Adoption Fee: $400
Introducing Shrimp! Shrimp is a sweet and gentle 1-year-old lab mix girl looking for a patient and loving family to give her a forever home. She came to us as part of a group of 24 dogs from a hoarding case in partnership with HSUS. These dogs, including Shrimp, are incredibly sweet but have never experienced life in a home or kindness from humans. They'll need some patience as they learn that their lives from now on will be filled with love and care.
Shrimp is still on her journey to trust people but has made significant progress with the adults in her foster home. She is kind to the kids but she finds their high energy levels overwhelming. Therefore, we're seeking a forever family without kids or one with older calm teens who will help her feel safe and secure in her space.
Shrimp finds comfort in her crate and considers it her safe space. At night, when the house is peaceful, she likes to come out for gentle scratches and cuddles. She absolutely adores playing with her four-legged foster brother, and this has been invaluable to her growing confidence. Therefore, we're seeking a home with another balanced and playful pup to be her companion and continue supporting her on her journey.
Shrimp is already housetrained and demonstrates her intelligence every day. She's working on her leash skills and is still getting used to car rides. Shrimp is a beautiful and kind lady who just needs a little love and patience to unlock her full potential. If you're ready to be that loving and patient family for Shrimp, you can apply to adopt her today at greendogsunleashed.org/adopt.
At the time you are seeing this post, this dog 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 $400.00. 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.
*****Due to the sheer number of animals and applications in our program, coupled with a limited number of volunteers, applicants MUST have patience as we process applications. If you do not hear back from us, the animal may have been adopted. We strive to let people know but sadly cannot offer reasons for denial beyond that. Any harassment of our volunteers will go unanswered and we will simply block you. Our volunteers spend their time working hard to ensure the very best for each animal. Please remember the animal, not the applicant, is our client.*****
