Lugosi (aka Geoffrey) is a gentle soul with the heart of a protector. He is happy to go on walks and also to just hang out. He walks well on a leash - unless a squirrel is involved. When in the yard he will bark to protect you from dangers like bicyclists, joggers and other dogs.
Legosi is house-trained and kennel-trained. He has been trustworthy to leave out in the house at night and alone for a couple hours. But you don't want to leave food that interests him near the edge of a counter or table because he feels that it is reasonable to take it.
He has evidently been left in a crate for a very long time. He came very under-nourished with extremely weak legs. He may have had a family previously because he knows how to sit and walk and is house-trained.
We have been feeding him up and going for walks to gain strength. It's a joy to see his personality come out. He has discovered that he likes to play with squeaky balls.
You can give this sweet boy a life with love and care and he will give his heart to you and be your best buddy.
Lugosi did test positive for heartworm and will be receiving treatment provided by MARS to live a long healthy life.
*A dog with Heartworms is not directly contagious to other animals. Heartworms are transmitted by an infected mosquito.
*The pet you are viewing is a rescued pet which is most often from an animal control facility and does not come with a pedigree. The breed(s) listed are our best guess and are in no way guaranteed. Sometimes the pets appear to be a particular breed(s) in the pictures we receive from our rescue partners and when they arrive we are surprised to see an entirely different breed(s) in person! If you choose to DNA test your adopted pet, test results may vary from company to company and our breed guess may not be reflected in those results as it is just that, our best guess. It is with deep longing that we wish there was a breed called "cute" as we believe all of our dogs would fall under this new breed classification!
Completion of an Adoption Application via our website www.midwestanimalrescue.org is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is the first step in our adoption process.
*Animals who are not fully vaccinated and altered are not eligible for long distance adoption.
When you adopt a pet from Midwest Animal Rescue and Services, your adoption fee covers: Microchip and registration, Core Vaccines including Rabies, Distemper and bordetella, age appropriate heartworm testing or FeLV-FIV testing, sterilization, heartworm/flea-tick prevention and deworming while in foster care.
Adoption fees are non-negotiable and can be paid by cashier's check, money order or credit card. We do not accept personal checks or cash.
Any issues that arise after adoption are the full responsibility of the adopter after the finalization of adoption. Adoption fees are only part of the expense of owning a pet, so we ask you to consider the costs for the life of the pet before adoption. We recommend pet insurance.
