****  Dougie is still having issues after his heart worm treatment.  He went to a cardiologist for an echocardiogram and his heart is fine - no damage and working perfectly.  However, he still has some fluid buildup in his abdomen.  It is being medically  managed with diuretics and a change in food.  The specialist felt that he had a liver shunt or a congential issue with his left kidney.  There is no treatment other than what is being done now and in all likelihood, Dougie will need to be on a special diet and diuretics for the remainder of his life.  Life span will be shortened but the vet felt confident that Dougie still has many great years ahead of him.    


Adoption fee is $300 and we will be getting him neutered before he is adopted once the go ahead has been given by the vet.

HACHI - on medical hold

ABBY


Gender:  female
Size:  small to medium.  Weighs 20 pounds and is fully grown.

Energy level:  medium.  Needs a couple daily walks   
Age:  approximately  2 to 3 years old  
Good with dogs:  yes.    
Good with cats:  untested 
Good with children:   yes (8+)
Housebroken:  yes  
Crate-trained:   yes
Vetting already done:  vaccines & micro-chip.  Current on monthly preventatives.  

Heart worm status:  positive.  Abby will be starting a 30 day course of Doxycycline shortly to prep her for the 3 injections of Immiticide (Melarsomine) to kill the adult heart worms.  We are hoping to have this treatment started in March so she can be heart worm free by September.  If Abby gets adopted before she starts treatment, we will still financially cover the treatment.   Once given the go ahead from the vet after treatment, Abby will be spayed.  
Vetting to be done after adoption:  monthly preventatives.  

Other information:  Abby was not pulled from Ozato.  Instead she was taken off the streets when she was very pregnant.  This was at least her second litter of puppies as we had taken in her first litter of puppies when they were about 12 weeks old.  Once taken into foster care, Abby had her puppies about 4 days later and she had 5 healthy puppies.  The puppies are now in different foster homes waiting for their "fur-ever" homes giving Abby a much needed break while her veterinary care is being handled. 


​Adoption fee:  $300 and we will be paying for her heart worm treatment and her spay.
