Dog's Name: Indy
Estimated Breed : Rottie mix (He looks like a petite rottie with a fluffy tail! - cute!)
Approximate Age: ~1 yr
Approximate Weight: 48 lbs
Currently Living at: Boarding
Adoption Fee: $300
Indy, (aka Dr. Jones) was left behind at the shelter for far too long, and we have no idea why. He is a sweet guy who loves, loves, LOVES other dogs. His dream home will have another dog or three - the more the merrier! He is very playful and would love another fun-loving playmate to entertain him. Indy has done well with dogs of all sizes, but cats are a little too tempting - so a kitty-less home would be best. Indy likes his crate, and he loves toys. He will play with any type of toy, but especially enjoys a good game of tug.
Indy can be a little timid when meeting new people. Loud noises can startle him as well. For these reasons, we think he would do best in a home without young children. Once he gets to know you, he is very affectionate and loves scratches and petting.
Indy is a young guy who has plenty of energy, but does know how to settle down. His dream home would have a yard where he can romp with his canine siblings, but he could also be happy without a yard as long as he has an active family to keep him entertained. He loves going on walks and with some leash training would make a great jogging companion.
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.
