How this sweet handsome dog ended up in an overcrowded county dog shelter is beyond us! Thackery is a 1 year-old, 27 pound Terrier mix who looks like an overgrown Cairn Terrier. He looks even larger to us than his 27 pounds would suggest—more like a Cairn on steroids! Whatever breeds have contributed to Thackery’s family tree, we can say that he is one VERY nice dog. Thackery has been very friendly with all people that he’s met since coming to Canine Lifeline. He also gets along well with other dogs and enjoys his playtime with his fellow foster dogs in his foster home. Thackery also loves toys of all kinds but especially tennis balls with which he seems to be able to keep himself entertained for quite awhile. Thackery trots along nicely on a leash and is really looking forward to having lots of adventures in his new home. He has excellent crate manners so may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Thackery is eager to sit for a treat and may know some other commands that we haven’t discovered yet. He takes treats very gently and can even catch them on the fly like a pro. 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.
