  5. Once you've found your new family member, a volunteer will schedule a home check to make sure it's an appropriate and safe environment.

  12. Loofah
    Loofah is most likely a wolf hybrid. We can't know for sure without a DNA test. Wold hybrids are not like an average dog. Often a person sees a wonderfully well- behaved example of a particular dog breed and decides they want one "just like that." without seeing all the work that went into creating that well-behaved animal. If you have ever had a dog with which you had problems and you gave up the dog - STOP HERE - don't get a wolf hybrid!! It won't be different, it won't be easier or better, it will be WORSE. If you're still reading and still interested, fill out an adoption application and we will talk. Please note: - We will NOT adopt more than 4 hours from Reno, NV - We WILL require a home check AND a professional dog training class Adoption Fee: $250
