AUGUSTUS (GUS) Senior Male ADOPTED! April 2017

Gus was found as a stray and no one claimed him. It may be because he was a senior boy who was heart worm positive and had some bad skin issues. Maybe his people just couldn’t afford to take care of him. An all-breed rescue group took him under their wings, got him brought up to date on vaccines, cleaned up, and started him on Doxycycline in preparation for him to be treated for his heart worm infection. We are so thankful for them! Then they contacted ARG. We are happy to take over the care of this sweet, gentle man-Dale, and see to it that he lives the rest of his life in comfort with the love of a family. He loves everyone he meets, but not small dogs or cats.

Gus is recuperating from being on his own and is taking antibiotics for his skin issues (which we’re confident can be cured). He will need to be treated for heart worms and ARG will, of course, pay for that, regardless of where he lives.

Can you open your home and your heart to this senior boy?
