Garth was a stray dog whom people in a neighborhood were feeding. One person eventually took him and dumped him in Moscow. One of the neighbors got upset about that and went and found him. She called us to see if we could take him, but we had no room at that time, so he went on our waiting list. When we got Garth, he was very skinny, heartworm-positive and had a cherry eye. He had surgery on his eye and went through heartworm treatment, so he is now healthy and very happy. Garth is a super sweet dog and he always looks like he is smiling. Garth spent some time in a foster home and his foster mom said, “Garth is a great dog! He has learned his name and is learning to sit and come. He’s almost 100% housetrained and is crate-trained. He loves food and likes to see what we are cooking. He has lots of energy and a little mischief. Garth is full of energy so he needs exercise all the time.” He needs a 6-ft. fence. His date of birth is July 14, 2015, and he weighs about 40lbs. Garth has been neutered, is microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines, and has been on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. He comes with a 30-day pet health guarantee. His adoption fee is $95 with an approved application. Meet him:
