Dog's Name: Trixie
Estimated Breed : Standard Doxie
Approximate Age: 1 yr
Approximate Weight: 25 lbs
Currently Living at: Foster
Adoption Fee: $375 (includes heartworm treatment)
Trixie is a sweet and happy girl. She does ok with other dogs, but depending on the dog can be somewhat leary of them. She is more nervous around larger dogs than smaller dogs. She is confident and friendly with people, good with kids, doubt cats would be ok but not cat tested. She does well going potty outside if you are diligent with the routine. She is not a barker and does well in her crate. Trixie would benefit from a nice long walk every day and enjoy a lap to watch TV with her humans and relax. Since Trixie didn't receive HW preventative, she has tested HW Positive. K9 Lifesavers covers the cost of treatment, but a relaxing loving home would be very beneficial for this girl to go thru treatment! Please send an application to DenaE@K-9lifesavers.org if you are willing to give this wonderful gal a loving furever home.
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.
