The Real Slim Pickens!

Introducing, Mr. Slim Pickens, a whopping 9 pounds of non-stop dynamite!

Slim is 4 months old, maybe a Whippet or possibly an Italian Greyhound, who was rescued from a shelter where he was turned in as a stray. Whatever his pedigree, he is full of love and energy.

This guy is extremely active and loves to run around and play with toys. He seems to like other dogs, and is even learning to trust the larger dogs in his foster home. He is showing a bit too much interest in the resident cats, so we feel he would fit best in a home without them.

Slim is very affectionate towards his humans and LOVES to cuddle next to, or on your lap when he is not actively playing.

He is still quite young and he does have some very typical puppy behaviors that will need to be addressed through proper training such as biting, chewing, and jumping. For this reason, Slim would do better in a home without children under the age of 8. He would also not do well being locked in a crate for 8 hours a day (he is improving on the house training, but he is too small to "hold it" all day). Because he is so active, Slim will require a PHYSICALLY FENCED YARD in order to run, romp, and exercise properly.

Slim is not yet fully house trained, but he is improving. He is also vaccinated, micro-chipped, on heart worm and flea preventative, dewormed, and crate trained.

Our adoption fee is $250.00 (cash or credit card) + $75 refundable neuter deposit. He will be REQUIRED to be neutered by 6 months of age.

This sweetheart will be at the Livonia PetSmart on Saturdays from 11-3. Come up and meet this cutie!
