Blackie is around 7 years old and he weighs 78 pounds. Several weeks ago, his owner brought him to the shelter and asked them to euthanize him because he had heartworms. His heartworms can be easily treated and he has already started his treatment. At the shelter, Blackie was so shut down and fearful that he did not move most of the day. He was essentially paralyzed by the fear and anxiety from the hardship he endured by losing his home. He would not eat for 10 days and he lost almost 20 pounds. He literally had to be dragged by his leash to go outside.
Blackie found a foster home and he flourished. He went from hiding under the bed to loving to snuggle on the couch with his foster mom and sleeping in her bed and going for walks. Blackie is completely house trained, he walks great on leash, he has perfect house manners, he loves to snuggle, he takes treats with a gentle mouth. He will greet you with joy every time you come home. He would be wonderful with a senior or any person or family. This guy is guaranteed to steal your heart. There are very few options left for this sweet guy.
He is scared of other dogs and does not want to share his human, so he prefers to be the one and only in a household.
Please open your heart and your home to him….and he will show you what it really means to RESCUE a dog. If you are one of those one in a million people who would love to be the one to teach this boy that he is loved, safe, and doesn't have to look over his shoulder, please email email@example.com for more information.
