, healthy and very happy. He is a silly heart who is ball obsessive. He will fetch and bring the ball to you and spit it out for another throw. His mouth is very soft and easy to take things from him. He eats like a Hoover and is not pickey about anything that looks like food. He can get the zoomies and does figure eights when happy! He loves walks, car rides, hiking, snow, water, adventures. He will bark if something goes bump in the night. He is crate trained and knows how to use a doggy door. He loves with his whole heart and completely loves attention.
An experienced big dog owner is required. No children. If interested in meeting Spinner, please fill out an on line application at: thedogspot.rescuegroups.org and then e-mail us for a meet and greet appointment this Saturday! firstname.lastname@example.org. Big baby boy is waiting to meet you.
Note: This is a large strong dog so applicants should be physcially active and able.
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.
