Adoption Fee: TBD

Howdy Rowdy! He's an 11.5-year-old boy who was surrendered to a shelter when his owner was moving into assisted living. Those surrenders are especially hard on the heart. Unfortunately, like about every shelter in the south, they were at max capacity and he needed out ASAP.  We're thankful they reached out and we had someone who was willing to give him a soft landing. He's a big boy at 73 lbs. and literally has a teddy bear face on an actual bear body. Sadly, he came to the shelter with Heartworms and his gorgeous coat has been shaved so many times, with just the fuzzy undercoat left forever and thick mats down to the skin. 

Besides that, he was so stressed out in the new environment and on any car ride. We hope to help make that less scary. We'll help him lean up a bit and of course do what we can safely do to get rid of the Heartworms. A vet visit for a thorough exam, bloodwork, and a dental is in his future, but we're letting him settle a bit first. He's a sweet old lug who just wants to be near his person. We hope he continues to get more comfortable and knows he's safe and loved.
