If you’re interested in adopting a puppy please carefully read the following before you fill out an adoption questionnaire and restraint agreement.
CSRNE Puppy Adoption Checklist:
- Is an adult home most of the day?
- Are you willing to housebreak him and teach him house manners?
- Are you willing to “puppy-proof” your house and endure chew marks on your favorite leather loafers should a slip-up occur?
- Do you have a safe, fenced area where the pup can play with you?
- Do you have the funds necessary to provide veterinary care (booster shots, spay or neuter the pup at six months and microchip) provide flea and heartworm preventative, groom every 6-8 weeks, pay for puppy kindergarten, etc., etc., etc.?
- Are you willing to socialize your pup to other dogs and people and take him to Puppy Kindergarten and at least Level One Obedience training?
- Do you have LOTS of patience, understanding, energy and a good sense of humor?
- The puppy adoption fee is $400 plus a $150 refundable spay/neuter deposit.
If you can answer “yes” to the adoption checklist then please read and consider the following information before you decide to give a home to a puppy. Remember, adopting a puppy is a full-time job for the first year or so. The commitment you make in the first year of a dog’s life can turn a cute puppy into a truly great pet.
To successfully raise a puppy you will need:
Family support and participation.
- Consider all members of the family. Is everyone in favor of this idea? Will mom be the sole trainer and caregiver or will there be help from other family members? Are they willing to go to puppy class? (CSRNE only adopts to families 7 years or older.)
- If you own a dog now, will this dog be an example you want the puppy to follow?
- If you own cat, is your cat used to dogs? Puppy behavior can be very stressful to some cats, depending on their age and health.
