Update on Beckett: Although Beckett is still heartworm positive, he was deemed healthy enough to be neutered. His tail was amputated at the same time, so that when he wags it, it can no longer hit the wall and bleed. Beckett would like to go to his “furever” home as soon as possible. He is very tired of being a kennel dog.
Meet Beckett, a big, happy 6 year old boy with a tail that wags non-stop and a personality that is second-to-none! His favorite thing is to just be around people and to get lots of love and attention from anyone who happens to be nearby.
He was found wandering in Miami and had been terribly neglected. The kind lady who found him could not take him into her home, but fed him, bathed him and contacted EGRR through one of our volunteers.
We don’t know specifics about his background, but we can surmise some of the details of the very hard life he led. We think that he was probably an outside dog due to the poor condition of his skin and tail. He’s currently on medication to eradicate the skin infection and is being given twice weekly medicated baths so his beautiful Golden coat will grow back. Poor Becket is also Heartworm positive and is receiving the safer slow-kill method of treatment that is recommended by the American Heartworm Society.
He is housebroken, loves people, but is not crazy about cats. He’d prefer to be an only dog. His tail wags so hard that he has a condition called “Happy Tail”, which means that his tail wags so vigorously that when he hits something with it, it tends to bleed.
If you have room in your home and your heart for a very special boy who really needs a family of his own, please call EGRR. Beckett will reward you with love many times over!
