Tag is a gorgeous 1 year-old Lab/Flat-coated Retriever mix male who was surrendered to an overcrowded county dog shelter with his mother Tory and his siblings Dutch and Daphne. The entire family made their way to Canine Lifeline so they could relax and enjoy life in foster homes as they searched for permanent homes. It was clear that Tag had never been on a leash before entering the shelter and he had to be carried (all 48 pounds of him!) for the first few days after his arrival here with us. Now that he’s been with us a few weeks, Tag is really starting to come out of his shell. He walks quite nicely on a leash and will only get better with daily walks in his new home. He did very well for his photo shoot which was done a few weeks after his arrival and we were all very proud of his progress. Tag is very food-motivated and has excellent crate manners so should pick up the housetraining routine quickly in his new home. We do want to place Tag in a home with another dog as he is much more confident when he’s around other dogs. He would likely be sad and lonely as an only dog. If you’ve got the time and patience to allow Tag to adjust to his new home in his own time, you’ll be rewarded with a fantastic companion for years to come. Tag weighs about 48 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, 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 Tag. 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.
