Dasher is one of a litter of nine 1.5 year-old Chihuahua/Pekingese mixes who were turned into an overcrowded county dog shelter by their owner. They were very frightened at the shelter and not likely to get adopted easily there so six of them made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they could relax in a foster home while they searched for permanent new homes (the other 3 went to another rescue). These dogs seem to have lived a sheltered life before coming into the shelter so their world was totally turned upside down with all the change. Dasher is the smallest of the bunch but has the biggest personality. He’s very affectionate with his foster mom and loves to give kisses. We do want to place him in a home with another dog or two as he has always lived with dogs and would be lost as an only dog. He will need a kind and patient family who will give him the time he needs to feel comfortable in his new surroundings. He is working on crate-training and housetraining in his foster home and will need to continue both in his new home. Dasher weighs about 13 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 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 Dasher. 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 48 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.
