Rex-ADOPTED!

Calling all Puggle fans! Rex is a 1 year-old boy who, at 35 pounds, is on the larger side for a Puggle. He’s not overweight but is a bit taller and has a larger frame than most. He also has a bit longer coat suggesting there might be some Shepherd in his family tree. Rex was an owner surrender at an overcrowded county dog shelter. We don’t know why his family couldn’t keep him any longer but he was frightened and very timid at the shelter so made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he would have time to relax in a foster home which searching for a new family to love. Rex is a very quiet and well-mannered dog who seems more mature than his chronological age. He gets along great with other dogs and does like to play a little with his fellow foster dogs but is not a guy who wants to be on the go constantly. He settles down nicely in his crate for a nap once playtime is over. Rex is likely to be housetrained although we can’t make any guarantees on that. He is shy with new people initially but once he’s comfortable with someone, he’s very affectionate and soaks up all the attention he can get. His adoption fee is $250. Rex is 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 Rex. 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.
