About Franz (AKA Ferdinand)

Adoption Fee: $450

Franz is a 2.5-year-old, 15-pound male terrier mix from the Dallas ACC.  Franz has been returned to us twice for biting his female owners on their hands. He's been training with an experienced foster for a while now and it's time to continue his training in a forever home with no children. We know that times are difficult and many are in need of a therapy dog to cuddle with, but Franz is not the right fit for that role.  Franz is a work in progress and will only thrive in the hands of a firm and reliable leader.  We are looking for a special adopter who will be committed to working very hard on getting this boy to the next level in his progression.  For the safety of his adopter, Franz requires a consistent routine, daily exercise, and strictly enforced rules and boundaries (no human furniture, no laps & limited affection) while he continues practicing the good manners he's learned.  As fluffy and cute as Franz is, he cannot be coddled or treated like a baby- doing so triggers unwanted behaviors.  He is very quiet in the house and sleeps well in his crate alone or when the owner is home.  Franz does well with other small dogs but has expressed interest in chasing cats.   Franz enjoys playing fetch inside and practicing training and engagement games.  Outside, he loves exploring the city on long walks, meeting people, getting pets from everyone he meets, and playing with other dogs in the park. He is house-trained and happy as a clam during groomer and vet visits.  Franz's adopter will need to communicate regularly with us during the first few months to ensure a safe and successful transition.

Vaccinated for rabies, DA2PP, and bordetella. Neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative. 

we cannot guarantee the exact age of any adoptable dog, or final size of any of our adoptable puppies. We rely on the information provided to us by veterinarians, shelters, owner surrenders and other circumstances bringing the dog into our rescue.

Bow Wow is a 3-year-old, 12-pound male chihuahua/terrier mix. He is part of our hoarder group of dogs from Alabama and while he is still nervous, he is coming along! The foster reports that Bow Wow (nicknamed "Teddy") is a sweet and quiet boy when he is comfortable. He prefers to spend his time in his "safe spots" of either his crate or his cozy corner on the couch. His typical day consists of using a wee pad in the morning, spending his day lounging on the couch and watching his foster siblings, and trying new and yummy treats (he loves yogurt!). He recently began asking for belly rubs and loves head scratches.  He is food motivated, which is important for his continued training. His current foster hand feeds him to build trust. He is easily startled, though, and has nipped when he was accidentally backed into a corner in the bathroom. This is a sweet pup who needs time and patience to blossom, and (along with all the other hoarder dogs we took in from the same group), will settle into a home with a nice and quiet routine. In the evening, he uses his wee pad and settles into his crate overnight without a peep.  If you are looking for a quiet companion to keep you company at home, Bow Wow might be the perfect fit for you. We recommend a home without young children, though, as they have a hard time respecting dog boundaries. Bow Wow seems to enjoy watching his foster siblings but has not yet played with them, so a home with or without dogs should be fine. Vaccinated for rabies, DAPPv, and bordetella. Neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention due 11/6. Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails! Visit our website (www.waggytailrescue.org) for an adoption application. It is important to fill out an application as soon as possible for consideration, and we require a complete application for you to meet an animal.  Adoptions: waggyadopt@gmail.com Waggytail Rescue CANNOT guarantee the exact age of any adoptable dog, or final size of any of our adoptable puppies.

Bright Eye (affectionately known as "Teen Wolf" to his foster family) is a 4-year-old, 14-pound male Terrier mix from Alabama. He is striking with his chocolate coloring with white accents, crests of fur, and bright eyes with a deep soulful gaze.  Bright Eye came from a hoarding home in which he lived with about 50 dogs. He arrived timid and scared of everything. As he started to relax in foster care, he started to learn how to enjoy being a dog. Though he is still hand shy, he is becoming more and more confident each day. At first, Bright Eye stayed in his crate for most of the day, but now prefers to lounge on the couch. Like a puppy, Bright Eye has periods of play as he jumps and prances around with his long legs but then passes out for long deep naps. He is super sweet and gentle as he approaches people, gently smelling and licking and happily sitting while watching. He does not yet welcome pets or human touch from the female member of the household, but has taken well to his male foster and accepts pets from him. He will also follow him outside to explore the yard.  Bright Eye is curious about the dogs in his foster home and follows them and their lead. He loves to crash on the couch with other dogs! He is currently fostered with cats and does well with them. Bright Eye is mostly wee wee pad trained, having accidents only on rare occasions. He likely has never worn a collar or harness before, and will need continued training to walk on a leash. Right now, he goes out in a fenced-in backyard off leash, but is still nervous outside and does not use the bathroom outdoors. Bright Eye would do best in an adoptive home with *a confident, playful dog* and without small children, as they will scare him. The humans in the home must understand that he will initially need some time to come out of his shell, and once he does, he is a sweet pup that makes you laugh with his silly face and playful antics. Vaccinated for rabies, DAPPv, and bordetella. Neutered and microchipped. Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention due 11/6.

Jennifer is a 2ish-years, 40ish-pound female shepherd mix. She came to NYC with her newborns who are ready to go to their homes which means mama is also ready for adoption. Jenny is a lovely girl, great on a leash, but needs to get used to potty outside and not on pee pads (meant for her babies). She is great with kids and dogs - but not so much cats and ducks. Jenny has a sweet and gentle temperament - but growls if another pet approaches her bowl while she's eating. This gorgeous girl is fairly quiet, not a huge barker. Jenny has medium energy and loves running around with her humans. Vaccinated for DAPPV, bordatella, and rabies. Microchipped. Needs spay.

Sunshine is a 4-year-old, 7.5-pound chihuahua mix. She’s loves attention and her happy place is right by your side. Sunshine had a wonderful first 4 years of her life, living in a quiet rural home with her elderly owner. However, she was tragically left alone in her home for about 6 weeks when her owner passed, and she's learning to trust and open up again. Sunshine needs a quiet home where she’s the main attraction and doesn’t have to share you with other pets (or many other people). She is a little nervous at first but really starts to blossom and shine when she gains confidence and feels secure in her surroundings. She is at her best when she knows her boundaries so she requires some patience and training in the beginning. While she has not bitten, when she is pushed past her comfort zone, she can be snappy, so she needs an understanding owner who has experience and patience. Once she bonds with you she will never be far from your side. Her hobbies include napping, eating snacks, and sitting on your lap for head scratches. We are working on getting her weight down so small meals in the morning and evening are her schedule, as well as low-fat snacks. She gets a treat here and there for good behavior but her absolute favorite reward is a nice scratching or lap time with you. Sunshine, while blossoming in her foster home, has not yet been outside on a leash and uses wee pads like a champ. She is a bit nervous at handling, so we need an understanding adopter who will continue to work on her training.  Vaccinated for rabies and DHPP. Spayed. Needs microchip.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!
