This lovely girl is BeeBee a 2 year-old Retriever mix girl who looks a little bit like a mini-Newfoundland. After she was abandoned at a boarding kennel, she was taken to the local shelter where it was discovered that she was heartworm positive. The shelter reached out to us for help with her so BeeBee made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could get the lifesaving treatment that she needed. They raved about what a nice dog she is and they were spot-on. BeeBee has an outstanding temperament both with people and other dogs. It seems that she’s never met a stranger and has been friendly with everyone that she’s met. BeeBee is also crate-trained and did very well with the cage rest that comes with recuperation from heartworm treatment. She walks very nicely on a leash and is going to enjoy exploring with her new family now that she’s ready for her very own home. BeeBee does have a long thick coat which will need regular grooming to keep her looking and feeling her best. Although we can’t guarantee that she’s housetrained, she’s likely to pick up the house rules quickly in her new home s she seems to be very smart and eager to please. BeeBee weighs about 44 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, current on monthly heartworm 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 if you’re interested in BeeBee. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs.
