Tinky is a friendly and loving little Shepherd Yellow Labrador mix who came to DogsOnly with her brother Gummy Bear (also on the DogsOnly adoption gallery) after the pups were ruled to be one litter of dogs too many for an already full house. It was decided that Tinky and Gummy Bear should come to DogsOnly so they could find new homes with lots of love, room, and time to help them grow up to be good dogs.
Tinky and Gummy Bear got a nice bath (Tinky was a very good girl during her bath, but Gummy Bear squirmed, wriggled, and cried the whole time). As soon as the two little pups were all nice and clean, and smelled fresh and clean they were allowed to have their dinner, which lasted all of 30 seconds. Dinner was followed by a bathroom break and some playtime, and then the two little pups flopped down together for a nice long nap. That’s how life has been for Tinky since she came to rescue – she’s a very happy little pup, but she still needs a new home with a family that she can live with and love.
Tinky is will probably grow up to be a first-class canine companion. However she is not for a family seeking an "easy" puppy, because there is no such thing. Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Tinky is at the moment, she will grow into an adult canine companion in no time at all. You should also be prepared for the usual trial of rearing a young puppy including the chewing, crying, potty training, and constant demands. For this reason we would prefer that Tinky’s new guardians have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs. Remember, just like kids, puppies grow up real fast, and need lots of patience, love and attention along the way.
To learn more about Tinky you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored text links at the top or bottom of this page. We always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times. You can also meet Tinky and find out for yourself how wonderful she is at the DogsOnly adoption showings (click here for directions).
All DogsOnly foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of the DogsOnly fosters have cats in their homes so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats. We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found.
DogsOnly relies solely on donations and is a 501(c)3 Humane Society. Our mission is to rescue dogs that most other groups are not interested in due to their size, breed, age, health or other various reasons, and to provide education resources for dog owners and those with an interest in the wellbeing of dogs. DogsOnly believes that no dog should be left behind.
