Palo Alto, CA

 

Our rescue will be at the Palo Alto Pet Food Express Saturday, October 22nd from 1-4pm and Sunday, October 23rd from 12-3pm. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.
* If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. * We do not have a facility. All dogs live in foster homes. Arrangements to meet dogs occur after an approved application has been accepted. * We do not ship our dogs for any reason. * Our adoption fee is $400 for each dog/puppy. * If it is on a weekend of our adoptions, follow us on @DPSRescue on Twitter to get real time updates on our adoptions. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescue


This dog will be at Palo Alto Pet Food Express on Saturday, October 22nd from 1-4pm and Sunday, October 23rd from 12-3pm or until adopted. However, we do meet with those who submit an application and are approved just prior to the event (by invitation only) and they are given the first opportunity to adopt. If you are interested in one of our dogs, we recommend filling out an application prior to the event to be considered. Applications submitted within 24 hours of the event may not necessarily be reviewed.

Chino is a 3 year old Schnoodle mix. He may have some Pomeranian in him as well. He had a long coat that had to be completely shaved down. It will grow in and he will be a completely different looking dog but it's going to take a few months. He will need regular grooming once his coat grows in. Chino was turned into our rescue. For a year he ran around a neighborhood and people fed him but no one took him in. Finally, a woman took him in and called our rescue. Poor guy. He'd had a rough time...He is ready now to settle into his permanent home and be loved forever. His is truly a rescue story for the ages.
Chino is a little shy at first. He needs a home that is ok with him not jumping all over them and not demanding attention but rather maybe he'll just hang out in the corner or just out of reach. His new family has to earn his trust. Now, if it's like his foster home, who he adores and loves, he jumps all over them. He gives them kisses. He finally has decided that they are his people. It's sad because we can't explain that they're just his temporary people but they're helping to find his forever people.
Chino gets along well with other dogs. He is fostered with other dogs and obviously part of his survival on the streets was learning to get along with everyone. Chino is not a nuisance barker. A crate has proven to be his friend as long as his home doesn't mind that he'll hide in there initially and if that means for a day or two or three, just letting him. Let him set his own pace. It's how a family will earn his trust. Chino is also an option to live with cats.
Chino is an only an option for a home that has had a dog of their own in the last 3 years. He is only an option for kids who are over the age of 10 and have dog experience (as in a dog of their own and not one that just visits).


**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)
**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
