Hello Dolly!! My name is Dolly and my foster’s get a kick out of greeting me. I am a fun loving busy girl who loves to play and snuggle with you. I love to play with stuffed animals so be prepared to spoil me rotten with them. Currently I am learning to play fetch with a small stuffed ball. Love it. I haven’t learned to catch yet and don’t understand why my foster keeps hitting me in the face with the soft stuffed ball. I am looking for a special home with someone who would be interested or already has experience with dog training hand signals. I am deaf and have already learned sit and down and want to learn so much more. I would be a great candidate for someone who is active and maybe would be willing to take me to agility training. I would love another dog to play with. I currently live with two older dogs and they get grumpy when I try to play with them. I also live with an older cat who has taught me to keep my distance but still reminds me when I forget. I am crate trained and get a treat to go in. I cry for a short time after I go in and then settle down. I would love to be with someone who is home most of the day. I will require a fenced yard or someone who is always going to keep me on a leash when outside. It is for my safety.

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!
