Hi! My name is Schatzi and I’m a good ole man! I am a 10+ year old blind, heartworm positive short haired/ neutered and short legged guy. I am very mellow, but I definitely do not like cats! If introduced appropriately, I may be okay with other male dogs. It takes me a while to warm up to them, but I'm finally getting along with my male foster fur sibling!
I came to the rescue from an animal shelter where I was found as a stray so my foster mom does not know much about me. I do have some medical issues going on right now but my foster mom always tells me that I am a good boy! I am taking some antibiotics for some mild skin issues and have eyedrops for my eyes. I will be starting heartworm treatments within the next month, I have to be on antibiotics first. I also have been diagnosed with an enlarged liver/ possibly a mass on it and will need to be on lifelong meds for this as well.
I am housetrained and I sleep in the big bed with my foster mom and fur siblings. I am ok in a crate for VERY SHORT periods. I do sleep a lot throughout the day but when I am up I like to go explore the house. I don’t go for many walks with my foster mom but sometimes she will put me in the stroller and I will go that way. I do like to explore the backyard with my foster siblings and of course supervised by mom.
I have a few dog beds in the house that are my favorite. I ride well in the car - I just need to make sure that I do not fall off the seat. My foster mom usually leaves the leash on me and puts me shotgun.
I am current on vaccines and I am currently on flea and tick medication along with heartworm medication. I am also micro chipped. If you think I sound like the perfect lifelong buddy for you please fill out an application and I will give you tons of love in return!
If you think this special little guy is for you, please let us know if you already have an application on file or fill one out today!
