Medical Sponsorship – Kovu


Kovu is a stunning 6yr old German Shepherd/Husky mix in our rescue who is currently with one of our amazing volunteer fosters. This amazing boy is Heartworm positive and requires treatment to save his life. Treatment for heart worms can be ruff on a dog and their owners/rescues. Treatment requires the dog to be strict crate rest to keep their heart from being too stressed. For owners and rescues, heart worm treatment can cost over $1000 per dog!
Backstory: Kovu and his puppies were a severe abuse case. The owners had locked them up in a house for months without food or water. Kovu’s mate was a husky and a husky rescue took her and we took Kovu and his puppies. The puppies have since found their forever homes. Kovu, however, needed more help with human socialization. He has come a long way with his foster.

More on Kovu:
He LOVES other dogs and has gotten along with every foster that has come in the house and he is great with puppies, but he has no cat experience. Kovu also has no kid experience. So a home with older dog savvy kids, or no kids, would be best. Kovu likes to play tag with his person once he’s comfortable with you. He does like giving kisses and he is treat motivated! Kovu is looking for a pack, dogs that are sweet and will show him that people are too! He’s made so much progress that he even does ok on a leash now but he tries to avoid others walking. Kovu has a bark but really only uses it when it’s dinner time or he just got let outside and is excited!
Kovu is not a social butterfly as far as humans go. His foster can pet him, but Kovu gets no enjoyment from it. He is not a snuggle dog and since he’s 6 it could be years, or possibly never, that he reaches the point of wanting that much attention. Kovu is looking for a special someone that will love him for who he is, a sweet soul.
