I am good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Merlin (adoption pending)'s Story...
NOTE: The picture is Merlin's before picture on the first day we rescued him. We will update soon with his new photo from his hair cut. He is good with everyone he's met so far and is super friendly and sweet. He is house and crate trained and lived with another dog. He's an older boy, around 9 years old, but he doesn't act it at all (Bichons never do act old!). He has a LOT of life in him and is ready to be your buddy. He will need regular grooming, which he clearly didn't receive from his first owner. Merlin's adoption is $150 and covers his vetting.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION Our Official Website.
All of our dogs are or will be spayed or neutered prior to leaving rescue or shortly after. All adoption donations REQUIRE spay or neuter. Our dogs receive a distemper shot(s), rabies, and worming (we recommend having your vet do a fecal to ensure there are no parasites left) ether before they leave or included with surgery if done at our preferred vet clinics. We treat for fleas as needed and provide our foster dogs with heartworm medication. You will receive a medical record detailing what your dog has received, which may include microchipping.
Donations are non-refundable, however, we do offer a ten day trial, which must be stated on your application. Our pets may come with an offer for insurance. Please ask for details.
We strongly suggest training for all dogs to help create a bond between companion and owner. We can recommend trainers in and around Northwest Indiana.
ABRA dogs are fed well and we recommend premium dog food such as Canidae, Wellness, Evo, Earthborn, Kirkland (sold only at Costco) and a raw food diet. We highly
encourage adopters to keep their new dog on a high quality food.
Our pregnant dogs are fed raw food and we start newborn puppies on raw as well. We believe the health of your animal is dictated by how well it is treated, what it is fed, an appropriate vaccine or holistic prevention, and how it is socialized. All Breeds are good breeds!
We receive many dogs from dog auction, so any dog over the age of two that comes from a dog auction is examined for a teeth cleaning prior to adoption.
Our adoption donations vary and are based on the overall cost of the dog and the expenses we inherit when they come from shelters or the dog auction. Visit our website for more information and an application
