****PETronus Rescue endeavors to include all pertinent information for each of the dogs within our organization with regard to approximate age, potty training status, kennel training status, temperament, activity level, dog/cat friendliness, etc in an effort to give those considering adopting as much information as we have. It is likely that we do not have the answer to any other questions, but will do our best ****
Piggy is a female staffy mix dog who is estimated to be about 8 years old. She is dog selective, would do well with a submissive and calm dog her size or similar, but cats and smaller dogs are a definite no. She does fine with her fosters 13 year old daughter, and has been around kids as young as 8 with no problems. She likes fetch, needs work on her leash manners (a lot of work!), and honestly has a surprising amount of energy for an older lady. For the most part Piggy just wants a couch to lay on with you and head pets.
Piggy was heartworm positive when we pulled her from the shelter, but has since received the 3 injection treatment. It will be 6 months to a year until she tests negative.
All PETronus Rescue dogs receive basic vaccinations (distemper/parvo, bordetella, & rabies), spay/ neuter, and microchip prior to adoption. We also treat any know medical issues, including heartworms.
Our dogs live in foster homes while they wait patiently for their forever families to find them. This is beneficial in that they learn house manners, crate training, housebreaking, etc while they wait and we are also able to get a very realistic picture of their energy level, temperament, etc so that we can place them in a home that is the best fit.
Our adoption fees are $200 for dogs over 1 year of age and $250 for dogs under 1 year of age. Puppies receive 3 rounds of puppy vaccinations.
