Dog's Name: Freddy

Approximate Age: ~1 yr
Approximate Weight: 19 lbs
Currently Living at: Foster
Adoption Fee: $375
This cutie was adopted from a shelter and they lady decided she didn't want him anymore so she let him loose. He was brought in to a different shelter than he was adopted from but since he was micro-chipped they called the lady to set up a time to pick him up. She didn't show so they called to reschedule and she told them she decided she didn't want him. This little guy is a cutie! But since his previous owners didn't take care of him he's been diagnosed Heartworm Positive (HW+). K-9Lifesavers will cover the cost of treatment, but it sure would be nice if this little dude could spend his recovery time in a loving home with his furever family. She great with people, good with dogs, not sure about cats. He's not housetrained, but some focused attention on training and he'll get there in no time.

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.
