Adoption Fee: $150
Australian Shepherd mix
Age: Adult

Despite the crap hand he has been dealt, Granite is one of the sweetest dudes. All he wanted was love. That's it. Well and the treats...treats are serious business according to the bottom picture, LOL. Granite is heavy heartworm positive. Totally preventable. But instead of investing in a $10 to $15 a month pill, his former owners let him get heartworms. And then he was dumped instead of being treated. Fluid retention has set in. He was not tested with other animals due to his medical condition. Granite needs a foster, or adopter, to house him while he is treated (on our dime of course) Can anyone open their home to this love bug? 8/19/19 (Other)- Granite is a male Australian Shepherd/pit mix.
