Adopting A Shelter Dog

These dogs come without background histories/ past medical information. We present these dogs as we have observed in relationship to age, size, breed, behavior, housebreaking, crate training, good with children, cats, dogs, and strangers. Dogs may present themselves differently in different environments, therefore The Dog Spot Rescue, their agents, volunteers, can not guarantee behavior, age, size expectations, breed, house Training, destructive behavior tendencies, and/or medical issues. All dogs from shelters have been subjected to pathogens from the shelter level which can materialize into disease in the future.  Each adopter must observe for themselves pre-adoption and make decisions for themselves the suitability of said dog and their tolerance levels for transitional time when adopting a shelter dog.  We ask that each adopter take their time when making the choice to bring home a rescued dog.

Smurf is a special boy. He is super tiny (4-5 lbs) sweet and loves to be held. He is not a barker. Smurf does have some type of neurological impairment. Perhaps he was born like that or perhaps caused by an injury at some point in his life. He does not let it bother him and there is nothing to do to 'fix' it. 
He gets around just fine, does well with the other dogs and likes attention from all size people. He likes children but is not going to be the right fit for small ones unless they are very gentle, supervized and not going to expect a playmate. Smurf is a great choice for someone who wants that purse dog to go everywhere with you. He would love that! 
Adoption is $250 and includes his nueter, rabies, worming, shots, heartworm test, bordatella vaccine, microchip and all dogs go home on a two week trial. 
If interested, please fill out an application at and then email to schedule an appointment. Dogs are met in elk grove, ca

Your Adoption Fee covers the following expenses: Spay/Neuter, DHLPP, Bordatella, Rabies (if age appropriate), De-worming and Frontline/Advantage

Please Note: Shelter/rescue dogs have been exposed to many pathogens such as kennel cough, parasites, diseases and conditions some of which may not have been discovered prior to adoption. Any dog that shows symptoms here at TDS are routinely identified, taken for tests and treatment. Our vet bills can exceed $10,000 a month. However, without symptoms, we may miss a disease, or pre-existing condition or parasite. Consider carefully if you have the tolerance for these possibilities. We consider, you, the adopters, the last leg of the rescue process.
