Heart (also known as Heartthrob, Big Mama and Truffle Pig) is now accepting applications for her furever family! She came to Pet Tales on August 19th underweight and in pretty rough shape (photos of her before at the end). She is being treated for heartworms through the slow kill method as the vet determined that was the safest given her age and she is handling it like the champ she is. Heart physically looks better now than we could’ve imagined! Heart is estimated to be 8-9 years old but don’t let that fool you, she still has so much to give!
She loves licking, it’s probably her favorite thing in the world. She still has the occasional accident in the house, but is otherwise potty trained (I think this has a lot to do with living outside her whole life and just being able to go to the bathroom wherever whenever.)
She loves spending her days with people curled up on the couch or in bed, she is a terrific snuggler and really just wants someone to be around and to love!

She is dog selective so she would do best as the only dog in the home or with low energy male senior dogs. Ideally her new home wouldn’t have to crate her for long periods at a time – she isn’t a fan of being crated considering her history and is only crated now for a max of 4 hours.
She rarely barks (even when her foster brothers are) and loves playing with her green squeaky ball.
We are SO excited to see this senior finally get the forever home she deserves after being treated so poorly, living her life outside, and then being discarded in her senior years.
She is a senior so older children are the best fit for her energy level.
