Spuds is a very cute 1 year-old Border Collie/Beagle mix male with lots of spunk. He tested positive for heartworms at a rural county dog shelter which would have meant euthanasia there since they don’t have the resources to save HW positive dogs. Fortunately for Spuds, a shelter volunteer reached out to us for help with him so he made the trip to Canine Lifeline to get the lifesaving treatment that he needed. Spuds was treated for heartworms in late April and did very well so is now ready to find a permanent home. As cute as he is, Spuds has a bit of a stubborn, independent streak so will do best in a home with a dog-experienced person or family. He gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home but can be a little reactive when meeting new dogs on a leash. That seems to be improving a bit now that it’s been a number of weeks since he was neutered but his new family will want to work with him on obedience training. Spuds has excellent crate manners (although he’s not very fond of his crate!) and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He would do best in a home with a secure fenced yard too. Spuds weighs about 35 pounds and his adoption fee is $200. He’s neutered, current on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Spuds. An approved application is required before we set up meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 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. Spuds’ heartworm treatment cost about $450. If you’d like to make a donation to help with his care so that we can save another dog in the future, please do so on our website at www.caninelifeline.org or by sending a check to Canine Lifeline, PO Box 25742, Garfield Hts OH 44125. Thank you from Spuds and Canine Lifeline! Please visit our website to see more photos of Spuds and to submit an online application.
