BEFORE SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION, please note, our dogs are beautiful and special, but never perfect. Please make sure you are ready, prepared and willing to teach a new dog how to relax in your home and patiently take the time to work with the dog each and every day for the lifetime of the dog. This includes teaching the dog how to fit into your routine, lifestyle and home. These things take months, years, and often a lifetime of direction and good rules and boundaries. Be sure that you are willing to hire a trainer for this dog if any behavior issues should arrise. Understand fully that this dog is a lifetime commitment, including lifelong vet expenses, lifelong behavior hurdles & issues that require time, patience, and hiring a trainer when help is needed.
Returning an adopted dog creates awful stress on the dog, loss of previous potential adopters, and hardship on the rescue.
Note that the adoption fee is forfeited, and a surrender payment of $150 is collected.
Please take some time to consider these things and read our adoption application and agreement thoroughly before adopting one of our dogs.
