Do you prefer a crate trained dog?
Do you have a doggy door?
Do you and/or someone in your household smoke cigarettes or cigars?(please understand we ask this question because some of our rescue dogs have allergies)
If you have a pool, is it fenced?
If applying for a long haired breed.  Are you prepared to pay someone $60.00 or more, every 7-8 weeks to groom your pet? FYI: Please understand that many of the Asian Breeds require a lot of grooming. Matting can occur between the pads of their paws and throughout their coat very easily. It’s recommended to take the dog in for grooming every 6 to 8 weeks. This could cost $55+ for each visit.
ADOPTION FEES - Caring Hearts Rescue requests an adoption fee ranging from $450 to $475 for dogs under 1 year old and for extra medical procedures we performed like dentals. Is this acceptable to you? More information can be found on our website explaining the veterinary care provided by CHR. NOTE: Angel's fee is $650 which covers providing you with a dog trainer because she can be snappy.

Thanks for submitting!
