Good boy McCoy! This pretty boy is a gentle soul, with great kindness. He is quiet and calm and very well mannered. McCoy enjoys lounging on his dog bed, eating treats and hanging with the family relaxing. He really enjoys attention and gives hugs as if to say "thanks!" McCoy also enjoys car rides and walks. He is an excellent companion and such a great boy to have around - his foster family will be sad to see him go, but very happy for his forever family!
McCoy came to us heartworm positive. We see this a lot in rescue, but he had a severe case and subsequent kidney damage. It's likely he'll need lifelong medication to keep his blood pressure in check. An adopter needs to know that his medication regimen will cost around $100/mo. ($40 for meds and $60 for food). He will need to be on a low protein/salt diet for life as well.
A naturally "chill" personality, we're thinking it's because he knows he was rescued and finally getting the care he's deserved.
McCoy is 3 years old and currently weighs 60 lbs., but does need to put on some weight (about 10 lbs.). He is housebroken (needs a little attention at night, though), crate trained, walks well on a leash and knows a few basic commands. He is great with the other dogs in the house, large and small and good with kids.
****UPDATE MAY 2015****
As of his last vet visit, McCoy has graduated from medical hold and is ready for adoption! A couple things for potential adopters to be aware of, McCoy will be on two blood pressure pills for the rest of his life. He also will require specific "kidney" diet dog food (low salt, low protein).
McCoy does require crating when left alone (he will otherwise find ways to express his displeasure that you have left). A reinforced crate is best that he can not break free from!
McCoy is housebroken, good on a leash, but most importantly, gets along with everyone and everything! He is a super happy guy that loves to play and to just be a part of the family in any environment.
