Available Dogs

Please feel free to inquire about dogs listed as adoptable, but an application must be received to begin the adoption process. Our application can be found on our Forms page. Please contact your area Regional Coordinator FIRST for any questions regarding adoption. All dogs available for adoption are listed on this website.

 

If there are no listings, then we do not have any dogs available. The best way to stay in the loop is to submit an application to your regional coordinator so that your information will be readily available when a dog does become available.

Rielley

Vetting a dog is a fact-finding mission. “I want this dog,” means knowing what the dog needs to be successful and it is your responsibility to care for it properly and know that the dog will be successful in your environment and home.  The success of a new dog in your home is your responsibility and your success.

Special Medical issues: Rielley is very overweight, and will require a dedicated owner to help him shed the pounds. He has age related arthritis, and degenerative disc disease. He also has anxiety, and is on medication to help with his pain and anxiety levels.

 

History:     

Anxious, overweight Cardigan seeks home with full time staff, must include nutritionist, fitness guru, and personal butler. 

 

Reilley is very shy. He will take time to warm up. From several weeks to several months. It will take time and effort to earn his trust, but once you have it, you will have a wonderful companion. 

 

Reilley enjoys shadowing his people around the house. He wants to be pet on his own terms, but he likes to be right in the middle of whatever you're doing. Unless what you're doing involves exercise, then he will gladly pass.

 

He likes comfy beds, and is a most excellent TV watching companion, bonus, he won't complain about how much trash TV you watch. He's down for your 18 hour long Netflix binges.

 

Reilley is available on a foster to adopt basis. While he has made great strides in his weightloss journey, he still had a long way to go. He will need to go for regular weight checks at a vet to make sure he continues to shed the pounds.  Once he has reached an ideal weight for his size (we estimate between 34-40lbs) full ownership will be signed over.
