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/?page_id=64.

Sponsor a Dog! Sponsors help us provide additional medical treatment beyond basic vetting, and helps offset boarding costs when our foster homes are full. K-9 Lifesavers treats dogs with heartworm, parvo, upper respiratory infections, and special surgical procedures. Our adoption fees do not fully cover the additional vetting costs for these illnesses, and/or boarding. For more information on our Sponsor Program, visit: http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=58.

Dog's Name: Sandi

Estimated Breed: gordon setter mix

Approximate Age: 1-2 year

Approximate Weight: 26 lbs

Currently Living at: BOARDING. Open your heart to a wonderful foster dog!

Sandi is an extremely friendly dog and has been the shelter/staff favorite in Tennesse. They feel that she is one of the best dogs they have there and deserves and great home. We are commited to finding her a wonderful home with someone who has time for lots of love and cuddles. We are guessing Sandi was hit by a car and had a broken leg, we got Sandi all patched up and she is good as new! She loves to give those big puppy eyes and get the extra attention from her boo-boo. She is back to running full speed with her canine buddies and is looking for a loving home! Sandi is deeply connected to her caretaker and shows some guarding which we are actively working on with her. She just wants the people she loves all to herself but means no harm.

Your new pet may require a refresher in house-training but is likely crate-trained. K-9 Lifesavers 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 new owner.

The adoption fee for this dog is $295, which includes basic vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and transport costs. If interested in adopting, please download and complete an Adoption Application and email to Julie at juliee@k-9lifesavers.org .
