Seth is a loving 3-year old male Shepherd/Catahoula mix although he may have other breeds in his family tree.  He has mismatched ears and a big happy face when anyone speaks kindly to him. Seth came to Canine Lifeline from an overcrowded rural county dog shelter so he could be treated for heartworm disease.  He has completed that treatment and is doing very well.  He does not seem sight-impaired but his right eye has never developed properly so the veterinarian has recommended that the eye be surgically removed.  His surgery is scheduled for mid-November. For a 70-pound dog, Seth walks well on leash and even when he gets excited about a squirrel or other small animal, he pulls somewhat but is not unmanageable. In his foster home, there are many squirrels and chipmunks but he hasn’t tried to catch or harm them. It seems that he is mostly just excited to see them.  He has also gotten along well with the other two dogs in his foster home although the family’s 12-pound chihuahua is annoyed with him due to Seth’s size.

Seth loves being with his people and he welcomes all affection. He is particularly fond of belly rubs and he will often roll over on his back – just in case someone wants to rub that belly. If anyone strokes the side of his face or gives him a pat on the head, he is truly grateful.

He knows the “sit” command very well and usually knows “down” or “lie down” as well. He has been bathed a few times in his foster home and is very calm. He especially enjoys a soapy massage during bath time. He has done well with housetraining and has not chewed on anything except an elk antler.

Seth is a sweet, loving boy who still needs a little training but he is very eager to please his people. He also loves treats, so he is responsive to training efforts. He would be so grateful to have a loving family of his own.

Seth weighs about 70 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm 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. Please email if you’re interested in Seth.
