Clay was a stray and even though his pictures showed up all over Facebook, his family never came looking for him at the shelter. He is about 10 or 11, up to date on all vaccination, neutered and micro-chipped. His heartworm test came back as high positive. He also has a cough that was caused by the heartworms so we will be extra careful with him as we take him thru treatment. Clay is a sweet, friendly sheltie that stands about 16 inches tall and weighs about 36 pounds, he could lose a few pounds. The night he was rescued he gave his rescuer a great big smile letting her know how much he appreciated the safety of her house and the chance at a much better future.
Unfortunately, Clay passed away due to complications of heartworm disease after he had been treated and found his forever home. The damage that the heartworms had done was too much for his lungs and heart to handle. Don’t let this happen to your dogs. Please protect your dogs and give them monthly heartworm prevention and test yearly.
