Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year.
ADOPTION DATE 06-07-19: Levi was rescued in Texas and is being cared for in a CT foster home. He had a rough start to life, however, it has not changed his spirit. He loves to run and play outside, gets along great with other dogs. . He is a beautiful male black Flat-Coated retriever, he is five and a half months old between 35 and 40 lb. He has four white paws, jet black eyes, and black thick furry coat, he is absolutely beautiful.
Levi is very affectionate and very playful. He also is very alert to what’s going on around him. He listens well and rides well in the car, crate trained, house-trained and learning his manners as far as counter surfing and jumping. His life was saved by a kind hearted southern woman; she picked him up and took him to the vet.
GREAT VIDEO OF LEVI
That ideal home would be one where his family would have a lot time to devote to Levi and understand that perfection is possible, but that it doesn’t happen overnight. Any new rescue dog requires time, patience and understanding. One that has the added baggage of rescue and an unfortunate past requires even more of all the above, but as we’ve found with all the dogs in our care once they’re re-homed, they also tend to offer more generous servings of commitment, loyalty, companionship and devotion for they sense deep gratitude at being loved and feel obligated to show it in every interaction.
That’s true for Levi who is just as precious as can be and eager, ready and waiting to be part of your family! Already he’s learning and responding well to this new vibe of life and affection that he’s been experiencing in his CT foster home. Levi is truly a supremely sweet and such a special dog! He would make a great addition to any family.
