Lionel needs a lap
Meet Lionel, this happy little guy is going to steal your heart... and your lap
Lionel has a calm, happy and very easy going personality. He is glad to hang out on the couch, go for a walk or car ride. Lionel is a purebred Shih Tzu with a wonderful soft cuddly coat that is just right for petting. With his terrific looks, unbeatable personality and tons of charm this fluff ball is going to make the perfect addition for one VERY lucky family.

Lionel is around 7 years old and weighs about 15 pounds. He is house, leash and crate trained. He is very well behaved and is a joy to be around. Lionel gets along with other well-mannered, small breed dogs. He is a bit of an attention hog and enjoys making new friend’s with people who come to visit.

To get ready for his new home, Lionel has been fixed and is up to date on his vaccinations. He has been micro - chipped and per our vet, is in good health. His adoption fee is $250.00

We do our best to place our fosters in the right type of home to fit their individual needs, with this goal in mind we have established the following requirements: We will not adopt Lionel into a home with children under 8 years old. His new home must have a fenced yard. A vet reference is required to be considered. Lionel’s breed requires a significant amount of grooming, his new family must be willing to commit to seeing to this need. Homes with breed experience are strongly preferred. If other animals are owned, they must be fixed, under 40 pounds, gentle with other dogs and up to date on vaccinations. His new family must be able to provide regular exercise via walks. Seniors will only be able to be considered if ambulatory and relatively active. ***** FCDF performs a home visit and inspection with the prospective animal. No out of state / area adoption are possible. We are unable to make exceptions to ANY of the listed requirements*****

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with us figuring out if the dog or cat sounds like a good match for you and your situation. We do this by discussing over the phone or through email what type of animal your looking for and evaluating your home and needs. If it sounds like a possible match we move to a meet and greet at your home. After the visit we decide if you would like to move forward and have a trial stay with the animal. The stay is usually for about 3 days to see how well the pet does and how well you start to bond. If for any reason or at any time during the stay you were no longer interested in having the animal in your home a volunteer would come and pick the animal up. If, however you feel like it's the dog or cat for you the next and final step would be for you to sign our adoption agreement stating that you will care for the dog properly and if for any reason the adoption is not working out that you will return him to FCDF.
Our adoption fee for pet depends on the animal.
The money goes directly to our charity to help the next pup or kitty and covers a little of the vet expenses FCDF has already incurred on the adopted animals behalf.
