Welcome Marie! This special girl joins us from Mexico where she was one of a group of dogs rescued from a rescuer that had managed to only keep her safe from the streets but could not afford vetting and other care. Family Dog was happy to step in and help her get healthy and make her way to San Francisco. Marie was likely mistreated in the past, so she takes a little time to get comfortable with new people. But, when she does she is a loving, calm, and gentle dog. She is affectionate, but also independent and very happy to have a safe, warm bed. She does well on car rides and on leash and is crate trained as well. Marie was not tested with cats but she showed no interest when near a cat in a crate. She loves walks too and would do fine with another dog as long as that dog sibling is mellow and easy going as herself. We think Marie would make an amazing take to work dog, or a great companion for a retired person or really any calm home. This special dog really deserves a special home, and we hope it is with you!
Adoption Fee Details
If you're interested in ADOPTING here are a few things you should know:
All our adoptions begin with a two week trial. You can return the dog for any reason during that period. It's important to us that you have time to make sure your chosen dog is a good fit.
Our adoption fee is sliding scale beginning at $300. Our fees go to support the cost of our program, much of which is veterinary care. It is expensive, so if you're able, we ask you to be generous.
We also offer a free veterinary visit at either Mission Pet Hospital or the S.F. SPCA. The SPCA also offers 50% off any services they recommend during that visit.
Our friends at S.F. Puppy Prep offer a discount to our small dog adopters if you want to take your dog for training at their terrific facility. And we usually have discount coupons on hand for some of our local retail partners to help you get started with your basic doggie supplies.
Our dogs are up to date on their shots and either spayed or neutered when you take them home, or we arrange for the spay or neuter shortly thereafter. Most of our dogs are also microchipped.
