APPLY TO ADOPT
Interested in adopting one of our senior dogs?
It's easy! First, make note of the dog's name and then move on to the online adoption application.
After your application is approved, we will coordinate a time for a meet and greet with you and the senior dog you are applying to adopt.
If you (and your family) and the dog are a good match for each other, a home visit is then scheduled and completed.
After a home visit is complete, the adoption can be finalized and a new happy tail can be told!
Gentle Ben came to us from the shelter after he was left behind in a house with his 5 brothers. He hasn't lived a great life in the past but he's living a great life now and is ready to share his happiness with his forever family.
Ben is great with dogs, cats and kids.
He has been doing well with his house-training and is a sweet, mellow and very gentle boy.
He's most likely been treated with a heavy hand and it will take him a little bit of time to trust that he's safe from harm. He'll need some patience with learning to walk with a leash because he's very frightened of leash-like objects and even walks in general.
Ben may be hearing impaired or he may have selective hearing - the jury is still out! Either way, it doesn't bother him one bit.
Our fluffy mini Malamute is ready to share his positive and cheerful attitude with his forever family. All that he asks for in return is kind words, a soft touch and a warm and cozy bed!
