Foster home needed for Heartworm positive Prince Naveen!
This handsome boy was surrendered to the shelter right before Christmas because his family was moving and not able to take him along. He is a 5 year old American Bulldog mix weighing in at about 70 pounds. He can be timid and nervous with handling, especially with new people, so he must go to either an adult home on one where any children are over the age of 12. Other dogs in the home are ok but he does not like feline friends. Prince walks great on a leash and LOVES toys! He is a goofball that loves to play!
Treatment for heartworm can last a few months so he will need a foster home for a minimum of 3 months, potentially longer. During that time the Humane Society will provide all supplies and needed veterinary care for him at no cost to the foster family. Foster parents will be responsible to transport him to the shelter for treatment once per month.
A kennel in a shelter, in the winter, is no place for a dog to sit who is undergoing significant medical treatment. The chances that he will recover well and keep his sanity are increased if we can find him a warm and safe home in which to get healthier. Help us help Prince Naveen in his journey to his forever home!
