Update March 12, 2015 No longer needs rescue
She was immediately taken to a local vet, where she was examined and scanned for a microchip. Unfortunately, she’s heartworm positive, and also has special issues on the type of family needed.
The vet believes she’s only around two to three years old. She doesn’t like small dogs but gets along with larger dogs. She’s good on a leash and doesn’t appear to have any cat issues.
A home is needed with no loud noises or loud children, as she becomes frightened and barks or hides. An experienced handler will help her thrive. The person who found her will help with the heartworm treatment, so don’t let that scare you from adopting this beauty.
