My husband and I found this beautiful dog on Saturday, 11/12/16, wandering around in our neighborhood. We took him in because we didn't want him to get hit (we live off of a busy highway). It appeared to us that he has been out for a while (he's under weight, has fleas, dirty, etc.), so we kept him in our backyard and fed him until our vet opened on Monday.

On Monday, 11/14/16, we took him to the vet (no chip) for an exam and had him groomed. He has an eye ulcer and we purchased an antibiotic ointment for this. His shots and flea/tick/heart worm preventive (he is heart warm negative) are now up to date. The vet thinks he is between 1-2 years old (his teeth look great). Per the vet, he still needs to be neutered and he needs a small eye procedure done (for an inverted eyelid) to keep the ulcers from continuing to happen (but the eye is healing and the ointment keeps him comfortable).

Our best friends wanted to adopt him, but have since discovered that it is not going to work out. He LOVES being outside, but they don't have a lifestyle that can accommodate this. He is going to need a yard to roam and explore. He loves Porter (our Labradoodle) and they got along great, but he did not like the pit bull in the fence next door to him at our friends house. I think it's safe to say that he will probably not get along with overly territorial dogs (?). He also doesn't seem to mind cats. He is going to need practice with the harness and leash (he pulls badly when on the leash). He seems house trained as long as he has access to the yard (he didn't have any accidents in my house when he also had access to the backyard. We also have plenty of food to donate to help feed him. He is very sweet, loves attention, and his tail never stops wagging.

If interested in giving this sweet boy a home, please contact Rosie Cooper-Neary at rosiencooper@gmail.com.

Our Adoption Process...

For dogs, the adoption fee is normally $150. All dogs are up-to-date on all vaccinations and are spayed or neutered before they are adopted out. The adoptions process begins with the potential owner filling out an application; if that is approved, we will do a home visit to see where and how the dog will be living. We require that all dogs live indoors.

For cats, the adoption fee is normally $100. All cats are up-to-date on all vaccinations and are spayed or neutered before they are adopted out. The adoptions process begins with the potential owner filling out an application; if that is approved, we will do a home visit to see where and how the cat will be living.
