Your heart really goes out to little Suzy. This shy but sweet 1 year-old Doxy/Beagle/Chihuahua mix girl was surrendered to an overcrowded county shelter about a week before Christmas along with her canine brother Rebel because the family was moving and couldn’t take the dogs with them. Both Suzy and Rebel made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they could relax in a foster home while searching for permanent new homes. With everything familiar to her now gone, Suzy is understandably confused by all the change in her life. There isn’t a mean bone in her body but Suzy has been very shy and timid since her arrival here with us. She doesn’t seem to be particularly bonded to Rebel but she does seem to be more comfortable when she’s around another dog so we hope to find a home for her with a calm, canine buddy to help her transition to her new environment. In her previous home, Suzy apparently lived with kids and cats as well as Rebel and did well with all of them. She has had excellent crate manners in her foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in her new home. Given her shyness, it would be beneficial for Suzy to have a yard with a secure aboveground fence to keep her safe at home. We’re sure that once she feels like she’s home again, Suzy is going to relax and be a devoted companion for one lucky person or family. Suzy weighs about 20 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 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. Please email if you’re interested in Suzy. 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 7 years of age.
