Carrot is a 10 month, 7-pound chihuahua mix with exceptional obedience and leash walking skills.  She is about to finish up a professional board and training program with one of Waggytail's favorite trainers to address some snappy behaviors. Carrot has not displayed any of these behaviors for several months since her training. Her adopter MUST have at least one friendly dog(s) in the home - Carrot loves other dogs (of all sizes) - having a fur buddy will help her remain balanced and give her a good wrestling partner.  Carrot's new pawrent must agree to continue working with her trainer (Brooklyn-based) to make sure everything she's learned is transferred to her forever home.  We do not want her old behaviors to re-surface. Carrot is a fun-loving and spunky little gal who loves to frolic with other dogs of all sizes.  She's a high energy dog and her person will need to be ready to set clear and consistent rules and boundaries with lots of structure in her daily routine. Please confirm in your adoption application that you agree to continue working with her trainer for at least 2 sessions to ensure a smooth transition, as Carrot will make a wonderful addition to your home! Vaccinated for rabies, DHPP, and bordatella. Spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in fostering or adopting one of our Waggytails! Visit our website (www.waggytailrescue.org) for an adoption or foster 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. Simply attach your completed application to an email with the dog's name in the title, and send to: Adoptions: waggyadopt@gmail.com Fosters: waggyvolunteer@gmail.com Waggytail Rescue 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. show less

Scout is a 4-ish years, 10-pound neutered male terrier mix, with pearly white teeth! He was unadoptable at the ACC due to behavioral issues and Waggytail scooped him up and placed him into a top-notch, 5 week Board & Train Program with ClarityK9.com (check him out on their fantastic Instagram stories https://www.instagram.com/clarity.k9/).  Scout is now crate trained, housebroken, with good manners, basic obedience, tolerates cats and other dogs and is terrific on leash during his walks.  Scout's training is a work in progress and we are looking for a dedicated person(s) who will agree to book Scout's trainer for several sessions in order to fully transfer and lock in his good behavior.  Consistency is key to keeping Scout on track for a chance at a long and have a happy life, in a loving forever home, where he will reach new heights in his journey to becoming a perfect play buddy.  Scout's adopter(s) will be taught to safely play fetch and tug with him, which he loves!  In order to keep Scout's newly acquired good manners intact, he must be crated at night and is not allowed on human furniture.  He needs a disciplined owner who will agree to follow a consistent routine of hand-feeding while continuing his obedience training.  If you think you have the time and energy to continue Scout's journey from naughty to nice, and you are located in or near Brooklyn, Queens or Manhattan, please fill out an adoption application.    Scout needs to be an only dog with no small children in the home.    Please confirm in your adoption application that you agree to retain and work with Scout's current trainer.  Tell us a little bit about your interest in learning how to continue his training routines. Vaccinated for rabies, DA2PP, and bordetella. Neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!

Wiley is a 13-year-old, 13-pound, neutered male chihuahua mix who came to us all the way from Alabama to look for his forever family! Wiley is a very low-key guy who just wants to spend his day with his favorite people. He loves the couch, the bed, and all the comfy sheets. Wiley isn't fazed by anything (vacumm, cats, ambulence sirens...) and walks down the streets of NYC like a pro! Despite being a senior dog, Wiley enjoys brief walks during the day, but he may not be a good candidate for a long hike because he gets tired after just a few blocks. ;)  Wiley is house-trained and loves playing with other dogs, especially big ones!  Wiley is up to date on shots, neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped. Dental and bloodwork done on 1/7/21. Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention due 2/1. Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!
