Cuervo is a bright-eyed and alert little 9 month-old Aussie mix who just could not be any cuter with his little bobtail. He’s got loads of personality to go with his good looks too so Cuervo really has it all. He’s still very much of a puppy though who’s going to need some work on housetraining. He’s certainly getting the hang of it and is working on crate-training too so will need to continue both in his new home. Because of that, he’s going to need someone who is able to let him outside every 4 hours or so during the day so he can perfect his house manners. He was adopted from a shelter briefly but returned most likely because someone wasn’t ready to deal with a puppy. From the shelter, Cuervo moved to Canine Lifeline so he could enjoy life in a foster home while he searched for his permanent home. Cuervo loves playing with other dogs so would really have fun in a home where he has a canine buddy to pal around with. He also loves squeaky toys and has no problem keeping himself entertained chasing a squeaky around.  Cuervo met the resident kitties at the vet clinic and thought it might be fun to play with them too although they were not so enthused. We certainly saw no aggression on his part towards cats so he might be able to live in a home with kitties. Cuervo is a smart pup who would love to enroll in an obedience class with his new family. With some time and effort, this little guy is going to make an outstanding companion who might even enjoy learning agility at some point. Cuervo weighs about 25 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 Cuervo. 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.
