This older gent with the sad face is Fozzy. It’s hard to end up at shelter when you’re 8 years-old but that was Fozzy’s situation. He was found as a thin, matted stray and was living at an overcrowded county dog shelter for about a month with few options before making the trip to Canine Lifeline to take his time finding a cozy home and loving family. Fozzy looks like a Flat-coated Retriever mix although the shelter he came from called him a Chow mix because he has purple spots on his tongue. It looks like Fozzy hasn’t had the easiest of lives. One of his ears is folded over and thickened from a previous hematoma. He really needs a kind and caring person to fall in love with him and give him a safe and secure home for his senior years. Fozzy is a little shy in new situations but gets along well with other dogs and hasn’t reacted to cats at all—even meeting them face to face. He would probably enjoy having another mellow senior dog in his home but could also happily be the only dog provided his humans could spend a lot of time with him. He does well in his crate in his foster home, curling up on a cozy bed after coming in from a walk. Fozzy walks well on a leash and would enjoy daily strolls around the block followed by some cozy naps. He is going to be so grateful to his new family for giving him a chance. Nothing matches the love of a senior dog! Fozzy weighs about 32 pounds now but needs to gain a few more to be at his ideal weight. His adoption fee is $125. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. 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 Fozzy. An approved application is required before we schedule 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.   Please visit our website at www.caninelifeline.org to see more photos of Fozzy and to submit an online application.

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.
