Valerie is a fun-loving 2 year-old Basset Hound mix female who not only has a great disposition but is beyond cute too. She has the most beautiful markings and those big Basset feet and short legs are especially charming. Valerie found herself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter so made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could enjoy life in a foster home while she searched for her permanent home. This girl has been very quiet and well-mannered in her foster home. She likes to play with her fellow foster dogs but settles down nicely in her crate for a nap once playtime is over. She is not a hyper dog and has just the right amount of energy for walks/hikes/playtime but doesn’t need to be on the go all the time. Valerie has excellent crate manners so may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. She’s a very entertaining dog and is sure to keep a big grin on her family’s faces from the minute she moves into her new home. Valerie was a good sport during her photo shoot and didn’t even mind modeling sunglasses! Valerie weighs about 44 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, 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 Valerie. 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.
