My story

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


Ed's perfect person would need to be willing to visit with him to get to know him before taking him home to foster.

Ed is incredibly smart and will be fine as an only dog or with other dogs. He really loves belly rubs and hanging out on the couch with someone. He is timid and unsure of humans. Ed is uneasy with the leash however he is working with a volunteer trainer to get past this.

From his first foster mom: "He is crate trained (He is happy & easily goes into his crate) & house trained. He needs a lot of mental stimulation and to release a lot of energy. I found it worked well if he was only out for 30-45 min at a time then back in his crate for an hour or two then repeat all day long. He can be a bit much for other dogs who don't appreciate his energy level. Ed is also an excellent cuddle buddy once he trusts you.

Ed's DOB is 6/17/2022 and he weighs about 41lbs.

All of our rescues are rehabilitated and once healthy are available for an adoption fee of $95 for cats and dogs. This fee includes:

• Extensive medical health check by a licensed veterinarian
• Up to date on all vaccinations. Puppies/kittens may require some additional booster shots which we will pay for if coordinated through us and our veterinarian
• Spayed/Neutered
• Microchipped
• 30 day pet health guarantee for local adoptions only (*Must follow process provided at time of adoption.)
• 30 day money back guarantee

Our goal is to find loving homes for all our rescued animals. Because we care about our rescues and their future, some animals have certain new family requirements before they can be released to their new home. Requirements for adoption could include the following:

• Fenced yard (required for most dogs) and home inspection for all animals; we will complete an onsite fence/home check prior to completing the adoption if possible. *Fenced yard required. (We do not accept invisible fences.)
• Veterinary reference for previous pet owners (must be/have been current on vaccinations and heartworm prevention)
• If no previous veterinary history, purchase of 3 months of heartworm prevention
• If renting, verification with Landlord on acceptability of pets and any restrictions, pet deposit, etc.
• Meet and greet with current pets to ensure compatibility.

Note: We will call your current/previous veterinarian to verify that you have a history of providing vaccinations and heartworm prevention for your animal(s). We do a physical home/fence inspection prior to completing the adoption if a fence is required, or we may request a home video.
