Ruff Ruff! My name is Vedder
|Breed:||Boston Terrier/Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix||Color:||Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male||ID#:||3DR-006|
I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.
Vedder is a smaller bully mix (Boston/Staffy is our guess) standing 19 inches tall and weighing about 43 lbs. He came to the rescue emaciated, abused, and with a serious fear of people. Thanks to the diligence of his loving foster home and the generous donations of supporters, Vedder was sent to professional board and train with Bullyhead Dog Obedience in August to work on his confidence and socialization skills, where he excelled.
Vedder is slow to meet new people, but lives like any other pet in his foster home, which includes furry siblings. He is housebroken and crate trained, he walks wonderfully on a leash, and knows most basic commands (sit, down, stay, down in motion, heel with auto sit, come when called, leave it, etc.).
LOVES: obedience work, walks, car rides, fruits and veggies, sleeping, having his people around
HATES: loud noises, fast movements, pineapple, cold, chain-link fences (although, we are working on that one)
We'd prefer he go to someone with some sort of handling knowledge, but his foster and trainer are willing to work with a new adopter for as long as needed to make the transition smooth and successful for all parties.
Vedder is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, Heartworm negative. His adoption includes his collar, leash and a disaster kit (first aid, info pack, emergency decal). His foster parents also have a dog bed and his favorite toys they would like him to go home with. To apply to adopt Vedder, visit: www.disasterdogsrescue.weebly.com/adopt
Please share him with others and feel free to email us with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org

Why adopt from 3DR?
Per our mission, our dogs receive extra care. All of our dogs receive their DA2PP, Bordetella, Rabies, are dewormed, altered, heartworm tested/treated, and microchipped. They are thoroughly examined to determine if additional care is needed as well. We try to administer monthly heartworm preventative and flea/tick preventative to all of our dogs (funding dependent).
We also want to help our dogs become well socialized, adjusted and balanced dogs. We encourage our fosters to attend free weekly training classes with their foster dog. We also have a Facebook group page for all fosters, adopters and volunteers to learn about what is going on at 3DR, ask questions, and share resources. We are constantly available by phone, text, email, Facebook to answer questions and address issues. A secure, happy foster means a better environment for the foster dogs, means a better dog for adoption. Our goal is to place dogs PERMANENTLY.
We are a foster based rescue, so to meet a dog, please email us at email@example.com
Any adoption starts with our online application (www.disasterdogsrescue.weebly.com/adopt) .
From there, an adoption coordinator will contact you and review your application, household and lifestyle. They will discuss the dog you are interested in and you can both decide whether that dog is one that could work for you!
Next, a volunteer will set up an appointment for a home visit. The purpose of a home visit is to confirm that the information about your home and yard on the application are accurate. Some dogs will require a fenced yard, so we must confirm that your yard is fenced. We also want to confirm that the pets you list in your application are present, well cared for, and well socialized.
We may, at this time, also bring the dog you are interested in for a meet and greet. A meet and greet is where we help introduce the dog to your family. The way new dogs are introduced to each other is vital to their future together, so we take extra care to make sure your new dog and current dog get off on the right foot. We also assist children in how to approach and act with the dog and can provide information on dog/cat introductions.
After all of this is adoption day! A contract is signed and your new family member is all yours!
