Meet Wilder (shy guy!)

Wilder is a sensitive, sweet, and soulful pooch who needs a loving forever home. Pal's Place rescued Wilder from an overburdened animal control facility in rural Kentucky after devastating flooding hit the area. He is estimated to be between 1-2 years of age and is a very thin 40 pounds. An ideal weight for this fella is closer to 50-55 pounds. Wilder has some of the most expressive and intense eyes we have ever seen, and it seems this guy has already seen a lot in his young life. Wilder is cautious and shy when meeting new people, but with a few kind words, a slow approach, and some gentle pets, he offers some tail wags and gentle kisses. His exact breed is unknown but appears to be a Lab mix, possibly with some type of Terrier and/or Border Collie in his background. Wilder's humble and demure temperament would be best suited to a quiet home with understanding guardians who can give him all the time and patience he needs to feel comfortable in a new environment. We believe Wilder will blossom into the more assured and confident dog we know he has in him with just a little TLC and confidence building! Wilder is quiet and well-behaved in the home and does well with his housebreaking when kept on a regular schedule. He is being fostered in a home with several other dogs and gets along well with his canine companions. He is anxious and eager to meet his forever family; meet him today!

• Wilder's adoption fee to the rescue is $375. He is neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date with age-appropriate vaccines. Wilder can be visited by appointment once an adoption application is submitted and approved by the rescue. To complete an adoption application online, visit http://palsplacerescue.org/adopt/ or email Palsplace1@hotmail.com for an application or more information. We cannot place holds on our dogs for any reason. Please do not apply unless you are ready to welcome a new member into the home within three days of applying.

• Pal's Place adoption fees start at $475 for puppies and $375 for dogs aged six months or older. This fee helps to cover medical expenses needed to prepare dogs for adoption (vaccines, microchips, spay/neuter surgeries, etc.), feeding, transportation, and general care for the dogs. Pal's Place is 100% reliant on donations to care for our rescued dogs.

• Please email Palsplace1@hotmail.com or visit our website, www.palsplacerescue.org, for an adoption application. Pal's Place is a volunteer-run organization. Please allow up to 48 hours for a response. Please also check your spam/junk folder when awaiting an answer; sometimes, replies and applications end up in there!
