Hi there! My name is Goblin! I'm a super sweet buddy, who is a little on the shy side. I'm still coming out of my shell, so I'm looking for a quieter home to settle into and patient people to show me love.

While I really like people, I can get a little nervous. Sit next to me calmly and give me slow, gentle pets and I'll melt into you. Quick movements can startle me, but I do want to be loved so badly. While I've been settling in, I've quickly learned to use potty pads perfectly. When I do venture into the great outdoors, I go potty out there as well.

I'm very submissive and will show you my belly when you approach me. If you crouch over and pet me, I do let some urine leak out. This is something that I'm working on, and I think it will get better with time and comfort. Also, know that I had a mass cell tumor removed during my neuter surgery. While that was taken care of, I'll need to be monitored in case it recurs in the future.

I do well with cats and do well with dogs, as long as I'm introduced slowly. Again, I can be a little afraid, so I just need to know that it's safe. I'm very gentle with kids and seem to like being around them. When they get loud and a little rowdy, I get a little freaked out, so I need a safe place to go to.

One big thing about me you should know is that I’m heartworm positive - but please don’t let that scare you away from adopting me! After I undergo treatment for my condition I will be completely healthy again, and heartworm is not a contagious disease.

Because I need treatment, I am available exclusively through Ruff Start’s foster-to-adopt program. You can learn more about that program by visiting www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/fostering-to-adopt-available-animals/ .

I will be getting my heartworm treatment at one of Ruff Start’s partner veterinary clinics in St. Cloud, so my foster will need to be comfortable getting me there for my appointments. My treatment will consist of three injections: the first will be roughly 30 days after I enter rescue. Then, the second and third injections will happen 30 days after the first.

When I am undergoing my treatment, I should be on ‘restrictions’, which just means I should spend time relaxing in my crate or cuddling with you. Also, when we go on walks, I should always be kept on a leash so I don’t over-exert myself!
