Winnie here! I am looking for my forever home, and quite frankly, I've got a couple of requirements...but don't worry, I'm a sweet girl who is totally worth it. 1. You must pet me often, especially on the bridge of my nose, that's the good spot! If you don't, I will ever so cutely put my paw on your hand to encourage you. 2. I like to be close to you and always will. We're best friends now and that's what best friends do! 3. I'm what humans call, "bossy." I tried to explain that's just good leadership skills but they weren't having it. Because of that I'd prefer to be in a home with laid back dogs or cats, but leader dogs and I might not be the best match. 4. I don't love being alone. Sometimes I get this really anxious feeling when my humans leave and don't have the best time. If you could stay at home with me more often than not or at least a furry friend to snuggle up to, I'd be a really happy girl. I hope I didn't scare you off with my "requirements!" I really just want a home to snuggle up in and be loved forever. Does that sound like something you and your family could offer? If so, please submit an application for me, I'd love to meet you!

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
