Captain Joe

Meet Captain Joe, a handsome 2 year-old Husky/Great Pyrenees mix male with perhaps a little Lab thrown into the mix. This big guy found himself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter and came to Canine Lifeline so he would be able to relax in a foster home while he searched for a permanent new home. We don’t have any history on his pre-shelter life but have found that Captain Joe can be a little particular about his dog friends. He seems to do well with females but would prefer not to share a home with another male dog. He would also likely be fine as the only dog in the home provided his family has lots of time to spend with him so he wouldn’t be alone for long workdays. Captain Joe has had excellent crate manners in his foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. Given his suspected breed mix, he will need a secure aboveground fence to keep him safe at home—no invisible fence for this boy. We’re looking for a dog-experienced owner for him as he has a little bit of an independent spirit being part Great Pyr and Husky. He is food-motivated though so working with him on obedience training should be a positive experience. Captain Joe weighs about 71 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 info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Captain Joe. 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 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.
