DOG'S DESCRIPTION
Little Bit is a sweet and quiet little lap dog. She is looking for a loving, quiet, and nurturing home to live out their twilight years. She is apprehensive at first and when frightened she may nip as a defensive mechanism due to her limited sight (bilateral cateracts), but once acclimated to her new surroundings and trusts you she is 100% lap dog. She will approach for attention and is very affectionate after an initial 'breaking in' period. She will need an all adult household (no children). Little Bit does walk on leash okay, but is low energy and would be happiest with quick access to a backyard or even better, a pee pad so she doesn't have to go out in the cold big world where she can't see danger lurking. She is well trained to the peepads. She sleeps in the big bed under the covers and would appreciate a family that allows that luxury.
Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers cannot guarantee that our dogs won't have accidents in their new home, even if they are fully house broken in their current foster home as they have to adjust to new environment, routine, and schedule. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.
Adoption fees cover basic vetting, rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention (while in our care), monthly flea/tick prevention, and our transport costs. As part of the adoption agreement, adopters agree to get the pup spayed/neutered by 6 months of age. K-9 Lifesavers do not cover the cost of spay/neuter for puppies 6 months and younger.
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.
