Buster Leroy's Info...
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Male||ID#:||11021201|
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Buster Leroy came to us because his previous owner surrendered him to the local dog shelter when they got a new young dog and didn't want him any more. Since we took him in, we discovered that he has Cushing's disease which is an over active Thyroid gland. He requires a daily pill to control this problem and other than that he's just fine. He weighs 14..5 pounds and is 9 years old which is only middle age for this breed of dog.
The small, foxlike Schipperke is known for its mischievous expression and distinctive black coat, which stands off from the body and is harsh to the touch. This enthusiastic, joyful, and sometimes willful dog has a thickset and cobby body, and lacks a tail. Although historically a watchdog and vermin hunter, today this ageless breed enjoys competing in conformation, agility and obedience, often well into its teens.
A Look Back
The Schipperke originated in the Flemish regions of Belgium, bred down in size from a black sheepdog called the Leauvenaar. The breed worked as a companion of tradesmen as well as a watchdog and ratter on the river barges, which is where they got the name "Schipperke" since the Flemish word "schip" means boat. Another common nickname for the Schipperke is "Little Captain."
Rescue Group Info...
I am retired and want to help save the lives of dogs and help them find loving homes.
All of our dogs are kept in foster homes. Please contact the director or foster parent to make arrangements to meet the dog.
• First you complete an application to adopt.
• Second you come to see the dog and decide whether or not you want to try him or her out. If you do, you take the dog home for a 3-day trial.
• During this trial period, we check your references.
• Then we call you after the 3-day trial to see if the dog has worked out and you are ready to complete the adoption.
• If the dog works out and you want to complete the adoption, we schedule a home visit, bring the contract and finalize the adoption.
• IF THE DOG DOES NOT WORK OUT, YOU JUST RETURN HIM OR HER.
