This poor girl was owner surrendered along with her sister, Maize. They had lived inside their whole lives. How sad for these poor dogs to suddenly be abandoned. They did nothing to deserve this. They do fine with older dogs and are good with people. Dottie would love to find a home with her sister Maize (but not necessary) !! Dottie is a bit more shy than Maizy and follows Maizy's lead. Their prior owner didn't keep these girls on heartworm (HW) preventative and now have been diagnosed HW positive. K-9 Lifesavers will cover the cost of treatment, but these girls will do much better going thru treatment in a 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.
