Meet Whitney, a very friendly and outgoing 1.5 year-old Terrier mix female who was surrendered to an overcrowded county dog shelter along with her buddy Lindy. The shelter was full and closed to intake but when they saw the condition of Whitney and Lindy, they took them in and immediately got them to a vet for treatment. Whitney was diagnosed with demodectic mange (noncontagious) and a skin infection that resulted in hair loss around the base of her tail. Both Whitney and Lindy made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they could receive ongoing medical attention for their skin. Whitney’s mange has been treated and she’s on Apoquel and an oral antibiotic to quell the itching and treat the skin infection. She’s feeling so much better now and her inner puppy is starting to emerge. Whitney loves to play with toys and relax with her chewie. She has been working on her leash skills since coming to us and making a little progress on that each day. Whitney has also been working on crate-training and with some positive and consistent direction on the part of her new family, should be able to master the house rules quickly in her new home. She’s a delightful little dog who gets along with other dogs and enjoys meeting new people too. Whitney is going to make an outstanding companion for one very lucky person or family. She weighs about 23 pounds and her adoption fee is $350. 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 info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Whitney. 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 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
