ACORN has an ADOPTION PENDING. We are no longer accepting applications for Acorn.
Acorn has found her home but she hopes you will consider another Lucky Puppy for adoption!!
Name: Acorn Breed: Retriever/terrier mix
Approximate Age: 9-10 weeks as of 9/30/16 SEX: female
Approximate Weight: 8 pounds as of 9/30/16
Has Lived With: dogs
Currently Living at: A scary shelter in rural South Carolina. Acorn can't wait to come to DC and meet her forever family!
Special Adoption Considerations: Need Frequent Potty Breaks, Socialization, Commitment to Spay by 6 Months.
Meet Acorn! This beautiful 9-10-week-old retriever/terrier mix girl can't wait to meet you! As sweet as can be and around 8 pounds, she is very kind, energetic and affectionate toward everyone she meets! She gets along well with dogs, but we haven't had a chance to see her interact with kids or cats yet. If you have them, let us know, and we'll find out more.
Acorn has a playful, active and curious personality and will need mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis.
Acorn is still a puppy, and she will need a committed owner to provide training and exercise to be a well-behaved dog.
Like most puppies, Acorn will need to work on her housetraining. Acorn will also need to go to obedience school so she can grow into a well-socialized dog!
Just remember, I'm an active little lady, so I'll need someone keepin' an eye out for me during the day. I'm bummed to say if you work a 9-5 job outside the home, I may not be the best fit for you and if you want to adopt you'll need to provide proof of a multi-times a day dog walker to come visit me while you are gone!
Due to a puppy's need for attention and frequent bathroom excursions, we do not adopt dogs under 5 months of age to homes where no one is home during the day. This means no 9-5ers, unless you commit to hiring a dog walker to come multiple times a day.
Acorn is not old enough to have had all of her vaccines. It will be your responsibility, as the adopter, to ensure that the remaining puppy vaccines are given at the appropriate time. Please also keep in mind that, until your puppy is fully vaccinated, she is at greater risk for illness than an adult dog.
Due to her young age, Acorn has not yet been spayed. As part of the adoption contract, it will be your responsibility, as the adopter, to ensure that this is done no later than 2/1/16.
Acorn is dreaming of finding a warm and loving forever home! All she needs is a caring person or family to give her all the love and care (and treats!) she deserves!
The adoption fee for this dog is $400, which includes the cost of routine vetting and transport from the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Emily Jagdmann at!
