I understand that interactions between child(ren) and the dog must be CAREFULLY supervised. I understand that it is inadvisable and potentially dangerous to leave child(ren) alone and unsupervised with the dog, and I acknowledge that I am solely and fully responsible for the dog's conduct and behavior *

I understand and agree that dogs can dig, chew, have bowel and bladder accidents, and exhibit other undesirable traits or destructive habits unless property trained, confined, or supervised. *
I understand and agree that rescue animals come into contact with many animals and environments on their path to adoption. They may be exposed to any number of common illnesses or parasite due to overcrowding, stress, environment changes and transport. We have started these rescued animals on a path of proper care, but at times illness can and may lay dormant with NO visible or detectable signs.  Some things that trigger symptoms are stress, changes, and climate change. *

C. I agree to inform the rescue should I not be able to care for and foster the animal. *
I understand and agree that a fecal result on an adoptive animal can show negative result, however worms/parasites may appear after arrival. Fecal tests can detect parasites but said animal must have parasites passing/shedding of eggs or segments to test fully positive. *
I understand and agree that failure to properly supervise the dog's interactions with people and animals can have devastating consequences for which I, as the foster, am solely responsible. *
