Dog's Name: Valentino
Estimated Breed: bassett/bulldog mix
Approximate Age: 5 years
Approximate Weight: Currently 58 lbs
Currently Living at: Boarding Foster Valentino until he is adopted!
Valentino the wonder boy! This stubby little guy is a feast on the eyes! What he lacks in stature, he makes up for in charisma. Valentino is very friendly, playful, and also a snuggler too. He does pretty well around other dogs but can be protective of his person. He absolutely adores kids. Valentino has separation anxiety so he'd do best in a home where someone was around often, and he'd do best as an only dog. He also had Addisons Disease which requires monthly medication (about $20 a month). Can Valentino the Lover, waddle into your home and heart?? He is a true lap dog at 58lb!
Your new pet may require a refresher in house-training but is likely crate-trained. 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 us Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org
FOSTER or ADOPT VALENTINO!
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.
