Locket has been adopted! 08-19-2020
Although we don't know if Locket's ever lived with cats, her fantastic foster set up a meet and greet with a friend's cat and Locket was ok with him. The meeting went something like this:
Locket: You're not a dog! What are you? Cow?
Cat: Dogs are so dumb.
Locket: Octopus? Why are you so small? Why do you only have four arms?
Locket: ::jumps back::
Cat: I won't even waste my time swatting you.
Locket: Octopi are so cranky.
This beauty was very young in February of 2017, as she kept growing after we rescued her from a high-kill shelter. Yep, 2017. Locket couldn't be sweeter to the people around her, older kids included, but is very timid in new situations and new people and will need someone who is patient and can show her how to trust them. This cutie with the bobbed tail loves other dogs and is most comfortable when they're there to show her the ropes. When she first went to her foster home, she was terrified of them. They kept her on a leash in the house, which didn’t give her the option to stay away from them and encouraged her to bond with them and, after a couple of months, she’s follow her foster lol anywhere and allow her to touch her, etc. Locket is good in the house, potty trained, and will let you know when she needs to go outside. If you have a big heart and are willing to give a dog some time to trust, this young beauty will give you years of happiness.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
