Dog's Name: Freddy
Estimated Breed: JRT/CHI mix
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+). His treatment is fully complete and he's good as new! NO ISSUES! Freddy is not housetrained, but some focused attention on training and he'll get there in no time. He's a very sweet boy, but he's more of a 'ladies man' and it takes time for him to be ok with boy dogs. He doesn't attack, but does try to intimidate them. He's ok with a couple of the male foster dogs, but it took some time to get there. He LOVES the ladies tho! ;)

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.
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.
