Christine is available ( Updated 10-20-2018 )
Christine's owner passed away and the kids took her to the shelter. Yes, you've heard that before and, yes, it happens all of the time. This Belgian Malinois/GSD cross probably never left her backyard, as everything outside of that place is totally new, scary, and overwhelming. She's very sweet, but really needs a home (preferably with one or more dogs) that can show her how to trust and give her structure, which will make her more comfortable.
Do you like helping dogs in need? Are you familiar with scared dogs? If you help Christine get over her fear and come out of her shell, she would thank you until the end of time! She's great with dogs, but would do best in a home with no children (they're just too scary at this point).
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
