Wallace is a very sweet and gentle senior at approximately 12 years old. He is an extremely easy-going boy that walks beautifully on a leash and gets along great with both of the dogs in his current foster home. He is house-trained and not destructive at all. Some of Wallace s favorite things include: exploring in the backyard and then coming in and piling up his blankets and taking a long nap, enjoying treats and getting his ears scratched, laying in front of the fireplace on his cozy bed (with his blankets of course).

Wallace did test positive for Heartworm and due to his age will be undergoing the "slow kill" treatment process. He will be on heartworm preventative twice a month and for the next 6 months. He'll be on a low activity regimen for those 6 months. Both the heartworm treatment and blood test after 6 months are paid for by GRFR at one of our contracted vets. Wallace'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 Wallace who has had heartworm, but there is no need to be. It is both curable and preventable.
