Shelter: Recycled Doggies
Pet Description: Dewey is a Doxy-Chihuahua mix who is approximately 3-1/2 years old. He weighs just 12 lbs. He was adopted from us as a puppy in 2014 and was the "baby" of his house. Then everything changed because a human baby came along. Dewey had a hard time adjusting to the new baby and his family felt it best to rehome him. He is fine with kids (not babies), other dogs and cats. He is very active and loves to play! He is super sweet and loves to snuggle and he likes to run and play with other dogs. He is shy at first, but warms up quickly. He does bark at noises, so he is not a good candidate for apartment living. If you are interested in adopting from Recycled Doggies, please complete an adoption application through our website: www.recycleddoggies.org. THAT IS THE FIRST STEP IN OUR PROCESS. Please do not just show up at an adoption event and expect to adopt a dog that day - we need time to review your application ahead of time, which is why we ask that you submit your application ahead of time so you don't miss out on the dog you are hoping to adopt while you wait for your application to be reviewed. Our adoption fee is $195. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, dewormed, heartworm tested (if over 9 months of age), and microchipped. We do not adopt outside our area, which we define as two hours drive time from downtown Cincinnati (zip code 45202 - use Google Maps to determine if you are within our area) NO EXCEPTIONS. This is for the safety of our dogs, so that in case an adoption does not work out, we can be sure that we can quickly get our dog back. We do not have a shelter or facility - all of our dogs live in volunteer foster homes. In order to not infringe on any more of the time of our foster families, we introduce our dogs to potential adopters at our weekend adoption events posted on our website - please do not request to meet the dog outside of an adoption event as we are unable to grant the request. If you have additional questions, please email email@example.com.
