Meet, Repo.  She is 8 years old and was surrendered to a local shelter because her family was moving and could not take her with them.  She has lived with children, an older male boxer, and cats. 

Repo is an absolute delight and simply gorgeous.  She has quite the love of life and would be a great dog for a family who enjoys taking long walks and spending time outdoors.  She pulls a tiny bit on the leash, but that can be corrected with a front pull harness and some practice.  Repo is not a jumpy, “in your face” kind of girl.   She was happy to be petted all over and content to just relax and enjoy the beautiful park we were walking in. She encountered people, ducks, another dog, and a woodchuck while were exploring and the only one that seemed to catch her attention was the woodchuck.  She wanted to see where it went and how it got there.  She was curious, but not in a bad way.   She met a female cocker spaniel while on leash and was excited to get over to her.  She needs work on not being so forward with her meet and greets, but she didn’t want to harm the other dog.  We’re not sure if she was bred in the past, but it does look like she was.  This girl is a gem of a dog and deserves to be spoiled and loved forever. 


Repo has been diagnosed with Heartworm Disease.  Once we secure a foster home for this BEAUTIFUL girl, we will be bringing her to our vet to see exactly what stage she is in and will be giving her the treatments she needs to recover.  She is currently not spay, but we plan to do so after she has recovered from the Heartworm treatments. 





Medical Hold
Canine Heartworm
Heartworm is a serious and potentially fatal disease in canines.  Heartworms are a parasitic worm (about the size of thin spaghetti) and normally live free floating in the right ventricle of the heart and nearby blood vessels.  Heartworms are contagious, but not directly from an infected dog to another dog. In all cases, baby heartworms must be transferred to a mosquito, and then injected into the next dog (or back into the same dog) by the mosquito, before they can grow into adults. So dogs acquire heartworms from being bitten by a mosquito who is carrying heartworms from an infected dog.The average lifespan of heartworms in untreated canines is 5-7 years; virtually 100% of dogs exposed to infective heartworm larvae become infected.  
 The American Heartworm Society (AHS) estimates that only 55% of dogs in the U.S. are currently on a heartworm preventive, leaving 27 million dogs at risk of acquiring this horrible disease.  In the USA, veterinarians recommend Heartworm prevention for dogs.  Please see your local veterinarian to have your pet tested and put on preventatives yearly.
