Skyler is a shy but sweet 1 year-old Cattle Dog mix girl who’s looking for a new place to call home. She ended up at an overcrowded county dog shelter and was absolutely petrified there. We don’t know if she was an owner surrender or came in as a stray but as soon as she was available, a shelter volunteer took her home to foster for a few weeks. It took Skyler a little time to warm up but she became much more animated and comfortable once out of the shelter. When she was ready to travel, Skyler made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could take her time finding the ideal new home. Skyler was very shy and timid when she first came to us and is likely going to be nervous at first when she gets adopted and moves into her new home. She will need a kind and patient person or family who can let her adjust to her new surroundings in her time frame. Skyler is very comfortable around other dogs so we do want to place her in a home where she’ll have a confident canine buddy to show her the ropes along with a yard that has a secure aboveground fence to keep her safely at home since she’s likely to be very skittish at first. Urban or high-density suburban living would likely be very frightening for Skyler so she is looking for a home in a quiet, more rural area where she can truly relax and enjoy her life. She is very sweet and loving with her foster mom now so it’s just going to take some time for her to realize she’s found her forever family. Skyler has done well with crate-training in her foster home and will need to continue that in her adoptive home as she works on her house manners. She would do best in a home where her people are around much of the time so she wouldn’t be left alone for long workdays. Skyler has been working on her leash skills and getting more confident with that every day. Skyler weighs about 30 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.
