51562 – Feliz
Medical Case – Heartworms 🙁
Why choose me?
Update 5/19: Unfortunately, Feliz is back for his second stint at the shelter. According to his previous owner, Feliz had bitten a member of the family and had aggressive tendencies. After spending twenty minutes with him, it was absolutely shocking to hear that he had this behavior in his past. He displayed zero excitability or aggressive tendencies toward me. When I took him out of his kennel he did not growl, bark or even come forward when I opened the door. Inside the interaction pen he enjoyed some treats that I had and wanted to drink water and plop down on the ground, as the 90 degree heat is a lot to handle for a stocky dog with a black coat! Given his past, Feliz may be best suited with someone who has a good handle on dogs with behavior issues, but I can honestly say that in my brief time with him, Feliz is a dog with a lot of potential!
Update 5/17: Feliz was adopted but returned because he wasn’t a good fit for the family. He was tested with the family’s dog and did well, but he’s used to being an outdoor dog and was nervous inside. He jumped up and nipped someone in the home but didn’t break the skin. It could be that Feliz needs to be an outdoor dog (with a fenced yard and appropriate shelter) or possibly be slowly introduced to living inside. He’s still a sweet dog who’s looking for his right match.
Update 5/13: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, Feliz is neutered and up-to-date on his basic vaccinations!
What do you call a dog who looks like a short, stocky lab? Adorable! That’s Feliz! I fell in love not only with his looks but his good-nature. He’s a happy boy who’s friendly to all. He’d hang out with Delilah and Rufus at the fence then come running to join me under my umbrella. He’d scoot close for pets and treats and was all sweetness and love. Feliz’s former owner said he’s good with kids and was an outside dog. Unfortunately, he’s heartworm positive and not available for adoption until he is neutered. Feliz will make you smile and if given a chance, be your very best buddy!
