ADOPTED 03-15-14 : We have been fostering Tracker for one week now and he is such a delight! Over the last few days he started revealing his playful side and boy is he silly! We can wind him up and he gets so excited he runs in circles. He is 100% housebroken, does not care for cats (he steers clear) and has decided the vacuum is the ultimate enemy. Besides that, he adapts to almost anything, and is the biggest lover you’ll find. For a beagle mix we were surprised to find how quiet he is. Not a barker or whiner at all. Tracker loves the car and going for walks but is also perfectly content sitting in his bed as long as his people are near.
Escaped death and found as a stray roaming the streets this beautiful golden haired boy was rescued by the Winnsboro Dog Pound and he just has the best personality ever. Anybody that meets Tracker will tell you, “Be careful, his favorite thing to do is sit in your lap and turn over and have his belly scratched.”, then he will do that thing that we all love—smile at you. We’ve never met a dog who would be more content with that than eating or running — though, our boy does enjoy his romping and playing and long leisurely strolls where he can be the center of your world.
Tracker is so incredibly sweet and loving that he’d prefer a kind caress over all else — even food! Like most of us in life, he just wants love! If you want a dog that is comical and entertaining, loyal to his family, needs only moderate exercise, makes a keen watchdog, is good with other family pets, is curious, lively, charming, and brave, then Tracker has it all. He has a comical personality and loves to play games along with a great sense of humor. He is a loyal little dog, very attached to his family, and he firmly believes that sleeping under the bedcovers is in his “Bill of Rights”.
Tracker is good with children and a great house dog. Like all dogs, he needs his daily walk. He does love his human companionship and will do well with a family that works from home or is home a lot. In time, he will adjust but it is new for him to be with humans that treat him with love and good food.
Tracker would surely have died a slow and painful death if he was not picked up that day because he is HW+. He is being treated and will be healthy and ready for his new home in mid January. A dog gets Heartworms only by the bite of an infected mosquito. There’s no other way dogs get heartworms. And there’s no way to tell if a mosquito is infected. That’s why prevention is so important.
It takes about seven months, once a dog is bitten by an infected mosquito, for the larvae to mature into adult heartworms. They then lodge in the heart, lungs, and surrounding blood vessels and begin reproducing. Once heartworms are treated, they don’t come back and dogs live a normal life and are completely cured.
Tracker has a very long life expectancy and that is one of the most desirable qualities about this special dog. His extraordinary character makes him a preferred choice for both families and single dwellers because he will provide many years of loyal companionship. If you are looking for a best friend who will want to be with you all the time, lovingly and adoringly and can show you instantly how much that attention from you means, don’t wait long, apply for him today.
