Name: Bugsy

DOB: 07/16/2011

Adoption Fee: $50

I am a sweet boy who loves attention and is eager to please!  I love to run and play, 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 2x 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's will require a fenced yard as well as obedience training completed after adoption.  This will help him with her 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).





About Going To The Dogs Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Going To The Dogs Rescue is a 501c3 all breed rescue dedicated to helping homeless pets find Forever homes. We are dedicated to finding the right match that we feel will be in the best interest of the dogs we have saved.
We rescue locally as well as out of state as needed. We never euthanize for space or lack of applications. We will keep a dog for a year if that is what it takes which sets us apart from many shelters and rescues in our area.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees range anywhere from $100-400 depending on age, and costs involved in rescuing the particular animal. Puppies cost more because, well, they cost more! They are susceptible to more diseases, need more vaccines, and have more needs. We generally do not recover 100% of what we pay to care for these animals, so please keep this in mind when looking at our fees. If you were to get a "free" animal you would EASILY spend $400+ just to get the dog "up to date" on all medical procedures our rescue dogs already have! Plus you have a limited guarantee on major medical issues on dogs you adopt through us.

IMPORTANT: If you are interested in adopting a dog, you MUST fill out an application! We do NOT consider you for adoption until this is done. We dont want to waste your time, and the dogs time and we have this adoption procedure in place simply to prevent this. We appreciate your understanding in this procedure!
