DOG'S DESCRIPTION
Meet Tiny Tim! He is looking for a loving, quiet, and nurturing home to live out his twilight years. Tiny Tim is slightly apprehensive at first, but opens up given patience and time. He will need an all adult household (no children) and a single family home with a fenced yard. Tiny Tim does walk on leash okay, but is low energy and would be happiest with quick access to a backyard. Tiny Tim does bully other dogs (Napoleon complex?) and needs to be in an only dog household, BUT he's good with cats...go figure!?! He does have arthritis in his back legs and doesn't use them normally. There is nothing medically to do for the little guy and he gets around just fine. We give him some Glucosamine supplement on his food.
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. For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/foster/ or email our Foster Coordinator at foster@k-9lifesavers.org
