Jackson's Story...

Arrival story: Jackson was pulled from a rural shelter before being sold for research purposes.

Approximate age / weight: Three to four (3-4) months old and 20 lbs.

Personality: Jackson is settling into his foster home with ease! He is already sleeping through the night. He is very good about going into his crate, only whined in protest a couple of times. In fact, he has even started to go into his crate on his own at times.

Jackson, like all pups, likes to chew but is easily redirected with a chew toy. He is not constantly looking for things to chew though.

He is currently living with 2 other dogs and 2 small children (2 and 4 yrs. old). Jackson is great with the kids. A little jumpy at times but not bad and nothing that a little training can't fix. As for the other dogs, it is also going great! He gets along well with the older, sometimes cranky, resident dogs. He respects and readily accepts their positions as the top dogs in the house.

All in all, his foster mom lovingly refers to him as a terrific puppy!!

Forever home:Although classified as a moderately active puppy, please keep in mind he is a puppy. As with any puppy, Jackson will need lots of exercise, training and socialization to help ensure he grows into a well adjusted, well behaved dog. Currently he is doing very well with potty training but will need a family willing to continue to work with him until he can fully trusted.


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

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