Dog's Name: Ruth
Estimated Breed: Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 4 yrs
Approximate Weight: 50lbs
Currently Living at: Loving Foster home
Adoption Fee: $300
Ruth came from a stressful situation, but is currently with a loving foster who is helping her get over her noise anxieties. She loves to play outdoors and nothing pleases her more than going for a ride in the car. Ruth is playful and cuddly and would do best in a calm home as an ONLY dog, with someone who has the time to help settle her in and continue to work with her on anxieties.
Ruth is housebroken, good on a leash and obeys many commands. She is a very smart girl who has full run of the house when her foster mom is away.
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.
