Arrival story: Jimmy was picked up as a stray by Detroit Animal Control. We fell in love with him and his goofy personality as he pranced around while we volunteered there. Jimmy was heartworm positive when we brought him into Waggin’ Tails. He has since had treatment and has fully recovered.

Approximate age / Weight: Approx. 6 years / 60 lbs.

Personality: Jimmy looks like he had a bit of a rough start, though we don’t know anything about his past life. He is such a loving boy who is friendly with everyone he meets. He’s got a very sweet and goofy personality that often comes out when prancing around or snuggling.

Jimmy needs a loving family or person who will be patient with him, work with him on training, and give him the love and attention he deserves.

Jimmy knows basic commands and loves to “sit” for treats. He also loves to give kisses! He is both house and crate-trained and will sleep in his crate at night or when his humans aren’t home. Jimmy is still learning and needs some work when walking on a leash. He is a well-mannered, snuggly guy who deserves to find his forever home.

Forever home: Jimmy is seeking a warm and loving family to call his very own, Jimmy enjoys learning new things, so he'd like his new family or person to continue with his training. Although he does not currently live with children, Jimmy has had some experience and seems to do well with children of all ages. Jimmy has a moderate energy level and would love to be your walking pal on daily walks. He gets along with other dogs and would do well with another canine companion. A fenced-in yard is required. No electric fences, please.

About Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit rescue group. Our experienced and dedicated volunteers donate their spare time to rescue, rehabilitate, foster, and re-home all breeds of homeless dogs at risk of being euthanized or sold to research from area and rural kill shelters. We are supported solely through donations and fund-raising efforts. Our volunteers receive no monetary payment for their activities. Instead, their reward is the knowledge that a dog's life has been saved that otherwise would have been lost.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We typically show every Saturday from 12-3 p.m. (please see our website for exact location details). We often have other special events that are listed on our website, as well. Potential adopters can also schedule meetings with the individual dog's foster parent since all of our dogs are in fosters homes and we do not own a shelter.

Our Adoption Process...

We utilize an application process because we have worked hard at nurturing and working with the animals in our care. In order to ensure that these formerly abandoned, neglected and abused animals never find themselves in the shelter/rescue system again, we screen applicants so that the applicant is matched to an animal that is suited to the applicant's lifestyle.

It is our job at Waggin’ Tails not only to find new homes for our animals but to ensure these animals never have an opportunity to breed again. All of Waggin’ Tails dogs will be spayed/neutered at the time of adoption unless the dog is not of age and/or the dog has a medical condition that would prohibit sterilization at the time of adoption. Dogs under 6 months of age and dogs that cannot be sterlilized due to a medical condition will be adopted out on a spay/neuter contract which means the adopter must agree to have the dog sterilized by a specified date.

Adoption Fees
Adult Dogs: $225
Small Breed Dogs: $275
Senior Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months): $250 + $50 refundable Spay/Neuter Deposit

What does the adoption fee Include?
The adoption fees above cover all age-appropriate vaccines; heartworm/fecal test; spay/neuter (unless otherwise stated); and microchipping. When necessary, the dogs have blood panels, dentals, and professional grooming as well. In other words, we do everything necessary for the dog when they come into our care.
