8/22/17 AVAILABLE AROUND THANKSGIVING PENDING COMPLETION OF MEDICAL TREATMENT - Pungo is a beautiful, friendly male GSD. He is socializing nicely with other dogs - both small and large, respectful of cats, and good with kids (although he did want to lick the crumbs off the face of my neighbor's toddler). He's quietly confident and a pleasure to have around. He came to VGSR when his elderly owner was no longer able to care for him. He's a little underweight right now, so his long lanky frame make him look like a 'wolf', but he's such a gentleman that he can eat right next to his foster sisters without any issues! Pungo is being actively treated for heartworms, so he can't yet go to his forever home. Current estimates from the vet are that he'll be in great shape in about 3 months (around Thanksgiving). Take a peek at his 'Good Boy' manners at his recent vet visit. We will keep you posted on his progress!
9/22/17 Pungo has successfully completed the first of a series of 3 treatments for heartworms. He did great, but has to keep quiet until his treatments are all done. His prognosis is still very good!
