Say hello to DeeDee! This girl is as sweet as they come. She is potty trained, gets along with kids, cats, and dogs! Her foster mom, who has fostered umpteen dogs over the last 11+ years says she is the best foster she has ever had. She loves to hang out, occupies herself, asks to go out and kindly, if not vigorously, reminds her people of feeding times. DeeDee loves to go for rides, loves to hang out with her people, and loves to get petted. She is also looking for another doggy friend to play with but would be perfectly fine by herself.
Just like every coin, DeeDee has two sides. The flip side is that she does have serious allergies that are successfully being managed with one prescription pill a day, a specific diet, and a bath every other day. We know that this sounds like a lot but honestly, DeeDee is 100% worth it. She is such a lovely girl that even though she needs additional effort, you will not regret bringing her into your home. DeeDee is also blind in one eye but it doesn’t slow this girl down!! She is game for anything. Please submit an application if you would like to meet her!
KateF is her foster parent. The adoption fee for Deedee is $250, please complete our online application formspeak to a volunteer if you are interested in adopting Deedee. A volunteer will contact 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!
