We are looking to place this dog within a 2.5 hour radius of Washington, DC but we can also consider other areas IF we have a volunteer that can accomplish a home visit and we have a safety net. Other areas could be North Carolina, southern areas of Virginia, Pittsburgh, PA area, Denver, CO area, San Diego area, San Francisco Area, Portland area and Seattle area.
Bindi and her sister Rika are somewhat bonded and ideally we would like to place them in the same home. However, we will consider splitting them up but ONLY if an interested family/person already has a young, smallish playful dog in their home. NEITHER RIKA NOR BINDI WOULD DO WELL AS AN ONLY DOG.
Bindi was rescued from the Okinawa Prefecture Animal Control Center in Okinawa Japan along with 2 siblings. She is now being fostered in the DC area with her sister Rika. Although they get along great and spend most of their time together, we don't feel that they are bonded and could go to separate homes with other young, small to medium sized dogs. Bindi is the more confident of the two pups and loves to play and she doesn't have much fear. She is a big dog in a small dogs body. She has a little more of the "doxie" type of body than Rika and you can see it in her legs. Bindi is house broken and crate trained and is estimated in the 8 month old range. She's good about chewing on toys but like any puppy, will sometimes slip up and chew on something she isn't supposed to. Bindi is being fostered with her sister with elementary school aged children and she's good with them. She will jump up though and will use her mouth when playing so probably children 6+ would be best. She has not been cat tested. Bindi is fully vetted with all vaccinations, micro-chip, spay, heart worm preventatives, flea/tick preventatives and heart worm negative. Her adoption fee is $500 but if a family is interested in adopting both Bindi and Rika (our first choice), we will reduce the adoption fee to $850/pair.
