***We appreciate every application we get, however due to the volume we receive we are unable to contact each individual who sends one in. We will follow up with people we believe will be a good fit for the animal in question. If you do not hear back from us please feel free to send in applications for other animals as well.***
This little guy is a bucket of fun! Dibs is a high energy guy who will need lots of exercise and mental stimulation.
We think Dibs would do best in a home with no other dogs, and as he has never been around cats or other small animals it would be best if he was the only pet in the home.
Although Dibs has not experience with children, we think he would do well with older children who are able to respect his space and boundaries.
Dibs is very social and loves to meet people! While he can be nervous at first he comes around quickly.
If you are interest in meeting Dibs please follow the steps below:
To start the adoption process:
1. View Dibs’ profile: spca.bc.ca and record the Animal ID #
2. Submit an application: https://spca.bc.ca/survey/dog-adoption-application-cowichan/
3. Wait to see if you hear back. We usually contact a handful of people for further questions before booking a meet & greet.
4. If it is a match, staff will contact you to set-up an appointment to come in for a meet & greet!
Thank you so much for your interest in adoption!
