Petunia is a beautiful 4 year-old scruffy lady who came into a shelter as a stray with a very matted coat. The shelter took her to a groomer to get her some relief so the photos you see are after Petunia was shaved. Petunia does have a long coat and may be a mix of Schnauzer or Bearded Collie. She also has a purple tongue which is reminiscent of Chow. When she wasn’t claimed at the shelter, Petunia made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could take her time finding the perfect new home. This girl has been very shy and reserved in the short time she’s been with us but seems to be relaxing a little bit each day. Petunia seems to do fine with other dogs but may prefer her canine companions on the calm, mellow side. She does respond to a kind word and gentle hand from her human friends and is sure to blossom once she gets the chance to relax in her true forever home. Petunia keeps her crate spotless and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. She walks nicely on a leash and takes care of business quickly when out for a walk. Petunia would love a mature family and a home in a quiet neighborhood. A busy urban or high-density suburban setting would likely be overwhelming for her. We can’t wait to see her relax and enjoy life in her new home! Petunia weighs about 42 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.
