Castle is a handsome but camera shy 2 year-old Mountain Cur mix male with a bobtail. He found himself homeless at an overcrowded county dog shelter and came to Canine Lifeline so he could relax in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. Castle has been a very quiet and well-mannered boy since he’s been with us. He can be nervous and unsure of himself in new situations so will need a little time to adjust to his new surroundings once adopted. Castle gets along well with other dogs so might benefit from having a calm canine buddy in his new home who can show him the ropes and boost his confidence. He has done well with crate-training in his foster home and should continue that in his new home. The crate will give him some added security as he gains confidence in his new home. Castle doesn’t seem to have had much experience on a leash when he came to us but he’s a quick learner and is sure to be walking like a pro in no time with some daily practice in his new home. Castle was adopted from us but returned after several months because he became increasingly aggressive with the cat in his adoptive home so he must go to a kitty-free home. There was also another dog in his home and he got along well with her although he was occasionally protective of his toys around her. Castle weighs about 44 pounds and his adoption fee is $325. 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.
