Karlie is a shy but sweet 4 year-old Chihuahua mix female who came to us along with her sister Heather from a county dog shelter. Both girls were very underweight when they first came to us. We don’t know what their story is but they clearly hadn’t received much attention as their nails were very long and every bone in their bodies was visible. After several weeks of TLC and good food, Karlie has gained a few pounds and, at about 10 pounds now, she’s close to her ideal weight. She’s a little more brave in new situations than her sister but will still need a little time to adjust to new people and surroundings. Since she was so thin and it was so cold when she first came to us, she has been trained to pee pads in her foster home but can transition to outdoor potty breaks in her new home. Karlie does not need to be adopted with her sister. She would probably do fine with another small dog in the home or as an only dog if her family can spend lots of time with her. Karlie’s adoption fee is $200. She’s spayed, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in Karlie. 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 Karlie and to submit an online application.
