Adopting A Shelter Dog
These dogs come without background histories/ past medical information. We present these dogs as we have observed in relationship to age, size, breed, behavior, housebreaking, crate training, good with children, cats, dogs, and strangers. Dogs may present themselves differently in different environments, therefore The Dog Spot Rescue, their agents, volunteers, can not guarantee behavior, age, size expectations, breed, house Training, destructive behavior tendencies, and/or medical issues. All dogs from shelters have been subjected to pathogens from the shelter level which can materialize into disease in the future. Each adopter must observe for themselves pre-adoption and make decisions for themselves the suitability of said dog and their tolerance levels for transitional time when adopting a shelter dog. We ask that each adopter take their time when making the choice to bring home a rescued dog.
Meet Chewbacca. He is about three years old, 70 pounds and looking for that home and heart to call his own. Came from a hoarder situation and was being euthanizedd down in Lancaster when we were asked to step in. We have worked with him for a year and he is ready to find his person. He will still need patience and love to help open up the big world to him but he walks well on a leash, tail wags, loves treats and is very good in the house. Currently we think he should be in an adult only home. He is good with other dogs.
If interested please fill out an application at email@example.com and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment. All dogs are met in elk grove, Ca
Adoption is $400 and includes his neuter, rabies, worming, shots, heartworm test and bordatella vaccine. All dogs go home on a two week trial.
Your Adoption Fee covers the following expenses: Spay/Neuter, DHLPP, Bordatella, Rabies (if age appropriate), De-worming and Frontline/Advantage
Please Note: Shelter/rescue dogs have been exposed to many pathogens such as kennel cough, parasites, diseases and conditions some of which may not have been discovered prior to adoption. Any dog that shows symptoms here at TDS are routinely identified, taken for tests and treatment. Our vet bills can exceed $10,000 a month. However, without symptoms, we may miss a disease, or pre-existing condition or parasite. Consider carefully if you have the tolerance for these possibilities. We consider, you, the adopters, the last leg of the rescue process.
