Is this the most gorgeous boy or what!? Ronnie is a big guy with an even bigger heart! His foster family absolutely loved him. He might just be one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet! He loves to cuddle, is house trained, walks nicely on a leash, loves dogs (but prefers to be an only dog at home),and people and is eager to please.. he is the entire package! 

He is hoping someone out there has a big heart too and will give him a loving forever home. Ronnie was limping and holding up his front leg when he arrived; xrays provided the answer...a bullet in his shoulder! Ronnie still gets around well even though the bullet caused fairly extensive nerve damage and because he still uses it for balance, and because hes such a large dog, we decided it best not to amputate. Ronnie is currently on some anti-inflammatory meds for a short term, and Glucosamine long term.

He is 100% hound so you can imagine what he sounds like and he sounds off the alarm with the sighting of a squirrel! Due to that, apartment, TH, Condo life is probably not the best idea...well, at least not for your neighbors and keeping a good relationship! ;) Wont you give Ronnie the chance he deserves at a better life?

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.
