Hurley was brought into a vet clinic in Louisiana by a Good Samaritan. He was thin, terrified and had a tranquilizer dart stuck in his side where he had been darted by animal control. A vet tech at the clinic graciously offered to foster Hurley and help nurse him back to health. She has done a wonderful job with this handsome dog and he is now ready for a forever home up North. Hurley is approximately 1 year old and weighs 50#. We aren’t sure as to his breed but our best guess is Belgian Malinois mixed with Australian Cattle Dog. He is smart, sleek and muscular with a very cool brownish/black coat. He is house trained and crate trained, walks on leash without pulling and knows how to sit. He could likely learn many other tricks as he is very smart and food motivated. We think he would also excel in agility because he is very athletic!
Hurley’s foster mom says, “I have had Hurley for a couple months now. He is doing well and adores his foster family. He plays well with the other dogs in my home who range in size from 15-50 lbs and in age from 1-10 years. He does show some guarding behavior (growling) towards the other dogs with food and bones so will need to be fed separately from other pets. He tries to play with my cats, but they do not like him much. He loves to give kisses and has an adorable habit of carrying his food bowl around with him sometimes. Getting Hurley acclimated to a new home will not be difficult as long as the new family is patient and loving. All this guy wants is good food and frequent belly rubs.”
Hurley is neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated, heartworm negative and current on monthly heartworm prevention, and current on flea/tick prevention and dewormer.
All of our dogs are spayed/ neutered before adoption. Adult dogs have had their core vaccines---parvo, distemper, bordatella, and rabies, All dogs are tested and are heartworm negative. In addition they have been de-wormed and kept on heartworm prevention and flea prevention while in foster care. Most dogs come with a micr-chip already implanted. Adoption fees range from 235.00- 275.00 depending on the dog. Many times the adoption fee does not even cover the cost of all of the vetting we have done for a dog. In addition, some of our dogs are fostered in the South and come up once adopted---There is an additional transport fee for these dogs. Please contact the person listed in the bio for more information on a particular dog. We are very careful in placing our dogs--and look for the best home for each dog--All of our dogs are fostered in private homes, with fosters who get to know the dogs and know the types of home that would be best for each dog. Thank you for considering a rescued pet and we look forward to helping you find a great dog match--
