Basil was found by a caring 9th Ward resident near the Industrial Canal, where he had been dumped along with his friend, Scout. Basil is about 5 years old, 70 pounds, and appears to be a hound or hound mix. Basil is showing signs of hip dysplasia, which we are looking into. He also is being treated for a severe yeast infection, and is, unfortunately, heart worm positive. He will begin heart worm treatment soon. Despite all his misfortune, Basil is absolutely the most loving, sweet dog you'll ever meet! He adores any sort of attention and just wants to be close to you. Basil will make a fabulous friend for any family.
Basil is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, and will go to his new home heart worm free, unless he is adopted during treatment. All 9th Ward dogs go home with full vet records. We are asking for Basil's adoptive family to make a $100 contribution towards Basil's heart worm treatment. Application, home check, and vet reference are required.
Scout was found after being dumped at the Industrial Canal with his friend, Basil. Scout is a truly gorgeous purebred German Shepherd. He is a little timid and shy, but loves people and gets along well with other dogs as well. Scout is about 2-3 years old, and at 65 pounds, he's a bit underweight. Unfortunately, Scout is also heart worm positive. He will begin treatment for that soon. Scout does show some signs of previous abuse that his happy-go-lucky buddy Basil doesn't seem to, so he'll need an especially sensitive family.
Scout is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, and will go to his new home heart worm free, unless he is adopted during treatment. All 9th Ward dogs go home with full vet records. We are asking for Scout's adoptive family to make a $100 contribution towards Scout's heart worm treatment. Application, home check, and vet reference are required.
Bart was found living under abandoned houses in the Florida Area of the 9th Ward, where he had spent the first 5 months of his life. He was severely infested with every sort of parasite: fleas, mites, and intestinal worms. He was also malnourished. He did test heart worm negative, but will need to be rechecked to be 100% sure. Bart has been thoroughly dewormed and is now being treated for a minor case of demodectic mange (non-contagious). He is a very sweet, loving, HAPPY puppy who just wants a family to romp and play with! Bart gets along well with others, both human and canine. Bart is such a fun pup!
Bart will go to his new home neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, and will have any current medications with him (most likely oral liquid Ivermectin for mange). All 9th Ward dogs go home with full vet records. Application, home check, vet reference, and adoption donation of at least $50 are required to adopt Bart.
