Oh little Luigi is a little goofball. He is silly and playful. He is fostered with dogs of all shapes and sizes. He does great, but at times he will try to boss around other dogs for their toys. . He is working on his potty training and making great progress. He is crate and leash trained. He likes a car ride, loves his toys and to play fetch! This boy is eager to please! Luigi is an intelligent and overall is a sweet little dude. Does he sound like a great fit for you ??
Luigi weighs 10 lbs and is from Texas.
One big thing you should know is they are heartworm positive - but please don’t let that scare you away from adopting them! After they undergo treatment for their condition they will be completely healthy again, and heartworm is not a contagious disease.
Because they need treatment, they are available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster to Adopt (FTA) program. Click here to learn more about this program.
They will get heartworm treatment at one of Ruff Start’s partner veterinary clinics in St. Cloud, so their foster will need to be comfortable getting them to and from the appointments. Treatment will consist of three injections: the first will be roughly 30 days after they enter rescue. Then, the second and third injections will happen 30 days after the first. When they are undergoing treatment, they should be on activity ‘restrictions’ which just means they should relax in their crate or cuddle with you. Also, when you go on walks, they should always be kept on a leash so they don’t over-exert themselves! Click here to learn more about heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes.
