Ruff Ruff! My name is Foxy
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Female|
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Hi! My name is Foxy and I am a 5 pound bundle of attitude! My rescuers think I am about 8 to 9 years old, but they aren't sure. I was a breeder in a puppy mill and, unfortunately, it has left its mark. I will need an experienced adopter because I can be very defensive and guarded until I know I can trust you. Once I know I can trust you, I am the sweetest little dog, unless I feel trapped and then I still freak out a little bit. I may never be what you would call a cuddly dog, but I do like to play peek a boo and get scritches. I do enjoy car rides and short walks. I am kennel trained, can use a dog door and will use a pee pad if I don't have access to the outdoors. I get along with other animals, as long as they realize I am the boss! I am wary of new people and children, but when treats are involved, I will tolerate both. My adoption fee of $200 includes my spay, dental, microchipping, heartworm test, and all vaccinations, If you would like to meet me, please visit www.softplacetoland.org and fill out an application!

Rescue Group Info...
A Soft Place To Land, Inc. was founded in 2010 by two dog lovers and best friends. We are a small foster home-based rescue, so we do not have a shelter facility. As former breeders of English Springer Spaniels, we realized there were too many dogs out there without homes - why breed more dogs?! So we decided to rescue retired breeders so they would not be euthanized. Our hope is that eventually, through awareness of the plight of puppy mill dogs, more people will choose to adopt a pet instead of purchasing a pet through a pet store - making puppy mills a thing of the past!
We have a "donate" button on our web site. We also have a wish list on Amazon.com. We always need cleaning items, old bedding, old towels, dog beds, gas cards, and just about anything else you can think of!
We are having a meet and greets at the following locations
Step 1: Fill out an adoption application.
Step 2: Someone from A Soft Place To Land will contact you to set up a home visit and interview. After the home visit applicants and the rescue can take up to 24 hours to decide if the dog is the right fit.
Step 3: When approved, sign adoption contract and pay adoption fees.
Adoption fees vary from dog to dog, but are roughly as follows:
Dogs under 6 months of age - $300
Dog from 6 months to 1 years - $250
Dogs 1 year to 7 years - $150 - $225
Dogs over 7 years - $100 - $150
Dogs over 10 years $50
