Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat)
Weight: 47 lbs
Estimated Birthdate: 2/16/2013
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Date into rescue: 2/21/2018
Reason for being in rescue? Owner release to nc shelter. Nathan was part of a hoarding case.
Special Needs? This dog is lightly heartworm positive (HW+). He will be sent home with a year supply of heartworm medication. He is being treated with a method called the slow kill treatment. He takes a monthly Ivermectin based heartworm preventative and needs to be re-tested for heartworms every 6 months. Once he tests negative, then he can take any kind of heartworm preventative; he is not restricted to Ivermectin based only.
What kind of home would be best for me? We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner. Nathan is a good boy who needs someone to continue to teach him basic manners. He can be aggressive toward small dogs; given this his ideal home has a larger dog or is one where Nathan will be the only dog.
What is my personality like? Nathan landed in a South Carolina shelter as part of a hoarding case. He grew up in a home with lots of dogs and, as such, is comfortable in a pack. Overall he is a sweet boy who is learning what it is like to be part of a healthy routine. Nathan will walk on a leash, but you have to force the issue. Leashes are likely a newer experience for him and he is learning. Nathan is very treat motivated so that helps with training. While Nathan has grown up around other dogs, he can be aggressive toward smaller dogs. We have observed this behavior most commonly when he is aggravated. Given this, he would be best in a home with a bigger dog or as the only dog.
How do I act when I meet new people? Curious
Tips and Tidbits: Nathan does have skin issues that are likely related to chronic allergies. He is allergic to fleas and we are currently evaluating diet to determine other potential allergies. His skin is improving.
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
