733 Flint – COMING SOON!

Adoptable crate trainedgood with other dogs

Flint is about a 5 year old 67 pound shepherd mix(maybe a little Rottweiler) who had fallen on some hard times when he found his way into a rural northern California shelter. He had a broken front leg and he tested positive for heartworms. His leg was splinted and has healed nicely. The shelter did all the preliminary requirements for his heartworm treatment when we saw his adorable face and said we’d help. We know he’s not a lab, but he’s a really nice dog worth us giving him a second chance. We are just getting to know him while he is required to stay calm and quiet for the next 30 days, but so far, he’s shown us that he’s up for the challenge! He calmly met his new foster dog friends and they showed him around the yard then he came into the house where he is going to be resting in his crate a lot. He’ll go in for his next treatment a month from the first one which will make him good as new. In the meantime, he’ll get house trained if he isn’t already and teach him house manners and some basic obedience. He already knows sit, shake and walks ok on a leash. And though he isn’t a lab, he has the lab lean down to an art form…this dog is the biggest cuddly teddy bear you’ll ever meet. If you look directly at his face, you can see the shape of a heart that starts at his eyebrows and stops around his neck. It’s a big heart that fits the love he shares. He loves any contact you give him. We are looking for his foster to adopt home if someone is interested in adopting him, that way he can adjust to his new home while finishing his treatment.
