SHIMMER

Courtesy of SouthEast Rescue

NOT YET AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
Purebred, red male, approximate age 3 years. He was picked up by Rockdale County Animal Control as a stray. When his owners showed
up to get him, they were threatened with charges for severe neglect and signed his ownership over to rescue. Shimmer is a very large boy,
standing between 28 and 29 inches at the shoulder. He currently weighs only 58 pounds. He is heartworm positive and will be treated as
soon as his physical condition improves to the point that the treatment will not endanger his life. He has cysts on both eyelids and operable
tumors on his face. These too will be removed when he is in better physical condition and can be neutered. Shimmer is a very loving boy
and is wonderfully excited to receive one-on-one human attention. He loves adults, children, other dogs and cats. He is also a very vocal
boy and talks to “his humans”. Shimmer is currently fostered in McDonough, Georgia and will not be available for adoption until his
medical work is complete sometime in early 2001.
