About This Dog/puppy
Tiny Dancer came to Rompin Paws as a 6 month old puppy whose male owner had 14 unspayed and unneutered dogs (2 were pregnant) and he became homeless. We took in Tiny dancer and her father Leon. Both dogs were incredibly emaciated and dehydrated. after proper vet care and treatments for parasites, both are thriving.
Tiny dancer is an incredibly loving dog. due to her hoarding past, whi,le she gets along with the dogs here at the rescue, in foster care, she prefers to be the only dog and have her humans to herself. she would be great for a retired couplke who have the time and love to give her. it will be awhile before she toitally settles and realizes she is in her furever home and is less needy, but right now she needs a lot of love and one on one time. Tiny will reward her people with live and so much affection.
Tiny has tall legs but is very narrow body which may fill in when she is an adult. she has a great appetite but burns off all her calories due to her energy level so we recommend 3-4x feeding a day while she is still growing.
Adopting a Dog requires a lot of work and is a commitment! Tiny will be an awesome addition to a family that can give her the attention, exercise, training and affection she deserves.
OUR REQUIREMENTS FOR PUPPY ADOPTION: 1) These puppies are not livestock dogs. They must be family pets that are allowed inside the home.
2) Please do not apply for a puppy if you are gone 8-10 hours a day. It is not good situation for you or the puppy.
4) We give preference to applicants with prior small breed knowledge/ experiences.
5) Secure visible fencing required.
6) You must have plan in place to socialize your puppy properly.
7) Please do NOT write us and ask if this puppy is available. If it is posted, it is available. BUT, we may be working other applications that came in before yours. If so, by the time you are approved, the puppy may not be available.
8) The FASTEST way to be considered for a puppy is to fill out an application. If you write, it will delay your application and put you to the back of the line. All the persons processing applications are volunteers that have their own dogs, families and job responsibilities. We do our best to get applications done quickly but applications for adult dogs come before puppy applications. There is always someone that will want to adopt a puppy.
Health: Tiny has been spayed, microchipped, current on DHPP, Bordetella, and Rabies. She has been wormed and flea treated, treated for parasites and tested negative for heartworm and Parvo
History: Tiny came from a hoarding situation where the owner lost his home. Rompin Paws Rescue was asked to help and we are so glad we did. All dogs RPR pulls from California come with health certificates, as required by Washington state Law.
Notes from Tiny's Foster Home:
Cody came to her as a 6 week old puppy, scared and needing his mom dog. he was taken in by a mom dachshund and her 6 week old puppy, so he has had a mentor to care for him and a sister to play with. Cody has blossomed and plays well with the fosters dogs. Cody is very intelligent, is Inquisitive, sweet and cuddly and will want to be wherever his human is. Cody is just a baby and will need another dog for a companion and mentor, or be heavily socialized with other dogs as part of his life plan if there is not another dog in the home. He will also be required to attend puppy and dog training classes until he can graduate with the Good Canine Citizen certificate.
Adoption: If you think you have room in your home and heart for Tiny please go to our website:
There you will find more information and be able to fill out an adoption application.
Adoption Fees
Adoption fee is 495.00 this covers transport and adoption and medical such as certain vaccines, worming and parasite, and flea/tick control, health certificate and wellness exam
We bring dogs from up from California. so there are transportation costs for each dog. Then the dogs need to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, groomed, and sometimes boarded if we can't place them in a foster, or set up at the adoption facility in Arlington, Also, we don't receive any grants so we rely solely on adoption fees and donations to fund all of our rescue efforts. Finally, we take on "Special Needs" dogs with high vet costs and pay for their procedures with 'leftover' funds from adoption fees for healthier dogs.
About Rompin Paws Rescue Rompin Paws Rescue is a licensed, non-profit organization working towards our 501C3, specializing in rescuing moms to be, moms with puppies, puppies without moms and other Death Row dogs. We are located in Western Washington State.
Our passion is to bring people and pets together. Countless dogs are without homes and in need of assistance. These are dogs who would make wonderful and faithful companions if only they could connect with the right person or family. We have made it our mission to help them do this. At the same time we hope to enrich the lives of those who adopt them.
We strive to match our dog's needs and personality to the preferences and requirements of each potential adopter. We believe this is a crucial component of the process and will help ensure a life-long relationship.
Our primary focus is on small mixed breeds, moms and puppies of small and large breeds, although we do occasionally take in larger dogs. We work collaboratively with shelters, other rescue groups, and individuals, both locally and in California..
Healthy dogs: As a rescue saving dogs from starvation, Neglect and Emaciation, RPR focus's on feeding each rescue animal the healthiest dog food made of Human Grade ingredients to help them recover from their stress and starvation. We share this with our adopters and encourage them to keep their new pet on the same foods for optimal health and a long life.
RPR was established in April, 2015. we placed 400 dogs in our first year of operation in a small facility on Acreage in Arlington Washington.
We have a few local fosters and seek to increase our foster base in order to save more lives
Come Meet Our Pets... We have a home based operation on Acreage in Arlington and Our dogs are placed in foster homes around the greater Seattle/I-5 Corridor North to Arlington area where they receive socialization and training while they await adoption.
Our Adoption Process... Since we have a small facility on gated acreage, we are unable to stay open to anyone who wishes to come visit. To facilitate successful adoptions we ask interested people and families to fill out an application for the dog or dogs they may be interested in. We screen the applications and then speak with the interested party by phone. If it looks like a good match can be made, we pre-approve the applicant and set an appointment for a meet and greet with the dogs at out facility or with the fosters who have the dogs in their care. we continue the interview in person and make sure the dog and family are a good fit.
