We are considering meeting Ariana on Saturday. She is a two and a half year old boxer/mastiff mix and 80lbs of love. I can, and of course I will, do my research about heartworm positive dogs. I just want to post here to get your experiences. I find Boxerworld is much more reliable than a Google search. The shelter will pay for her treatment at no cost to the adopter but I just want to make sure I understand what I am getting into if we decide she is a good fit for our home. This particular shelter pulls dogs from kill shelters in our area. They also have a high success rate with moving the dogs into furever homes. With that said, the dog history is often not known or sketchy at best. They do a really good job of vetting dogs and determining if they are other dog/cat friendly but they often don't know the dog's history. If anyone has adopted a heart worm positive dog I would like to hear your experience. From what I understand, dogs undergoing this treatment need to be kept quiet, and I do have a quiet household, just me the BF, no kids. We do both work at least 8 hour days though. Not many dogs can handle that either, I get it. I do have a doggy sitter than can come when we both have late days. Thanks all, opinions welcome!
