Dog's Name: Birdie
Estimated Breed : feist/Beagle?
Approximate Age: 1yr
Approximate Weight: 25 lbs
Currently Living at: BOARDING
Adoption Fee: $300
Birdie is an adorable little girl. She is fairly calm and very quiet, and is most excited when you come home, and when she gets to go outside and run around. She can be a little timid with new objects and activities, but when you show her they're ok she warms right up. She's very curious. More than anything all she wants is for you to pet her - and for all of your friends to pet her too! If you're not paying attention to her she may try to wiggle her way into your arms to get some love.
Birdie was adopted for a couple of weeks, but didn't get along with the other household dog, so she may do best in a one-animal home. If you're ok with being a one-dog person she is definitely the right girl for you!
Professional trainers who met Birdie said that she needs a some socializing, but that she could warm up to other dogs over time. If you have another animal, we recommend the animals meet before Birdie is adopted. They also said she would probably love agility training, if you're up for it. She loves to run and play, and could make an excellent running partner for a few miles.
Birdie is a great dog, and her previous family was heartbroken to give her up, and hope she'll find another loving family soon!
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, spay/neuter surgery (for dogs over 6 months old), rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dog also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.
