Dempsey is an 8 month old Heeler mix. He has basic obedience training, travels well, and plays with other gentle non-overbearing dogs his size. He's a little shy of bigger dogs and dogs that are very forward. Dempsey could use a foster or adoptive family that will continue to nurture his confidence. He will eventually be a great exercise partner and would best fit in an active home that can engage him often.
Current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. Current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative.
Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).
Local adoptions preferred (within Greater New Orleans area and surrounding parishes). We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.
