Special Needs?This dog is lightly heartworm positive (HW+). He will be sent home with a year supply of heartworm medication. He is currently 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. Please contact your
What kind of home would be best for me? We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away.
What is my personality like? Felix was found as a stray in NC and taken to a animal shelter where CPR decided to take him in. When first meeting him he is very interested but still a little nervous. He warms up quickly with treats and a little baby talk! He loves to be active and to play but right now he should be restricted to low activity until his heart worm treatment is finished. Once he is acclimated to you, there is nothing he loves more than your attention. He can run around and play with the best of them but at the end of the day he wants to be curled up next to his human.
How do I act when I meet new people? Shy, but sweet.
Tips and Tidbits:
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.
