Meet ABE! This Texas boy has all the best qualities of a true southern gentleman - he’s loyal, loving and very well mannered. ABE was definitely a family pet before he came to us as he knows all basic commands and listens very well to his people. ABE is fully house trained but doesn’t care for a crate which is totally fine because he doesn’t eat anything or cause any damage when given the run of the house. He just patiently waits by the door for you to come home! ABE is the perfect blend of energy levels – he’ll cuddle with you all day but also loves going for long walks or trips to the dog park. His tail wags CONSTANTLY and he ALWAYS has a smile on his face. This dude could not be anymore amazig. Unfortunately he has tested POSITIVE for heartworm and needs to lay off the exercise right now until his retest in September. He is although allowed to DOG and be his normal self! He is over his rest period, but should avoid over activity (hikes, dog parks, etc.). When he first came out of the transport truck he was SO EXCITED FOR HIS NEW LIFE!! He was trying to sit on his transporters lap and needed everyone to appreciate that this was his second chance. HE. IS. PUMPED. He’s cool with other dogs and is starting to realize that he can actually run around and play with them (but not during recovery). He is happy to meet ALL the things and be everyones best friend. Okay, accept rabbits. They are the enemy. He would be a great family dog as he bonds easily and is a professional cuddler. One thing ABE absolutely can’t handle is cats. He has high prey drive! ABE is extremely loyal and eager to please! Once you meet him you’ll probably feel like he’s always been right by your side. If you’d like to meet happy-go-lucky ABE, fill out an application
