At least that is what I think he is. I found him wandering in our neighborhood with no id, no chip, no collar, no tatoo. He was in the neighborhood for about two weeks and it was obvious that he was not going home to anyone since he was losing weight.
He is a very sweet young dog. I took him to our local Veterinary Hospital to see if he was micro-chipped. He was not. In order to leave him there to kennel, he had to be up to date on shots, etc. I couldn't just take him to our local animal shelter. It is a small county run operation that can only hold dogs for 72 hours and they don't have the staff to do adoptions, etc.
I decided to go ahead and pay for this dog's shots and get him tested for worms. He tested positive for Hookworm and early positive for heartworm. He is now de-wormed for the hook, has all his shots and will be neutered tomorrow. I am currently out of funds so I can't start his heartworm treatment yet.
I would love to adopt him but I don't have a fenced in yard and I am a full time care taker for an elderly parent.
I have been trying to find a home for this sweet dog. He is around a year old. and is a brownish/red and white color. He was obviously abused as he is very shy around unexpected loud noises and raised hands.
He hasn't barked except for once which was a breathy bark and he has only whined a few times. He is very quiet and every time he sees me when I come to visit, he runs to me and wants to cuddle.
We are calling him BeeGee and my avatar is a pic of him. I found this forum and joined so I could see if there are any rescue groups near me. I will be posting more in the rescue forum.
I have fallen hook, line and sinker for this fellow and want him to find a great home.
I have sent a message to the BRAT email and am waiting for a reply from them, but found the forum and thought that this might be another place to tell others about this sweet one year old and see if there is anyone near me who can help or who would like to give this fellow a good home.
Oh yes, I live in the southeastern part of North Carolina in Bladen County.
