Those gorgeous hazel eyes want nothing more than to please. Consequently, Kauz is right behind you, ready for your next cue. He is fond of his walks and would really love it if you could throw some jogging into the mix, too. Kauz is just growing out of the puppy stage so he is pretty energetic and would definitely do well with an outdoor lover (i.e. hiking, biking,etc.) He is still a tad insecure and will need some more positive reinforcement to boost his confidence, but he will be sure to thank you with kisses in return and will likely emerge into a confident young adult. Kauz does better with his person nearby, so home where he is not left alone for long stretches of time or where he can be taken to work would be best. Kauz is great with other dogs, and would do well in a home where there are other canines to cavort and snuggle with, too!

60/6/60 Adoption Program, Partnering Senior Animals with Senior Friends -- If you are 60 or older and adopt an animal who is 6 or older, you'll get 60% off the adoption fee!

Adoption Criteria (Non Pit Bull Type Breeds):
In order to qualify as an adopter, you must bring proof of home ownership or your rental contract showing you are allowed to have pets before the adoption can be completed. If you're coming to adopt a new family or household pet, please bring your family members or other members of the household with you to the shelter -- including any other dogs in the family. We want to make sure your new dog is a good fit for both 2-leggers and 4-leggers alike.

Additional Adoption Criteria (Pit Bull Type Breeds):
If you're applying to adopt a pit bull type breed, in addition to the standard adoption criteria, your rental contract must specifically state you are allowed to have a put bull type breed dog at your residence; you must be over 25 years of age; and you must pass a home inspection before the adoption can be completed.

As an added bonus, when you adopt a pit bull type breed through BACS, you can attend Bad Rap's Pit Ed training classes for FREE (normal fee $100). These classes are extremely popular and can have a 6 month waiting list. But, when you adopt a pittie from us, you get to skip the wait and start attending classes right away. You won't find this incredible opportunity through any other shelter. You can read more about Bad Rap's Pit Ed on their website:
