Braveheart was taken to the vet immediately where further examination revealed the growth to possibly be an overgrown/out of control abscess. His foster mom kept him comfortable while he gained some weight and ultimately the growth was removed and found to be non-cancerous!
Now Braveheart is a healthy, happy boy who is ready for a place to call home. He's 3-4 years old and weighs approximately 50-55lbs. He loves to play with other dogs (video link: https://www.facebook.com/ForgottenDogs5/videos/869040086510271/) and is really a cool dude. He aims to please and is a happy-go-lucky kind of fella! Does this sound like the kind of companion you are looking for? If so, Braveheart is your man!
For more information, or to adopt Braveheart, please contact his foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org (be sure to mention you are interested in Braveheart!) or fill out an adoption application on our website - http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/ - Thanks!!
