Bishop

Hound

 
X-Large  |  Male

Mount Airy, NC

 

Bishop was a terrified, hungry, abused, and injured dog when SAR volunteers were finally able to catch him after many failed attempts. An exam by a veterinarian showed a dog that had been badly abused. He was underweight, heartworm positive, and had an embedded harness! Bishop was scared of humans and human contact. He trusted nobody.
Bishop's long road of recovery began with emergency surgery to remove the embedded harness. Infection had already set in. After rest, good nutrition, and plenty of antibiotics, Bishop recovered. Next, he had to endure months of heartworm treatment. He came through with flying colors and was eventually given a clean bill of health.
Bishop is 3 years old now and is physically completely healed up and healthy! Emotionally, however, he still struggles with trust and is extremely shy when he meets someone new. Strange sounds and objects can scare him, so he will need patience and understanding from his forever family. Once he gets to know you, he quickly bonds with you and stays right by your side! How amazing that he can still be so loyal to humans after all he has been through. Bishop absolutely loves other dogs and finds a great deal of comfort in their presence, so he prefers a family with another dog. He enjoys going to his local doggie daycare and playing with his friends.
Bishop is house-trained and loves going for walks. He also enjoys playing in the water and swimming! He is a big boy, weighing 100 pounds, but he is so gentle and affectionate.
Bishop needs a loving forever family to continue is rehabilitation and love him unconditionally. Please consider offering him a forever home with all the love and nurturing from a family that he so deserves!
*FENCED YARD REQUIRED (no underground/invisible fences)
