Dog's Name: Nerssie
Estimated Breed: Boxer/Lab/Pit
Approximate Age: 2 yrs
Approximate Weight: 55 lbs
Currently Living at: foster- temporary
Adoption Fee: 375.00
Nessie was rescued along with her 9 pups from a rural shelter in NC. She was very thin and tick/flea ridden but was an excellent mother and has since put on weight and looks amazing. All of her pups found great homes but now it is her turn to find a loving committed home as well. She is energetic and loves to go jogging and is highly affectionate. She can get mouthy when excited so would recommend a home with older children. She has done really well with housebreaking and has had few accidents. She plays well with other dogs but does not like when other dogs become aggressive with her. We also suspect she may have been hit -if you raise your arm suddenly she will cower. She does have a lot of love to give and is very intelligent and very eager to please.
Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly 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 the new family.
Adoption fees cover basic vetting, Heartworm treatment & Medication, spay/neuter surgery, rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and our transport costs.
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.
