Health
Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered, special needs. Gauge was found to have a heart murmur. X-rays revealed mild heart enlargement and borderline enlargement of of pulmonary vessels. Blood pressure readings revealed hypertension is present. He does not currently have any evidence of congestive heart failure, but due to the changes that are present, Gauge was started on two heart medications that will likely need to be continues lifelong plus the addition of medications over time. New owners should discuss this condition and its monitoring/management with new family veterinarian. Due to the natures of heart disease, it is hard to predict if/when he will enter into heart failure in the futures. A special diagnostic imaging test called an echo cardiogram would need to be performed by a veterinary cardiologist to determine the exact cause and prognosis of his murmur.

Meet Gauge

Hound
7 years old
Neutered Male
Adoption fee: $100.00

Gauge is a sweet old man who is looking for a home where he can relax and get lots of head scratches. Gauge is a little older and is retired from hunting so he is looking for a lower energy home where he can live out the rest of his retirement.

We always recommend crate training, exercise, playtime, and a regular schedule for potty breaks when bringing a new dog into your home. The shelter environment is much different than your home, so expect the unexpected. We do our best to help find the right pet for you, but your new dog may act differently on your turf than he/she did on ours. Adjustment takes time for both you and your new family member, so remember to be patient and enjoy this new and exciting time!

Included in the adoption fee are rabies & distemper vaccinations, heartworm testing, deworming, spay or neuter surgery.
