Sam is one of the Indiana Three, a subset of a group of nine adult and four puppies rescued from a breeder turned hoarder in Indiana. A fellow rescue group, Clancy’s Dream, saved all the pups and in turn, transferred the pups to several other rescues, including BCSAVE (who took three). Unfortunately, all the dogs rescued were heartworm positive. However, that doesn’t impact Sam!
A 2 year old classic black and white BC, Sam is also very typical of BC in temperament. He is constantly on the move, curious and energetic. He has not shown and ball, toy or herding drive yet, but that may change as he gets more used to his new situation. He is a friendly dog, getting along with the other pups though not engaging in too much play just yet. He is also a little underweight, but we expect that to change as he gets better food.
Because Sam is heartworm positive, he will have to go through a minimum 120 days of treatment. BCSAVE follows the American Heartworm Society (AHS) “fast kill” protocol, which means Sam will be on several medications and severe activity restriction for the next four months. While he is listed as “Coming Soon”, interested adopters can submit an application today and if approved to adopt Sam, can either adopt pending the completion of his treatment with hi soster, or adopt sooner by signing a Heartworm Addendum and confirming that they will continue with his treatment and providing proof after treatment is finished.
