  • When adopting a rescue dog, we can only go off the information that was provided by their foster home. Sometimes, when the dog enters a new environment it may show a different behavior than it did in its foster. This is often the "adjustment period". It takes time for your new dog, along with any of your current pets to get used to each other. A day is not even close to being able to determine if it is going to work out or not. Everyone needs time to feel settled and get into a set routine, please remember that your new dog probably has been passed around from home to home prior to coming into our rescue. Some just need some time before feeling at home. We try our hardest to make sure we are adopting the dog home to a family that fits its needs, as well as making sure the dog is a good fit for its new family.

    Sometimes adopting a rescue dog takes a little work, if you are looking for the perfect dog it just does not exist. We understand in some situations it is just not possible to keep working with your new dog, however most of the returns we get could have been avoided had the adopters just hung on a little longer and gave everyone a proper chance to adjust to one another.
  • Are you looking for a dog to watch over your livestock and/or poultry?
    If not, do you still have livestock and/or poultry that the dog MUST be good with?
  • ****ATTENTION****

    This is the part we send on to the dog of interest's foster so PLEASE be very detailed in what you are looking for in your new dog and what your activity/lifestyle is like. Remember, you may not be the only person applying for him/her. An example of what we mean is listed below.

    Ex: "We are a young couple looking for another dog to join our family! We currently have a 1.5 year old male golden retriever/ Great Pyrenees named Ari. Ari has a balanced playful/calm attitude and would love a dog to match his energy! We are looking for a young pup preferably under a year that would eventually enjoy public outings to dog parks and going on walks around town. We will have someone home full time with the new dog to be sure they feel comfortable in our home and so our current dog can adjust to the new pup! We are willing to continue or begin training so we wouldn’t need them to be fully potty trained before coming to us as we were very successful in training our current dog Ari. Overall we are hoping for a playful puppy to join us on our adventures!" *
