Update from forever family:
Hi all, wanted to give you an update on Chester (originally Fergus). I think the attached photo says it all. He s adjusted well & truly made our home his home almost immediately. Our Corgi, Kosmo, has decided he s worth having around . He s been so good for my husband with their long walks & visits to the dog park where he s made more friends. We re so grateful for GRFR & the work you guys do. Special shoutout to Archie, Chester s foster mom, who helped shape the dog we have today. We updated his microchip info to ensure his safety.
Fergus is a 10 month old male mix. He is good with cats, dogs, and kids. He loves belly rubs and giving kisses. Fergus is working on basic commands and would need someone who could reinforce everything he has learned! He is very smart and a fast learner. He is crate trained and house trained.
Fergus is very playful and has lots of puppy energy! He is always ready to go run around, hike, play fetch, or anything else you can think of!
Fergus was hit by a car two months ago and hurt his front left leg. The vet says it has fully healed and is nothing to worry about at this point. He would just have a higher chance of arthritis in the joint when he is older. He does not complain about it at all now and you would never know with the way he runs!
Fergus did test positive for Heartworm and will be treated soon. He will have a no activity requirement for 30 days after treatment. He'll be on a low activity regimen for the next 6 months after that. Both the heartworm treatment and blood test after 6 months are paid for by GRFR at one of our contracted vets. Fergus's
forever family will need to be sure he takes a monthly heartworm preventative year round. Some people might be leery of a dog like Fergus who has had heartworm, but there is no need to be. It is both curable and preventable.
