About Me:

Hi I'm Hero!

Not too much is known about my life before I came into WAG's care other than I had a family that loved me. 

I was brought into the shelter and the staff's main concern was my health, I had not been feeling well for a few days and had stopped eating when I was surrendered to WAG.

I was taken to Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital and Eagleview Veterinary Hospital, all of the doctors were really nice, but I was a little nervous! 

After lots of care and tests, my blood work showed severely elevated liver values with non-regenerative anaemia. I  was in the end stages of liver failure and it is most likely due to ingesting something extremely poisonous over a week ago.


Despite this, I am such a sweet and happy boy, whose appetite was almost completely gone, except for roasted chicken, so after careful thought, WAG staff and Dr Armstrong agreed that despite my condition and it was a (very) long shot, we just had to try treatment! I was brought back to Eagleview Veterinary Clinic and was hospitalized.

After days of hospitalization, I made it! Now I am at the shelter and have my puppy energy back! 

This has been a HUGE change for me and I can be a little shy to meet new people, after some encouragement though, I come around pretty fast! 

I am scheduled for a recheck and after that, the staff will know what kind of home I am looking for and what will make me most comfortable. I am on a speciality diet that my forever family will have to follow! 

I need a home that is committed to me and ready to give me a life with love and adventure for the rest of my years. A little bit of training with my new family would also be beneficial to all of us. I can't wait to find my forever home.

My Story:

I am another one of WAG's many Critical Care cases this year! If you cannot adopt me at this time, please consider donating to my care!
