Balance Dog Adoption Application
Thank you for your interest in adopting a BASK dog that has not met our requirements for a service dog. Before filling out this application, we would like you to be aware of the following:
We expect that annual costs for food, continued training, and regular annual checkups/preventative medication to cost approximately $200.00 or more per month.
Continued training is mandatory for the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog in order to maintain and improve upon your dog’s manners and control in public.
The donation amount to purchase a BASK dog is $2500.00. Your donation supports our cause, but is not tax deductible because you’re purchasing a dog.
If for any reason, at any time, you are unable to care for this dog, the dog must be returned to BASK at your expense. The dog may not be sold or given to a new owner or a shelter.
This dog may never be bred and must be spayed/neutered between the ages of 18 months and 2 years with proof of said to be sent to BASK at 4 Main Street, Unit E, Medway, MA 02053 within 30 days of neuter.
BASK reserves the right to reclaim the dog for the lifetime of the dog.
