Ford, along with eight other dogs, were rescued by Helping Strays after being seriously neglected. They were hungry, thin, scared and not trusting of people, had skin infections and mange. Some of the dogs had lost all their hair! They all began treatment and rehab right away and are responding well; their skin infections are healed and hair is starting to grow back.
Ford is living in a foster home now where he is good with other dogs and cats. He can be shy but warms up quickly. He is housebroken and can be trusted to stay in the home alone. He enjoys taking walks but will need some training on leash manners.
Ford is a sweet and laid back guy. He will need a loving and patient family as he adjusts to his new life. Won’t you make Ford part of your family and give him a chance at a loving and healthy life?
Ford is three years old and weighs 66 pounds.

Ford has heartworms and will be starting treatment soon. He would greatly benefit from having a quiet home to recuperate in rather than trying to rest in a noisy and stressful shelter environment. If you would like to provide a foster home, or foster-to-adopt home, during Ford’s heartworm treatment, Helping Strays will provide everything you need; the medical care, crate, food, etc. Foster-to-adopt would be a great way to get to know him. Finalizing the adoption would be done once treatment is complete.
