Meet Tanner, a good-looking 9 month-old Retriever mix male with a beautiful coat, gorgeous eyes, and a sweet disposition. He was found running loose with his buddy Kona and taken to the local county dog shelter. Neither dog was claimed there so they made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they could take their time finding great new homes. We don’t know whether Tanner and Kona shared the same home in the past or just met while on the loose but they don’t seem to be particularly attached to each other and may be adopted separately. Tanner is a very sweet and friendly pup who has been fine with all people and dogs he’s met since coming to us. He has done well with crate-training in his foster home and with some consistent positive direction on the part of his new family is sure to pick up the house rules without too much trouble. Leash walking has been a bit of a new experience for Tanner but with some daily practice in his new home, he’s sure to soon be walking like a pro. Tanner would enjoy having a canine buddy in his new home who can show him the ropes as well as a secure aboveground fenced yard to keep him safe at home. Tanner weighs about 33 pounds currently but will likely be 40+ pounds once full-grown. His adoption fee is $325. 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.
