Tug – Adopted June 2021

About Me

Meet Tug
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age:  3-5

Estimated Weight:  26 Pounds
NOTE: No young children; recommend an adult male be in the home, along with another dog(s) and a fenced back yard; no apartments.

UPDATE – 28 May 2021: Tug is a busy boy who takes his gig as a supersniffer very seriously, even if it means snorting up all the pollen and dust so that he has to sneeze! Please don’t rush him, this is not a job to be shirked. Tug gets along with his foster brothers famously, playfully attacking them to see if their head will fit in his mouth, his innocence has won them over! You can often find them all cuddling in a puddin’pile.

NEW – 22 MAY 2021: Tug ended up with BREW when his owner could no longer care for him. He is currently in a foster home. Here is what his foster mom has to say about this handsome boy:

Tug is doing splendidly in his child-free foster home. He is fearful of young children but is house-trained and is fun to walk on the leash. Tug will yodel your praises when you get up in the morning or come into his area. At first glance, Tug appears high-energy, but as you get to know him, you will spy him lazing on the deck or couch, gazing into the distance. Tug loves the chin scritches and will close his eyes and smile blissfully, or tuck his nose into your elbow. Tug will have his vetting next week.


Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
