Story
Meet Gizmo Giblet! 6 years old and 14lbs. This adorable pup prefers to be the only child so a home with human kids will not be considered for his adoption. Gizmo is the dog for you if you’re looking for a boy that wants to be beside you, no matter what! You understand that he communicates by growling along with nasty comments, and you don’t mind that he will bark and scratch at doors to get your attention when you leave him. He will also help keep friends and family away by barking, growling and snapping at them when they get close to you. He is a happy and playful boy that loves squeak toys and will insist on sleeping beside you and may pee in your bed Interested in becoming a forever home for Gizmo Giblets? Fill out our online adoption application: http://www.friendswithfourpaws.org/adoption-form.html This is the first step in our process, and we don't go any further without an application. Find more adoptable pets, news and information on Instagram @friendswithfourpaws or our Facebook page Friends with Four Paws . We put a lot of time and energy into processing our adoptions to find our babies the best fit home for them and you. Please do not submit an application if you are not serious about adopting Gizmo Giblets. We are so excited to work with you to find you a new forever friend, and Gizmo Giblets the perfect forever home, and appreciate you working with us. For immediate consideration, please attach your application to the initial inquiry to help us expedite the process. Our adoption fee is $525. This includes their spay/neuter surgery, full (age appropriate) vaccinations, microchip insertion and registration, deworming, heartworm testing and prevention, flea and tick prevention and travel expenses. All of our dogs are rescued from local shelters and the general public. Each dog is then placed in a foster home where he/she is kept for quarantine, to ensure if the dog gets sick it can receive proper treatment. We have foster homes in the NJ/NY area waiting to receive their fosters. Once an animal has received an application or there's an adopter interested, we make arrangements for transport.

Story
Meet Charm! Charm is estimated around 3 years old and is 21 pounds. Charm sure looks a lot like a shih tzu but may have another breed like a small wire hair terrier as well. Charm is very sweet, low maintenance, and laid back! She can be a bit shy at first in new places but is very calm and opens up more with time. Charm has gotten along with all the doggy friends she has met. She is house trained, crate trained but does still need more help on a leash to make walks fun and exciting! Charm had blood work and a dental cleaning at her recent vet visit. Interested in becoming a forever home for Charm? For immediate consideration, please fill out our online adoption application: http://www.friendswithfourpaws.org/adoption-form.html This is the first step in our process, and we DO NOT go any further without an application. If there are multiple dogs that you are interested in, please fill out an application for each dog. This does not include bonded pairs, one application will be fine. We have different adoption coordinators working with different dogs, and your application may be missed if you only apply once.

Meet Cadet! Cadet is 4 months old and weighs 15 pounds. We are not exactly sure what Cadet is mixed with but his mom looks a lot like a Shih Tzu mix, so probably that and a small wire hair terrier breed. Cadet can be just a bit shy at first in new places and with new people but once he settles in, he loves to play! Cadet will use the doggy door, and does very well in a crate. He loves all the doggy friends he has met and lights up when he gets to run and do puppy things. Cadet could use some help on a leash still to make walks fun and exciting.

Story
Gwennie Beez Louise is the sweetest little girl that has never done anything wrong in her life. Adopter must be EPIC. She has only peed in the house one time and it was in the kitchen on the tile after she didn't get to go out all day. She won't go out if it's raining but she will hold it until the weather clears. She's a soccer player and basketball enthusiast. She has never been trained but walks easily off leash. She detests smokers and likes a tidy house. The adoption fee would be simply to buy a luxury package for her before she goes and get her spayed possibly. I want her to go to a home with other dogs and not ever be lonely. I'm serious and firm on that.... You can take her if you agree she will literally never be lonely, ever. I want nothing more than to give her the best she can possibly have in life and right now I'm not capable of doing that for her. She's such a sweet good social loving little girl that deserves a lot more than what I have.

Story
Meet Kramer, the extraordinary 6-year-old Shih Tzu hailing from Alabama! Despite facing challenges with his vision, Kramer is just like any other dog.. This sweet, playful, very well behaved and oh-so-smart little man is ready to steal your heart.  Picture this: Kramer, with his tail wagging and a playful glint in his eyes, his joy knows no limits when he entices his foster mom to join him in a game of fetch or tug of war.  Kramer embraces life with enthusiasm, enjoying cuddles, playtime with squeaky toys, and leisurely strolls with his human companions. Whether he's engaging in hardcore play sessions or snuggling up for a nap, Kramer's affectionate nature shines through.  While he thrives as the center of attention, Kramer would also enjoy the company of a laid-back dog friend who understands his social cues. Although cats might not be his cup of tea due to his prey drive, with patient introductions, Kramer is sure to win over any new animal friends. With ongoing support from Clarity K9, Kramer has made remarkable progress and is ready to continue his journey with a loving forever family. His medical needs are manageable with eye drops once or twice daily for his dry eye, along with regular vet check-ups to ensure his health and happiness.   We envision Kramer finding his perfect match in a home with older children, where he can shower them with love and affection while continuing to bring joy and laughter to his new family. Vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on preventive care, Kramer is the epitome of a perfect companion waiting to brighten your days. Don't miss the chance to welcome this remarkable pup into your life! Vaccinated for rabies, DA2PP, and bordetella. Heartworm negative, neutered, and microchipped. Up to date on flea, tick, and heartworm prevention. To apply for Kramer, visit our website (www.waggytailrescue.org) for an adoption application. It is important to fill out an application as soon as possible for consideration, and we require a complete application for you to meet an animal. We are currently unable to respond to general email inquiries as an all-volunteer run rescue. If the animal is on our website, they are still available. Waggytail Rescue CANNOT guarantee the exact age of any adoptable dog, or final size of any of our adoptable puppies. We rely on the information provided to us by veterinarians, shelters, owner surrenders and other circumstances bringing the dog into our rescue. Adoptions: adopt@waggytailrescue.org ##1966622##
