Mya is an adult female Rottie wannabe, but she topped out at about 35-40 pounds, has a curl to her coat, and her ears are a little wonky. She tried so hard, with her black and tan coloring and her stubby tail. In reality she's like a Lab/Aussie mix, maybe a touch of Shepherd. Mya is a grateful, loving, friendly dog who ran out of time at the pound. She was really a hard luck case because she was also heartworm positive. Luckily she had people who championed her at the shelter and worked to get rescue to take her. She seems to know it, wags with gratitude at every pet, every walk, every soft bed she gets. In fact, all you have to do is talk to her to get that back end wiggling. She's good with kids and other dogs, and has not been with cats. Mya is working on her house training and crates for the workday. She is available early November.
This HHK9 canine has tested positive for a heartworm or tick borne disease and treatment will be done through our vet before an adoption is finalized, so that we can do our part to ensure a healthy happy dog joins your home. Heartworm treatment consists of a 2 day treatment at the vet followed by 4 weeks of restricted activity, and placement timing is on an individual case by case at the comfort level of the foster and adopter. Tick diseases are treated through oral antibiotics sent home with an adopter by the rescue.
