Amarillo is a little guy with so much love to give. We are just getting to know him but so far we know he loves to jump, chase toys, follow his people around and cuddle. He lays quietly in my lap while I work, or will play with a toy nearby. He does not like to be left alone and will bark when crated or penned alone. He does not have accidents in the crate and is not destructive while in there. He will quiet down after a while but would not be good in an apartment or other shared wall living situations. In his foster home in Texas he met and did well with other small dogs. We have bigger dogs that prefer their space so aren't allowing close interactions with them at this time. He hasn't had accidents in the home since his first day as he got used to a whole new home and routine. We do give him frequent potty breaks and he stays tethered to me when he is not crated or in a pen, so he doesn't have a lot of freedom to get into trouble. He is very sweet and goofy and just needs a family to show him love. 

Since Amarillo is heartworm positive he will need to be treated in at our clinic in St Cloud.

Heartworm treatment consists of 3 injections. The first injection will be in roughly 30 days after coming into rescue. The the 2nd and 3rd injections happen 30 days after that. When a dog is going through heartworm treatment, they should be on "restrictions", meaning a lot of lap time, crate time and always on a leash. Heartworm disease is NOT contagious, it is transported via mosquitos.  

Here is a great article explaining what heartworm is and how it's treated: https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics

An adoption application is the first step in the foster to adopt program.
