Shiloh-ADOPTED!

Shiloh is a one-of-a-kind girl. This 3 year-old beauty is an unusual mix of Great Dane and something much smaller, reportedly Basset Hound. She was surrendered to an overcrowded county dog shelter by her owner who could no longer keep her. Shiloh was very frightened at the shelter but was a staff favorite so they searched for a rescue for her so she would be able to relax and take her time finding a new home. She was very shy when she first arrived at Canine Lifeline but has since really come out of her shell in her foster home. Her pics were taken on the day she arrived so she looks a little sad and confused. We noticed that Shiloh has a funny gait and sometimes has difficult getting up from her bed. X-rays revealed that Shiloh has congenital hip dysplasia as well as some abnormalities in her spine. These developmental abnormalities are likely the result of her unusual breed mix. The vet feels that she is not a candidate to have her hips surgically repaired. Shiloh gets along very well in her foster home and can run and play with other dogs. She will likely develop arthritis at an earlier age than most dogs though and may need to be on anti-inflammatory drugs at a younger age. She will also need to be kept at an ideal weight. Shiloh is very shy meeting new people but once she decides you’re a friend, you’ve got a pal for life. She would do best in a quiet, mature home and any canine companions in her new home should be on the calm and gentle side. Shiloh is crate-trained and likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. She weighs about 40 pounds and her adoption fee is $200. Shiloh is spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Shiloh. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there. SHILOH IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION LOCALLY (NORTHEAST OH).
