Hi, Homer here. I am looking for a special home to call my own. You see I don't have a whole lot of experience with people so I don't know what to really expect. I really could use someone who has patience & will go slow with me. I will need to be with someone who understands that I am still learning what is like to be around people & so will need time to get to know you. I have been in foster for a couple of months & am still unsure of my foster mom so I will not be won over easily. I do however love playing with other dogs & would prefer a home that has another dog to be with. I would prefer to live with a dog that is bigger than me as it helps me feel protected. I would not do well with a family that has small children as I have a history of reacting badly to sudden movements towards me & I am a flight risk when people open the door. I would do best in a quiet home with experienced dog people who would like taking on a project like me. If this sounds like you & you would be interested in meeting me please send an email to my foster mom at kimwalcott@att.net.

Basic Adoption Requirements:

Adopter must be 18 years of age or older.

For the safety and health of our animals, we do not ship pets.

Pet adoption fees range from $45 to $250. Our adoption fees help to offset the cost of evaluation, housing, feeding and medical care for the thousands of animals needing our help. We do our best to keep our adoption prices reasonable while generating income to support our goal of caring for animals available for adoption until we can place them in a loving home. The adoption fee for each animal varies and is dependent on many factors including: age, size, behavior, medical condition, and public demand.
