Ernie is a super sweet natured dog who came from the pound in terrible condition. He was very underweight, terrible teeth with infected root fragments, poor muscle mass, poor skin with little hair cover and is also heartworm positive. We have started the medical work and he is looking for a committed owner who can get him into good condition and manage him through the heartworm treatment which takes some 2 months. Ernie has found a foster home where he is being cared for very well. He is very friendly with people, eats well and currently is being left a couple of hours some days. His exercise is still being restricted due to heartworm treatment that should be completed mid Jan 22. He walks on loose lead and is very affectionate. DoggieRescue is committed to seeing his veterinary treatment through. He has a short coat and currently weighs around 30.0kg.
