Puma is an 11 week old American Staffordshire terrier mix. She is trying very hard not to potty in her bed. She has no problem peeing on the floor though. Since she is new to our care we don't quite know her personality yet but we can say that she is very sweet and playful. Likes other dogs and loves to cuddle. Hates her crate with vehement passion.

Puma has come a long way in the time she has been with us. In the beginning she was a bit gross but now she is almost entirely crate trained and is doing well in the house if you're prepared to be very vigilant about it. She's very sweet with people if you don't count biting, and she's good with other dogs if you don't count biting, and she's good with cats if you don't count murder. Okay murder is a bit extreme but her play style with cats leaves a lot to be desired. She's a rough little puppy with all the love in the world to give and a lot of potential.

Like all puppies, adopters can expect any puppy to have accidents, chew things they shouldn't, and have other normal energetic puppy issues (jumping, mouthing, general youthful naughtiness). Because this is a guess of breed mixture, we can not guarantee a pets weight and should not apply for a puppy if your place has weight restrictions or you are looking for an ideal weight (you can always check out the adult dogs whose weight we do know).

This dogs doption fee is $225 

which covers the following: spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm testing, dhp/p, rabies, bordatella (agre appropriate vaccines), deworming, and all the care he received while with CVRR.  All animals are on flea and tick and parasite prevention for the duration in fostercare. We are an volunteer group, who process the applications so please be patient and  understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions.   You can expedite the process by providing accurate phone and email addresses for all your references.  Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process .    We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible. When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if the dog  picks you too.  If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee and an adoption contract to be signed.  The adoption fees help cover a portion of the care provided to the animals. All dogs and pups are microchipped and all animals adopted out are spayed/neutered and fully vetted. **All of our animals have a lifetime commitment. If for any reason, the adoption does not work out, the cats and dogs are to come back to CVRR, which is a NO kill rescue.*** The foster family and the rescue volunteers will choose the new home based on the best fit for the dog/cat.
