52129 – Hercules
Medical case – Heartworms 🙁
Update 10/20: Hercules is enjoying life with his foster as he begins his heart worm treatment! He is doing great in the home and loves lounging on the couch! Some bonuses: he’s house broken and doing well living with cats 🐱!!! He will be ready for his forever home once he is finished with his treatment.
Update 10/8: Hercules is in a shelter foster home. To make arrangements to meet him, please call the shelter at 706-613-3540 or message our Facebook page (Athenspets – GA)!
Update 9/16: Hercules and Chiquita were playmates. Chiquita was adopted today, but it’s nice to know that Hercules played well with another dog! I’ve always found Hercules to be a sweet, easy-going fellow. He’s well-mannered, enjoys attention, and has been friendly to everyone he’s met. He’s a super dog who’s still waiting for his special person or family to find him.
Update 8/20: Unfortunately, Hercules has tested positive for heartworms. While Athenspets will try to help with the cost of treatment, an adopter or rescue needs to be prepared to cover at least some of the expense. For more information about heartworms, including what treating them involves, please go to the American Heartworm Society’s webpage,
The best part of my day was getting to meet this lovable goofball named Hercules! This sweet boy was so excited to go play in a pen with me and really loved getting some butt scratches! His facial expressions for my photos were cracking me up, I really think they show his playful, energetic spirit. I did notice that Hercules would occasionally run to the fence door looking for a way to get out and go do some more exploring. Perhaps that is how he ended up at ACCAC. In fact, this is not the first time Hercules has been picked up as a stray. Unfortunately, staff are unable to reach his owner this time. Therefore, if he is not reclaimed, this adorable ham will be looking for a new forever family! He seemed excited to meet other dogs, wagging his tail furiously when meeting along the fenceline. Come check out Hercules, he is a very friendly and fun young dog!
