Watch out, squeaky toys! Sarge is coming through! This two-year-old Rottweiler mix is still a child at heart and delights in romping around the toy bin. Sarge came back to the Kentucky Humane Society when he mistook the cats at home for - you guessed it - toys. Understandably, he is looking for a feline-free home now. But that doesn't stop this social butterfly from trying to make new friends! One thing you should know about Sarge is he tested positive for heartworms when he first arrived at KHS, so we gave him some medicine to get rid of the adult worms. He just needs a family willing to bring him back once a month for a few more doses until he is fully negative. KHS will provide the medicine; you just need to give Sarge the love of a family! What are you waiting for? Come take this goofy giant home! Sarge is micro-chipped, neutered and up-to-date on his shots.
This dog has been diagnosed as heartworm positive (HW+) and is undergoing treatment. While under treatment, there are certain exercise restrictions as well as a requirement to return to the shelter for further treatments until the dog is heartworm-free. An adoption counselor will be happy to explain the process of adopting and more about the parasite that causes heartworms. Due to the need to return for monthly treatment after taking a HW+ dog home, the adopter must live in one of the following counties to be approved for adoption: Jefferson, Bullitt, Spencer, Henry, Trimble, and Shelby counties.
I came to the Kentucky Humane Society from another shelter. The staff are still learning all about me. I miss being in a home and have a lot of love to give.
