Tesla arrived to rescue terrified and pregnant. Unfortunately her puppies did not survive, but now she is on the road to recovery, learning all about the good life in her foster home. Tesla loves people, and wants nothing more than love and affection from her people. She is constantly trying to get hugs from her foster family, and it is so sweet. She lives with 2 kids, ages 8 and 13, and she is so great with them. She loves going on walks, and is starting to show some interest in toys. She is relaxed, with medium energy overall. She is potty trained, and mostly kennel trained; although she does whine and howl for a little bit while when left alone, sl but she settles in. She is silent in her kennel overnight, when in the same room as her family.
Tesla enjoys playing with other dogs as long as she is given slow introductions. Her foster home has 4 other dogs, and she does great with all of them, but especially loves to play with the youngest of the pack. Tesla shows a lot of interest in small critters, so we recommend no cats in her forever home.
Tesla's foster sister is Genevieve, who is also available for adoption. It's rare that we'd suggest adopting two dogs at the same time, but they get along pretty great; so we think they could be adopted together as long as their family continues to work on training both together and separately. Also, Genevieve's fee has been fully sponsored! So you can put that money towards training. :)
If you are looking for a pet that loves her people fiercely, check out sweet Tesla. She will fill you up with all her love!
The best way to show interest in an animal is to submit an adoption application by visiting our website (www.rescuenetworkmn.org).
Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, all age-appropriate vaccinations (Distemper, Rabies, and Bordetella), heartworm and flea/tick preventatives, heartworm test (dogs), FIV/FeLV test (cats), dewormed, and microchip implant (including registration).
Rescue Network is strictly foster based which means all adoptable animals are in a home and there cannot be a meet until an application is submitted and approved. We have no way of knowing the breeds in the animals. All breeds listed are best guess.
