UPDATE 9/11: Hobo was recently adopted into a home as an only dog. During that time he exhibited some separation anxiety and was returned to us. He is currently fostered in a home with several other dogs and shows no signs of anxiety in that situation. For this reason, we will be looking to place him in a home with another dog.
Little Hobo is a sweet and loving 6 year-old Pug/Min Pin mix male with a charming underbite. Some might say he has a face only a mother could love but if you’re a fan of underbites, you will find him irresistible! Hobo found himself homeless at a rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline to have more time to find the perfect new home. He was in rough shape when he arrived. He was too thin, his coat was very sparse, and he had a small growth on his side that required removal. It seemed as if he hadn’t had much care in some time. We had the growth removed and the biopsy report showed that it was a grade II mast cell tumor but that it had been completely excised with surgery so no follow up treatment is necessary. The incision has healed well and he is now ready for adoption. He’s also at his ideal weight now and has a beautiful shiny coat. Hobo is a lively dog so definitely has a lot of Min Pin in his family tree. He gets along well with other dogs but might be fine as the only dog in the home too. He loves attention from his human friends. Hobo has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Hobo weighs about 20 pounds and his adoption fee is $200. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm 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 Hobo. 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. Please visit our website at www.caninelifeline.org to see more photos of Hobo and to submit an online application.
