All of our sweet pups big or small, young or old are being socialized daily with other dogs, adults, and most importantly children. They are ALL in homes being cared for by people who LOVE them! Each and every one of our dogs with PROPER TRAINING, EXCERCISE, BOUNDRIES, & STRUCTURE will make beautiful additions to their new families!
Before adopting a dog based on looks or cuteness, assess what kind of dog will work best, based on your lifestyle. For example, do you live an active life? Do you enjoy hiking, running, or walking? If so, we recommend adopting a dog with a moderate to high energy level. If you aren't looking for such an energetic dog, but more so a dog who wants to relax all day, then we recommend an older dog or a dog with that personality.
Everyone loves puppies; how could you not?! However, puppies require a ton of work, time, and energy. If you are someone who works all day and does not have the means necessary to check on the puppy every so often, or have someone to take care of the puppy, we do not recommend adopting a young dog. However, if you have your heart set on adopting a puppy, we recommend looking at puppies that are at least 3 or more months old. They will still require a lot of attention, but not as much as an 8 week old pup. Remember, the more effort you put into the puppy, the better behaved the dog will be.
By adopting a senior dog, you are providing that dog with his or her final home. We highly encourage the adoption of these beautiful, well hearted dogs. However, you must be prepared both emotionally and financially for the responsibility of caring for an elder dog. Some of these dogs will eventually need medication, extra veterinary procedures, and will have some loss of bladder control, which requires patience of the adopter. You also have to prepare yourself that you may not have this dog for years and years, but you will know that the time the dog spent with you will have been the best time of their life and that they will be forever appreciative of you!
If you don't know what type of dog you are looking for...
Talk to us! Describe your lifestyle. Are you active, are you home a lot, do you travel, do you have insurance or apartment requirements, do you have cats? These are some good questions to keep in mind.
ADOPTING IS A LONG TERM COMMITMENT and choice. We want to ensure the best possible match for you and your lifestyle. We also always welcome those with the ability to foster. Fostering is a vital part of our rescue in order for us to rescue and home dogs. Our rescue is able to continue saving dogs because of our wonderful fosters who care for and house them until they are adopted.
