Dog of the Week: Vega

Julia D Dog of the Week

Vega is truly a bright star! She came to LHAR starving and heartworm positive. She has soared through her treatment and beefed up to become an affectionate pack member who loves to follow her people around and snuggle on the couch. She is now a big girl who loves to go outside for her limited walks. Her activity has been limited because of her heartworm diagnosis, but she would love longer walks. She will need some more leash training since she has become a big strong dog, and she should be back to full activity within the next month. She does not appear to be reactive to other dogs on leash and we have only heard her bark once in 4 months when surprised by another dog. She is very mellow and is relaxed through vacuuming, thunder, and fireworks. She enjoys car rides. Vega does not know how to play and ignores balls, sticks, and pull toys. She loves playing “where’s the biscuit?” and will happily search a room until she has found it. She is a smart, housetrained, kennel trained, and basic command trained affectionate dog who will become a lifelong companion for a lucky owner! She is about two years old.

Vega’s adoption fee is $250 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
