We just can’t say enough good things about Beau! This very handsome 1 year-old Lab mix male (with a bobtail!) is as kind and loving a dog as you’re likely to find. We’re all scratching our heads as to why this boy was homeless at an overcrowded county dog shelter but glad to be able to find him a great new home. Beau knows sit and shake hands and likely some other commands that we haven’t discovered yet. He has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Beau loves riding in the car (although he is a big boy so will need some room!) and walks quite well on a leash. He does like to jump on people for hugs but does so very gently so it’s been charming rather than annoying. He can definitely learn though to keep all four paws on the ground when it comes to his interactions with people. Beau gets along well with other dogs so would probably enjoy having a canine pal and a fenced yard to romp around in. He also might be fine as the only dog in the home provided his family has lots of time to spend with him. Beau was adopted from us several months ago but recently returned because his owners developed some health problems that no longer allowed them to care for Beau. Beau weighs about 70 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. 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 Beau. 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.
