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!
Shawn (white stripe) and Kyle are a dad and son duo who were surrendered to a local shelter. Both were terrified and trembling in their kennel, completely shut down. We rescued senior Shawn and knew we couldn't leave Kyle behind.
We don't know if they were abused or under socialized, or both. Everything appears to be brand new to them. They are slowly coming out of their shells and finding their confidence and happy. Despite their past, they are both kind and affectionate dogs who, once they feel safe, let loose with tons of kisses and hugs and waggy tails.
Shawn is 8 years old and weighs about 12 lbs and Kyle is 2 year old and weighs about 10 lbs. They seem to be a mixture of dachshund, chi, beagle and maybe a splash of min pin. It's a mystery!
They are generally ok with dogs and cats but are scared of them until they get to know them.
At this time we consider them a bonded pair and will adopt them out together. Dad and son will do well in a mellow and quiet home where they can move at a pace that's comfortable for them. We recommend an adopter who has experience with timid dogs.
With time and love, we know that Kyle and Shawn will be a pair of fun-loving, playful and enthusiastic little boys!
