Hill is one of those dogs. You know the kind...the ones that no one wants. Black dogs are so often over looked. Especially black dogs that are heartworm positive. He had been released to be euthanized. He had been walked down to the 'room'. The room of death. A dog knows. He knows that smell. The smell of death. He had a window of 5 minutes of living or dying. I picked for him to live. I held him and he looked at me. He looked me right in the eye and he had me. He had my heart. He's heartworm positive but don't let that scare you. It's non-contagious and it's is easy to treat and covered by SAPA. In only 2 months he will be cured. While he's under going treatment he needs low activity level. Hill wants a family that will keep him inside to snuggle on the sofa with and have his own doggie bed with his own toys. Needs to go on walks and be loved on. He's never been spoiled and I want that for him. So if you think this baby will fit into your family please email me. You have my word that you will not be disappointed. Once you look into his eyes you will instantly fall in love with him.
