Our rescue will be at the Palo Alto Pet Food Express Saturday, August 26th and Sunday, August 27th from 12pm-4pm. See individual dogs to see who will be attending as not all dogs will be attending the event. 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, August 12th and August 13th from 12pm-4pm 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.
Eggo is a 2 year old MaltiPoo who weighs about 10lbs. He was rescued from the what is called the city shelter in Korea. Many dogs are sold to the meat market from here or euthanized. Our friends in Korea always keep tabs on dogs here and try to rescue as many as they can and Eggo was one of them. He has a non-shedding coat that is an option for those who have allergies or simply want a dog who doesn't shed. However, he will require grooming.
In many ways Eggo is like a spoiled toddler. He likes things his way and he needs someone who won't give into him but instead will have rules. He doesn't instantly bond. It takes time. The first few days can be rough and he really should just be ignored and allowed to figure out what's going on---more time spent in containment (either xpen or crate) and taken for long walks to get out his energy. He will need that strong owner who sets boundaries and has limits with him but isn't the type of owner who gives up and throws in the towel. He's most likely never going to be that dog who is friendly with everyone. He grows to love his people but he's not all about strangers. If you're a home that isn't willing to put him away when others come over, then he's not a great option.
Eggo has lived with other dogs. The dog he has done best with is a really laid back dog who doesn't have dominant tendencies and doesn't mind if he acts large and in charge. He doesn't do well with those dogs who challenge him. He may be small but he is mighty. He's an ideal candidate to be someone's one and only dog.
Eggo is not an option for kids. Eggo needs an experienced owner.
**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.
