Casey is an active and energetic 9-10 month-old Black Lab mix neutered male who finds himself looking for a new home. He was adopted from us in the spring as a 4 month-old pup but recently returned as he has more energy and needs more training than his family was able to provide for him. Although they did go through puppy class with Casey, he is a high energy boy and was the only dog in their home. Now that he’s back with us, Casey spends his days wrestling and playing chase with his fellow foster dogs. We do want to place him in a home with another active young canine pal or two to help him blow off some steam on a daily basis. A tired dog is a good dog and much easer to train! In addition to a home with other dogs, we do want to place him in a home with a large fenced yard for him to play in. A secure aboveground fence is preferred. Casey is housetrained, crate-trained, and knows many commands including sit, shake hands, stay, wait, leave it, and lay down. He gets very excited to go for a walk so still needs to work on his leash manners. Using an EZ Walk harness as he works on that will make walks much more enjoyable. Casey did live in a home with kids (8 and 11 years of age) but was too rambunctious and mouthy for them. In his previous home, he did show some resource guarding of his food bowl so will need a new owner who knows how to modify this behavior. In his foster home, he eats in his crate and we haven’t observed this behavior. We are looking for adopters who will commit to additional obedience training with Casey. Canine Lifeline will offer a $50 rebate once a 6-8 week training course with an approved trainer is completed in his new home. Casey weighs about 55 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 Casey. 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 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.
