Name: Sox

Gender: Neutered Male

Size: Medium
Location: Awaiting Foster
Pick-Up Location: Dallas

About Me: My name is Sox, and my friends rescued me from a cruelty case earlier this year. I am a loving, energetic pup that LOVES all treats, but I think I'll love you even more - I can't wait to meet you!

Foster Home: My ideal home would be calm and relaxing while I am undergoing heartworm treatment. Other then that I'm not too picky, but lots of treats would be a bonus!

Dogs: I like other dogs, but I want them to be my size or bigger.

Foster Reason: I am going to start heartworm treatment in January, so I will need a nice calm home to hang out in while I undergo treatment! I am also on an exercise restriction of short leash walks only and no running around for this guy. My foster should be available to bring me to the shelter periodically for my appointments and they should be comfortable giving oral medication if needed.

Foster Length: About two months until I finish my heartworm treatment.

SPECIAL NOTE: While I am not yet ready for adoption, I am eligible for foster-to-adopt.
