Hello! I am Matthew, a 5-7 year old Shih Tzu mix. I came to animal control as a stray with a horribly matted coat and severe dry eye (which is a common ailment in dogs of my breed). I have since been to the vet, had my coat shaved, my eyes treated and a full dental cleaning. I am looking and feeling much better! I am settling into my foster home and learning my way around. I like to cuddle up in blankets and on laps and to get petted by the kids here who adore me. I get along with all the dogs, cats and people I have met. I am a VERY easy going guy who enjoys sniffing around the back yard and sleeping much of the day away. It takes me a little while to get used to my surroundings since my eye sight is not very good due to the lack of care I received previously. Once I do, you can't even tell that my vision is limited. I will require daily wetting drops the rest of my life but I am such a champ at taking them, it really is on big deal. If you are looking for an easy-going constant companion, look no further! Fill out an application and my foster mom will contact you right away.
We do not have a facility for you to visit. WE PROCESS APPLICANTS AND SET APPOINTMENTS BASED ON THE ORDER APPLICATIONS ARE RECEIVED , so while you are welcome to call (248) 834-9419 or email email@example.com with specific questions, you will want to complete the ONLINE APPLICATION ASAP , which can be found at www.ccrcdogs.com, to secure your position in line for one of our dogs. You can also find a description of our process on that same page. Puppies will not be available to be seen until their 10 day quarantine has passed. Our adoption fee is $200 for adults and $275 for puppies, which covers the cost of the spay/neuter, age appropriate shots and tests, medications to bring the dog to full health, and a free visit with one of our approved vets after adoption. The majority of dogs at CCRC are obtained from animal control centers, so there is often very little known about their history or even current habits. You can always expect to do some training, regardless of whether you adopt a dog or a puppy, including crate training, house training, and basic manners. CCRC provides a variety of materials and resources to assist you with this, as well as telephone support.
