This is Georgie!! He is an almost 3 yr old, 11lb silky terrier. He is beautiful, sweet, great with pretty much everyone. He loves daycare, getting groomed, snuggling on my lap & playing with my other dog. He's generous with kisses and is always happy. He is true to his terrier heritage and loves to chase critters that run so a fenced yard and no kitties would be best.
Georgie trains easily: walking, heeling, sitting, lying, gentle with food (I can put my hand in his bowl), he knows to sit when we stop, and he rides in a booster seat he loves. He is house and crate trained and ready for a family!
Our adoption fee is $425 unless otherwise listed in the dogs bio and $475 for puppies. You will find the application on our home page.
We are often asked, "Why would you charge "so much" for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support all rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in (discounted) vet care, and many people will want to adopt it. An older one with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation; yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt it. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others. Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible."
