Eddie is a friendly and outgoing 5 year-old Beagle/Doxie mix male who was adopted from us four years ago along with his sister Emily. They were recently returned because their family’s circumstances had changed and they were no longer able to care for them. Sadly, he came back to us very obese. Eddie should weigh about 28 pounds but when he was returned to us, he weighed in at a staggering 55 pounds. He is going to have to lose about 50% of his body weight to get back into shape. Eddie is now on a strict diet and eating Natural Balance Fat Dogs dry food (a bag will go home with him upon adoption). He needs a new home where his family will commit to getting him back to a healthy weight with a combination of lots of walking and a low calorie diet. Eddie is crate-trained and likely to be housetrained too. He walks nicely on a leash and is eager to lose the extra weight so he can start living his life to the fullest. Eddie gets along better with female dogs than other males but would also be fine as the only dog in the home. 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 Eddie. 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 Eddie and to submit an online application.
