Pet name:
Coat length:
Micco is a young (born 11.26.21) neutered male Akita. He is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, on flea/heartworm prevention, heartworm negative, house trained, crate trained, and leash trained. 

Micco found himself at Baltimore County Animal Shelter after his owner surrendered him for potential spinal surgery which they could not afford.

After being medically evaluated by our awesome veterinarian, it was found that Micco has some atrophy in one of his back legs which will improve with activity. He does not have any spinal abnormalities that will need surgical intervention. His growth plates have not completely fused yet, but that will get better as he matures. He does have a UTI and Giardia which is currently being treated. Micco is a very happy kid and we are so happy that he is healthier than what we originally had thought! He may do well in a home as an only pet or with the right female.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
