This adorable little gentleman is O’Malley, a 1.5 year-old Doxie/Cocker mix male who came into an overcrowded county dog shelter as a stray so we have no history on his previous life. Since his photos were taken, O’Malley has visited the groomer and all of that long hair that looks like it was bleached by the sun has been removed so his coat is all even now. He was excellent for his grooming and has been very well-mannered in his foster home as well. O’Malley gets along well with other dogs but hasn’t been one to roughhouse with his fellow foster dogs. At this point, he prefers to sit on the sidelines and watch the more rowdy members of the group engage in games of chase and wrestling matches. O’Malley has excellent crate manners so may be housetrained although we can’t guarantee it. We expect he’ll be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. He would be the perfect companion for someone who wants a more low-key dog but one who can also go on long walks and hikes. O’Malley weighs about 20 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 info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in O’Malley. 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.
