Gracie’s foster mom calls her “Gracie Lou Freebush” (from the Miss Congeniality movies) because she is a little bit rough around the edges but she is a pretty girl who tries hard to please. Gracie is a 3 year old 53#, Boxer x Hound mix. Gracie was rescued from a high kill shelter in Louisiana and is now healthy and ready for a forever home up North. She is housetrained and crate trained. Gracie pulls a bit on leash but is getting better… she would likely benefit from a halti or gentle leader for walks. She knows how to sit for a treat (and she looooooves treats). She loves everyone she meets and even gets excited about going for outings to the vet. Gracie is excellent with kids and has been around ages 4-13. Her size and energy level may not be a match for small children though. The other dogs in Gracie’s foster home aren’t very playful but she has play dates with a friend’s Labrador and they play non-stop. Gracie has not been tested with cats. Gracie’s foster mom says, “She is a bundle of goofy energy who would prefer an active home. She loves to play and chase bugs in the yard. She gives tons of kisses and never turns down the chance for a belly rub. While she is playful, she mostly loves to just be with her people and can be found under my feet while I cook dinner.”
Gracie is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccinations and current on monthly heartworm/flea prevention. Upon rescue, she did test positive for heartworm but she breezed through treatment and is now heartworm free and ready for her forever home...please email us at TheChiSociety@gmail.com to apply for Miss Gracie Lou..:)
All of our dogs are spayed/ neutered before adoption. Adult dogs have had their core vaccines---parvo, distemper, bordatella, and rabies, All dogs are tested and are heartworm negative. In addition they have been de-wormed and kept on heartworm prevention and flea prevention while in foster care. Most dogs come with a micr-chip already implanted. Adoption fees range from 235.00- 275.00 depending on the dog. Many times the adoption fee does not even cover the cost of all of the vetting we have done for a dog. In addition, some of our dogs are fostered in the South and come up once adopted---There is an additional transport fee for these dogs. Please contact the person listed in the bio for more information on a particular dog. We are very careful in placing our dogs--and look for the best home for each dog--All of our dogs are fostered in private homes, with fosters who get to know the dogs and know the types of home that would be best for each dog. Thank you for considering a rescued pet and we look forward to helping you find a great dog match--
