Beau is a sweet & smart Shepherd/Lab mix who is 9 years old and weighs 55 lbs. He is a gentle, calm, affectionate boy with low-medium energy who likes kids, has good leash manners and is currently learning basic commands in his foster home. He would like to be an only dog and he is housebroken, crate trained, neutered, fully vaccinated & microchipped. A home with a fenced yard or possibly a retired couple who likes to walk daily would be ideal. Beau is HW+ so he is currently available for a foster-to-adopt situation until his HW treatment is complete and he is medically cleared for adoption. If you are not familiar with Heartworm disease, dogs get it from mosquitos and it is not contagious. It is easily prevented and highly treatable, but requires extended rest during treatment.
