Bhalu is a black and tan male weighing about 60 lbs, but needs to gain weight. We estimate his age as approximately 3 years. He is a stray from a Sacramento area shelter so nothing is known about his past. He was found extremely underweight with patches of hair loss due to poor nutrition, allergies and lack of proper care. In addition, Bhalu is heartworm positive and will complete his treatment by mid November.
He is gentle and affectionate, and enjoys meeting all dogs and humans. He enjoys car rides, adventures to the lake, and his daily walks. He sleeps in his crate at night and is house broken. We have discovered that this boy loves to play and engage with other dogs of any size and acts like a puppy with boundless play energy. We recommend he go to a home with another playful dog.
While going through heartworm treatment, Bhalu should be kept somewhat calm so the worms don't make their way into his bloodstream. He is available now, but with the condition that he can be kept calm and arrangements can be made to get him to his remaining treatments at a vet in Lodi.
Cats and small critters unknown.
This is a Level 2 Dog
