Hey everyone! My name is Oriole. I came from Texas originally. 

A little bit about me...I am heartworm positive, but don’t let that deter you! I will be completely healthy again very soon. I was a frequent flyer at the shelter in Texas and stayed there several times, each time my family would come pick me up after my stray hold was up and then I would return. The last time I came my family didnt come back to pick me up, I was so sad and lonely until a very nice person scooped me up. I am an older gentleman but very sweet. At the shelter I was good with both people and other dogs. At first i'm a little scared (who wouldnt be) but I warmed up quick with a little love. I would love to find my new family, one that will take care of me forever, are you it?

Since Oriole is heartworm positive.  He 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.  

Here is a great article explaining what heartworm is and how it's treated: https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics

An adoption application is the first step in the foster to adopt program.
