Kirby is a charming 3 year old Terrier mix whose owner could no longer care for him.  His owner did provide him with great care, including training through AKC Good Canine Citizenship. He came to Canine Lifeline so that level of care could be continued in his foster home while he searches for a permanent new home.  Kirby has proven to be an exemplary canine citizen. He is obedient, responding to several commands, affectionate, housetrained, and compatible with his foster family’s other dogs, though he was happy as an only dog in his previous home.  Active, playful, and good on a leash, Kirby readily settles and loves some quality lap time. His owner tells us that he is not aggressive with cats, but as a terrier, will engage in chase if they run.  Kirby weighs 14.5 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 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 Kirby. 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.
