Meet Simon, a very polite 1.5 year-old boy who looks like he might be a long-legged mix of Shih Tzu and Poodle. He was surrendered to an overcrowded rural county dog shelter by his owner who could no longer care for him. We have no history on his previous life or knowledge of his true breed mix. Although the shelter listed him as a Terrier mix, Simon has a very soft coat which isn’t at all wiry. He’s been a real gentleman in his foster home—great with other dogs, excellent in his crate, and likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Simon is scheduled for a trip to the groomer on Friday March 30 so will soon be even cuter if that’s even possible! Simon weighs about 14 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 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 Simon. 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.
