Bucket has been adopted! 08-26-2018
"Bucket" went to her foster home with her two babies - Bert and Balto. The puppies were just days old and when the foster mom received mama and her babies, she put the babies in a bucket (with a blanket inside) while she got their room ready. After that, mama was called "Bucket". She is a great dog with an funny name. She is a young mother and is very happy and playful. She gets along with all dogs and people. She is house broken, crate trained and walks great on a leash. She is the best mama dog that the foster has had and she has fostered quite a few.
Bucket is about 15 months old. She currently weighs about 45 pounds. She is a nice sized shepherd mix. Bucket knows basic obedience commands and will come when called. She is confident enough that she is not fearful but she will submit to another alpha dog as not to cause any trouble. She doesn't bark much accept during playtime. She is a lot of fun. A home with another dog would be best for Bucket as she loves to play with and be around other dogs.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $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. 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.
