4yr old Lab/Sharpei mix
Flint is a sweet guy that is looking for a second chance at life. He will require a patient home with no children as he can be very nervous of unpredictable movements and loud noises. He came to us very hand shy, fearful of the leash and collar, and it appears he has not been much of a house dog. He is looking for a cat free home at this time and no small critters. He will require a fenced yard, as he is still learning about the leash and will require baby steps to be able to walk down the street on leash. We think he was a farm type dog that only lived outdoors as he doesn't seem to know what the comforts of life are all about. He will eat soft toys and bedding so needs to learn that these things aren't very hethy for his tummy. He is clean so far in his kennel, however he does not love it in there. He enjoys being close to his care givers, he likes giving hugs, is still a bit nervous recieving hugs, and he loves to be outside. Flint is going to require a home that is also able and willing to take him on under a medical contract as he is currently undergoing heartworm treatment. This means as a new home you must be willing and able to follow vet guidelines for treatment, keep him calm and on minimal activity, administer his medications on time according to schedule and get him to and from his scheduled vet appointments. Paws United will cover the cost of his heartworm treatment until he gets a negative heartworm result. So a local home would be a bonus, unless his new family is willing to continue his treatment as laid out with their own vet at their own cost.
Flint has been vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, dewormed, treated with Revolution and undergoing heartworm treatment. He came to us as an unclaimed stray from Animal Care Centre Lobo.
The adoption fee is $350 and includes spay/neuter (dogs over 6 months), vaccines, heartworm test (dogs over 6 months), deworming, Flea and tick prevention and microchip. Please visit www.paws-united.com to fill out an application.
**For puppies under 6 months a $100 spay/neuter rebate will be given with proof of spay/neuter certificate signed by a vet, if they have not been done prior to adoption.**
**Please note we DO NOT adopt our dogs as outdoor/farm dogs. These dogs are coming to us as stray, roaming or dogs that have lived a life tied to a chain. Our goal is to bring them in the house off the chain and give them a pampered indoor dogs lifestyle. Unless otherwise stated we will not even consider a home that has intentions of leaving our dogs outdoors or tied to a chain**
