We found him running the streets in Southwest Fort Worth and have had him in our care for exactly one month. The only vetting we did was to update him on shots … in case his owner did show up to claim him. We posted him everywhere we could think of and to no avail.
Not one single call, no emails – nothing.
He is being neutered tomorrow so we asked our vet to test him for heartworms – the BAD news is that he is heartworm positive. Perhaps that is why someone threw him away and dumped him in a nice neighborhood. Heartworm treatment is very expensive (especially for an almost 50 lb. boy) – it looks like it will be in the range of $500 (or more).
Can you help this sick boy? He deserves a chance at a long healthy life.
