50687 – Andreas
Medical Case – In Treatment for Heartworms
Why choose me?
Update 3/9: Andreas received Diroban shots recently to treat his heartworms. He will be on crate rest for the next month; please let staff know if you’d like to meet him!
Update 1/13 Andreas’ day trip: This handsome fella was just neutered a couple days ago and he is still on crate rest at the shelter and since it was a cold, rainy day I thought he might rest better in a warm dog bed or couch. Andreas was brought in with 2 other dogs that were all chained to trees outside. Despite what people have done to him he holds no grudge against humans, to the contrary he wants nothing more than affection. He is such a docile and gentle guy and once he discovered the couch he decided that was his spot. He would be a big sweet couch potato for someone willing to do some house training as he has never lived inside.
Update 1/13: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, Andreas has been neutered and brought up-to-date on his basic vaccinations!
Update 12/29: Unfortunately, Andreas has tested positive for heartworms. As a result, he is only available to a rescue or to an adopter able to afford the cost of his heartworm treatment (while Athenspets can help with the cost, treatment can cost $500-$800 or more), able to provide him with a calm home environment for his recovery period, and committed to keeping him on monthly heartworm preventative for his entire life. To learn more about heartworms, please visit the American Heartworm Society webpage or talk to your veterinarian.
Andreas came in with Andre and Big Boy. They lived together and look like brothers. I had Andreas and Andre out together, and they are best buds who had a great time stretching their legs and being together outside. They’re good-sized boys but always behaved and never jumped up on me–even when getting treats! Andreas would sit for them right away while Andre liked to hop on two legs (just for a second) before sitting. They were both shy about being petted when I first met them, but that ended when I started sneaking a few pets in with their treats. Andreas and Andre are big, gentle sweeties and I enjoyed being with them. They’re presently sharing a kennel and are happy being together but even happier when a new friend visits and takes them out! (Ask for help taking them out but individually they’re each easy to walk on a leash!)
