This super-cute 5-6 month-old pup is Turtle, a Jack Russell mix with a little scruff on his face. He found himself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter so came to Canine Lifeline to find himself a fantastic new home. We don’t have any history on his previous life or know how he came to be at the shelter but this youngster is ready for fun and eager to leave his past in the rearview mirror. Turtle gets along well with other dogs so would really enjoy having a canine buddy in his new home. For a youngster, he has excellent crate manners so should be able to pick up the housetraining rules quickly in his new home. Leash walking is new to Turtle and, at the moment, something he’s working on but we’re sure he’ll soon realize how much fun going for a walk is and start trotting along nicely. Turtle weighs about 20 pounds currently and we expect he’ll be 30-35 pounds once full-grown. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm 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 Turtle. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under the age of 7 years.
