Dog's Name: Bristol
Estimated Breed : Lab/Italian Greyhound mix
Approximate Age: 3.5 yrs
Approximate Weight: 40
Currently Living at: BOARDING
Adoption Fee: $300
Bristol is a 3.5 year old Lab/Italian Greyhound mix who will play as much as you want to and lay around as much as you want to. This little lady loves to play fetch, so an active household is welcomed! She is crate trained and doesn’t make a lot of noise. She is very loving towards her owners and those she knows well, but timid around others. She needs to be in a home with adults only who are experienced dog owners and know not to let strangers come up to her. She has been in a hundred hours of training at Tecla’s K9 Academy in Elkridge, MD and worked with every single one of their trainers. Bristol is a sweet dog who loves to be around you, but the Italian Greyhound in her makes her scare easily. She deserves to be in a home where she will be loved.
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.
