FIRST STEPS: Please visit https://www.save-a-mutt.org/adoption-application/ to fill out an application - a Petfinder Inquiry is not the adoption process. We don't do meet and greets until applications have been approved. All our dogs are located IN Washington State - we are a local foster based rescue and no transport from another state required. :) Thanks!
Meet Bubble Yum. Her foster mom calls her YumYum and adores her. In her foster home, she's learned all kinds of puppy manners. She is crate trained, sleeps with the big dogs on the couch or in an open crate. YumYum has come a long way. She is the sweetest girl. She can be on the reserved side, cautious of new people and situations, but she's the 'smart' girl of the litter - we can see her thinking about every command. She is the dog that crawls into your lap for TV time, relaxing on your lap. Yum is good with the other dogs in the house, and adores the male cat - they cuddle on the couch.
As Yum has become more comfortable in her foster home, she's joined the 'pack' mentality and likes to 'herd' new people. But she is SO responsive to correction and is easy to work with. We started taking her to training classes to become socialized outside her foster's pack. She has gone on pack walks and to parks for classes and is doing great. Yum really does like the company of women, compared to men. She tolerates (hahahah) the husband in the house. She's going on 'adventures' out to stores and does great in the car.
A large fenced yard and other friendly dogs (a must) would be great to show her the ropes, she plays well with the foster's 10# dog and her 100# dog! Miss Yum met kids ranging from 4 to 13. We think an adult home would probably be the best home for her. In a new home they will need the 3-3-3 rule applied and time to show their true side. We would even welcome a slower adoption process, meet and greets at first, with sleep overs. A trial adoption.
Yum is now a year old. She's been in foster for 8 months and we are stunned... she's such a sweet dog given the time. She's only about 55#. Yum needs a home that understands dogs, she's amazing, but will take some time to adjust in a new home. She just made an appearance with Limelight Pet Project and they loved her.
This dog is a spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. She is housebroken and crate trained. She is on pet insurance and cleared orthopedically.
Each dog goes home with a goody bag including collar/leash, toys, chews, Kong, and more. You will receive all medical records, microchip transfer form and other paperwork at the time of adoption.
Save-A-Mutt requires a training contract and $100 refundable deposit depending on previous dog experience. You pick a trainer in your area, and upon completion of a 6+ week training class, we will refund the deposit.
Adoptions typically take place in Stanwood. YumYum is ready for her new home!
Adoption fee is $325.
Save-A-Mutt is a registered 501c3 and half of your adoption fee may be tax deductible.
Please note, we have approximately a 300 mile adoption radius - Portland OR area and Vancouver BC is the farthest north. We don’t ship dogs, once approved you must pick them up in Snohomish County, WA. Canadian adopters must be able to come to Stanwood WA to pick up your puppy.
