Hi everyone!  Meet sweet Lacy, our newest girl from Puerto Rico. She is approximately 6-8 months old and was found as a stray with a big yellow rope tied to her. Our rescue friends went to get her right away! She’s as SWEET as sweet can be! She went to our vet in Puerto Rico and was vaccinated and checked over. Unfortunately she tested positive for Heartworm, so she's going through the treatment protocol and is safe in a foster home, being well cared for and loved. Her foster home, there, reports to us that she is wonderful with all people, children, and all dogs. She is good with cats. Lacy will be coming up to us after she is done with her heartworm treatment. As with all of our Puerto Rico dogs she will need help with loose leash walking and we will require a basic obedience class for her as well. If you would like to adopt Lacy, please fill out an application online www.theboxerrescue.org

The average lifespan of heartworms in untreated canines is 5-7 years; virtually 100% of dogs exposed to infective heartworm larvae become infected. The American Heartworm Society (AHS) estimates that only 55% of dogs in the U.S. are currently on a heartworm preventive, leaving 27 million dogs at risk of acquiring this horrible disease. In the USA, veterinarians recommend Heartworm prevention for dogs. Please see your local veterinarian to have your pet tested and put on preventatives yearly.
