Tyson is about 5 years old. When we saved him from a high kill shelter he was heart worm positive. We had him treated for heart worms, but by the time we saved him and got him to a vet for treatment his heart may have already been damaged by the heart worms. Now Tyson is suffering from right side heart failure, but with medications the vet says he has a shot of living out the rest of his years.
Tyson is an absolutely wonderful boy! He loves people and gets along with other dogs. He’s a lab mix and he’s fully vaccinated and micro-chipped. He’s still active, eating, tail wagging kind of boy !
He’s looking for a loving home and a loving, loyal family who will fall in love with the amazing dog he is. It’s not his fault that whomever owned him before we saved him never gave him heart worm preventative. The vet estimates his monthly medication would cost about $100-120. We’d love to find this wonderful dog an incredible family. He is about 65 lbs.
