We need your help.
We are looking for a very special person who can help us help Chumpy.
Chumpy is the typical lovely boxer boy who has lived with his family for nearly 7 years.
He was just tested positive for heart worm disease.
We believe no dog needs to die just because he has a treatable disease and therefore we are looking for a foster carer who can provide a loving home for Chumpy during his treatment. At this stage he is not showing symptoms yet which is great.
What are the requirements?
** A quiet home, Chumpy should be kept as calm as possible, no walks, no running or jumping around, he can walk around in the house though
** No little children (as he showed some jealousy towards a little girl)
** No other pets
** Foster carer willing to give him daily tablets and drive him to the vet once a month (we pay the vet)
** Heart worm disease is treatable and the success rate is very high
** Heart worm disease is transmitted by mosquitoes and you cannot get it from a dog suffering from it
Chumpy’s owner cannot keep him any longer and over the weekend he will be tied up in his workshop, he is not allowed at home any more.
We need to get Chumpy into a foster home ASAP, as always we prefer fostering with the view of adoption, but it is not a must.
Current location: Rockhampton
