Slinky is a male Cur mix found as a stray on Fishing Ford Road. He is brindle and white in color and is on the thin side. We have him on a regular feeding schedule to help him gain weight safely and he is already up 10 pounds. He is now fully vetted, microchipped, but is heartworm positive. The volunteer fund will completely cover the cost of his heartworm treatment over the next 6 months and any meds will go with him. He is a bit on the timid side, but appears friendly to everyone. He is highly food and treat motivated. According to the vet he is 6 years old.

Approved rescues may pull a dog and have vetted at their own expense once available to the public
