LHS Resident Since: 12/15/10 Weight: 44 pounds Skylar was found running stray in Hillsdale County, then brought here to be placed up for adoption. We quickly figured out that Skylar was both pregnant AND heartworm positive. The treatment for Heartworm Disease is very expensive and takes about 4 to 6 weeks to complete. Skylar was able to have her pups and care for them without distress, and we received enough monetary donations to treat Skylar’s heartworms! Her treatment has been started and as long as things continue to go well, we should be able to send her to a new home the first week of May. Skylar is housetrained when taken out on a regular schedule, and she interacts well with cats and other dogs. She is a cuddly, timid girl who will be an extremely devoted companion to the family who adopts her. She also walks well on a leash and doesn’t mind rides in the car. Skylar is current on her distemper and kennel cough vaccines. She will be started on monthly heartworm prevention while under our care. Her new owner will be responsible for continuing her monthly heartworm prevention and making sure her vaccines and heartworm test are updated by a veterinarian every year. THANK YOU to all who continue make it possible for us to help animals in need – we couldn’t do it without your help!
