Meet Bucky

Bucky is a sweet boy! He and his siblings were born to a blue heeler mother dog. We don't know the breed of the dad of the litter. They have lots of energy and would love to have a yard to play in.

Not recommended for someone who has other dogs. He loves his brother but others not so much, especially other male dogs. He is aggressive to all other male dogs that he has been around except his brother Bucky.

Our rescue is in Texarkana, Texas. Once a month we transport all pre adopted dogs and puppies to the three locations in Michigan and Illinois.

Next scheduled transport date,

to Springfield, Illinois
Bourbonnais, Illinois
Kalamazoo, Michigan

You will choose your pick up location on the "Transport Roster"

Total cost of adopting Bucky is $175
$75 goes toward transport expenses, primarily fuel and the remaining $100 goes toward vaccinations and veterinary care, food and shelter. $75 is paid to secure his transport and adoption and hundred dollar adoption fee is paid when you pick him up on Saturday, at the location of your choice from the three listings in Illinois and Michigan.

Please go to Greg King, canine recovery on TikTok and Greg King on Facebook to see what we do in the name of rescue in Texarkana, Texas and surrounding areas. You can see videos of past transports/pickups in Michigan and Illinois.

All of our dogs and puppies that are pre-adopted, which means they have an approved application and transport fee has been paid, can be picked up at one of three transport pickup locations, regardless of what the adoption listing shows. PetFinder only has the option to pick one location for each puppy listed, but then on the “transport roster information form”
you can choose either location for pickup.

Once adopted, he will be examined by a veterinarian in order to receive a health certificate for out of state travel. At the time, his rabies vaccination will be updated as well.

Once you complete the application for adoption, we will process your application and if approved, you will then receive an approval letter and a second form for the transport roster information.

Before the status changes from "adoptable" to "adoption pending," the $75 transport fee must be paid to secure the adoption. At that time, we stop accepting applications for that particular puppy/dog.

Even though you receive an adoption approval letter, the puppy will not transported unless the transport fee is paid. Consequently, if another applicant is approved later, but pays the transport fee first, the applicant who pays the transport fee secures the adoption of that particular dog or puppy.

It is the responsibility of the new owner to have an unaltered puppy spayed or neutered at five to six months of age as outlined in the adoption contract. Dogs older than six months should be altered within 45 days of adoption.
You will receive the adoption contract via email after you pick up your pet.
