Meet Kramer, a sweet but very shy 10 month-old Border Collie/Spaniel mix male who came into a county dog shelter as a stray. He was not claimed and was very frightened and shut down there so he made the trip to Canine Lifeline to be able to relax in a foster home while searching for his permanent new home. Your heart really goes out to this sweet pup. He was so scared of everything the day he arrived here keeping his tail tucked low between his legs. What an amazing transformation though after a few days in a foster home. Kramer is beginning to realize now that life is good. He responds very well to a soft voice and kind hand and wags his tail now when he sees his foster mom. Kramer is even beginning to feel more comfortable on a leash. With each passing day, he’s getting a little more confident and showing his true gentle and kind disposition. Kramer enjoys snoozing in his crate and waits patiently for his turn to go outside. He should pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. Kramer gets along well with other dogs so having a confident canine buddy in his new home should really help him adjust to a new environment. Given his initial shyness, Kramer would definitely benefit from having a yard with a secure aboveground fence. This wonderful dog is going to be a great source of joy for his new person or family. It’s so rewarding to see such a shy dog blossom with confidence once he knows he’s loved and in a safe place and he will be forever devoted to his new family for giving him that chance. Kramer weighs about 25 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, 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.
