Copi is a 5-year-old, 29-pound female miniature pinscher / terrier mix from Texas. Copi is overweight but she is definitely has an athletic disposition. Right now, she is low to moderately active but that could change as she loses some pounds. Copi gets attached very quickly. After only a day or two she was already following her foster parents from room to room. She has a slight saunter to her gait that’s adorable to watch as she approaches you, with her tail always wagging. There hasn’t been a single dog yet she is afraid to approach, which is either good or bad because she is so friendly and thinks everyone else is too. Copi likes a lot of naps, but when she’s awake she’s always ready for a quick trot or playtime. She isn’t destructive, though she can get a little whiny when she knows you’re leaving her alone. Her foster parents tend to leave Netflix on so she doesn’t feel so alone whenever they’re out, and so far she’s been great!  Copi is potty trained and will let you know when she has to go by walking over to the door and sniffing around it waiting for you to notice her. Vaccinated for rabies, DHPP, and bordetella. Spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails! Visit our website (www.waggytailrescue.org) for an adoption 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.  Adoptions: waggyadopt@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

Dogwood is 1-year, 28-pounds male corgi mix. A Dog with a capital "D" - sweet, playful with a joy for life. Dogwood loves to play fetch, tug-of war, and roll around on the floor. He is high energy, loves attention and gives just as much affection back. At his age, Dogwood has mostly grown out of the puppy stage, but still has some maturing to do. He is essentially house-trained (with a few accidents during transition as expected), and goes potty outside during walks at least three times a day. Dogwood can be mouthy when playing, but is never aggressive. This precious boy is smart - quite good at knowing what identifies as a toy, but sometimes tries to chew other things. He is also capable of jumping atop counters or tables but is quickly learning what is allowed (and not allowed). Dogwood does have some separation anxiety when left alone in his crate if his humans are out of sight, but quietly and happily sleeps in his crate throughout the night, or if his humans are nearby. Given his personality and activeness, another dog in the home to match his energy and playfulness, would be ideal. Dogwood would also benefit from a family who can provide a constant outlet for his energy - whether that is a fenced-in yard, an active lifestyle, flexible working from home hours, etc. This big-ear boy is the ultimate companion, asking for the same in return. Vaccinated for rabies, DA2PP, and bordetella. Neutered and heartworm negative. Needs microchip.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!

Joan of Arc is an adult, 14-pound female chihuahua mix who came to us from the NYCACC.  While her shelter paperwork lists her as 12 (she was a stray with no history), our vet thinks she is MUCH younger - closer to 4 or 5 due to her activity level and healthy teeth and gums! Initially very shy, once she comes out of her shell and gets used to her environment, she is the sweetest!  Joan is quite food-motivated, which has been a great training tool in helping her settle in to her foster home. Joan is on a special (easy to obtain) kibble, which helps her skin allergies. She loves her greenies as her night-time treat, and she loves story time before bed! Joan is an active girl inside the home. She is playful and loves other dogs, and having a doggie sibling would help her get comfortable and blossom. She likes toys and chews. She also loves to snuggle next to her human on the couch. Outside, she is a bit nervous at loud noises and moving cars, although she does get excited at being outdoors and taking walks. A quiet neighborhood could help her feel more comfortable. Based on her shy tendencies, we think Joan of Arc would be fine around older children who know how to respect a new dog's space. She will make a great addition to any patient family!  Vaccinated for rabies, DA2PP, and bordetella. Spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.  Please contact us DIRECTLY using the instructions below if you are interested in adopting one of our Waggytails!

Tully has beautiful golden fur, is 11 pounds, 5 year old girl who is ready to shower her forever parent with love. She recently arrived from Alabama with her sister Kate, who has already been adopted! She has slowly blossomed and relaxed over a relatively short period with her foster parents and shown her confidence and spark. She loves going out for walks and stopping to soak in all the interesting faces, places, and dogs on the street. At home, she prefers to be curled up in her foster parent’s lap or next to her foster brother. Tully is a bundle of love. She runs cold and happily wears sweaters and her favorite onesie. She’s generally a quiet girl who uses her voice when she needs to or if she’s just really excited to go out for a walk. She walks easy on leash and trots to catch up to her foster brother. She is working on being potty trained and has been doing so well! Tully would do best in a quiet home with another dog.  Vaccinated for rabies, DA2PP, lepto, and bordetella. Spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention due 3/10.
