Farmer (his foster mom calls his Fred), is an adoptable dog with HART. He was found as a stray in Alabama and never reclaimed. He is a very friendly guy and he absolutely loves to play with other dogs. Within the first 30 minutes of being in his foster home he convinced the 12 year old resident grumpy dog to play chase!
He also passed his behavioral assessment with flying colors, he has a smile for everyone he meets and enjoys playing with toys. Not only does he fetch, he’ll also drop the toy for you to throw it again.
HART was told he tried to chase a cat who was hanging out at the vet’s office, so it is unknown if he would be okay living with cats.
The shelter in Alabama thought he is middle age (around 8) as he has a bit of grey on his muzzle, but he acts like a younger dog so his true age is anyone’s guess. He has a beautiful shiny black coat and a real zest for life. He is medium size at #53.
His canines are worn down as though he spent a lot of time cooped up in a cage chewing on the bars. His new family needs to have time to exercise him properly so that he no longer languishes in a crate. He does sleep in a crate in his foster home and he does fine.
The Alabama shelter told HART he tested positive for heartworm but he underwent TWO additionally tests with HART’s vet and tested negative each time.
