I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Ed is a 2 year old boxer (??) mix who came to us from a shelter in rural NC where he was picked up as a stray. He is a smallish boy at about 45 lbs. Ed is extremely affectionate. He loves all people and other dogs (we haven't done a cat intro yet) and he gives great hugs! He needs a home with another playful dog and a fenced yard.. No apartments, unfortunately, as Ed has some separation anxiety and will bark for quite a while when left alone. He is doing well with house and crate training, but still needs some work. He did test positive for heartworms and is being treated with Heartgard every 2 weeks. Ed has been neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped and is officially ready for adoption!
Adoption application, reference checks, home visit, and adoption contract required for all animals. Adoption fees vary by animal but are typically between $150 and $200. All animals regardless of age will be spayed or neutered before adoption. Age appropriate vaccinations, microchip, fecal check and heartworm testing will also be provided.
