Howard was found as a stray in rural Kentucky. He has some pretty serious wounds and his teeth are broken off from trying to get out of whatever he was caught in, possibly a trap.
Howard is currently at VCA in Indianapolis receiving the best care for his wounds and condition. If he continues to improve he will be released to his foster home this week.
UPDATE!! Howard underwent surgery to close his wounds and to be neutered and did beautifully!! He is now in his foster home and is settling in very well. He is eating well and gaining some weight and when he is healthy enough he will undergo heartworm treatment.
THE LATEST: Howard is looking and feeling MUCH better these days!! He had a vet visit today and was found to be heartwom negative so he is all ready to find his furever home!!! Howard has been with us for a month and gets along great with our 9 year old female boxer. He loves to snuggle with you and has a lot of love to give. He recently spent the day with another female dog and after an hour they were great friends.
8/24 UPDATE: Don't let Howard's age fool you. Despite a very few gray hairs Howie still acts like a much younger dog. He has lots of love and energy to give. He likes cats a little too much so he should not go to a house that has one. He gets along great with our resident female boxer and other big dogs. At his vet visit today he got another clean bill of health. He shows no signs of slowing down.
OCTOBER 2016 UPDATE: Howard is back in Indiana with his original foster. He did fantastic on his long trip from Minnesota to Indiana...he loves riding in the car. He is full of love and kisses for everyone he meets. Howard does pretty good on the leash, listens well and corrects easily. He has LOTS of energy for an older boy and does need a little help with some basic manners...not jumping on new friends and learning how to take treats gently, but he is very food motivated and smart and will train easily :) If you are in the Indianapolis area you just have to meet this handsome boy!!!
