My name is Ferguson. I am a smaller medium sized reddish buff cocker spaniel boy about 3 to 4 years old with just a hint of mix in me. I came to rescue with 2 other cocker boys thought to be my brothers from a local shelter. All 3 of us were together alone and running around loose until we got picked up as strays by NC Animal Control. When no owner came looking for us the staff asked for rescue help because all 3 of us tested as strong heartworm positive.
Besides being heartworm positive and needing treatment, the vet found that my needs had been neglected as I was badly matted, filthy dirty, I had skin issues and an ear infection. I was also covered with ticks and fleas and I had hooks and whipworms. These issues have been treated and I have had my heartworm treatment and a good recovery. When I was picked up at the vet on my initial visit, these folks noticed that I was having problems walking. Turns out, I had a slight neck issue that required medicine. I recovered well. A few days after that, all 3 of us developed a horrible case of respiratory infection. We all took a few medicines to get well. I have had a dental and I got neutered. It seems that someone must have loved me because I am gentle and very loving. I am a sweet boy and I dearly crave human attention and love. I hope to be adopted to a new home with someone who can also adopt Riley, my red n white sidekick buddy (you can read his bio). We are very bonded and he needs me to be with him. Riley has eye issues known as Progressive Retinal Atrophy. He really needs me to stay with him as his seeing companion because nothing can be done to help him and he will eventually be totally blind. The vet recommended that these rescue folks adopt us out as a pair to make going to a new home an easier transition for Riley.
,My adoption fee is: $350.
Riley's adoption fee is: $350.
If you are interested in adopting both of us, please send an email message to: email@example.com for an adoption application.
