Sandy is a very sweet and friendly Chihuahua mix female who came into an overcrowded rural county dog shelter with infections in both eyes. The shelter she came from thought she was about 5 years-old but our vet puts her closer to 2. She was diagnosed with chronic dry eye so came to Canine Lifeline so she would get the medication that she needs. Sandy was on Optimmune for about 6 weeks but that didn’t solve her eye issues. She’s now on Tacrolimus 2-3 times daily to see if that can restore tear production. If that doesn’t work, she will need to be given lubricating eye drops about 4 times per day to keep her eyes comfortable. Sandy is a real trooper about taking her eye drops and never complains. She loves being around people and would enjoy being the only dog in your life so she could get all the attention she likely never had in her life. She would love to have a lap to call her very own. Sandy has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. She weighs about 9 pounds and her adoption fee is $125 since she will need ongoing treatment for her eyes. 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 info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Sandy. 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 Sandy and to submit an online application.

About Canine Lifeline

About Our Rescue Group...

Canine Lifeline is an all volunteer 501(c)3 organization with a mission to save adoptable dogs from being euthanized at shelters due to overcrowding or treatable medical conditions such as heartworm. All of our dogs are in foster homes throughout northeast Ohio.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Canine Lifeline takes adoptable dogs to Petco in Macedonia most Sunday's. We also participate in many adoption events throughout the summer months. Please check our website at www.caninelifeline.org for the most current adoption event listing.

Our Adoption Process...

All Canine Lifeline dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations including a one-year rabies, and are on monthly heartworm preventative. In the warmer months of the year, our dogs are also on a flea and tick preventative. The adoption fee for dogs 7 months up to 7 years of age is $200. Senior dogs may be adopted for a reduced fee of $125. Puppies 6 months and under are $275. Since all of our dogs come from shelters and have been stray or abandoned at least once in their lives, we want to make sure that their next home is for keeps. That’s why each adoption comes with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a perfect match before the adoption is finalized.
