I'm Lithium, Adopt Me!
Pointer Mix | Adult | Male

Five-year-old Lithium is a polite, easygoing, go-with-the-flow sort of fellow looking for a nice home to settle into. He likes to stay active and enjoys calm, leisurely walks, spending extra time to explore and investigate all of the wonderful smells of the surrounding area. He’s also a professional Relaxation Expert and loves to curl up in a comfortable spot – especially after getting a few nice pets! Lithium’s sweet, low-key nature and down-to-Earth charm makes him a great fit for nearly any type of home. Lithium has a positive history with other dogs. He currently weighs 69 pounds.

All dogs benefit from training! ARF was named 'Best in the East Bay for Dog Training' in 2016, 2017 and 2018 by Diablo Magazine. All adopters receive a $50 discount off their first class.

Lithium's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid state-issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children and family dogs. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more cute canines.
