Dog's Name: Freddie
Estimated Breed : Mountain Cur Mix
Approximate Age: 1.5 yr.
Approximate Weight: approx. 55 lbs
Currently Living at: Foster
Adoption Fee: $325
This amazing boy should be known as Superdog, the three-legged-wonder! Determined not to let anything like a missing front leg slow him down, Freddie lives life to the fullest and loves nothing more than playing with other energetic dogs and attention from his humans. He would love a family to show him lots of love and work with him on accepting visitors...not everyone is 'stranger danger!'. Freddie will do best in an adult only home, or teenage children would be fine as well - no children younger than 13. He does great with another energetic dog to romp around with and/or someone home most of the time. He's doing better in foster care and getting used to the routine but loves his humans so much he wants to be around getting attention all the time. He loves to snuggle in the big bed, but is getting used to a crate. He is housetrained. He is a sweet boy that just needs someone to give him attention.
Your new pet may 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.
