My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

This is Aurora! She is a 4 or more way mixed breed. We don't know what the dad was other than he was a mid-sized brindle colored dog and her mother is a Great Pyrenees German Shepard mix. She has never lived in a house -- has always lived outside on a chain or in a kennel. We'd like to fix that!

If you've never taken in a dog that has been an "outside dog", our experience is that they house train VERY quickly! Aurora is an escape artist, so a securely fenced yard and vigilant supervision is an absolute requirement. She is smart and playful and would likely benefit from a whole lot of TLC and some training. She LOVES being a "Good Girl!", she just doesn't always know what "good" is.

We've listed Aurora as being up-to-date on shots and spayed because while she isn't yet, she will be prior to adoption.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The application process....

After you complete an application, there are several things that we will do:

1. We will check your personal references. Please be sure to list two personal references and include a phone number and an email address. (form asks for one; but I like two)
2. If you do not own your place of residence, we will call your landlord or leasing office. Please check with them first to learn about their pet policy.
3. We will call your veterinarian for a reference. We are looking for a history of annual exams, vaccines maintained routinely, annual heartworm tests and monthly preventatives. We require the following:

* All pets in the home must be spayed or neutered.
* If your pet is not up to date on vaccines, please do not submit the application until you have scheduled an appointment with the vet to get your pets current on their vaccines.

4. If you are a 1st-time pet owner, please include the name and phone number of the veterinarian you plan to use.
5. Be sure to call your Vet(s), giving them permission to speak with us.
6. We may need to do a home visit prior to approving your application, or post-adoption.

If these policies and practices are not acceptable, please do not apply.
