Memphis is a sweet, loving Hound/Beagle mix who is about 6 years old, weighs 50 lbs and (along with his best friend, Savannah), is in IMMEDIATE NEED of a FOSTER! Memphis & Savannah were abandoned in their home and ultimately brought to an overcrowded, high kill shelter. Since they were male & female, they were not allowed to be housed together at the shelter so they cried & barked for each other across their kennels. The shelter staff said these 2 dogs really love each other and are gentle, kind, laid back dogs. When BarkVille was notified that this bonded pair was scheduled to be euthanized, we pulled them to save their lives, but we weren't able to find a foster home so this sweet pair ended up at our partner boarding facility. Our wonderful boarding partner made them a big run so they could be together, but we recently learned that both dogs are Heartworm positive, which means they need a quiet, low key place to rest so we can provide them with the lifesaving HW treatment they need. If you are not familiar with Heartworm disease, dogs get it from mosquitos and it is not contagious. It is easily prevented & highly treatable, but requires extended rest during treatment. BarkVille covers all medical expenses while the dogs are being fostered & treated for heartworms.
Memphis & Savannah are both dog friendly, cat friendly, mellow, well behaved and very sweet. They enjoy being with people and love human attention. If you can foster this beautiful, very deserving pair and provide a home for them for at least 8 weeks while they recover from their HW treatment, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit an application for them at https://www.barkvilledogrescue.org/applications
BarkVille is located in Roswell, GA and our dogs are available for adoption in the Greater Atlanta area. Applicants in surrounding states could potentially adopt a BarkVille dog if their application is approved, they live within 2-3 hours of the Greater Atlanta area, and they are able to pick up their dog from her foster home.
