Ladybug is a very sweet and affectionate 8 month-old German Shepherd mix female who just could not be any nicer. This pup was found as a stray in a rural area and taken to the local shelter. When she wasn’t claimed, she made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she would have more time to find herself a great new home. It seems that poor Ladybug didn’t have a great start in life as she was found in very poor condition—underweight with a very dry and brittle coat. Now that she’s receiving lots of good food and TLC in her foster home, Ladybug is blossoming into an even more beautiful dog than she already is. Ladybug loves playing with other dogs so would enjoy having a playful canine pal or two in her new home. Trips to the dog park or doggie daycare would also suit her just fine. Ladybug keeps her crate spotless so should pick up the housetraining rules quickly in her new home. She will need work on the leash but she’s very eager to please and should be a quick study in her obedience lessons. Ladybug weighs about 50 pounds currently but is likely to be 60-70 pounds once she’s full-grown. Her adoption fee is $250. 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 Ladybug. 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.
