Pud is having a really tough time.
First, he landed in a shelter. This poor boy completely lost his mind in the kennels and started lashing out at everyone. So he was moved to the Director's office and loved the quiet environment.
Then he landed here. He was only supposed to be here a few days as we held him until one of our partner rescues had space...but we discovered he also does not do well in the loud environment of facility based rescues, either. And he will holy hell bite if you try to cram him in a crate.
Pud now lives in one of the Manor's guest bedrooms. It's quiet and away from all the hubbub of shelter/rescue life...and he is an absolute joy! We are now partnering with his originating shelter: he is going to stay here for his heartworm treatment, and they are going to place him with one of their foster-based rescues. He is a lovely dog, completely housebroken and non-destructive...in a regular home environment. So a facility based organization is a terrible match for the poor boy.
But...he has to have his heartworms treated before he can go. We normally do the 3 shot heartworm protocol that is preferred by the American Heartworm Society and most vets. Unfortunately, Pud's stress level is still high here, so we want to get him to a regular foster home ASAP so we are doing the 2-shot protocol instead. This was the normal treatment for many years and is safe enough...and in his case, expedites his movement to a less stressful environment.
Without treatment, he is dying. And without treatment, he can't get into a home as it is 3-4x more expensive in New Jersey, where he is likely going.
Also--he has a stupid name. And the faster he gets a family of his own, the faster he can get a more dignified name than ... PUD.
