Boogie is an energetic, fun teenage dog. Boogie came to us, all the way from New Orleans. Boogie was recently treated for heartworm disease, and will need a special adopter who can help him heal from this illness. Dogs healing from heartworm treatment need cage rest, and a very low impact lifestyle for the next 3 to 6 months while he recuperates. This may be challenging as Boogie is very active, wants to be the life of the party. The vet staff notes some permanent heart/lung damage may be present which could require ongoing care at private vet in future. Very much the teenage dog, he needs some work on manners, and impulse control.
