McGee was a rescued sheltie that came to Austin Sheltie Rescue as a stray. He was found in Georgetown, wandering down IH 35 with wire tangled in his coat. McGee had heartworms and probably many other unknown problems. He was such a sweet and gentle fellow and it was hard to imagine that no one had cared enough to take care of him. McGee started the heartworm treatment and was on his way to good health and a happy foster home. But his body couldn’t stand up to everything going on and after a week he let us know it was time to cross. He knew love those last 2 weeks, and I pray that ours wasn’t the only love he knew in his life. Run Free McGee, you were loved.
Tragically, sweet McGee died from a very preventable disease. Please give your dogs their monthly heartworm preventive for their continued good health and to honor McGee’s memory.
