Meet Kretcher

Meet Kretcher! Kretcher is 2 years old and 50lbs. He was found in a rural area in Alabama and just jumped in someone's car when they stopped. He was very skinny and suffering from skin issues.
Kretcher is a very sweet dog who needed some time to adjust from life in a shelter to life with a family. When he first arrived in his foster home, he had heartworm and bouts of fear-based aggression around new people. But now, 6 months later, he has finished his heartworm treatment, has learned standard obedience behaviors, and is becoming more and more comfortable and trusting.
His ideal family would be without small children or other pets, and his adopters will want to continue training this super dog, who needs a fair amount of mental and physical stimulation.
He's a great snuggle-buddy, loves long rides in the car, and is very food-motivated (which helps with his training!).


Update 5/11/20 - Kretcher unfortunately tested positive for heartworm disease. He got this by being bitten by an infected mosquito. He is not contagious to other dogs (but all dogs should be on heartworm prevention monthly, year-round to prevent infection/reinfection). Underdog has started Kretcher on treatment for heartworm, and with proper after-care, he will fully recover. His adopter will simply need to bring Kretcher to scheduled treatment appointments and keep his CALM (with strict crate rest or supervised relaxation) post treatment injections (for 3 months). We provide adopters with instructions and will cover needed meds. We are seeking applicants who live in the greater Madison area, since crucial treatment and care (multiple visits over 2 months) are completed at our vet clinic, located in Madison. Dogs who are treated for heartworm have a positive likelihood of recovery when post-treatment instructions and rest are followed.
