I have spent nights alone. I have been dumped in the country. I have been passed around at least twice in my short life. I have not truly gotten the chance to be a puppy....until I came into rescue.
There I found an amazing foster family. There I have learned what being part of a family means. There I have learned what toys are. I have learned the joys of playing with other dogs. I have learned that I love to cuddle, play, sleep, and repeat. My past may have not been ideal, but it led me to where I am now. And my story is just beginning. I am about to find my forever family and start the adventure of a lifetime. I am really hoping YOU will be the family that I start the next chapter of my life with.
My name is Folgers and I am an 8 week old male German Shepherd mix. I am not sure what I am mixed with, but a possible guess is Great Pyrenees. I am estimated to get in the 70lb range once full grown but it may be a little more or a little less so keep that in mind.
The thing about adopting is you should not do it unless you are absolutely ready. That means you can commit to me for the rest of my life. I am going to be so loyal to my family, and I ask the same in return!
To help make the decision process easier, I had my foster family fill out this questionnaire for me!

He is working on it, and is doing pretty well. He prefers to potty outside with the Big Dogs, but he is very small, so he does use puppy pads in his crate.

He enjoys getting pets and cuddles. He will be a wonderful family dog!
Now that you know everything there is to know about me, it is time to talk logistics!
-How can someone adopt me?
The first step is to fill out an adoption app for me at https://www.pyrpawsandfluffytailsrescue.com/adoption-app
Once this app comes in, it will get sent on to my foster family and they will help me decide if we are a match or not.
-Where are you being fostered?
I am being fostered in Tulsa, OK.
-Would I need to come to pick you up?
Yes, you would need to pick me up. This rescue does not send us on transports. It is less stress on us that way. Plus, you and I can already start bonding on the road trip home! ?
-Can I adopt you even though I don't live in Oklahoma?
Yep, I am not opposed to living in another state!
-How much is your adoption fee?
My adoption fee is $275.
That includes two sets of puppy shots and wormings. I will also have had a bordetella. I will be micro-chipped, have a fecal done, be de-wormed, be spayed/neutered, and will be current on heart-worm and flea/tick prevention
