MJ is a beautiful girl about 5 years old. She is a super sweet girl. MJ was taken from her previous owner in Georgia because of neglect. Her Animal Control Officer liked her so much she took her home to foster and place, but when she tested positive for Heartworm she contacted rescue because of the time and cost of treating Heartworms. I have been fostering MJ since June. MJ is now Heartworm free and ready for her forever home.
MJ is great with other dogs (but not so good with cats), she would fit into a home with other dogs, or be a good partner for someone. She is great in the house, knows some obedience, comes when I call her (unless she is stalking something like a mouse in the yard), wants to be right by your side. MJ learns quickly and adapts well.
MJ is good with my little dogs, that is to say, she totally ignores them. She would be great with older, dog savvy children. MJ loves to cuddle and have her belly rubbed.
MJ is mostly good walking on-leash. She doesn't try to pull much at all, but she does stop to sniff. With more practice she will learn not to stop every 10 feet to sniff.
MJ is spayed and up to date on vaccinations and preventatives.
To start the adoption process, please fill out our application and contact MJ's foster mom, Sue Weis, at firstname.lastname@example.org. All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Willow's adoption fee is $300, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.
Thank you for considering a rescue!
MJ's adoption is pending.
