Additional Adoption Information

Submitting an application does not mean you are commiting to a dog, nor does it guarantee you will get that dog.  It is simply a tool we use to help both you and us identify a good potential match for your family and lifestyle,

Groomiing is a crucial part of a dog's care.  Grooming can be expensive and its important to budget accordingly.  Regular grooming is essential to keep their coat healthy and shiny.  Grooming helps with shedding and promotes good health and well-being,
