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, March 18th from 1-4pm and Sunday, March 19th 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.
Jaguar is a 1 year old Terrier mix. She weighs 11lbs. She has all these white specks all over her face and it makes her look old. But her teeth all the way back are bright white and she's a young girl. She's a happy happy girl. She is ready to race up and meet you and love you instantly. She is full of spirit. She gets along well with other dogs. She is currently living with other dogs and she's a hit with everyone. She is an option to go to the dog park or doggy day camp. If there's a friend at home, they'll have a blast playing.
Jaguar is not a nuisance barker. She could be an option for living in an apartment or condo setting. She could be an option for going to work with Mom or Dad. She would be a meeter or greeter in the office. Jaguar knows how to use a doggy door. She also sleeps in a crate at night. She was an owner surrender to our rescue when her family was moving and couldn't take her with them.
Jaguar is only an option for a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. If there are kids they need to be over the age of 7. If the adults have recent dog experience (pet sitting, etc) and have a thorough application but haven't owned a dog in the last 3 years, we will consider very thorough applications only. She is not an option for a home with cats.
**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.
