DHS does not have a facility. All of our animals are housed in foster homes. Therefore, we require having a completed adoption application on file before we ask our foster families to rearrange their schedules for a meet and greet or answer individual inquiries. And, please be patient, we are staffed only by volunteers. It may be a few days before you hear from us.
Duran is a very athletic but high energy dog with a very high prey drive. He will chase anything that runs from him but won't hurt it when he catches it. And, he does catch a lot (usually the rooster or our cat) because he is fast and can jump the moon. He would make a great agility dog. He is affectionate and learns quickly but he needs gentle corrections as he has been treated harshly in the past and needs confidence.
All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
Since all of our animals are housed with fosters, we ask that you submit a completed application before we answer individual inquiries. Submitting an application never obligates you to adopt but we will have a better understanding of your needs so that we can better answer your questions.
