Wink is around two years old (born early 2011 probably), and he is a very smart little boy. He has come a long way during his foster stay with us. He has learned to play with other dogs for one thing. At first he seemed to have no interest in other dogs. Now he often instigates play. He is house trained and pays close attention when being talked to about anything. He loves his toys and they have been a source of security to him as he learned he was no longer going to be neglected. He was obviously quite neglected and lonely during much of his early life. Now he is leaving that life behind and ready to move forward and become an active member of a family. He does not like being crated or confined so his new family should be prepared to allow him free run of the house. He does not chew up anything or hurt anything being left out. He would enjoy the company of another dog which is what he has here. He will be best with older children (13 or over), no little ones. He would be fine as an only dog too if he gets enough activity. He goes on two walks a day now. He is independent but at the same time loves attention. He has gradually come to like cuddling but he is not needy for it. We have seen him come out of his shell and bloom into a very sweet, smart, fun little guy.
Rescue Group Info...
Animal Allies of Texas is a 501(c)(3) animal advocacy/rescue organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community. Our goal is to build a no-kill shelter on enough land to house not only "adoptable" animals, but "treatable" ones as well - those who need medical care or behavior modification to become adoptable. While working toward this goal, we will also engage in community service and humane education projects to help bring about "humanity championed by thought."
We hold adoption events at one or more locations every week end. Please check the calendar on our web site www.animalalliesoftexas.org for specific locations and times.
All potential adopters must submit an application, either online via our web site www.animalalliesoftexas.org or a paper application at an adoption event. General requirements for adoption: You must live in the DFW/Ft. Worth/North Texas area - we do not adopt outside this area. Dogs must be primarily inside, and cats must be totally inside. Cats must not be declawed. All pets must be spayed/neutered if this has not been done prior to adoption. Adopter must agree to a home visit prior to adoption. Adopter MUST agree to return pet to AAT if he/she can no longer keep the pet or if AAT deems it to be in the best interest of the pet. An adoption agreement detailing these and other requirements must be signed to finalize adoption. Current fees are: dogs-$175, cats-$110. This covers all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping.
Animal Allies of Texas serves all cities and towns within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex (North Texas area). We restrict adoptions to these areas so that we can do home visits to ensure the best placement for all our animals.
