This boy with the very sweet face is Carson, a 2 year-old Doxie/Beagle/Plott Hound mix who found himself homeless at a rural county dog shelter along with his pal Salem who might be his littermate. Carson arrived at the shelter very underweight so it seems that he may have been fending for himself for some time. Both Carson and Salem made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they would be able to relax in a foster home while they searched for permanent new homes. Carson is a very friendly guy who posed so nicely for his photos. It helped that he’s extremely food-motivated and willing to do anything for a treat! He gets along well with Salem and the other dogs in his foster home but might be fine as the only dog in the home too. He soaks up all the love and affection he can get from his human friends. Carson is doing well on crate-training in his foster home and with some patience and consistency on the part of his new family, should have the house rules mastered without too much trouble. It’s going to be a real pleasure for his new family to watch as Carson goes from the skinny shy stray to the handsome confident dog he’s sure to become. Carson weighs about 18 pounds now but is very thin and is working on gaining some needed weight in his foster home. 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.
