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.
Crayola is a 3 year old former 'Momma' who came into our rescue with 10 puppies. She is a very sweet loving girl who was pretty overwhelmed. Her foster home gave her a great place to rest and raise her puppies. Now that they're old enough to go off to their own homes, she is ready to find a place to call her own.
Crayola weighs 56.2lbs. She is a pretty good size girl. She has met a dozen or so dogs and loves them all. She has been super dog friendly when we were out and about on the town..ok, so we were at Starbucks. But still, she did great with people and the dogs who were walking past. She is definitely a dog who could go to the dog park or doggy day camp. She is an option for joining a dog in her new home or living by herself. She is absolutely loving all the attention she is getting from her foster home. She knows how to use the doggy door. She is very sweet and loving without being high high energy. She could definitely keep up with a hike or running with Mom or Dad. But she isn't a dog who has to have those activities every day. She's more a dog who could go on walks with Mom or Dad to satisfy her energy needs on a daily basis.
Crayola is an option for kids who are over the age of 7. We haven't had her around small kids. She is only an option for those who have had a dog in the last 5 years. If there is a home that has done their homework and is prepared to do training and has some life experience with dogs, we will consider.
**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.
