Hans's Story...

Arrival story: I was found as a stray by a group of children and a great guy took me in. He would have kept me but he already has two dogs. I am in good shape according the doctor, great weight. I got 3 treats at the vet because I was so good.

Approximate age / weight: 7 months and 38lbs

Personality: Fun loving -- I will curl up next to your lap or on the floor at your feet...your wish is my command. I already know how to sit, lay down and give a paw. I know to go outside to go potty, too

Forever home:I pretty much would fit in anywhere...I pretty much like everyone and everything... I have not meet any cats yet, but I do not think I would mind them.


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

Hans, a Northville Rhodesian Ridgeback/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Northville, or seeking a Rhodesian Ridgeback/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 Rhodesian Ridgeback/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Rhodesian Ridgeback/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Northville paves the way for another one to be saved.
