These animals have special quirks that make finding them a home more difficult.
As such each animal has a unique set of requirements. Typically this is written in the bio.

Expect an email back that goes over the dog’s specific requirements and confirms that you understand and have what they need. IE if a dog REQUIRES A FENCED YARD…we will double check that you in fact have a fenced yard.
The majority of our resident dogs will require multiple visits from you. Some will require you to take them on a car ride, others will need walks, and others will need you to ignore them and visit our facility as though you are there for us, not them. Then once they start to interact with you, progress to the next steps.
Each dog has unique fears. We will gladly work with you to help you and the dog connect and make a great transition from us to you. If you aren’t willing to put in a bit of effort, these dogs aren’t for you. If you can give them the time and patience they need the reward is amazing. The feeling you get when you see them start to give their trust, when you they finally show you how much they appreciate what you’ve done for them…there is nothing better. Once you’ve had a dog like that you’ll totally understand what makes them special.
Each of our residents are different. Some will be ready to go to a new home after just a few visits…others will need more time, more visits, even some temporary visits to your home, before they’re ready to let go of the safety of us and move in fully to their new lives.
