On Medical Hold for Heartworm Treatment
I'm Alfred, a gorgeous 8 year old lab who absolutely loves life and everyone in it! I am good with other dogs, good with kids, and am housetrained, too. I need a bit of training on a leash, but other than that, I'm pretty perfect. I did test positive for heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes, so I am undergoing heartworm treatment to rid me of the disease. It does appear that I have had it for some time, and have some heart damage from it, but hopefully when I'm all done with treatment I'll have many years of health and comfort ahead of me. It will be some time before I'm available for adoption, but for now I'm enjoying time in my foster home while I get better!
