BEAUTY HAS AN ADOPTION PENDING. Beauty is a 2 year-old Great Pyrenees/Border Collie mix female who was surrendered to an overcrowded rural county dog shelter by her owner. We don’t know what the circumstances were but it seems as if her previous owner didn’t take great care of her since she arrived at the shelter with horribly matted ears and tail. Beauty is eager to leave her past behind and make a fresh start with a new family. She gets along well with other dogs in her foster home and loves to run and play with them. She has been adopted and returned twice though for dominance issues with other dogs. She does play rough and, if there's another dog in the home, would do best with an active young male dog as a companion. Beauty came to us from a rural shelter and had likely never been on a leash much before arriving here. She has been leash reactive when meeting new dogs she doesn't know either at Petco or on walks so will need an owner who understands how to work with this behavior and is willing to work with a trainer on this. She would be most comfortable living in a home in the country with a secure fenced yard so she doesn't have to encounter lots of new dogs on a daily basis. Beauty is very friendly and affectionate with people so would probably be fine as the only dog in the home so she could get all of the attention for herself. She has excellent crate manners in her foster home so should be able to master a new housetraining routine in her new home quickly. Beauty does not seem to like cats so should have a kitty-free home. Beauty weighs about 56 pounds and her adoption fee is $200. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in Beauty. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
