antibiotics clear them up in no time. He likes to run and play in the yard

couch potato. If you are looking for a super sweet dog to curl up on
the couch with - Dallas is your man. Please consider giving this sweet boy a

wanted to send all his generous supporters big boxer kisses for their
donations, prayers and good thoughts. Our Dallas is a strong boy and is
doing well considering all he has been through. He recently had his staples
and drains removed from his incisions and received the approval from the
cardiologist to start the immiticide treatment to kill the remaining adult
heart worms. He recently had his first injection and so far seems a little
uncomfortable, but is doing well. The next few weeks will be critical
because he needs to stay very calm and quiet to avoid any complications from
the dying heart worms. We will continue to update his page with his

cardiac arrest. They were able to revive him, but he is still in
critical care. Thankfully, he made it through the night and is now off
oxygen. Dallas may have to remain in the critical care unit for another few
days. His surgery was $5400, and he will have additional medical bills

is a sweet boxer boy that needs your help. He has advanced heartworm
disease, causing his cough and respiratory difficulties. His best shot
of recovery is a very expensive surgery to remove the bulk of the
heartworms, which will cost between $3,500 to $4,500. Dallas will die
without this surgery. He has over 30 heartworms surrounding his heart
and has more worms near his liver. If AABR did not pull this boy from a
South Carolina shelter, he would have died.
I am begging for you to please find it in your heart to sponsor this
sweet dog so he can have the surgery and a chance at a long, happy life in a

Dallas was an owner surrender to the shelter because his family could not
afford to take care of him. He is a 4 year old fawn boy that was going
to be pulled by another rescue until they found out he was heartworm
positive. Dallas was out of time at the shelter, so they asked AABR to
help. He is currently being boarded at a vet in
North Carolina while he is waiting for transport up North. Dallas has
a long way to go before he is finally healthy and ready for the loving home
he truly deserves. Please help Dallas by sponsoring or fostering him today!!
