This gentle giant with the droopy face is Hogan, a 7 year-old Mastiff mix male who came into a local county dog shelter as a stray and sadly tested positive for heartworms there. The shelter reached out to us for help with him so he came to Canine Lifeline so he could get the lifesaving treatment that he needed. Hogan has received his series of immiticide injections to kill the adult heartworms and has recovered well. He has done well with the crate rest required during his recuperation and is now ready to find himself a great new home. Hogan is a BIG dog but at 7 years-old enjoys going for a walk and then making himself comfortable on his bed to enjoy a comfy nap. He walks quite well on a leash given his size and would enjoy a home where he could take a stroll around the block each day. He would also love a yard with an aboveground fence so he could explore and sun-bathe at his leisure. Hogan gets along well with other dogs but a rowdy young dog would not be to his liking. If there’s a companion dog in his new home, it should be an older calm dog whose energy level would match Hogan’s. This lovable boy does drool so his new family would need to accept that about him. Hogan weighs about 90 pounds but is thin and needs to gain about 10 pounds to reach his ideal weight. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Hogan. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.

Thank you from Hogan and Canine Lifeline!
