Meet Buckeye, a handsome 4 year-old Basset Hound/Dalmatian mix (or at least that’s our best guess) who was adopted from us about three years ago and returned to us last summer because his family could no longer keep him. Buckeye is a very loyal and devoted dog who is looking for a quiet home with adults only where he can relax and enjoy life. He became overly protective of his family in his previous home and they were not equipped to work with him on that issue. Buckeye can be selective with his dog friends, so would be best suited as an only dog.He has excellent crate manners and was housetrained in his previous home so should pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. Buckeye knows a number of commands and is eager to sit and shake hands for a treat. Buckeye loves to go for a walk but does best on an EZ Walk harness as he likes charging ahead to explore. The harness easily keeps him under control and makes walks much more enjoyable. Buckeye lived with cats previously but never lost interest in chasing them so would do best in a kitty-free home. Buckeye weighs about 48 pounds and his adoption fee is $200. 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 Buckeye. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so won’t place any of our dogs 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.
