What a sweet boy! Dash is a 9 month-old Aussie/Bernese Mountain Dog mix (or at least that’s our best guess) who’s got it all—great looks and a fabulous disposition. Hard to believe that this handsome pup was an unclaimed stray at an overcrowded county dog shelter but that was indeed his plight. From the shelter, he made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he would be able to relax in a foster home while searching for a new family. Although we don’t have any history on him, we have been very impressed with Dash since the day he arrived here with us. He has been an outstanding guest in his foster home—excellent crate manners, friendly with all people he meets, and good with other dogs too. At about 9 months-old. He’s technically still a pup but he acts much more mature than most dogs that age. Dash is friendly with other dogs but hasn’t seemed interested in roughhousing with his fellow foster dogs. He might be fine as the only dog in the home provided his family has plenty of time to spend with him. For a youngster, he walks quite well on a leash and should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. This boy is sure to make fast friends wherever he goes. Dash currently weighs about 60 pounds but we expect he may be 70-80 once full-grown. 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 info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Dash. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under the age of 7 years.
