Find your perfect pet with Pet Alert!

Name: Charm
ID: 48848663
Breed: German Shepherd / Mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 11 years 1 month
Size: Large
Location: Awaiting Foster
Foster Type: Healing and Comfort

Foster Reason: I am heartworm positive and going through heartworm treatment. I am currently taking daily medications. I will need to come back to the shelter for my first injection on 12/15. I will need to be on exercise restriction, this means being a couch potato and going outside for bathroom breaks only. I also have joint disease, so I will need a relaxing home without a ton of stairs so I can get around safely. My foster should be comfortable monitoring my mobility and pain levels to communicate to the medical team.

About Me: I was found roaming the streets all by myself, so not much is known about my past. I am an old man who loves to take long naps and eat great snacks! I'd love to find a home to relax in this Fall.

Medical Schedule: I will need to come back to the SPCA of Texas mid December and then again mid November for heartworm treatment.

Foster Commitment: I am needing a foster for at least three months, until I am finished with my heartworm treatment. Ideally until I am adopted.

Foster Home Requirements: I am not to picky about my home, I will need a home that is calm as I will be on exercise restriction. I can live in an apartment, but would prefer no stairs due to my hip disease.

Special Note: While I am not yet eligible for adoption, I am eligible for foster-to-adopt.
