Hi! I am Matilda, a 14 month old mixed breed girl. I came to CCRC very very skinny and malnorished. I have since put on some weight and am now a beautiful, healthy girl. I have great toy and tug drive and will fetch a ball or any toy with enthusiasm! I LOVE to play! I also have great food drive which makes it easy to teach me all sorts of things. I would do great in dog sports, running or just as an active companion. I am a smart girl and will quickly learn anything you want to teach me. I have been doing a great job meeting new dogs and have some doggy friends now. I do get nervous and reactive around dogs I don't know, however, so I will need continued work in this area. I have no worries about people, though, so come meet me and we could be playing together in no time!
We do not have a facility for you to visit. WE PROCESS APPLICANTS AND SET APPOINTMENTS BASED ON THE ORDER APPLICATIONS ARE RECEIVED , so while you are welcome to call (248) 834-9419 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with specific questions, you will want to complete the ONLINE APPLICATION ASAP , which can be found at www.ccrcdogs.com, to secure your position in line for one of our dogs. You can also find a description of our process on that same page. Puppies will not be available to be seen until their 10 day quarantine has passed. Our adoption fee is $200 for adults and $275 for puppies, which covers the cost of the spay/neuter, age appropriate shots and tests, medications to bring the dog to full health, and a free visit with one of our approved vets after adoption. The majority of dogs at CCRC are obtained from animal control centers, so there is often very little known about their history or even current habits. You can always expect to do some training, regardless of whether you adopt a dog or a puppy, including crate training, house training, and basic manners. CCRC provides a variety of materials and resources to assist you with this, as well as telephone support.
