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.
Higgins is a crazy cute fun loving boy! He loves attention, is great with other dogs and has a great temperment. He is energetic without being hyper, he is crate trained and not a big barker. Housetraining unknown. Please be prepared to train to some degree.
Higgins came to us two years ago very concerned about his safety. He was friendly, but worried. He did not like being picked up and while he never bit, he did make overtures (warnings) when scared. He seems to be competely over it but we still do want an experienced home with a people who are good at reading body language. He needs someone who will train in a positive way.
Higgins is one of our favorites and when he was at the vet recently for an updated shot, the vet said he was "the nicest dog!". Higgins is 3-4 years old and about 20+ lbs. He appears to be a corgi and possibly carin terrier.
Adoption is $375 and helps cover the cost of his neuter, rabies, worming, shots, heartworm test and all dogs go home on a two week trial.
If you are interested in making Higgins part of your family, please first fill out an application at www.thedogspotrescue.org and then do a followup email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your appointment. ALL dogs are met by appointment in ELK GROVE, Ca
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.
