Clyde

Clyde is a very happy and outgoing 1 year-old Cattle Dog mix male with lots of spots who always has a smile on his face in spite of what he’s been through recently. He lived in an apartment where his owner was trying to keep him without permission. When the landlord found out he was there, Clyde had to go and his owner gave him to someone who tied him up outside. That lasted only a few days until a couple of stray unneutered male dogs came by and attacked Clyde. Sweet, peace-loving Clyde definitely bore the brunt of that encounter as he ended up with many bite wounds on his face and neck. He then ended up at the local shelter and went into a foster home from there while waiting to make the trip to Canine Lifeline to find himself a great new home. Clyde’s wounds have now healed and he’s ready to make a fresh start in his new home and put the past behind him. As noted, Clyde has a great attitude and, in spite of having been attacked by other dogs, is very dog friendly. He has done well with all dogs he’s met since coming to us but if there’s a canine buddy in his new home, he would prefer it be a spayed female. Clyde has done well with crate training in his foster home and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He will need a little more work on his leash manners but Clyde is very eager to please so should be able to pick up new routines quickly. Clyde weighs about 50 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. Clyde came to us with a horrible infection in one of his ears which destroyed the ear drum. The infection has been treated but his new family will need to keep an eye on that ear to make sure it stays clean. 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.
