Meet Onyx! Onyx is a friendly and affectionate little guy! He loves to snuggle and give kisses. He is a great lap dog and will make a wonderful companion! Onyx is not housetrained and does not know how to walk well on a leash. He will need a patient owner to work with him on basic training. Given his confidence and eagerness to please, we feel he will be a quick learner!
Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. 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, spay/neuter surgery (for dogs over 6 months old), rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dog also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.
