What if the dog doesn’t work out in my home?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If, for any reason, your adopted dog does not work out in your home after a basic adjustment period, Dogs Without Borders will accept the dog back to re-home.  However, we ask for your patience in finding a suitable foster before you can relinquish it.  If the dog must be returned immediately, it is up to the owner to keep it at a boarding facility until a proper foster home is found.  Since we do not have our own kennels, we cannot take returned dogs on an immediate basis.  We are also here to guide you through any complications that may arise in terms of behavior or health issues.  We are not certified trainers or veterinarians, but we do know a thing or two about dogs and hope that our guidance will help prevent the unnecessary re-homing of a dog.

Please consider hiring a trainer, behaviorist, or attending a class.  You can see a list of recommended professionals here.
