Meet Blake, a handsome 1.5 year-old boy with a beautiful brindle coat who looks like a mix of Plott Hound and Mountain Cur although his breed mix is really anyone’s guess. Blake found himself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter. He wasn’t having any luck getting adopted in that area and the shelter was filling up so Blake was at risk of euthanasia. From there, he made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could relax in a foster home while taking his time finding the perfect new home. Blake is a really sweet guy who can be a little shy in new situations. He gets along well with other dogs but according to the shelter who sent him to us, he is not good with cats. Since coming to us, he hasn’t show any aggression to the resident kitties at the vet clinic but he may have been distracted there and not focusing on them. Given the shelter’s recommendation, we will be looking for a home for Blake without kitties. Blake has done well with crate-training in his foster home and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He walks well on a leash and will make a great walking or hiking buddy for someone who wants a medium-sized dog. Blake weighs about 30 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 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 Blake. 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 the age of 7 years. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
