In shelter Dog

Alvin, TX, 77512
Pet name:
Yellow / Tan / Blond / Fawn
Coat length:
Adam made his way to PugHearts along with 4 other dogs from The Rio Grande Valley on the same weekend. When our volunteers first picked up Adam it was evident that he’d been an outside dog for most of his life. He was covered in fleas and had a very dull coat. Once in Houston, Adam made his way to our vet where it was discovered that Adam is strong-direct heartworm positive. Thankfully he has no scarring in the heart or lungs and has not coughed even once while in foster care. He did great taking his first heartgard and is on 30 days of Doxycycline to begin his heartworm treatment journey. 

Adam was neutered and had his stenotic nares repaired. It has to fun to watch Adam’s personality blossom. He loves sleeping on the couch during the and when it gets too hectic Adam will put himself in the crate and close the door. He growls for everything. When he’s happy, he growls. When he’s annoyed, he growls. When he’s hungry, he growls. When he wants outside, he growls….like I mentioned, it’s for everything. He never acts out or tries to fight, but it’s an important thing to think about if there’s a dog in the home that might be set off by this. 

Adam is 3 years old and has the cutest little body. He is stocky and compact, weighing 15 pounds of pure muscle. We are working on house training, and so far he’s doing way better than expected. Just the occasional marking, but for an outside intact male, that’s pretty good! Adam will need to complete his heartworm treatment prior to adoption, but that can’t stop him from meeting his new family now!
