Newest update from Henry’s temporary foster – March 17, 2020
"Henry’s skin and eyes are looking so much better just after 1 bath with his medicated shampoo and starting him on his new food. He is such a sweet boy and will make a great companion to a moderately active family.”
This sweet old man was found and never reclaimed. He is neutered, heartworm negative and just as sweet as can be. He's great with other dogs, rides well in the car and is only 8 years old. Doesn't he look much older than that? Well, that's because he has something going on with his skin...poor guy. He had a skin scrape, which showed negative results for mange and/or parasites, which leads us to believe he has some type of allergy. With a high-quality diet, a wellness exam and some TLC, we're certain that Henry will blossom into the beautiful boy that he was meant to be.
Henry is at a temporary foster while he waits for his transport to MLRR. This is what his foster said about him: "He's not overly playful. He is still getting adjusted, but he would prefer to be petted and loved on. He seems to be house trained. He walks well on a leash, and doesn’t mind my 7-month-old lab puppies and seems pretty laid back and easy going."
Henry is eligible for our Direct Adoption Program. This program is for MLRR Approved Adopters interested in puppies less than 1 year old, dogs over 7 years old and medical case dogs, including dogs that test positive for heartworm. An Approved Adopter takes ownership of the dog for a 2-week wellness period. That time is extended for dogs with extensive medical needs (like heartworm) since treatment times are typically longer. During the wellness period, MLRR covers all medical expenses. Once the treatment is completed, the adoption is finalized.
