Susie

Meet Susie, a pint-sized dynamo who’s small but mighty. This little lady is about 2-3 years-old and looks like she might be a mix of Doxie and some type of Terrier—Rat Terrier, Jack Russell, ??? Your guess is as good as ours. She was surrendered by her owner who didn’t have time for her. She lived with children in her previous home and apparently did well with them. We were told that she would climb up the ladder and go down the slide with the kids. She’s definitely an athlete as she can climb out of an exercise pen with ease. Susie has been a little stressed at losing her home but she has become very attached to her foster mom. She forms strong attachments to her human friends but can be wary at first when meeting new people. You have to go slow with her to earn her trust. Susie is extremely food motivated so the way to this girl’s heart is definitely through her stomach. She walks nicely on a leash and gets along well with other dogs. She might benefit from having a calm canine companion in her new home who can show her the ropes and help boost her confidence in a new environment. Susie would not be a good candidate for apartment or condo living as she can be very vocal when stressed or things are not to her liking. She has a very high pitched bark which would likely be problematic in a shared wall living arrangement. Susie has done well with crate-training in her foster home so should continue that in her new home. She walks well on a leash and, although she only weighs about 8-9 pounds, she’s got the stamina and drive to be a great hiking buddy. Her adoption fee is $250. 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. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Susie. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under the age of 7 years. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
