Meet Brooks, a very gentle 2 year-old Lab/Shep/Hound mix with a heart of gold. Unfortunately, he tested positive for heartworms at an overcrowded rural county shelter which usually means euthanasia and no chance for a future. Lucky for him, the shelter volunteers realized what a wonderful dog he was and reached out to us for help with him. Brooks made the trip to Canine Lifeline to receive the lifesaving treatment that he needs. His treatment began the week of June 9 and he did great so is now neutered and ready to find a terrific new home. We’ve been so impressed with this sweet dog. He’s kind and gentle with all dogs he’s met including those much smaller than he is. He also loves meeting people but seems a little surprised when people are kind to him. Brooks likes to think of himself as a lap dog and will snuggle and give you as many kisses as you want. It’s all good now Brooks and we can’t wait to see you find your own family very soon. He has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too. He is a little strong on the leash but is so eager to please, that with a little more practice and training, he’ll be an outstanding walking buddy. Brooks weighs about 75 pounds and his adoption fee is $200. He’s neutered, current on monthly heartworm 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 email@example.com if you’re interested in Brooks. An application must be submitted and approved before we schedule meets with our dogs. We try to respond to inquiries the same day they’re received so if you haven’t heard from us within 24 hours, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
Brooks’ life was saved by our ‘Have a Heart’ fund. Thanks to all of our donors who contributed to save the lives of shelter dogs with heartworm disease!
