Lab lovers, meet Artie! This handsome and super-friendly 1 year-old Lab mix was found as a stray and made the trip to Canine Lifeline from an overcrowded county dog shelter once his stray hold was up. Hard to believe that he wasn’t claimed at the shelter as this boy is a great dog! He has truly never a stranger and makes fast friends with both other canines as well as people. Artie loves toys of all kinds and would likely make a great fetcher with a little practice. He walks pretty well on a leash for a young dog and will only improve with some daily practice in his new home. Artie has done well with crate-training in his foster home and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He will eagerly sit for a treat and may know more commands that we haven’t discovered yet. Artie loved having his pictures taken and was a real pro in front of the camera. If you’ve got the time and energy for an active young dog, Artie would love to meet you! Artie weighs about 60 pounds and his adoption fee is $350. He’s neutered, 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 if you’re interested in Artie. 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. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
