About Hershey

Pit Bull / Lab
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

My family is fostering a lovely dog from Orange County Animal Services. His name is Hershey and he's 4-5 years old. He's a lab/pitt mix, 60 lbs, neutered, micro chipped, house trained, walks well on a leash, knows basic commands, doesn't bark or jump, crate trained, and LOVES kids. The only downside to Hershey is that he chases cats! We have a cat, so our home probably isn't the best for Hershey. He does have heartworms but is being treated through the Orange Co Animal Services program. I also took him to our vet and had him examined and everyone expects him to recover with no issues. If you have been thinking about adopting a dog, but don't want to deal with raising a puppy, Hershey could be your guy! He is so amazing. He's calm, gentle, loves to snuggle, loves to play catch, and just needs a family to love him. His heartworm treatment is scheduled for 1/22/2017 and if we don't find him a new foster by then, he has to go back to Orange County Animal Services. He will need to stay there for 2 days for his treatment and then after he can be officially adopted. Additionally, after his treatment on 1/22, he has to be on limited exercise, meaning short bathroom leash walks only for 4-6 weeks, and then moderate exercise after that, no running, dog parks, etc, for another few weeks. Please feel free to share this email widely. I am completely open to having people over or taking Hershey to meet with potential adopters.
