Killer, who if you haven't figured out yet- is not a killer at all ;) We kept the name, honestly because we found it to be so untrue its kind of funny & he responds well to it.
He was surrendered to the shelter on December 23rd. The day before Christmas Eve. The owners said his name was Killer & they have had him for 15 years!! They said he isn't good with cats, dogs or kids!! I still wanted to give him a chance & go meet him at the kennels.
When I did he let me pet him & while scared, seemed sweet. I decided no way was this little guy going to spend Christmas on cold cement just to be euthanized come early next week. So I took him home, bought him a sweater, new collar & told him- welcome to the first day of your new life :)
Killer has had zero issues with dogs or cats. I would still recommend no young kids as he gets nervous of fast movements & does better with confident attitudes.
He is mostly quiet in the crate, goes to the bathroom outside, occasionally gets playful & rough houses with the other dogs & loves to go on walks :) Our vet doesn't think he is 15- more so 8-10 years old. So hey you could still have another 10 years with this little guy! He has recently started working with our dog trainer & learning the place command, how to heel, wait for his food & building confidence over all.
His adoption fee is $50. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped & had a recent dental cleaning. He has a heart murmur & takes a pill for this easily. He LOVES veggies & also enjoying a raw diet! His adoption will come with some guidance on training & nutrition!
Let us know if you're interested in meeting this handsome dude :)
