T.J. was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved. T.J. is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative, and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 30 August 2017 and at the time of rescue at the end of September 2018 weighed around 12.00 pounds. He is listed as a Border Terrier Mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
T.J. is an adorable, sweet boy who loves to be in the center of whatever is going on. He is always outside chasing and playing with all of his friends but as soon as he hears or see me, he comes charging in tail wagging so hard it wags his body in excitement. He loves to get snuggles and his ears scratched. He is good with other dogs and enjoys their company, currently living with dogs from 6 pound chihuahua's up to 120 pound German Shepherd Dogs. He is friendly and happy to greet people. He enjoys exploring outside and when ready to rest he curls up with his friends in front of the pellet stove keeping toasty warm. He is always happy to see people and runs in with the other dogs, tail wagging.
He is young and active and always has a smile on his face. He will need a family that can give him a good active life, suitable for his size. He is a love bug and is more than happy to sit by your side or follow you whilst doing daily jobs, but can also easily entertain himself chewing on the hooves. I have not seen him with children, but his demeanor and personality I have no doubt that he would be great with them and a lot of fun too.
All dogs (except dogs saved from China) are available for adoption for an adoption fee of $550. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.
