Meet ADOPTED! Wally

Please note that all available information regarding this dog is listed here. If you are interested you MUST submit an application prior to contacting us. Inquiries from people who have not previously submitted an application will be discarded. All adoption information such as fees and adoption procedures are listed on our web page, and all information relating to this specific dog is listed below. The volume of inquiries we receive necessitates that we have a completed application before contacting you regarding this dog.

Wally is a 5 1/2 yr. old, male bichon. He weighs about 20 lbs. and is already neutered. Wally's family says he is fully housetrained and very gentle and inquisitive around children. He loves affection and just wants to be near his family. They had a baby 3 months ago and can't give Wally the time or attention he needs or deserves. These are some of the things they said about Wally:

Wally is a great dog with a great personality. He’s very funny and can make us laugh!
He “dances” (sits/stands on rear legs while waving front paws) when he wants attention or on command (especially when a treat is available)
He doesn’t beg for human food, though will remind you when it’s time for his breakfast, dinner, and post-dinner Greenie!
Wally is used to going potty on a leash (we don’t have a fenced-in yard). This shouldn't be too much of an issue for his new family.
Wally rarely barks – only at dogs and occasionally in play. When he does, it’s fairly low and throaty; not a yappy dog at all.
Wally loves to play with stuffed toys and enjoys having bones (especially cow bones filled with something yummy). He likes bringing his bone to show off to any visitor or his owners, when they return home. He also enjoys chasing stuffed toys and shaking them, and will sometimes throw them in the air while he is shaking them. Also enjoys having Kongs with a little peanut butter in the rim.
If you are interested in adopting Wally, please submit an adoption application. Someone from the rescue will contact you once we've had a chance to review it.

DO NOT call the rescue regarding this dog. We do not have the manpower to return the large volume of inquiries we receive anytime a new dog is posted. Our preferred method of communication is email. We check email & return inquiries on a daily basis. We do not return phone calls. All available information pertaining to this dog is already listed here. NO ONE will be considered as a potential family until they have submitted an application. This is the FIRST step in the adoption process! Pls. note that your application must include a VALID, LEGIBLE e-mail address, otherwise it will be discarded! This would seem like common sense, but the number of invalid email addresses we receive are surprising! Click here to submit our ONLINE application! No mailing or faxing is necessary!electronic application!After an application has been submitted, we will contact your current or previous vet to get a reference. We will also contact you (assuming we believe your home is a good match for one of our dogs) to schedule a home visit. NO ADOPTION IS EVER FINALIZED WITHOUT A HOME VISIT FIRST. This is a required part of the screening process. Our adoption fees are listed at the top of our online application. These fees help to offset the tremendous expenses involved in getting our dogs ready for adoption. Pls. read the top of our application for further info. about our fees.An important note about tie-outs!More & more lately we've noticed a trend toward using tie-outs. Many people believe that tie-outs are a cheap alternative to fencing their yards when they are considering adding a dog to their family. These people also don't have the time to WALK their dogs the four or five times a day they would need to in order to avoid housetraining accidents. We believe that tie-outs are a dangerous method of providing your dog with outdoor time. Bichons and similar breeds are small and would be "sitting ducks" for other, more aggressive animals. They also would have no defense against unkind PEOPLE who might pass by... so tie outs are out of the question for these little guys! They need the security of a fenced yard or an owner at the opposite end of their leashes to protect them from the dangers of the outdoors! We hope you will understand that we are only looking out for the safety of our dogs when we say that we have a policy against placing dogs in homes where tie-outs will be utilized.
