ADOPT CHEVY !
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home. For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=64.
Sponsor a Dog! Sponsors help us provide additional medical treatment beyond basic vetting, and helps offset boarding costs when our foster homes are full. K-9 Lifesavers treats dogs with heartworm, parvo, upper respiratory infections, and special surgical procedures. Our adoption fees do not fully cover the additional vetting costs for these illnesses, and/or boarding. For more information on our Sponsor Program, visit: http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=58.

PLEASE HELP CHEVY! He has been is rescue for a long time and would really, REALLY love to find a family he can call his own. Chevy is a very special boy and deserves a very special family to love him. He has come a long way from the negative past he most certainly endured and he's started to overwrite those bad memories with good memories. When Chevy came to rescue he had wounds all over his body from being beat up by other dogs and that is the reason for his anxiety towards other dogs. Because of that, he takes a little while to trust, but once he does he's fiercely loyal and protective. If you enjoy the feisty, smart, active personality types, then Chevy is for you...he's smart, fast, and furious! He is also a little lover boy but in a cool dude sort of way. Chevy really has become a great little guy and really enjoys sitting by you and getting attention. He is very good about entertaining himself in the backyard and loves to play outside, bask in the sun on the lounger by the pool, chase squirrels, or just sniff around. Chevy has been looking for his furever home for quite sometime and someday he is hopeful the right person or family (with older children, not babies) will be looking for a cool little dude and take him home! Once he trusts his human and learns his new home, he is protective of his domain. Please consider giving Chevy a chance at a loving home, he truly is a wonderful dog with just a couple quirks! Chevy will enhance your life and make you smile after a long day at work.
Chevy is fully house-trained and is good with small dogs (best with small females) once he gets to know them; no big dogs and no cats. He would, however, prefer to be an only dog, if possible. Chevy MUST have a fenced yard to play in since the dog park makes him nervous. He is gentle and kind to adults and children that don't get in his face and he loves to wrestle with his foster siblings and carry around stuffed animals everywhere he goes. If you would consider giving Chevy the very special home he deserves, please contact Dena (email@example.com) to talk in-depth about Chevy.
Your new pet may require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and new owner.
The adoption fee for this dog is $300, which includes basic vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and transport costs. If interested in adopting, please download and complete an Adoption Questionnaire and email to Dena at firstname.lastname@example.org
