Adoption Fee: $125 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)
Geo was found as a stray by animal control in Hayward. After examination by the shelter’s vet, it was determined that Geo has a grade 3 heart murmur. He was seen by a specialist and diagnosed with mitral valve disease which could eventually lead to congestive heart failure. Geo will need to be on heart medication for the remainder of his life. Life expectancy is hard to tell, probably 2-3 years? He will need moderate exercise (nothing strenuous). He should avoid being outside on really hot days. Estimated annual costs of his treatment is around $600 (medications and 6-month check-ups). Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs is offering to provide financial support for Geo’s vet costs, if needed.
Geo may be a little shy at first, but quickly warms up to people. The shelter approved him for all ages of kids (which is rare), but he needs to not overdue it with strenuous play. He is good with other dogs his size. Not sure about cats.
