Dog's Name: Ruth
Estimated Breed: Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 4 yrs
Approximate Weight: 50lbs
Currently Living at: Loving Foster home with another dog
Adoption Fee: $300
Ruth came from a stressful situation, but is currently with a loving foster who is helping her get over her anxieties. She lives with another foster dog and gets along great with all of the neighborhood children. She loves to play outdoors and nothing pleases her more than going for a ride in the car. Ruthie is playful and cuddly and would do best in a more laid back home with someone who has the time to help settle her in and work with her.
Foster mom update: Ruth is very sweet, I have taken her to the office and she likes everyone she meets. We go on long walks with the neighborhood children and like to relax in the evenings.
Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.
Adoption fees cover basic vetting, , rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and our transport costs.
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home. For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=64 or email our Foster Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
