KayDee does great in a car though she may need encouragement to jump into one. On lead she has quickly gotten used to heeling though she occasionally needs reminders, especially when something startles her or she's excited. She has learned quite a few other simple commands and simply needs her new family to continue with her training.
Dogs? KayDee gets along great with the large dogs in her foster home. Little dogs are not a problem with her either but with her size and puppy personality she can be a bit overwhelming to some. She met a few cats at the vet's office and actually ignored them so she may be good with cats that are not afraid of dogs.
We are looking for a home for KayDee where the people have a lot of experience with herding breeds and are committed to continue her training and and give her "jobs" to do. If you think you might just be KayDee's new family, please read onto learn how to start the application process and meet this beautiful young thing.
All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.
Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.
