DHS does not have a facility. All of our animals are housed in foster homes. Therefore, we require having a completed adoption application on file before we ask our foster families to rearrange their schedules for a meet and greet or answer individual inquiries. And, please be patient, we are staffed only by volunteers. It may be a few days before you hear from us.
Jackson is about a year old (as of March 2016) Lab mix male. He is sweet and friendly.. HW negative and neutered. He is very playful and energetic but wants to please, so he listens well. He doesn't have very good dog manners and runs up to strange dogs too quickly at times and gets his butt kicked but he is submissive. He just lives for attention. He would do best in a home that had time to give him plenty of exercise. He is good in his crate but really needs a fence yard to run in. He listens well and always comes when called and then will sit to be petted.
All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
Since all of our animals are housed with fosters, we ask that you submit a completed application before we answer individual inquiries. Submitting an application never obligates you to adopt but we will have a better understanding of your needs so that we can better answer your questions.
