Avery is a super-sweet 2 year-old all-American mutt who looks like he might have some Aussie or Sheltie in the mix. This boy came into a rural county dog shelter as a stray so we have no history on his previous life but based on his appearance when he arrived at the shelter, he seems to have been neglected for much of his life. Avery arrived at the shelter with a matted coat in very poor condition. Patches of hairloss on his back were confirmed to be due to a combination of demodectic mange and flea allergy dermatitis. Now that Avery is being treated for both conditions, he is feeling so much better and his skin/coat are starting to look better too. We can only imagine how stunning he’s going to look once he’s completely mended! Avery is a very friendly dog both with people and other dogs. He does very well in his crate—no accidents—so should be able to pick up the housetraining routine quickly in his new home even though it’s likely he lived outside prior to coming to Canine Lifeline. Avery is the type of dog whose transformation from street dog to a pampered pup is so wonderful to see. He’s going to be so devoted to the person or family who gives him the fabulous life he deserves. Avery weighs about 25 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea 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 Avery. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 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.
