More about Trina *Arriving 5/21*

  • Primary Color(s): Black with Tan, Yellow or Fawn
  • Housetrained/Littertrained: Yes
  • Energy Level: Moderate

Trina was found roaming the streets with some pretty significant wounds to her chest and neck, most likely from being attacked by another dog, but she is healing up quite nicely and cannot wait to go to her forever home! She is fully crate and leash trained and loves taking walks to sniff EVERYTHING she comes across. She is mostly potty trained, and has NEVER messed in her crate, but will mark in the house if there are other dogs around. Because of her marking and previous attack, we feel Trina would do best in a home where she is the only dog. Last but not least.. Ms. Trina is a chonk, but there's one thing she loves more than food... attention. She will put her little paws on your leg to remind you she's still there if you stop petting her!

Trina weighs 31 lbs and is a stray from Texas. She will arrive in Minnesota on 5/21 and will need to be picked up from the Ruff Start Rescue office in Princeton, MN. 

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

Because she needs treatment, She is available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster to Adopt (FTA) program. Click here to learn more about this program.

She will get heartworm treatment at one of Ruff Start’s partner veterinary clinics in St. Cloud, so her foster will need to be comfortable getting her to and from the appointments. Treatment will consist of three injections: the first will be roughly 30 days after she enters rescue. Then, the second and third injections will happen 30 days after the first. While she is undergoing treatment, she should be on activity ‘restrictions’ which just means she should relax in her crate or cuddle with you.   Click here to learn more about heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes.
