This bright-eyed, alert, and very photogenic girl is Gracie, a 3 year-old Boxer mix who came into a county dog shelter as a stray. She spent a few months at the shelter but no one chose her for adoption so she made the trip to Canine Lifeline for a change of scenery. Gracie was understandably very energetic and wound-up when she first arrived after having spent some time in the shelter but once she had a chance to blow off some steam, she has settled down and is a really nice girl. Gracie loves meeting new people but can be particular about her dog friends so would likely do best as the only dog in the home. She likes to jump on other dogs and most dogs don’t appreciate that so get irritated with her quickly. We were pleasantly surprised to find that Gracie walks quite well on a leash and will eagerly sit for a treat. She’s a definite foodie and will do anything if a yummy treat reward is in the offing. Gracie has done well in her crate in her foster home so ought to be able to pick up the house rules quickly in her new home. She loves toys of all kinds and would enjoy having a nice big backyard with a secure aboveground fence so she can run and play to her heart’s content. Gracie weighs about 45 pounds and her adoption fee is $350. 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 if you’re interested in Gracie. 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 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
