Meet Pierce! Pierce was rescued off a chain weighing 27 pounds by a fellow rescuer. Pierce is approx., 3-4 years old and now a healthy 55- 60 pounds thanks to his foster family. Pierce not only suffered chained, he lived with no love or attention in the nastiest place ever laid eyes on by rescuers along with 7 other fur siblings. Pierce unsurprisingly has been tested heart worm positive, but we will be treating this sweet and loving boy. The good news is Pierce shows no clinical signs of heart worms so he will be just fine and will recover! Pierce in spite of his circumstances is friendly to all people. Its like he is seeing things for the first time off the chain and acts very puppy like naturally. He has a healthy curiosity. He is still learning leash manners and not to jump up on people. He would definitely require more work before he could be around small kids, so a family with older teens is best. He likes other dogs but does food garding which is pretty much natural after being starved, so would need to be feed separately from other dogs or be the only boy in the household. He has improved tremendously since his rescue and will require obedience training and a fenced in yard to play in. Medium energy level and seems to be fine with cats. This boy is deserving of a home that will love him and give him the kind of life he has missed out on. Pierce will be fully vetted; neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heart worm treated and treatment to go with family who adopts him. Plus will be microchipped and receive a care package.
