I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Thorton is a 1 yr young and a very smart boy! He is very obedient and is eager to please his people. Thorton is approximately 60 lbs and a high energy boy who loves his exercise and play time. Thorton gets along well with other dogs, big and small dogs and would love to have a family of his own who would continue with obedience training as he listens so well. He's very affectionate and enjoys cuddle time too. Thorton has learned the basics like sit, shake a paw and to come when he's called. This boy is wonderful! He's great on the leash and loves people. Thorton will make a wonderful addition to an active family. Thorton is neutered, up to date on his shots and is microchipped. If your interested in adopting or would like more information, contact Michelle at email@example.com
Bow Wow Rescue is a small, entirely volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing public education, veterinary care and forever homes for abused, neglected and/or abandoned animals. Bow Wow Rescue is NOT taking in any more dogs due to the high numbers of dogs needing out of the pound and owner surrenders. We are hopeful that some of the wonderful foster dogs that need loving homes move on. Once we move a few foster dogs we will reopen our intake.
Our Adoption Process...
To adopt a dog from Bow Wow Rescue, you must fill out an adoption application, including one veterinary and two personal references. All animals will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and given a health check prior to being placed in their new home. The dog will be evaluated to ensure a suitable match between family and dog. We will then arrange to meet with you for a home visit. We require a fenced yard and do not adopt out to families with children under the age of eight.. All family members must be in agreement about adopting a dog, and all family members, including your dog(s) must be present during the visit. We do not adopt dogs to homes with intact pets, unless for medical reasons. We also will require landlord permission to have a pet if you are in a rental situation. Our donation required for adoptions is $350. For a senior or special needs dog, the donation is $150. **100% of adoption donations go towards spaying, neutering, medical care and fostering expenses of the dogs prior to adoption.**
