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 Pretty Hannah. Hannah is about 1 1/2 - 3 years old, about 65 lbs, and appears to be a purebred German Shepherd. She came from a shelter with no known history. She was very underweight and we have spent the last two months putting weight on her. She looks fabulous and healthy now! Hannah is a really good girl. She does still need training as she can jump up or pull when excited but in general she is a pretty mellow girl. She is still a young shepherd and needs daily activity. She is not a big barker, she is crate trained. She has been great with the other dogs, large and small. She has been tested with our cats and passed with flying colors. We ALWAYS recommend superivision and proper introductions though!
We are looking for a stable, commited, experienced home where Hannah can be an indoor member of the family. No apartments or condos please! Must be over 25.
Adoption is $400 and includes her spay, rabies, worming, shots, heartworm test, bordatella vaccine and microchip. 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.
