8-6-17 Adoption Pending
2-11-17 Houghton Zac comes into rescue, by way of the UP. He was adopted from New Mexico at around one year of age, after his second tour there. He was at the shelter as a 6# pup and neutered as a 6# pup, so he is up on legs as an adult.
The reason for his surrender is due to a 2 year old in the home who was getting knocked over by the dog in his excitement. During the summer they send him to Idaho to family, which hasn't worked out too well. They now live in town, and they don't get him exercised as well as they want.
He is coming up on 6 years old, and is overweight at 71 pounds.
Our adoption fee ($250) covers the age appropriate spay / neutering, heart worm testing, rabies, distemper combo, microchipping and any other necessary medical that a dog may need. Please consider a rescue that comes to you with all of the routine medical (and then some) already done.
