Luna Blossom is beautiful hound mix with tricoloring of black, brown, and white with an assortment of spots. She has wonderful expressive eyes, a very long tongue, lovely floppy ears, and likes to stick her cute nose in your face to sniff!
Luna is such a sweet, gentle, beautiful girl! She loves all humans and dogs and is house-trained, food motivated. If you spend most of the day out of house and want a doggo that will stay out of trouble, quiet, and snooze all day on the dog bed while you’re gone, Luna’s the one for you! The highlight of her day is when you come home and her tail goes crazy. She’s a big sniffer and loves going on walks to smell everything, meet new people, and let off some steam, but is fairly low-energy and always excited to come back to snuggle with you on the couch. This lovely girl will make someone very happy!
Luna Blossom is up-to-date on vaccinations. She tested positive for heartworm is being treated with a slow protocol that begins with 28 days of doxcycline and Heartgard twice during the first month, followed by twice-a-month Heartgard. This method gradually clears the heartworm infection without the need for excessive confinement. Most dogs will test negative for heartworm within a year using this method.
The only thing we know about Luna Blossom's history is that she was found on the side of the road by a Good Samaritan, and was brought to a rural shelter. She was there for about a week before she was brought into IAR! We suspect she previously had a home in her past, as she is house-trained, crate-trained, walks well on a leash, friendly with everyone, car-friendly, and absolutely loves couches.
IAR subsidizes post-adoption professional training with Jane Marshall (www.cheerydogs.com) to encourage a life-long and successful bond between the dog and the adopter. Group classes for puppies and adult dogs are provided at a substantial discount to IAR adopters.
