Barlow is a special little guy! He is looking for a foster to adopt home so he can get settled in a forever home, but will also have support throughout the remainder of his heartworm treatment. K9 Kindness will continue to cover his medical costs throughout the process.
After his initial immiticide injection, Barlow experienced labored breathing, pneumonia, and complications. He was deemed high risk for pulmonary embolism so the cardiologist recommended heart medications and that we switch to slow kill method. He has had multiple applications and is doing really well.
Barlow needs a calmer home with limited activity for the remainder of treatment. He needs someone devoted to him and we would prefer he is an only. He is tempted to play too much with other dogs and cats in the home. It is so sad that he can’t, but his low activity is crucial for his chance of a full recovery. He will go explore and say hi to the neighbors so a fence is a must for him.
Barlow is house trained and crate trained. He is not much of a barker, only when he hears another dog barking, and sometimes a horn on TV. He is good on a leash and an all around great little companion! He loves to offer his paw for pets and when he wants something from his foster parents.
We do not know what damage those dreaded worms have already caused his heart and lungs or if it will be permanent. We do know he deserves a loving forever home who will never neglect him again.
Barlow is neutered, up to date on shots and prevention and is microchipped. Adopter’s must live within the Quad Cities so he can continue his care. All pets currently in the home must be routinely kept up to date on shots, prevention and fixed to be approved for adoption.
Barlow adoption fee is $250 (after treatment is complete). To meet him, please submit an application at https://www.k9kindnessrescue.org/adopt/application/. As a reminder, we are not a shelter location and require a scheduled meet and greet.
FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an
