52489 – Hunts
Medical Case – Treated for heartworms (on crate rest until 1/31)
Why choose me?
Update 1/2: Thanks to a grant from Susie’s Senior Dogs, Hunts has received the injections needed to kill his heartworms. He will be on crate rest until January 31.
Update 12/6: Hunts is in a shelter foster home! Please call the shelter at 706-613-3540 and ask to speak to Nicollette if you’d like to meet this sweet senior for adoption or rescue!
Update 11/15: Hunts will soon be ready for his heartworm shots and would do best recovering in a home. Could you bring this great guy home for a few weeks to give him a calm and safe place to crash while he recovers? To learn more about fostering Hunts or another shelter dog, please call 706-613-3540 and ask to speak with Nicollette!
Update 10/22: Unfortunately, Hunts 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.
Unfortunately for Hunts, this is not his first rodeo at Athens-Clarke County Animal Control. As an active dog, I could tell immediately that Hunts does not love being confined in a pen. He had an absolute blast running around, exercising, and chasing balls and bones. He could have gone all day fetching the nylon bone and bringing it back to me. Hunts was surrendered with his best friend Hachi. They’re both good with children and other dogs. Even at 7 years, Hunts can jump a fence, so he needs a home where he’s an inside dog or has a fence he can’t jump. I really enjoyed my time with Hunts, and I think he would do great with an active person or family who likes to run and play fetch!
