Adoption Fee: $375
When people first meet Lacey they always comment on what beautiful big eyes she has, and she sure knows how to use them! But she also has such nice long legs for a little dog, making her quite the walking partner. She is a 2 ½ year old beagle who has a hilarious strut and LOVES to go for walkies and "sniffaris." She enjoys meeting up with neighborhood dogs of all shapes and sizes for her walks, and she gets very excited to see people she has met as well. She is a great yard and garden supervisor, and enjoys her opportunities to sunbathe and do rollies in the grass. She also proudly takes on the role of the nosey neighborhood watch from her foster home's deck.
Lacey does seem to enjoy having a doggy companion/sibling in the home, but prefers a housemate that knows to respect her space. She is good about being crated for meal time, bed time, and when the human is away from the home, but she sure does love to do zoomies when that crate door opens! She is not much of a barker in the home or out in the yard, but instead more of a thoughtful observer. Lacey does take medicine for some generalized anxiety, but it is very manageable and the medicine is fairly affordable. She is not a huge fan of car rides, but if you can walk someplace, she will go absolutely anywhere with you!
We are looking for a home with no children, a predictable schedule, patience to let her blossom, and a commitment to positive reinforcement training. Her Foster Mom has been sharing her adventures on Instagram at @threehoundnight!
At the time you are seeing this post, Lacey is still available for adoption. But please know that we may be working on multiple applications already, and any one of them could be approved at any time. Please READ THIS ENTIRE DESCRIPTION and complete an adoption application, if you are interested in any of our animals. Application at www.greendogsunleashed.org If you send an inquiry to ask if the dog is still available, or just tell us you are interested, your inquiry will not be answered. FILL OUT AN APPLICATION. We can do NOTHING without that. No, we cannot tell you if he would be a match for your family without seeing an application. PLEASE KEEP READING for info.
*/*/* PLEASE NOTE: The first communication you will receive after completing an application will be an email response, which will have instructions on how to proceed. Please check your inbox AND spam folders for the next 48 hours, for this email. We will not begin processing an application without the information requested in that email. */*/*
We are happy to consider applicants from out of state on most dogs. Please read the description to see if this dog is an exception. If the applicant is approved to adopt, they MUST be willing to come to our location in Troy, VA, for a meet and greet. If all parties agree that the pup and family are a good fit, they would take the pup home at that time.
For more information about our mission and for an APPLICATION for adoption, please go to www.greendogsunleashed.com.
GDU does ask a minimum adoption fee of $375.00. This does not even come close to covering all expenses created by animals while in rescue. We are funded solely by the angels and volunteers willing to donate time and finances. This minimum fee includes DAPP, rabies if age appropriate,, heartworm test and preventative, if age appropriate, and flea and tick treatment, as well as neutering or spaying, if the animal is medically sound to undergo surgery. In an attempt to avoid tummy upset from a sudden change of food, the foster family may include a small, transitional bag of the food the dog/puppy has been eating. And if the dog/puppy has grown attached to a special item (like a toy or blanket), they may send that along, as well.
*/*/* Young puppies will receive age-appropriate vaccines, and will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Adopters may be required to provide additional puppy boosters and at 16 weeks of age, a rabies vaccine. Future annual vaccines, testing and monthly heartworm preventative are REQUIRED, and will be the financial responsibility of the adopter.
