Enzo’s Going North!


Yesterday, we took our foster dog Enzo to be tested for heartworm, with our fingers crossed. He’s been with us about two months, fighting a positive HW diagnosis with a heavy course of treatment that required him to be crated for the first month we had him. Finally after a few disappointing tests, Enzo’s test came back negative and he’s in the clear to travel North on Miami Dogs On the Move! MDOtM is a new program at MDAS that has saved 800+ shelter dogs since it’s inception last November! (Read more in our previous Enzo post.) He’s going to New Hampshire, to a no-kill rescue group. From there, they will find this boy a wonderful forever home, just as they’ve done with so many MDAS dogs in the past.

Can you believe they were going to kill me?! I’m so pretty & SO happy now I get to LIVE!!!!

When Enzo came to us, his ribs were showing, he refused to eat and was very sick. We tried 7 different dog foods, home-cooked meals and table scraps to no avail. Finally we discovered he would eat wet food when fed by hand– piece by piece. After this daily feeding routine, he slowly started to put weight on. Eventually Enzo started eating by himself and about 2 weeks ago, he started scarfing food down. Though he still needs to gain more, he’s put on about 10 lbs. since he came to us. And with his newfound appetite, his coat has come in extra shiny and soft.

Hello!

Enzo has been a fun guy to have around the house. He’s constantly roughhousing with Chelsea, playing Yard Cop with Harley and trying to become Scarlett’s boyfriend. He loves his toys and will play by himself for hours, throwing and chasing them around the living room. He’s also now potty trained, crate trained and learning basic obedience. We’ll miss him bunches but we’re excited for the great new life that awaits this boy!

My foster mom says Chelsea is “The Foster Dog Whisperer”. I don’t know what that means but she sure does like me a lot!
