Homer came to SoCo as a happy little guy. He's a bright boy that caught onto routine pretty quick. He loves people but can be assertive with other dogs. Homer can be selective about the friends he chooses and a meeting prior to adoption is required. Homer would do well as an only dog in a household without small children.
Homer did test positive for heart worms on 5/20/16. While the test can't determine the amount of heart worms that a dog has, a vet can and typically determines the "level" of infection based on a number of factors, including the amount of time it takes for the test results to appear. In Homer's case the results took the full allotted 10 minutes to appear and the "line" was very faint, leading our vet to interpret his level of infection as "very slight". Our vet recommended that Homer be kept on a monthly heart worm preventative and then retested in six months. This method of treating heart worms is referred to as the "Slow Kill" method. For more information on the different methods of treating heart worms we recommend following this link: http://www.dogaware.com/articles/wdjheartwormtreatment.html#heartgard. You can also contact our vet to discuss Homer's level of heart worms and treatment by calling the Sandersville Animal Clinic at (478) 552-0016.
Homer does seem to be in relatively good health otherwise. He is current on all his vaccinations and he is neutered. Once in his new environment Homer will need a refresher course in house breaking. If interested in this wonderful little guy please submit an application to www.socorescue.com.
