Travis is an active and energetic 1 year-old Field Spaniel mix male who came into an overcrowded rural county dog shelter as a stray and when he wasn’t claimed, he made the trip to Canine Lifeline to find himself a great new home. His plans were put on hold for a few months though as Travis tested positive for heartworms upon arrival. He went through lifesaving heartworm treatment and did very well so is now ready to find that perfect new home. Travis is a really good guy who was VERY wound up when we were taking his photos. He’s typically a much more mellow, calm boy in his foster home but thought being in front of the camera was too much fun. Travis gets along very well with other dogs, has excellent crate manners, and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He’s eager to become someone’s pampered pup and start having lots of fun adventures with his new family. Now that he’s completed his heartworm treatment, Travis can run, play, and join his new family on daily walks. Travis weighs about 25 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, current on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea 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 if you’re interested in Travis. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs.
