Darla

If you love Boxers, you’re going to love Darla, a lovely 3 year-old girl with an impressive underbite. She was turned into an overcrowded county dog shelter by her owners who could no longer keep her. Although the owners didn’t provide any information about this, the shelter felt that she had an old injury to her hips so asked us for help with her. Darla made the trip to Canine Lifeline and had x-rays upon arrival. It was found that she has an old pelvic fracture which had long since healed on its own. Her hips are very stiff and, although it’s not very noticeable initially, she does walk with a bit of a stiff gait. It doesn’t slow her down much though as Darla loves to go for walks and play with her friends. She gets along with the other dogs in her foster home as long as they’re not too rowdy. Darla was adopted briefly but returned to us because she did not want to share her new home or her people with another dog so she will need to be the only dog in her new home. She’s very kind and affectionate with her human friends and always has a big smile and full body wag for them. Darla has excellent crate manners and is likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. She’s an expert ball player and will bring the ball back and drop it right at your feet for you to throw it again. Darla has gained weight since she’s been with us and is now at her ideal weight of about 49 pounds. Her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Darla. 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.
