Plopper *shy guy*

German Shepherd Dog

Plopper was originally adopted as a puppy from a local shelter but got escaped and was on the run for several months. Miraculously animal control was able to catch him and bring him to safety at which time we felt quite sorry for him and decided to bring him into our care for socialization. He is shy of people but not aggressive. He THRIVES.....comes to life around dogs and so we feel very strongly that he should be adopted in a home where there will be a canine companion. He is VERY playful with another dog around
Plopper is really what I would consider a project dog. If he was adopted at this time he would really need a very experienced family who was willing to take things slow and make friends very very gradually. It would be sort of like wanting a car but instead of buying it built, you buy all the parts because you enjoy the process....thats plopper! He is a very skittish dog and will likely always be very shy even with a great deal of work. Since coming into foster care, he has warmed up to "his people" to the point that he is comfortable laying beside them and even sleeping on the bed. However, sometimes he even runs from them if they are not careful to move slowly.
Plopper is around 2 years old and his adoption fee is 175 which covers the following: spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm testing, dhp/p, rabies, bordatella (agre appropriate vaccines), deworming, and all the care he received while with CVRR. All animals are on flea and tick and parasite prevention for the duration in fostercare. We are an volunteer group, who process the applications so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions. You can expedite the process by providing accurate phone and email addresses for all your references. Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process . We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible. When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if the dog picks you too. If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee and an adoption contract to be signed. The adoption fees help cover a portion of the care provided to the animals. All dogs and pups are microchipped and all animals adopted out are spayed/neutered and fully vetted. **All of our animals have a lifetime commitment. If for any reason, the adoption does not work out, the cats and dogs are to come back to CVRR, which is a NO kill rescue.*** The foster family and the rescue volunteers will choose the new home based on the best fit for the dog/cat.
