Carter's Story...
Carter is a wonderful boy who had a run of bad luck- He was allowed to get a bad case of heart worms and for a tumor to grow unchecked. But his luck started to change with the volunteers in a high kill shelter in Georgia who saw what a sweet boy he is. Carter has has been treated for heart worms and has had a cancerous tumor completely removed. He is feeling great, enjoying life and is ready for a permanent home. He is about 4 years old and weighs about 55 lbs. Carter's ideal home is one with lots of outside time in a rural or suburban setting with another friendly, well socialized dog and/or cat. His new 'parents' should be calm, patient people who appreciate his need for routine and familiar, stable surroundings. He will repay all kindness with his trust and love. He has medium energy and would be fine with older kids who are respectful and calm. We believe he was treated badly in his early life and will hide when he hears yelling. There is not a mean bone in this boy's body, and he would just love to know that he is safe and loved.

Full vetting and transport up north included in his $375 adoption fee. We cannot be certain what his true mix is.
