Shrek had a full blood panel run and all systems look great! He is going in for a dental cleaning in mid-October, and is otherwise in really good shape. He gets fish oil with his meals to help with a little dry skin, but has no other required medications or supplements. Shrek doesn't seem to have any mobility issues, and can still handle stairs, but like most older dogs, attention must be given to the day when he will no longer be able to get up and down stairs, since he is a little to heavy to carry easily.
Shrek is good natured but can be selective about his dog friends; similar-sized females would probably be his favorite playmates, though he would be perfectly happy to be the only dog in the family. Initial checks show him to be somewhat intense about cats, but we will do some further testing to see if he can join a family with a dog-savvy cat. He does fine with children and loves all sorts of humans! He is house trained and has excellent manners.
Shrek comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period.
Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $50, or SENIOR for SENIOR - adopters over 65 may name their own adoption fee); more gratefully accepted!)
Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
