My story

3 leg dog. Needs to be only pet. Crate trained and good inside house with you. Perfect guard dog for inside your home at night...May attack other dogs. Definately cannot do a dog park. Always leash when around other animals just in case....was rescued after being shot (why he lost his rear leg) and was a victim of the dog fighting crowd, so he has multiple scars on his face

Additional adoption info

Our fees vary depending on the type of animal, age, and if applicable, any special needs animals will have amended adoption fees. We may require a vet reference if you have previously owned a pet, or you may be ask to participate in a quick and simple dog care class and/or volunteer here at the shelter for support. We also provide virtual adoptions for our sanctuary division animals who remain here but you get to visit, get updates via internet, and you help provide necessary provisions just for that particular animal, so if you cant have one where you live but still want to be a part of something very rewarding and heartfelt this option may be for you.
