Deuce has completed his heartworm treatment and recently arrived at his new foster home in Maryland. He is in foster with a female boxer, cats, and young children (ages 3 and 5). Deuce is wonderful with the kids and pays no attention to the cats. He travels like a dream and made a trip to North Carolina with his foster family. He stayed in a beach house with 6 kids and 12 adults – everyone quickly fell in love with him. Deuce is an exceptional dog who is going to make a family very happy.
Deuce was surrendered to the shelter when his owners decided they did not have time for him because their children were going back to school. He is 4 years old and reported to be good with children and other dogs. When Deuce was taken to the shelter’s vet, we discovered that he was heartworm positive. Deuce will be remaining at his temporary foster placement in West Virginia while he goes through the treatment. Deuce is getting along well with everyone, including the cats and other dogs. He has been very gentle with even the foster kittens. Deuce’s foster indicated he is a sweet and easygoing boy. He will be starting his treatment in a few weeks.
