Sweet Pea

If you like your dogs active and pint-sized, look no further than Sweet Pea! This little 8 year-old, 11 pound dynamo is a Rat Terrier mix who finds herself in need of a new home. She belonged to an elderly lady who recently developed health problems and was no longer able to care for her Sweet Pea. Sweet Pea had been staying in a boarding facility for several months while the lady’s family sought a rescue for her. She recently moved to a foster home with Canine Lifeline while she searches for a permanent new home. We have discovered that Sweet Pea really prefers to be the only pet in her new home. She’s not a fan of other dogs and gets especially annoyed if another dog tries to play with her. She had always lived as an only pet and would like to continue that in her new home. We did introduce her to kitties and she would much rather not share their company either! Although she’s quite a spunky gal, Sweet Pea is looking for a home with a mature family—one or two adults—without a lot of visitors. She will be absolutely devoted to her new family but prefers to avoid a lot of chaos and confusion that comes with lots of visitors to her home. Sweet Pea has done well on crate-training in her foster home and should pick up the housetraining rules quickly in her new home. After being in a boarding kennel for several months, she is likely to need a little direction on that in her new home. Sweet Pea loves to go for a walk and keeps up a brisk pace. We think she’s got lots of good years ahead of her and is eager to share her love with someone special. Sweet Pea weighs about 11 pounds and her adoption fee is $150. 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. She recently had a much-needed dental cleaning and now has a pearly white smile. 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 Sweet Pea. 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 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
