Brownie Bite is a sweet little old man looking for a quiet low key household. He is mostly potty trained, and should be completely if he is kept on a regular feeding/potty break schedule. This little guy is pretty low energy and hasn't met a lap he didn't like, but he'll settle for a pillow in a sunspot if there's not a lap available.
Brownie Bite weighs 10 lbs and is from Texas. T hey arrive in Minnesota on 09/10 and will need to be picked up from the Ruff Start Rescue office in Princeton, MN.
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.
