Guinness, a twelve year old terrier mix, is a senior who is looking for the perfect home to live out the rest of his years. His perfect home would have someone home for most of the day as he likes to spend his days sleeping and being by his people. Guinness is house trained and crate trained. While he used his crate when he first came to his foster family, he rarely uses it now. Some things to know about Guinness are: 1) He has suspected arthritis and takes daily medication which has worked wonders! He would do best in an environment where he wouldn’t have to navigate many stairs/different levels of a house. 2) He had quite a few teeth removed when he underwent a dental procedure a few months ago. He currently eats a diet of mixed hard/soft food. (He’d also do fine with adding water or broth to hard food to soften it). 3) Guinness does not do well with other dogs and would do best in a home with no other dogs. Guinness doesn’t quite know how to respect other dogs’ space and he has shown a tendency to want to keep his favorite people to himself when other dogs are around. He has been exposed to cats and he seemed to do fine with them. Guinness has so many sweet qualities, he’ll make a great addition to the right home. He makes his foster family laugh quite often! He loves going for short walks around the block. He gets excited when he sees his leash come out of his bin! Guinness loves when meeting new people, he hasn’t met a person he hasn’t liked. He does well with children and adults alike. Guinness loves getting his pets from his people and enjoys playing with them. He’s curious and likes to chase anything that moves, like the vacuum, broom, etc.

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
