Triton is a very friendly and outgoing 5 year-old Lab mix who has enjoyed WAY too many treats in the past and is in need of a new family who will make sure he sticks to his healthy diet and exercise regimen. This boy ended up at a county dog shelter for a really silly reason. According to the owner who surrendered him and another dog to the shelter, Triton and his buddy were chasing a cat in their home and accidentally knocked over a 3 year-old child. The owner packed them up and took them to the pound which seems very unfair. We have found Triton to be the most kind, gentle, and loving boy. He fancies himself a lap dog and at his current weight of about 95 pounds, he’s sure to keep you warm on cold winter nights. He knows some commands including sit and shake hands. Triton is also crate-trained and very likely to be housetrained too. He walks nicely on a leash and just needs someone who is going to commit to walking him daily and making sure that he sticks to his diet. When Triton came to us, he weighed a staggering 102 pounds on a frame that should weigh about 60-70 pounds. He is now on low calorie food and has lost 6-7 pounds with 30+ to go to get to his healthy weight. He is going to be so much happier and have so much more pep in his step as he sheds those extra pounds. 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 if you’re interested in Triton. 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.
