Hi there, friend! I’m Pancake and I’m an adoptable pooch through Ruff Start Rescue. 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. I am a little skittish at first and would do best in a home without children. I don't hide from people but I am not really one to seek affection. That may change though if I go to a house without so many dogs!  I think I would be happier in a home by himself but would be ok with other more submissive dogs. I dislike unaltered male dogs at first but do okay if they are submissive and I have to get used to them. I do fine with all female dogs and altered males. I have a dominant personality with male dogs so a more submissive dog or a dog that ignores me would be best.  I know “go to your room” and will jump right into my kennel! In the right home, I will continue to grow and blossom.

Because I need treatment, I am available only 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 get 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 comprise 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 relax in my crate or cuddle with you. Also, when we go on walks, I should always be kept on a leash so I don’t over-exert myself!
