Description:
Age: 1 year, 4 months (as of 06/26/21) Weight: 46 lbs (as of 07/06/21)    This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped.   Pete is a good boy! He is also affectionate and even-tempered. We are thinking this handsome dude is a Hound and Mountain Cur mix about 1 ½ years-old. If you aren’t familiar with Mountain Cur’s they are a hunting breed primarily found in the south. He is friendly with other dogs and while he doesn’t live with cats tends to ignore the ones he has met. Pete would make a great addition to a household as the only dog or as a new buddy to other family dogs. As for us humans he loves all of us but we don’t yet know how he is with kids. Pete has been living in an outdoor kennel and is not yet house trained or leash trained, but we think with a confident and patient adopter he will pick up these skills quickly as he seems very smart. He is calm in a crate and is a pretty quiet boy but he may bark to get your attention. A fenced yard would be ideal so he can run and play safely, but if that's not available he will need lots of leash walks and opportunities for off-leash play in a fenced area. We recommend that you and Pete sign up for some dog training classes together, ideally in the first 45 days or so of bringing him home. Group training classes are a great way to reinforce important skills, learn some new comands, and get some quality socialization time with other furry friends. Pete is a warmhearted boy who just wants a loving forever home. Can you make his dream come true? Fill out an application today and let him know that you'd love to have him join your family! Pete’s Story: He was abandoned with his littermate Delmer (adopted earlier this year on SOS) at a cattle farm in the south. Pete stayed in the south due to his Heartworm diagnosis and subsequent treatment. He is doing great and can’t wait to be your new best friend! Medical Note: This dog has been treated for heartworm disease with melarsomine injections. Once treatment is completed and the dog tests negative for microfilaria, the dog will be cleared to resume normal activity and able to be adopted. Untreated heartworm disease can cause lasting damage to the heart, lungs and arteries, and can affect the dog’s health and quality of life even after the parasites are gone, possibly presenting as medical complications and/or new conditions in the future. This dog showed no symptoms of heartworm disease before or during treatment. A good resource for more information on heartworm disease is: https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics. Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor.   Adoption Fee: $585 To apply for this dog, fill out an adoption application on our website: www.sosarl.org/aa/ **Additional info you should know - For most of our dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our dogs as an individual and do our best to describe and place them based on personality not breed label. Some dogs may not yet be in New England, nor ready for immediate adoption. There may be additional vetting, quarantine, waiting periods and/or fees depending upon your state of residence. If you have questions or concerns on any of this, you can discuss this with your Adoption Counselor.
