Spatz is a very handsome 7-year-old Border Collie/Irish Setter mix that was previously adopted from us in 2012. He was recently returned due to unexpected family circumstances. The family was heartbroken to give him up. The family tells us he completed basic and intermediate obedience class and knows sit, down, come, stay, wait and shake. He loves car rides and toys – especially rope toys and nylabones. He’s house trained and gets along well with other dogs. He does suffer from separation anxiety, and the family took him to doggie daycare regularly so he wouldn’t have to be home alone. Given how much fun he has at doggie daycare, we are looking to place him in a home that has another dog. This may help alleviate the separation anxiety.

The pictures above are from his previous time with us in 2012. We will get new pictures posted soon.  Spatz currently weighs about 65 pounds and his adoption fee is $125. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Spatz.

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 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junk mail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
