Eliza is a beautiful owner surrendered hound mix who is on the hunt for her forever home. She is an independent-minded dog, happy to be out in the yard or in the house on her own, chewing sticks or bones. She also loves to play. She enjoys walks with lots and lots of time for sniffing and she likes the occasional cuddle and belly rub. She does not like dogs coming up to her while on leash, and she needs to be an only dog in the household. She is low energy, housetrained, and crate-trained and happily naps in her crate during the day and sleeps in the crate all night. She has lived in a house with 3 children aged 4-11, so she is used to noisy households but enjoys taking breaks in her crate so she doesnt get too overwhelmed. Eliza has been reported to play roughly with some dogs at doggy day care and injured a dog when in a boarding situation, so she will need support to identify and maintain safe situations for her with other dogs. Eliza also does not recall when off leash and needs to be in a house with a secure, fenced in yard or in an apartment setting where she can get on leash walks. Will you consider opening your heart and home to Eliza?

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 (at partner vet if not fixed before adoption), 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.

This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own.
