This sweet girl is Babe, a 1 year-old Cattledog mix female who is about as loving and affectionate as they come. She was an owner surrender at an overcrowded county shelter before Christmas so made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could enjoy life in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. We don’t know what circumstances led to Babe losing her home but she arrived at the shelter overweight which suggests that she belonged to someone who didn’t provide her with the exercise she needs and fed her way too much. It’s always sad to see an overweight dog but an overweight Cattledog is especially bad as they are an active, energetic breed who loves to stay busy. Babe is now working on shedding a few pounds in her foster home and is looking for an active family who will take her on lots of walks and other activities as well as providing her with a healthy diet for life. Babe is a really nice dog who loves people and walks nicely on a leash. She does well with the other dogs in her foster home but doesn’t really enjoy having rowdy puppies invade her space. Babe would likely do fine as the only dog in the home provided her family has plenty of time to spend with her. She has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Babe can’t wait to start living her best life in her new home. Babe weighs about 35 pounds currently but need to lose about 5 pounds to be at 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. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with 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 Babe.
