**This information is current - when you email you can rest assured we will email back within 24hrs., but usually within an hour of receiving your email!**The rescue support donation is not for the 'purchase' of a dog, but rather to cover the medical and other costs of all dogs in our care. Shelter support donations are NOT NEGOTIABLE for that reason. Please respect that and do not email us to ask. Without ongoing support and adoption fees, our rescue WILL CEASE TO EXIST!**No phone calls, EMAIL ONLY, AlphaMom33@aol.com to get an application, thank you for understanding.** **These dogs are in foster homes, not a shelter setting; therefore we only accept appointments for those reasonably sure they WILL adopt the dog for which they are applying.**   This kiddo is Ryker! Breed: We see characteristics of wire-haired Fox terrier Age: 7-8 years (approx) Energy:  lower energy but enjoys barking Barking: whines often (less when settled in), and does readily bark at noises. Definitely not an apartment dog!  Size: small, around 12" at withers, 15lb. Kids: no kids under 14, that includes visiting grandkids!  Cats:  unknown, but loves to bark at them when he sees them outside the fence Dogs: has been non-reactive with our own dogs, but slow intros would be best (see description below) Health: excellent - his left eye was removed due to previous neglect (dry eye became much worse) When you look at Ryker’s picture, are you thinking, “Nice looking dog!”? Well, yes, he is, but when we look at his picture, we see so much more than that. Ryker has come a long, long way from how he looked when he was found as a stray, probably dumped out of a car deep in the country. He found his way to us in a state of neglect. His nails were long and untended, and one eye was messy and infected from the filth he had been living in. He was unneutered, so possibly he was used in a breeding operation, and he certainly had no experience of living in a house. Now he is neutered, the painful eye has been removed, better nutrition has started to build good general health, he has learned house manners with people, and is starting to learn how to live with other dogs in close proximity. What hasn’t changed is his strong personality, the same strong will and drive that led him to survive whatever his first 7 or 8 years were like. Over the period of months with APUR, he has come to adore his caretakers, and he has learned the routine of their house and their dogs, but he is not above trying to nip (humans) when his surgical site is cleaned, or his sensitive feet or neck are handled. Oh, and every so often he will try to challenge their dogs, and gets put in his place for it.  He has been around one older child and done okay, but is not a dog for children in general. This is a dog who thinks he would like to be the boss of you, but if you are a strong gentle owner able to work with him, this is a dog who will team up with you for life. This is not an entry-level dog. We are looking for an experienced owner who has the patience to work on the details with Ryker while honoring the awesome grit and stubbornness, the energy and spirit that blessed him and kept him going on his way to his forever home. There's a $450 donation to adopt Ryker. Groomer references will be required and checked as well as vet references!    SEE MORE PICS AND INFO on our Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/pages/A-PAW-UP-Rescue-E-WA/92163841238  EMAIL US - AlphaMom33@aol.com TO REQUEST AN APPLICATION-We WILL RESPOND within 24 hours (usually less!) All adopters are required to pick up their new family member HERE, within a week of your application being completed and being approved to adopt. Because this is our home, we have LIMITED SPACE to keep dogs, THANK YOU for your understanding.  The sooner an adoptable dog finds a home, the sooner we can rescue another! ****If you are unable to come adopt for longer than a week, a deposit ($50) and/or a $10/day donation towards boarding may apply!**** *Be aware that if you cannot adopt the puppy you've already placed a deposit on, you forfeit your deposit and it becomes a donation to our rescue.* Thank you for your understanding.      **All our foster dogs and puppies have been vaccinated with Galaxy DA2PPv at least ONE TIME.
