Dodger-ADOPTED!

Dodger is a sweet and loving 10 week old Lab mix pup who came to Canine Lifeline along with his two twin brothers Homer and Popfly. A rescuer who we work with brought these boys to our attention. They were born on Feb 22. Their mom (black dog pictured here) is a 40 pound Lab mix who belongs to someone who couldn’t afford to get her spayed. The father of the pups is a mystery. The rescuer told the woman that she could find a rescue to take the pups provided she had her dog spayed which she did. So good news all around—these pups will find wonderful homes and the mama dog is now spayed and will not add any more pups to an already overcrowded world of dogs. Dodger and his brothers are typical loving, sweet, active, and roly-poly pups. They love to wrestle with each other so Dodger would probably enjoy having a canine buddy in his new home. He has not yet started on housetraining but now that spring weather is here to stay (hopefully!), he can start that in his new home. Dodger will need to have a family who has plenty of time to spend with him. As a young pup, he will need to go outside at least every two hours during the day as he works on housetraining. Dodger weighed 12.7 pounds when he was neutered on 4-25-19 and we expect he’ll be about 60 pounds once full-grown. His adoption fee is $350. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick 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.
