Meet Buddy, a handsome 3 year-old Boxer who was an owner surrender at an overcrowded county dog shelter. We don’t know why his family could no longer keep him but he has been the perfect gentleman in his foster home. He came into the shelter in excellent condition so he certainly appears to have been well cared for. Buddy has been very quiet and well-mannered since he’s been with us. He has gotten along well with dogs of all sizes in his foster home but has yet to want to play with them so he might be fine as the only dog in the home. He has excellent crate manners and is likely to be housetrained too as he pees immediately when taken outside on a leash. Buddy will sit nicely for a treat and likely knows more commands that we haven’t discovered yet. This boy is the type of dog who is likely to walk into his new house and make himself right at home. Buddy weighs about 64 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 info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Buddy. 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 48 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.
