Dog's Name: Hendrix (HEN0523SCOMD)Estimated Breed: Patterdale Terrier mixApproximate Age: 4 yearsApproximate Weight: 18 lbs (small)Currently Living at: FosterAdoption Fee: $375DOG'S DESCRIPTION: Sweet little Hendrix continues to blossom in his foster home. When he first arrived he was a very scared boy who would run away and hide from anyone who tried to approach him. Now his affectionate, playful and gentle personality has emerged. He is a moderate energy dog, happy to snooze for hours at your feet or on the sofa (preferably with his head on your lap), but always eager and ready for a walk or some play time when invited. He loves to hang out and play with other dogs that he knows, and even with cats in a pinch (see the photos and videos), but he needs a proper introduction because he gets very excited when meeting a new dog. His loud barking and growling can scare other dogs (and their people) until they get to know him. He usually calms down after a few minutes and wants to play, but by that time it is too late (we're working on his social skills). He is fully housetrained, comes when he is called and walks well on a leash. He is still shy around new people but he is willing to be won over with treats and encouraging words. Other than this lingering wariness of strange humans, he is a relaxed and easy-going guy, and his fosterer says he has never shown any sign of aggression to anyone (except maybe squirrels).Hendrix is looking for someone who is willing to be patient and let him interact and bond at his own pace. He would love a home with a fenced yard where he could zoom around from time to time, but he would probably also do well in an apartment as long as he gets a few good walks a day. He would also love to have a dog companions about his own size, or regular opportunities to play with other familiar dogs (probably not a dog park, where he would continually have to meet new dogs). He is not barky, except when he gets really excited, such as when meeting a new dog or when he is in a very playful mood -- then he does some barking and "play growling" which sounds ominous but means nothing. He is just an all-around well behaved and loving little guy who can't wait to be your devoted best friend. 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, rabies (if puppy is old enough), distemper/parvo vaccinations, deworming, monthly heartworm prevention while in our care (if old enough), monthly flea/tick prevention while in our care, and transport costs. K-9 Lifesavers will also cover the cost of spay/neuter at our partner vet at 6 months of age or reimburse adopter for up to the amount of our partner vet cost should you choose to spay/neuter at your own vet. Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.
