Delta-ADOPTED!

Looking for an active young dog who loves to have fun? That’s our Delta, a 1 year-old Lab/Mountain Cur mix spayed female with a bobtail who loves everyone and everything. She was adopted from a shelter but recently returned as she wasn’t a good match for her adopters. We don’t have any specifics on why her home didn’t work out but we suspect that she might have been a little too much dog for them. From the overcrowded shelter, Delta made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could enjoy life in a foster home while searching for a new permanent home. Delta has many wonderful qualities but is quite an energetic girl so needs a family who can provide her with the exercise and training that she needs. She loves other dogs so we do want to place her in a home with another active canine pal or two to help her blow off some steam. A nice big yard with an aboveground fence would also be ideal and would give her lots of room to play. Delta does settle down nicely after playtime is over and is happy to nap in her crate. She has had excellent crate manners in her foster home and is likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Delta will eagerly sit for a treat so has a little start on obedience training. She will need to continue that in her new home and also work on her leash manners. With daily practice, she’ll soon be walking like a pro. This girl is going to make a fabulous companion for the person or family who has the time and energy to devote to an active young dog. Delta weighs about 55 pounds and 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 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 Delta. 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.
