Suzy Q-ADOPTED!

Suzy Q is a beautiful 1 year-old girl who looks like she might be a mix of Doxie and Sheltie although that’s purely a guess. This little lady came into an overcrowded county dog shelter as a stray so we have no history on her. She made the trip to Canine Lifeline at the end of July so she would be able to enjoy life in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. When she arrived, what a surprise to find out that Suzy Q was pregnant and due to deliver one puppy (confirmed by x-ray) within a week. On August 5, she gave birth to one chunky healthy little pup who we named Spuds. Suzy Q is still very much of a puppy herself. She seemed very surprised when this little guy appeared! She did take good care of him but LOVES to play so sometimes had to be reminded to go take care of little Spuds. Once Spuds got a litter older, he and Suzy Q would play and wrestle like crazy. Now that Spuds has been adopted, Suzy Q is ready to find her forever home. Suzy Q is a very active little dog who can be a little fearful in new situations. She is still very much of a puppy herself and can be mouthy at times so wouldn’t be good around small children. She is living with other dogs in her foster home but can be protective of her food, toys, and treats around them so she might enjoy being the only dog in the home. If there is another dog, he or she would need to be an active pup who can keep up with Suzy Q and one who would like to play chase and wrestle with her. She is not yet housetrained but is pee pad trained so her new family would need to work with her on the transition from pee pads to outdoors. This girl is going to need lots of positive reinforcement training and direction to channel all of her energy in a positive direction but the dog experienced person or family who has the time and patience to work with her is going to be rewarded with a fabulous companion for years to come. Suzy Q weighs all of about 9-10 pounds and 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. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
