Homer's former owner was caught living illegally at a camp site. When told to move, the person simply left Homer and another dog behind.
Homer is a very people friendly dog and has a lot of energy. While he can be playful with other dogs, the introduction to other dogs needs to be done with patience. Homer loves to play fetch and loves affection. He would do best in a home without small children due to his high energy level.
Homer did test positive for heart worms on 5/20/16 and our vet thought that his level of infection was "light", meaning that Homer could be kept on the "Slow Kill" method of treating heart worms. This method consist of keeping him on a monthly preventative and having him retested every 6 months.
Homer does seem to be in relatively good health otherwise. He is current on all his vaccinations and has been neutered. Once in his new environment Homer will need a refresher course in house breaking. If interested in this wonderful little guy please submit an application to www.socorescue.com.
