The phone number listed is a message phone and I do not get to answer or return calls on a daily basis. EMAILS ARE THE FAST TRACK! EVEN IF IT IS QUESTIONS JUST EMAIL ME :-)
We take dogs out of shelters, we have been overwhelmed with owner surrenders, we get them from breeders who not longer want them anymore. REALITY IS THE PET POPULATION IS OUT OF CONTROL. THERE IS NO LACK OF DOGS OUT THERE WHO NEED RESCUE!
WE WILL TAKE THE SICK AND AGGRESSIVE DOGS TOO SO PLEASE IF YOU HAVE A DOG TO SURRENDER LET US KNOW!
All the dogs live here with us in our home. No dog sleeps outside! (unless it is tanning time in the back yard)
All the dogs are spayed / neutered, up to date on shots, crate trained, potty trained or in the works, doggy door trained, given heart worm and flea prevention, and in most cases micro-chipped.
Each dog is different so if you have specific questions please just email me!
