Meet Elijah, a sweet, 12 week old Lab/Boxer mix pup. He is playful, curious and affectionate. Like most pups his age, he is good with all people, great with other dogs and young enough to learn about cats. Because he's a baby, he'll require an adopter who is home a good part of the day to continue his training - no exceptions! His happy-go-lucky personality is sure to make him a beloved family member. He is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and preventatives and will need to be neutered at the age of 6 months.
Please note, this pup's immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age and therefore, s/he is not suited for Apartment/Condo living or Town-homes without a private fenced yard and will not be able to go to public places where s/he could possibly be exposed to the germs of unvaccinated dogs, such as PetSmart/PetCo and dog parks until s/he is 16 weeks old.
The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which helps with the cost of routine vet care. This fee DOES NOT INCLUDE spay/neuter if the pup is not already spayed/neutered. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. ***Note that puppy adoption fees most often help generate revenue that goes towards older, special needs animals that need our help. Surgeries, heartworm treatment, boarding costs....all things that often result in adoptable dogs and cats being left behind to be euthanized. So adopting a puppy saves not just one life, but many!
***Please note that our first step in approving adoption applicants is to complete a vet check. Vetting of current and past pets is very important to us, thus we will be speaking withâ the vet(s) listed on your application to ensureâ that your âcurrent and previous âpet(s) are kept up to date on vaccinesâ (includingâ rabiesâ)â, spayed or neutered, âmaintained on appropriate monthly preventatives and âexamined annually by your vet.***
