Ready to Apply?
You will want to have your veterinary and/or personal reference information handy, as well as landlord information if you are a renter, to fill out the application completely.
• We will not pursue an incomplete application
• Once complete, you can speed up process by contacting your vet's office and giving them permission to release information. We may dismiss the application if this is not completed.
• Volunteers handle dozens of applications at a time so we do not guarantee contact with everyone. We try our best, but we are working around jobs, kids, and of course, dogs.
•Adoptions generally take longer than 4 days to process but there is no set time frame. We do the best we can as a non-profit, so please be patient.
Adoption Fee: $50
I am a sweet boy who loves attention and is eager to please! I love to run and play, and I love to go for hikes, but I am also a lap-loving snuggler who would watch TV with you for hours. I am not a big barker or noise-maker; I am rather quiet and just want your attention and love whenever you can give it to me.
I currently eat tiwce a day, I am house trained and am also crate/kennel trained.
As sweet as I am with humans, I am in need of a home with no other dogs because I am a resource guarder. What is that? It means that because of my past and lack of training early on in my development, I tend to value all of my resources so much that I guard them and do not want others to have them. If another dog were to challenge me on that, I would disagree and fight over it, so I just prefer not to share my treasured humans, food, and toys.
Other stuff my foster parents think is important for you to know: I like to make my bed like a child makes forts. I am goofy about my nesting and my foster parents can't stop laughing when I do it.
My adoption fee is $50 which covers all of my medical care including neuter, microchip, rabies, vaccinations, and de-wormers.
Bugsy will require a fenced yard, as well as obedience training completed after adoption. This will help him with manners and bonding with his new family to ensure he stays a lifelong pet! The bonus part of this is GTTD will refund the $50 adoption fee if you complete training with a positive reinforcement trainer (no aversive/correction based training).
