Litter Name: National Parks Litter
Hi! My name is Shenandoah, and I’m the mom of the National Parks litter. I am 2-3 years old and weigh about 50 lbs. I’ve been here in Wisconsin for a few weeks enjoying some well deserved maternity leave. You see, I was taking care of my 11 (yes, 11) puppies. You might see them on the Tailwaggers 911 web site. They are pretty cute, I must say! But now, I am told that it’s time for me to find my forever family, and I can’t wait.
I thought you might want to know a little about me (besides the fact that I’m beautiful… you can see that in my pictures!). My foster mom calls me a sweet lover. I guess that’s because I follow her around, and like nothing more than to get some petting and attention. I am still pretty scared of the world, so I need a family that will not baby me, but help me gain the confidence I really want to learn. I'm still figuring out that scary things will still happen, but there won't be any more bad times. I love to sit beside you and snuggle up, so if you are wanting a great snuggle partner, look no further. When I feel comfortable, I’ve shown that I am a typical young dog. I love to play with my furry foster siblings, especially when we can run around the yard! I do like to come back to my foster mom for reassurance every few minutes when I’m playing. It’s just good to know that I’m always safe! I have lots of energy, but I’m not one of those pups that needs a 10 mile run each day – a good walk, along with some play time, and I’m good for the day. I love to play with toys, and I LOVE to chew. So far though, I’ve been a good listener, and only chewed the things I’m allowed to, like dog toys and bones.
I’ve also gained some weight since arriving in Wisconsin. Man, my foster family feeds me some good chow! I was super thin, having given my all to my puppies. Now I’m sleek, and beautiful. I’m still super food motivated, however, so that will help when we go to class to learn basic manners. Yea, about those basic things....I’m just learning. I didn’t know anything when I got here, so I’m starting at the beginning with sit and down. I’ll get there, I promise! I’m eager to learn.
I currently live with older kids (youngest is 9), 4 other dogs and a cat. I love the company of my furry friends, but I would be OK as an only dog. I’m flexible that way. The cat – well, I wouldn’t call us friends, but we have an agreement. He doesn’t run, and I won’t chase. When he does run, I sometimes chase him, but it’s all in fun. I just want to play. At night we have been found snuggled up next to foster mom together, so we have shown that we can get along.
So are you interested? If so, put in your application to meet me. I can’t wait!
Adoption Fee: $400.00
We are a Wisconsin state licensed dog rescue -WI# 402433
***We do not have a central adoption center at this time. All our dogs are in private foster homes within WI. At this time we only place our dogs in areas of WI. The breed of our dogs is our best guess with the help of our veterinarians.
If you are adopting an adult dog, which we consider 6 months of age or older, your adoption fee includes the following:
Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper shots, dewormed, flea & tick preventative, heartworm tested and microchipped.
If you are adopting a dog younger than 6 months of age, the dog will be up to date on the shots as per the dogs age. The dog will be dewormed, flea/tick preventative and microchipped. We only spay/neuter our dogs by 6 months of age. If you decide to adopt a younger dog than 6 months of age, they will need to be spayed/neutered at one of our preferred clinics. This will be determined by your contract along with the month they should have their surgery. This is included in your adoption fee.
Once you are approved with our rescue, you can meet any one of our dogs within the fosters home. If you are interested in the dog you met, you can take the dog home under our mandatory foster to adopt program. You receive 5 days to see if the dog is the right fit for your home.
If it is, we will conduct the home visit and finalize adoption. If it is not, it is returned to the foster. We are happy to find you another dog that meets your needs in your home.
If a dog is listed as PENDING, a family has met the dog and planning on adopting the dog after the home visit has been conducted. We always suggest sending in an application for a dog because there are times where the dogs are given back to us under the foster to adopt program. There are many reasons dogs are returned but normally it just was not the right fit for all.
Please go to WWW.TAILWAGGERS911.COM under HOW TO ADOPT . We have an online application that is very easy to fill out.
