Brooklyn is a gorgeous 3-4 year-old Border Collie mix female who was adopted from us about a year ago but recently returned because she was not comfortable with having visitors in her home. She also never accepted the adult son who lived in the home. Brooklyn may be more comfortable with women initially than men but since she’s been back with us we haven’t observed any issues meeting people. She walks beautifully on a leash (unless she sees a squirrel or a deer!) and has been friendly meeting women, men, kids, and other dogs on her walks. In her foster home, she is used to walking 4+ miles per day so we are looking for a home for her where she will be able to get plenty of exercise. She’s been great with the other dogs in her foster home but can be protective of her food occasionally around other dogs so feeding time must be managed properly if she is to live with another dog. Although there are no cats in her foster home, she does seem overly interested in small animals so would probably do best in a cat-free home. Brooklyn is crate-trained and has had no accidents in her foster home so she is no longer crated when no one is home there. She sleeps in bed with her foster mom and is very affectionate without being needy. Once Brooklyn makes friends with someone, she is very loyal and devoted. She’s a smart girl who will sit nicely for a treat. The sky’s the limit for what this girl can learn. Brooklyn weighs about 39 pounds and her adoption fee is $200. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. Brooklyn recently had her teeth cleaned and she now flashes a very pretty smile. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Brooklyn. An approved application is required before we set up meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.

About Canine Lifeline

About Our Rescue Group...

Canine Lifeline is an all volunteer 501(c)3 organization with a mission to save adoptable dogs from being euthanized at shelters due to overcrowding or treatable medical conditions such as heartworm. All of our dogs are in foster homes throughout northeast Ohio.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Canine Lifeline takes adoptable dogs to Petco in Macedonia most Sunday's. We also participate in many adoption events throughout the summer months. Please check our website at www.caninelifeline.org for the most current adoption event listing.

Our Adoption Process...

All Canine Lifeline dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations including a one-year rabies, and are on monthly heartworm preventative. In the warmer months of the year, our dogs are also on a flea and tick preventative. The adoption fee for dogs 7 months up to 7 years of age is $200. Senior dogs may be adopted for a reduced fee of $125. Puppies 6 months and under are $275. Since all of our dogs come from shelters and have been stray or abandoned at least once in their lives, we want to make sure that their next home is for keeps. That’s why each adoption comes with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a perfect match before the adoption is finalized.
