You remember Spot? So many of you chipped in to give him a chance!
Spot is a German Shorthair/Dalmation mix (or some semblance of that...) and is about 3 years old. He is simply stunning. He was owner surrender at Caddo Animal Control and was on the euthanasia list a couple of times -- the volunteers there kept buying more time for him, begging for his life.
No rescue could take him because he had no adopter and was heartworm positive. That's a huge financial commitment for a rescue, so a bunch of people donated money to cover his medical expenses, a foster stepped up to nurture him, and Rockers Rescue stepped up to pull him from the shelter.
Spot was saved!
But now Spot is ready for his forever home. His foster has to give him up by October 21 because she is moving. She never intended to keep him full time; fosters save lives by adopting out and fostering
Spot is on slow kill heartworm treatment and the rescue is committed financially to seeing that through. That would not be your expense as a foster or adopter.
He's up to date on his shots, he is dewormed, and microchipped. He has also been neutered!
His current foster has taught him manners and given him much love and TLC. He's a very sweet and loving boy. He likes car rides, hugs, peanut butter, and playing outside.
Spot is ready for a family to adopt him and love him forever. He wants a yard to play in, a bed to sleep in, someone to pet his silky gray ears, and a family to love.
Spot has been a single dog and it's not clear how he will do with other dogs yet, but that can easily be determined. If you'd like to Rockers Rescue.
This baby has been through enough transitional situations; he needs a permanent, loving home. Please share this with anyone you know who would be a fabulous human for Spot.
There is someone out there who is exactly the right match for this sweet boy.
