Meet DODGER! *courtesy post- contact Clarinda via email at clarinda_13@yahoo.com for adoption information!

Dodger is a very handsome 7 year old Chocolate Lab. He is neutered and up to date on shots. Dodger  has high energy and is a bit socially awkward. He is a  sweet boy and the best dog, that is, for someone who works from home or involves him in their everyday life. He doesn't need a lot of walking, he can go a couple miles, but he does have elbow displaysia (takes two meds for it, a monthly shot that can be given from home and half a small pill daily). He loves to hike (shorter hikes these days), camp, the snow, cuddling on the couch, or just to throw his favorite toy around in the backyard. Because he is awkward/misunderstood, he doesn't play too well with other dogs, some small dogs okay, but not larger dogs ( he is about 55 pounds). Dodger LOVES kids so a family with children to play with would be perfect! He doesn't require a large home, just a lot of love, and someone to be home as he does have some separation anxiety issues (currently on Prozac but only $5 a month) and is an escape artist, which is our main issue with our community. He is okay for 2-3 hours at time but gets anxiety after that and somehow always finds a way to escape ( or even help other dogs get out around the neighborhood so that he has someone to chase squirrels around with).

About I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

I.C.A.R.E. is an all breed, no kill dog rescue. We rescue dogs at risk of being euthanized from shelters, abandoned, abused, and stray dogs. We also rescue many owner surrendered dogs; which are dogs that can no longer remain in their current homes due to financial or personal issues. I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue is dedicated to reducing the number of dogs that are euthanized in our shelters each and everyday. We focus on rescuing and rehabilitating them in loving foster homes until they are adopted into their permanent homes. We also focus on educating the public regarding specific breeds, rescue, and general information regarding the canine species. We are a 100% volunteer run and supported organization that cannot survive without the help of loving fosters, volunteers, and benefactors.
