Please contact Mari Wolfe ( for more information about this pet.make sweet music with this pretty girl! MELODY NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Melody      Best Guess for Breed:  Shepherd mix   Best Guess for Age:  4-5 years as of July 2021    SEX:  Female   Approximate Weight:  42 lbs   Gets Along With: Melody has done well with other dogs in the shelter. We haven't seen her with kids or cats but she can be tested.    Currently Living at:  Shelter   Special adoption considerations: Melody is heartworm positive. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative. Heartworm dogs can resume full active and normal lives, but need to be kept calm for 4-6 weeks after treatment.  Melody is scheduled to have treatment as soon as possible so the recovery process can begin.  We are happy to talk more in depth about heartworm disease and treatment during the screening process.    Melody is Looking For:  Her forever family! This sweet girl, through no fault at all of her own, now needs a new home. Once she has recovered from heartworm treatment, she will be your eager companion on long sniffy walks, romps in the park, and all the adventures you can dream up! She is out of the puppy yips so you get an experienced, loving dog! What do you say? Are you ready to wake up every morning for years to come and see her adoring gaze fixed on you? Is she the one you'll watch lovingly as she curls up and sighs at the end of each day, content in the knowledge she is safe and loved for all her days?   What My Foster Says About Me: We will update this once she has arrived in the DC area and spent some time with her foster   Lucky Dog cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken.  All of our dogs are working on their crate training.  TO ADOPT:  The adoption fee for this dog is $475, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.  If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online HERE .   Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption.
