Meet McAvoy! He is approximately 2 years old, 65 pounds, and appears to be a shepherd mix. McAvoy is so sweet and loves to give kisses! He knows basic commands like sit, quiet, and no.
He arrived to the rescue with heart worm disease and had to be kept quiet on crate rest. He did very well in his crate and loved chewing on bones and rope toys. He is now recovered from treatment and being fostered at a boarding facility. He spends his days in doggie daycare and gets along well with the other dogs. Put in your application today for this big fluffy ball of love!
Meet McAvoy this Saturday, May 5 at the Reston Pet Fiesta.
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.
