Volunteer Notes on Fabio:


A great looking guy that has a red color to his coat-eye catching when light hits him just right.

Fabio is an intense dog and he wants play and exercise that tires him out. He is too cute when he is tiredÂ…he plops down in frog leg position and pants his heart out! He will thrive with an active person or a large yard to run in...why not both?

Fabio shows great interest in other dogs, but sometimes this focus is overwhelming for him. We feel that he would do best as an only dog to start, and with help, he could live happily with a sibling.

`I know the sit command!`

Fabio has tested positive for heartworm disease and needs a rescue or an adoptive family that can have additional diagnostic testing and treatment done by their veterinarian. Heartworm disease is a serious condition that if left untreated can be fatal. However, most dogs can be successfully treated and go on to live long and happy lives! If you are interested in adopting this special pup, Burlington Animal Services recommends that you talk with your veterinarian about treatment options, the care needed during treatment as well as expenses.

My adoption fee is fully sponsored and you can adopt me for NO FEE!
