Hey everyone! My name is Tott. I am heartworm positive, but don’t let that deter you! I will be completely healthy again very soon. Since I have heartworm right now, I’m available through the foster to adopt program.
A little bit about me...My Texas owners surrendered me and I am so confused. I had been kept outside my whole life and I am trying to figure out this whole indoor living thing. I crave attention and love. My foster is beginning to think that I didn't get much affection in my past. I do have a bit of energy and am looking for a family that is active and wants me to be a part of their activities. I get along with little children very well and I love them so much. I do well with small dogs too. The bigger dogs tend to intimidate me. Even after everything I have been through I am a pretty outgoing dog and am adjusting quickly to my new environment.
Since Tott is heartworm positive she will need to be treated in at our clinic in St Cloud.
Heartworm treatment consists of 3 injections. The first injection will be in roughly 30 days after coming into rescue. The the 2nd and 3rd injections happen 30 days after that. When a dog is going through heartworm treatment, they should be on "restrictions", meaning a lot of lap time, crate time and always on a leash. Heartworm disease is NOT contagious, it is transported via mosquitos.
