Abby-ADOPTED!

It’s not every day that you see a dog who looks like a mini-Husky with an underbite but that’s our Abby! This active 1-2 year-old girl found herself homeless at a rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could take her time finding the person or family who will appreciate all of her fine qualities. While we don’t have any history on her, we have found Abby to be a very spunky dog who is very friendly with people and loves playing with other dogs. She can be a rough player though so, if there’s a canine buddy in her new home, it would have to be someone who can match her style of play. Abby is most definitely not a couch potato but she does settle down nicely in her crate for a nap after playtime is over. She has had excellent crate manners in her foster home and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. Abby does know the sit command and is always ready to do so for a yummy treat. While she loves to go for walks, Abby does need some work on her leash manners. She loves to pull so would do well with an Easy Walk as she works on her leash skills. With some additional training and lots of exercise, Abby is going to make an outstanding companion for one lucky person or family. Abby weighs about 25 pounds currently but is thin and working on gaining a few more pounds to reach her ideal weight. Her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Abby. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age.
