John's a very sweet dog. He is definitely a people "person". He's loving and friendly to all. He's active, around 2 years young, weighs around 50 lbs and is healthy but for a case of heartworms which we'll pay to treat. A home with older kids or adults only would be best for John.
Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from John. They are curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. John is taking a monthly pill (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows he's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.
