Guess what? I qualify for Foster to Adopt! This means that you can bring me home for up to 7 days before finalizing my adoption to see how I fit into your lifestyle.
I arrived at HSC in April of 2020 with 7 nursing puppies who were just a few days old. I was malnourished. You could see my spine and hip bones with ease. I had an infection in both ears with patches of dry skin and hair loss. I also tested a high positive for heartworm. Despite my condition, I allowed the medical staff at HSC to handle all of my puppies during their health examinations.
After only two weeks in foster, my milk production decreased and my health began to decline. I was brought in for an emergency Veterinary visit and it was determined that my heartworm condition was causing heart failure. I could no longer care for my puppies, so they were sent to foster families to be bottle fed and raised.
Fast forward to now, I have successfully undergone heartworm treatment and am no longer in heart failure! My treatment was made possible through the Have A Heart medical fund. My heartworm condition was advanced and without the generous donations of the Charlotte community, I would not have survived.

While undergoing heartworm treatment, I was placed in a foster home to recover. In foster, I am reported to be snuggly and sweet with my foster parents. I would be nervous when new friends came over to visit, but with a proper introduction to your friends, I will be just as sweet on them too!
I've had an opportunity to meet other dogs during my stay at HSC but I prefer the company of the staff and volunteers. Because of this, I will be most successful in a home without other dogs.
If you are interested in adopting me, find my profile at www.petango.com/HSC and fill out the adoption questionnaire to get started! An adoption counselor will reach out to you with more information and to set up a time for adoption.
