Parker is a handsome boy. He is a Boxer-mix and has a short brown and white coat. He is about 2 years old. During his medical exam, it was discovered that Parker had heart worm. He has been treated and came through the initial procedure with flying colors. He will have to be kept relatively quiet until he has his follow-up exam. He can walk on a leash, but running, jumping, and playing can cause complications and are forbidden until the vet thinks he is ready.
The adoption fee covers the spay/neuter surgery, a 1-year rabies shot, a da2ppv shot (canine distemper/parvo vaccine), heartworm test, deworming and microchip.
