Ben's Story...

Arrival story: Hi there! My name is Ben and I was saved by a good samaritan from the streets of Detroit. I am safe and warm now. I know that I am one of the lucky ones!

Approximate age / weight: I'm about 60lbs and maybe 3-4 years old

Personality: I'm a handsome shepherd mix boy with a gentle soul, just hoping for a wonderful family to see me on petfinder and want to make me their very own dog. I can't hardly wait to find my forever family that will play with me, love me, and make sure I'm well taken care of forever. Just look into my eyes... you can see that I am desperate for a family to call my own. It's what every dog wants!

I am in a temporary foster home but it is a bit crowded and will need to find another place soon. I'm living with cats and dogs and getting along just fine with them all. I do NOT have a dominant personality so I would probably have an easy adjustment into home life.

I'm up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered and ready to be your new best buddy. The rest is up to you. What are you waiting for?

Forever home: I would probably fit into many situations. I'm friendly and gentle but would love walks and playtime, like all dogs.

Pre-Adoption Application: To be considered for a dog, it is best to submit a pre-adoption application. The Pre-Adoption Application can be downloaded from our website - Just complete the application and email it back to

Waggin' Tails Adoption Information: Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue has a standard adoption fee of $175 for adult dogs. Different adoption fees apply for older dogs, small breeds and puppies - $100 for senior dogs (9 years +), $275 for small breed dogs and $200 for puppies plus a $50 deposit which is returned upon proof of spay/neuter at six months of age.
Our adoption process includes an application, vet reference checks, and a home visit.

We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check for the dates of our next adoption events. To meet a dog in person, please see our event calendar for the latest information. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group).

Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ben, a Northville German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Northville, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Northville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Northville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Northville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Northville paves the way for another one to be saved.
