Tippy – Adopted 09/12/2020

Happy Gotcha Day Tippy!
 
MEET MR TIPPY!! This cutie is one of the newest members of LFS. He is approximately 5 years old.  Tippy was just rescued from a shelter in rural GA and is happy as can be. He is a sweet, friendly boy who has yet to meet a stranger. He is an energetic dog who would do great with an active family. Tippy could use some work with basic commands and walking on the leash. 
 
Unfortunately  Tippy tested positive for heartworms. He is doing well with treatment so far, though he’s definitely not a fan of having to stay exercise restricted. Soon Tippy will be free of those pesky worms and be able to run around and have normal exercise again. Heartworm staging and treatment is unfortunately very costly, and as a smaller rescue, we need some help to be able to get Tippy the treatment he needs. If you can find it in your heart to donate to Tippy’s treatment, please visit labradorfriends.com/how-to-donate. We are forever thankful for all the support!

Foster update 09/09/20: Tippy has been with us for almost a week now and has made himself right at home. Tippy is one big love bug and will follow you around all day long just trying to soak up as much love and attention as possible. The first day Tippy was with us, he paced around a good bit due to being in a new environment. Now he has his favorite spots all picked out and is able to relax. Tippy had a few minor potty accidents the first day but hasn’t had any since. He is a pretty low energy boy but will run around with the other pups if they get him going. Tippy is heartworm positive but is being treated and will be over all that in no time. He gets along very well with other dogs and is very kid friendly.  He has been around infants and small children and did just fine.  And not to state the obvious but he is one handsome boy! Come meet him this Saturday!!
