Scheib is a super confident, friendly senior who loves his people and other dogs. This easy going fellow would love to find a caring forever home where he can be part of the pack. He is calm, low energy and a perfect size for most any household. Scheib can be very vocal when crated and may need a little house training while he is adapting to a new situation, but his extremely sweet personality will win you over. He’s got lots of love to give and can’t wait to share it with you!
Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers cannot guarantee that our dogs won't have accidents in their new home, even if they are fully house broken in their current foster home as they have to adjust to new environment, routine, and schedule. 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, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention (while in our care), monthly flea/tick prevention, and our transport costs and spay and neuter. As part of the adoption agreement, adopters agree to get the pup spayed/neutered at our partner vet by 6 months of age.
Foster Program:    Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.  For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit or email our Foster Coordinator at
