Local adoptions only, within a 75 mile radius of Quail Valley/Menifee, Southwest Riverside County. Mystery solved! Rescued Jeffrey's breed was unknown, but now DNA testing reveals he is 62.5% American Staffordshire Terrier, 25% Chow Chow, and 12.5% Australian Cattle Dog! Jeff was rescued after being abandoned by his owners, which is actually good because there were no signs of responsible dog ownership. At least now that he is rescued, he has a second chance at a good home and happy life. Handsome Jeffrey's coat is white with taupe brown patches and specks. He weighs about 80 pounds and his estimated birth date is 2/2/13. Jeffrey has some arthritis and dysplasia in his right elbow and takes a prescription anti-inflammatory/pain medicine. He recently had his teeth cleaned and a broken tooth extracted. Some of his teeth are worn down and chipped/broken, but this does not cause any problems and he has no problem eating! Jeff has been neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. Jeff is a big ol' goofy and likable dog. He is friendly with people, including older kids and loves to hang out with his family. He is good on short walks and knows to sit for food and treats. He is house trained and does well in the house. He is a house dog! He gets along well with small dogs and cats, but not with larger dogs who he seems to view as competition and is jealous of. He'll need proper introductions when meeting new dogs. He is afraid of fireworks and loud noises such as thunder. He is looking for a good home for the first time in his life where he will be part of a family who will give him the love and attention he deserves. $50 adoption fee, cash only, which is to help reimburse for a portion of expenses of dog rescue and rehabilitation.Adoption contract required. We are looking for adopters who are willing and able to care for this dog for its lifetime (several more years). Location: Quail Valley/Menifee, Southwest Riverside County. Local adoptions only; within 75 mile radius because we deliver animal to its new home to do a home/yard check. Please note: L.A. and Orange Counties are out of area. We prescreen potential adopters before setting up a meeting. If interested in this animal, please email us with a little info about you, your family, your other pets, your experience as a dog owner (which breed, etc.), where you live (which city, home or apt?), etc. And tell us what type of dog you are looking for--an inside dog, an outside dog or? Thank you. Our adoption process involves meeting the animal by appointment. We have the best interest of the animal in mind and our goal is to find a good, permanent home for each of our rescued animals. We have the right to decline an application if we feel it is not a good match/fit or suitable home. If you like the animal and we both feel it is a good match, an application and adoption contract is completed. A convenient day/time is arranged for us to deliver the animal to its new home to do a home/yard check (to make sure the home and yard is safe and secure). We will collect the adoption fee (cash only) when we deliver the animal to its new home. All our adoptions are on a trial basis because our goal is to have a successful adoption where the animal has a good permanent home and never ends up in a bad situation again. We ask that you give the animal a chance to adjust and settle in his new home and environment. Going to a new home with new people and a new environment is traumatic and stressful. It will take time for the animal to become comfortable around you and his/her new home. This should be a bonding period where you get to know the animal and connect with it, spend time with it and take things slow. He/she will need to get to know and trust you and learn the rules of the house and what is expected of him/her. This takes time, sometimes 2-3 weeks. During this time we will hold the adoption fee and if the adoption is not working out, we ask that you contact us and return the animal and we will refund your adoption fee.
