Dorian is a handsome 2 year-old Black Lab mix who’s short, stocky, and a solid 57 pounds. He was found as a stray and taken to an overcrowded county dog shelter. When he wasn’t claimed there, he made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could take his time finding the perfect new home. Dorian seems to enjoy meeting new people and has done well with everyone he’s met since coming to us. He has also been fine with female dogs but has been a little growly with other males. That is likely to tone down now that he’s neutered. Overall, he’s a gentle boy who walks quite nicely on a leash, has excellent crate manners, and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. Dorian is happy to have a tennis ball to play with so might be a good fetcher with a little more practice. He was very well-mannered when his photos were taken and was interested in the squeaky toys we used to get his attention. Dorian is very food-motivated and eager to please so it should be a pleasure to work with him on obedience training. His adoption fee is $350. 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.
