Hey everyone! My name is Chaparro. I am heartworm positive, but don’t let that deter you! I will be completely healthy again very soon. Since I have heartworm right now, I’m available through the foster to adopt program.

My name is Chaparro, but people call me Shorty! That is what Chapparo mean in spanish and I answer to it so we just roll with it. I am a super friendly little dude that loves to go on walks, run and play with other dogs, and then cuddle up on the couch and watch TV afterwards. You will win my heart with some booty scratches. I mean, who doesn't like a good butt scratch, am I right?! I am a well mannered gentleman that's pretty low maintenance. I am so close to perfecting the potty training thing and I am trying really hard, I promise! I adjust well to change and I am overall a very happy dog. I am a true explorer and will take off if something catches my eye so I will need to be leashed at all times outdoors and monitored closely in the home and not allowed near open doors.

Since Chapparo 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:

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