Adoptable Dogs!

Barkley (JW-D-4565-R)

New Arrival!!

Dear New Family,

Let me introduce myself. I'm Barkley. Nice to meet you! I look like a Papillon-Poodle mix. Well, Papillon for sure - I mean, just look at these ears! Cool, huh? I'm a little guy, just about 11 pounds, and estimated to be about 3 years old. I somehow found myself on the streets of Chicago and decided that the street life was not for me! So, I hired Adopt-A-Pet to find me a new home.

Though my name tends to say I may be a bit noisy, I really am not. I don't know why these folks named me that. In fact, I'm a rather quiet little boy. You may hear a yip once in awhile but that only means I need your company. I love to play with toys - balls are a favorite. I'll entertain you by putting my little hiney up in the air, tail wagging, anticipating the throw with a watchful eye and throaty voice. My foster mom calls me "a goofy ball of energy". When people speak, I'll cock my head at them, fluffy ears up like I'm ready to take off - thinking, pondering, deciding what they may want me to do. And if I can, I do exactly what would please them most.

I'm that sort of pup who chooses his canine friends. That is not to say I don't get along with others - I do - I just tend to have a BFF list! More often than not, once I meet the pooches we're off and running, or rumbling and tumbling. When all the fun and games are over, I can be a champion snuggler. Burrowing under blankets or pillows to cuddle next to my person is just one of my specialties. While I'm generally a good boy in the house when home, my foster mom still crates me when she's away, to help with my housebreaking.

So, I'm a pretty great little dog, right? Well, I am, but there's something I have to confess. I'm a return. Yep, I was adopted out once before and returned. I behaved badly. I didn't realize it then, but I understand now. There were small kids in my home, and I bit them ... um, more than once. The details are kind of sketchy, I don't remember why I did that or what I was thinking at the time. But something was stressing me out and they were the closest targets. Looking back on it, I know I was wrong and I'm trying to be a good boy now. My new foster mom is a trainer and she's really helped me to overcome my insecurities. In fact, she even purposely tries to provoke me to bite! But I'm onto her tricks, and I'm not gonna let her trick me into doing THAT again.

So, yeah, because of the previous biting, now I have a rap sheet. It's Adopt-A-Pet's policy not to adopt out dogs that they believe are dangerous. But they're giving me one more chance since I'm improving in so many ways with my trainer and her determination is cautiously optimistic that I will be a good pet for the right family - in fact, a great pet for the right family. That, of course, means no kids!

So I'm now on parole and trying to turn my life around. I'm looking for that special family or person that will give me the chance. I'm going to need an experienced dog person who is able to be a strong leader. My ideal family will give me the daily exercise I need and not have a lot of guests coming and going. If we're the right match, I will make a very loyal companion.

My adoption fee of $250 includes: vet exam, negative heartworm test, distemper, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and I'm neuterered.

     

Before!!

Bo  (TMP-D-4611)

After!!

 

Affectionate, entertaining and well-behaved in the house: that’s our Bo, a one year old Apricot poodle mix. He is friendly, bright, and likes to play, especially with his squeaky toys. He also loves long walks and though he weighs only 10 pounds, he can easily keep up with the big dogs, making him a great exercise partner. He’s also a performer – he walks on his hind legs to entertain the neighborhood children.

Back at home, Bo is an affectionate companion who will sleep at your feet (or on your lap – whichever you prefer) for hours. He is well-behaved in the house – his foster family reports that he isn’t nosy, doesn’t chew on anything other than his toys, and rarely barks. He is learning basic commands and catches on quickly.

Because Bo is a “people person,” he will do well with an owner who will take him everywhere and not leave him alone in the house. So if you’re looking for a full-time companion who loves to walk and also loves to snuggle, contact us about Bo.

Bo's adoption fee of $300 includes the following: vet exam, heartworm test, DHAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, Bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, deworming, flea and tick prevention, heartworm preventative, and neuter.

 

       

Button (MC-D-4609)

Adopted!!

 

Button is a cute little lady who looks like a Maltese/Poodle mix and weighs just over 10 pounds. We are not sure of her age, but we think it's somewhere around 10 years.

Button is sweet but timid around people, and we've found, afraid if not terrified of other dogs. Once she gets to know them, Button is fine around other dogs as long as they respect her personal space and stay off her doggy bed. But she would be happiest as the only dog in the house.

One on one, she turns on the charm and will be your new best friend! She is used to being groomed, and the groomer called her a little sweetheart and put pink bows in her hair.

We know that Button is house-trained; she's never had even one accident, according to her foster home. She likes to sleep in late in the morning, doesn't bark if she knows you, and in general is a very easy, easy-going dog who just wants to lie on her doggy bed next to you. She walks nicely on a leash but prefers to be indoors when it's cold outside. Or better yet, why walk when you can drive? She is at home in the front passenger seat of the car.

Button would be the perfect dog for an experienced dog owner who wants a small companion and doesn't have other dogs or young children, who would probably frighten her.

If you have time to get to know her, give her a belly rub, and help Button regain her confidence, she will have your heart all sewn up in no time!

Button's adoption fee of $200 includes the following: vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, deworming, flea and tick prevention, heartworm preventative, and spay. And grooming!

Chico (EM-D-4557)

This is our little Chico. Although he has the coloring of a toy fox terrier, we're pretty sure he's a chihuahua. He's a tiny boy, weighing in at 4.5 lbs. Poor little Chico probably had a scary beginning in life as he's on the timid side, but he's getting much better in his foster home as he learns that nobody is going to hurt him. He walks well on leash and is good with older children (8+) who would be gentle with such a tiny dog.

Chico comes when he's called, enjoys playing with his toys, and he LOVES playing with other dogs so if you have a lonesome pooch at home looking for a playmate, this little guy may be a good choice. He probably wouldn't be good for apartment living since he does bark at outside noises. We think Chico will do well with a patient and gentle person/couple who can give him guidance and who will help him learn that people will treat him well consistently, so whatever he experienced earlier in his life just becomes a dim memory. Imagine how gratifying it would be to watch his confidence grow. And, btw, he's very, very cute!

We estimate Chico to be about 4 years old, and his adoption fee of $325 includes the following: vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, deworming, flea and tick prevention, heartworm preventative, and neuter.

Gage (DPH-D-4552)

Adopted!!

Engage with Gage! Or trip with Tripp! Well, okay, even though his name was Gage, someone started calling him Tripp and it kind of stuck. A sweet 1-2 year old male mixed breed that looks like he might be a hound/setter mix, Tripp found himself dumped at the pound when his young owners decided they had too many animals and couldn't take care of them all. He came to us with ribs showing, very underweight at 48 pounds. He's now the right weight and in robust health! He is reported to have grown up with cats, loves kids and other dogs, and is very playful.

Tripp is a good, funny, friendly boy. He gets along with everyone, is housebroken and relatively well mannered other than occasionally claiming something as his own off the counter - that isn't! Tripp's foster home is a doggie daycare, and the staff reports to us that he's the "life of the party". Loves to play, other dogs love him, and he even tries to be the referee, breaking up scuffles between other dogs.

But what he really wants, they say, is just to be with someone. He loves to lay on you and be with people. He'll lap up every ounce of attention that you give him.

He enjoys sunning himself in the yard, and true to his breed, he has lots of energy. He will need a family that will give him adequate exercise on a daily basis. If you think you're the one, Tripp is patiently waiting for you. Please give us a call and come meet him!

Tripp's adoption fee of $300 includes: vet exam, heartworm test, distemper combination vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, deworming, microchip and neuter.

         

Gilbert (SF-D-4605)

The name Gilbert is a Teutonic and American name meaning “oath”, in English “Trusted”, in French “Bright lad” and in German “Bright Pledge”, and he is definitely all of these. We think he is a beagle-blue tick hound mix, but he’s not talking so it’s anyone’s guess. Though his picture makes him look black and white, he is actually dark brown and white. Gilbert is conveniently-sized at 33 lbs, conveniently-aged between 4-6 years old (maybe younger), handsome and easy-to-groom and has the hounds’ appealing soulful expression.

Want a happy dog? That’s Gilbert all the way – his tail never stops wagging and his belly regularly pops up for rubs, and let us not forget his fondness for being a lapdog. He likes to play with toys and will even play by himself. Fetch is his favorite game, though the return needs a little work. He is housebroken. His current curriculum includes working on better leash manners, sit and come.

Hounds were developed as hunting dogs and they have many hunting dog behaviors hardwired into their genes, which means they:
• adore their people,
• are very athletic and need much more than a couple walks around the block,
• are easygoing and laid-back indoors when well exercised, can be a rambunctious handful when not exercised,
• have ‘selective deafness’ whenever their nose and exploratory instincts send them running after adventure,
• LOVE exercise, play, and outdoor activities (hunting, jogging, biking, hiking, and swimming),
• are good-natured with people and other dogs,
• are best in a fenced yard where they can stretch their legs without succumbing to wanderlust,
• are best kept on leash unless very well trained as they are inveterate explorers who will follow their nose over hill, over dale, through the woods … and onto highways,
• gave the term ‘chowhound’ its meaning, they devour their food, and anyone else’s they can procure,
• are a smart working dog, it is their nature to figure out ways to outwit prey -- and sometimes people too,
• tend to follow the beat of a different drum (i.e. can very stubborn / obstinate),
• obedience training can be a challenge and must be upbeat and persuasive (include food rewards).

You won’t find a sweeter, friendlier more loving dog than Gilbert.

Gilbert's adoption fee of $290 includes: vet exam, distemper combo and bordetella vaccinations, heartworm test (neg), heartworm preventative, rabies vaccination, deworming, flea and tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

Harley (BNI-D-4561)

Meet our little 12 pound Harley, a terrier mix who we estimate to be 2 years old. In a matter of a couple days he will be a loving part of your family. He was either ignored or not treated very well in his past so he needs a little time and patience so he can learn to trust you. It only took him a few days to settle in and get comfortable with his new foster family, which includes 2 other small dogs. He enjoys going for walks (he's potty-trained and walks great on leash - woohoo!). When at home he likes to either be on your lap, sit next to you or put his head on your leg – really he just likes to be close but he doesn’t need to be held all the time like many small lap dogs. Harley very much enjoys the company of the older kids in the house – he sleeps with them and is quiet as a mouse through the night. So far there has been little, if any, shedding. You can see a video clip of Harley here that we took on the first day we met him.

Maybe because he's small he gets a little intimidated when people come up to him and make an immediate move to pet him. He likes to warm up to strangers first on his terms (which just means he should be ignored) then, when given a little time, he's fine with them. For this reason, we feel Harley should be adopted to a family with older children (over 12).

Harley will make a great pet with the right family/couple/person who will love him and keep him well socialized.

Harley's adoption fee of $300 includes: vet exam, heart worm test (neg), distemper/bordetella/rabies vaccinations, fecal test (neg), flea control, microchip and neuter.

Harlow (WP-D-4612)

Adopted!!

Meet Harlow, a 1.5 year old, 12 lb. Peke-A-Pom - which is a Pekingese/Pomeranian mix. Harlow was purchased as a puppy by a young woman who didn't think ahead about her ability to care for a dog - not to mention 2 dogs (see Mae, her best friend). They were kept in a crate pretty much all day other than for potty breaks and some infrequent play times. At least her previous owner wanted something better than she could provide for Harlow and Mae, so we decided to help her out.

We're told that both Harlow and Mae are affectionate and playful dogs, although they have some pent up energy from being confined too long. A good initial play-off and regular exercise should remedy that. They do their business as soon as they get outside, although it might be a leap to say they're potty-trained since we don't think they spent much time loose in their previous home - but at least they are in the habit of relieving themselves outside so that's a good start. We don't have much more to share at this point, but will add to this description as info becomes available. Harlow is very bonded with Mae, so we would love for both of them to get adopted by the same family.

You can meet Harlow (and Mae) at Wilmette Pet Center anytime during store hours 7 days a week (625 Green Bay Road, 847-251-6750). Please know that you will have to complete an application prior to adopting Harlow.

Harlow's adoption fee of $325 includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), distemper, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

Hazel (ABR-D-4600)

New Arrival!!

When you meet Hazel you'll almost want to be wearing shin guards to protect yourself from her ever-wagging tail! This sweetheart is a hound mix with a beautiful brindle coat, estimated to be about 2 years old, weighing in at 60 lbs. She came to us with her 3 puppies. This new mom immediately makes friends with anyone she meets and loves getting close for an affectionate pet and nuzzle.

We can tell Hazel is an energetic girl; however, because Hazel failed her heartworm test the vet has her on limited exercise for the next month or so while she is being treated. Once she is done with her treatment she will love to get out and run circles in the backyard. She's interested in sticks, balls, and toys so she may make a great partner in fetch or keep-away when she is fully healed. Hazel is so excited to get out of the house on her short walks that she will pull you down the driveway, but she will get better on the leash once she can actually burn off some of her energy.

Hazel is doing very well on her house training and is good in a crate. So far no destroyed shoes, but sometimes her foster parents don't always find them where they left them... hmmm . . . But as long as she is kept supplied with rawhides and bones throughout the house, everything else has been safe. She absolutely LOVES chomping on the rawhides.

Hazel gets along great with the resident dog in her foster home, even sharing doggy beds with her. Occasionally she'll get a bop on the nose from one of the cats if she comes in too close, too quickly, but from all accounts she gets along ok with cats too.

Get excited to meet this excited girl! Hazel is ready for her new home and new family any time you are!

Hazel's adoption fee of $290 includes: vet exam, distemper combo and bordetella vaccinations, rabies vaccination, heartworm test and treatment, heartworm preventative, deworming, flea and tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

Levi (PZ-D-4606)

New Arrival!!

Meet Levi, a handsome fellow with a beautiful brindle coat and stunning light eyes. This guy is a real head-turner. His breed is unknown, but most likely a mixture of a little of this, like plotthound, and a little of that, like mountain cur, and a dash of this, like lab, and a pinch of weimaraner-like eyes. Levi is estimated to be about 4 years old and weighs in at 49 pounds.

He was a favorite at the vet clinic and he’s friendly to everyone – adults, children, dogs… He has even won over his foster sister who can be a bit of a bully. He just takes it all in stride and only wants to play. When he’s not playing with his foster sister, he entertains himself with bones or retreats to his crate to nap. He’s a smart boy and learned to sit very quickly. He has almost mastered sitting at just the snap of a finger. He’s relatively calm, not a barker, and good on a leash. He’d love to meet you and continue his education!

Levi's adoption fee of $290 includes: vet exam, distemper combo and bordetella vaccinations, heartworm test (neg), heartworm preventative, rabies vaccination, deworming, dental cleaning (as well as a fractured canine removed), flea and tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

Mae (WP-D-4613)

Adopted!!

Meet Mae, a 1.5 year old, 14 lb. Peke-A-Pom - which is a Pekingese/Pomeranian mix. Mae was purchased as a puppy by a young woman who didn't think ahead about her ability to care for a dog - not to mention 2 dogs (see Harlow, her best friend). They were kept in a crate pretty much all day other than for potty breaks and some infrequent play times. At least her previous owner wanted something better than she could provide for Mae and Harlow, so we decided to help her out.

We're told that both Mae & Harlow are affectionate and playful dogs, although they have some pent up energy from being confined too long. A good initial play-off and regular exercise should remedy that quickly. They do their business as soon as they get outside, although it might be a leap to say they're potty-trained since we don't think they spent much time loose in their previous home - but at least they are in the habit of relieving themselves outside so that's a good start. We don't have much more to share at this point, but will add to this description as info becomes available. Mae is very bonded with Harlow, so we would love for both of them to get adopted by the same family.

You can meet Mae (and Harlow) at Wilmette Pet Center anytime during store hours 7 days a week (625 Green Bay Road, 847-251-6750). Please know that you will have to complete an application prior to adopting Mae.

Mae's adoption fee of $325 includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), distemper, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

           

PlayStation (WP-D-4614)

New Arrival!!

Meet PlayStation! He and his brother were found In Missouri about a month ago. A man picked them up while they were playing in the middle of a busy road, and took them to the local vet. They were two lucky little boys! This is all that is known about them.

A local rescue group contacted Adopt A Pet, but they could not get very good pictures since the 2 pups would not stop playing and were squirming to be put down. PLAY PLAY PLAY was on their minds, so PlayStation was named! His brother (X-Box?) was adopted, but PlayStation is here, looking for his forever home in Illinois.

PlayStation is now about 3 months old, and weighs just over 11 pounds. We've found he doesn't wag his tail, he wags his entire body! He is extremely sweet and friendly, although he can be somewhat shy until he gets to know you. Once he does, he wants to PLAY PLAY PLAY! And then snuggle. He is great not only with kids but also with other dogs.

Because we do not know what size, weight, shape, breed or appearance PlayStation will grow into as an adult, only those willing to take pot luck need apply. Because he is still a baby, he should not be left alone for long hours and will need a stay-at-home person to implement his housebreaking, socialization and general obedience. He will be ready for puppy school right after adoption.

You can meet PlayStation at Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Road, anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750). Although you may want to adopt him on the spot--and start playing--, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

PlayStation's adoption fee of $350 includes: vet exam, distemper combo, rabies, and bordetella vaccinations, deworming, flea and tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

         

Ritz (WP-D-4602)

This little boy is Ritz, a sweet mixed breed pup, currently weighing in at about 18 pounds. Although he looks black in the photos, he actually has some faint red/brindle markings and is much more handsome in person than his pictures show.

Ritz and his 2 sisters came to us along with their mom Hazel, who is a 55 pound Hound mix. From his looks, we’re guessing his dad was a terrier. But looks can be deceiving: Ritz is a happy-go-lucky sweetheart of a guy, who is very well socialized, smart, eager to please, and ready to go home to be part of your family! Unlike most pups his age, he is not mouthy and destructive-- he doesn’t even destroy his chew toys!

Because we do not know what size, weight, shape, breed or appearance Ritz will grow into as an adult, only those willing to take pot luck need apply. He is a typical young puppy, full of puppy sweetness and puppy energy. Because he is still young, he should not be left alone for long hours and will need a stay-at-home person to implement his housebreaking, socialization and general obedience. He will be ready for puppy school right after adoption.

You can meet Ritz at Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Road, anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com ). Although you may want to adopt him on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Ritz's estimated date of birth is 7-28-14 and his adoption fee of $350 includes: vet exam, distemper combo and bordetella vaccinations, deworming, flea and tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

         

Saltine (WP-D-4601)

Adopted!!

Meet adorable Saltine, a sweet tri-color mixed breed pup, the smallest of her litter, currently weighing in at about 7 pounds. We know mom was a 55 pound hound mix (see Hazel), and dad is unknown. Because we do not know what size, weight, shape, breed or appearance Saltine will grow into as an adult, only those willing to take pot luck need apply. Saltine is a typical young puppy, full of puppy sweetness and puppy energy. Because she is still a baby, she should not be left alone for long hours and will need a stay-at-home person to implement her housebreaking, socialization and general obedience. She will be ready for puppy school right after adoption.

You can meet Saltine at Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Road, anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com ). Although you may want to adopt her on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Sergeant Pepper (JS-D-4608)

New Arrival!!

Hey, Everyone. My name is Sergeant Pepper, even though everyone just calls me Pepper. On the outside I’m a BBD – big black dog (with a big white bib on my chest). And on the inside I’m one of the FRIENDLIEST, SWEETEST, GENTLEST dogs you could find. Still reading? Good! Here’s my story.

I was given up by my owner a couple of years ago and dropped off at a county shelter in southern Illinois. My family had way too many animals and they couldn’t care for all of us. The folks at the shelter became my family, and they tried their best to make my life as happy as they could. In fact, when they realized what a nice guy I was, they would occasionally bring me to a local nursing home to visit the people there, so you see I am even "therapy dog" material (see photo!). Those were my favorite days because people actually paid attention to me - it was so nice to get a break from the noise and loneliness of my life in a cage. Day in and day out at the shelter folks would always pass me by for the younger, cuter dogs. Then, AFTER 2 YEARS AND 3 MONTHS (but who’s counting?) MY LUCK CHANGED when the folks at Adopt-A-Pet offered to foster me....and it has been a dream come true since then. I finally got a (temporary) home and family! No more Lonely Hearts Club Band for me!

My foster mom tells me she loves me about...a million times a day. She tells me that it's because I'm such a good boy - I never bark, I'm house-trained, I'm one of the most awesome leash walkers she has ever seen, I am 100% trustworthy in the house, I love kids and all humans, I get along with cats and rabbits, and - once I acclimate - I enjoy my canine siblings too, although I would be perfectly happy being the only dog in the house...that would mean more attention just for me.

Right now I'm a little overweight (too many treats + not enough exercise living in a cage at the shelter). But my foster mom and I are now hitting the trails every day, and I feel better already as I get into shape. Probably by the time you read this I’ll have lost some weight and looking more stud-a-licious, like a proper lab like me should be! And, btw, the AAP vet thinks I’m about 7 years old.

So are you the person/couple/family I’ve been waiting for, and am I the perfect dog you’ve been waiting for? If we’re a match, I promise to love you with my whole heart and light up your life.

My adoption fee of $150 includes a vet exam, heartworm test, DHAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, Bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, deworming, flea and tick prevention, heartworm preventative, dental cleaning and neuter.

                       

 

Shaynee (WP-D-4615)

New Arrival!!

Meet Shaynee, a lab mix pup who is about 3 months old and weighs just over 16 pounds. Her first foster home tells us "This is an extremely good dog from what we have seen so far. Great with kids. Very good with other dogs. Confident, playful, but not aggressive. Very, very sweet. She would be a great family dog for a first time dog owner or someone who has another dog."

It seems Shaynee is as sweet as she is cute! In fact, Shaynee means "pretty or beautiful" in Yiddish. We don't know much about her background, just that she was found by the side of a busy highway in Missouri, and turned over to a local rescue person.

Because we do not know what size, weight, shape, or appearance Shaynee will grow into as an adult, only those willing to take pot luck need apply. Because she is still young, she should not be left alone for long hours and will need a stay-at-home person to implement her housebreaking, socialization and general obedience. She will be ready for puppy school right after adoption.

You can meet Shaynee at Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Road, anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750). Although you will want to adopt her on the spot please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Shaynee's adoption fee of $395 includes: vet exam, distemper combo, rabies, and bordetella vaccinations, deworming, flea and tick preventative, microchip and spay.  

     

 

 

Sparky (EM-D-4581)

Meet Sparky! Weighing in at 12 lb., this cute little guy is in the 5-7 year old age range and looks like a Jack Russell Terrier mix to us (maybe a little Corgi ?).

The Good Stuff – Sparky is a fun little dog with a big personality, typical terrier energy and cute as a button. His foster home reports that he’s all about the ball - He lives and loves to play ball so his adopter should know that going in. He’s a snuggle bug and will be happy to share your bed with you at night if it’s allowed.   See him in action here!

The “Needs Work” Part – His big personality also means that he should be adopted to somebody who knows how to be a leader - not an "all love, no rules" kind of adopter. His foster home is working on overcoming what appears to be a history with no training, and she has made significant progress in teaching him what good behavior is. He still has a way to go so we’re looking for Sparky’s new human(s) to take on the alpha role and continue his training. He’s a smart little guy, responsive to correction, so this should actually be fun and gratifying.

Sparky's adoption fee of $250 includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg), dental cleaning, routine deworming, heartworm preventative, microchip and neuter. His vaccinations include distemper, bordetella and rabies.

           

Triscuit (WP-D-4603)

This delightful little treat is Triscuit, a beautiful brindle puppy, currently weighing in at about 18 pounds. Triscuit and her siblings came to us along with their mom Hazel, who is a 55 pound Hound mix. From her looks, we’re guessing her dad was a terrier. But looks can be deceiving: Triscuit is a happy-go-lucky sweetheart of a gal, who is very well socialized, smart, eager to please, and ready to go home to be part of your family. Unlike most pups her age, she is not mouthy and destructive-- she doesn’t even destroy her chew toys!

Because we do not know what size, weight, shape, breed or appearance Triscuit will grow into as an adult, only those willing to take pot luck need apply. She is a typical young puppy, full of puppy sweetness and puppy energy. Because she is still young, she should not be left alone for long hours and will need a stay-at-home person to implement her housebreaking, socialization and general obedience. She will be ready for puppy school right after adoption.
