Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Boxer / Bullmastiff / Mixed (short coat)
Weight: Estimated 50 lbs
Estimated Birthdate: 7/17/2013
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Found as stray along with another dog, (Rio) one minute from the rescue by CPR employee
Special Needs: This dog is lightly heartworm positive (HW+). He will be sent home with a year supply of heartworm medication. He is being treated with a method called the slow kill treatment. He takes a monthly Ivermectin based heartworm preventative and needs to be re-tested for heartworms every 6 months. Once he tests negative, then he can take any kind of heartworm preventative; he is not restricted to Ivermectin based only.
What kind of home would be best for me? Lois is a timid girl who takes a little bit to warm up. She would do well in a home with another dog to guide her and learn from. She could also be an only dog with a really patient family. Lois has been around respectful children ages raging form 6-10 and has done extremely well with them. Owner Experience Level 6: More than 10 years as a dog owner. Has worked with at least one behavior issues that did not require professional intervention. OR has worked with one serious medical issue that required professional care (diabetes, epilepsy, Cushing's, Addison's, etc)
What is my personality like: Lois is a young boxer mix who was found as a stray near our rescue in SC. She is an incredibly sweet girl, with a gentle soul but is still shy. Lois gets along well with other dogs. She is learning to play with them. She does know how to sit on command and is motivated by treats to learn more tricks. Lois hasn't started playing with toys, but we suspect this will happen as she builds confidence. We don't know how long she was out on the streets for, but it definitely made this girl timid and nervous. Lois is doing well with training on a leash. For the family that gives this girl time to build trust, she will be a great companion.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Timid but sweet
Tips and Tidbits: Lois was found with the Chihuahua mix, Rio.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
