Pearl was born around July 2014 and weighs about 70 lbs. Update: 7/28/17 - Pearl has met a couple of families with children and the sounds and activity of the small kids made Pearl retreat so we're adding a "no young kids" flag to her adoption file. Pearl wouldn't hurt a flea - this will just ensure she goes to a home where she can be more relaxed. :)
Pearl has heartworms but we will see her through this. Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from her. They're 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. Pearl is taking a monthly pill (which we'll pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows she'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.
