Bogart is a handsome 5 year-old Lab mix who came to Canine Lifeline after he was rescued from a rural county dog shelter that was closed when the shelter director was charged with animal cruelty for neglecting the dogs and cats in her care. Bogart seemed sad and confused when he first arrived here with us but has really come out of his shell in the weeks he’s been here. Prior to coming to us, Bogart tested positive for exposure to the tick-borne bacteria Ehrlichia. Although he had no symptoms of the disease, he was treated with the antibiotic doxycycline for 30 days as a precautionary measure. Bogart is a happy and healthy dog who is now ready to make a fresh start with a new family. He would probably do best in a home without small children and someone who can be patient with him as he adjusts once again to new surroundings and a new routine. Once he feels comfortable with someone, Bogart is a very kind and affectionate dog. Bogart hasn’t had much experience on a leash but he’s more than willing to learn. He’s beginning to get the idea that the leash and fun new adventures go hand in hand. Bogart weighs about 65 pounds and his adoption fee is $200. He’s neutered, 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 Bogart. 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 Bogart and to submit an online application.
