Hi! My name is Tuff! I am a 2-year-old male, heartworm positive Pit mix that is currently available for adoptions at Rockwall Adoptions. I was originally found stray off of Dianna Rd. on 02/02/22 and brought to the shelter. Sadly, my owners never reclaimed me. So now I am available for adoption and looking for a family to love. Rac staff hasn't been able to find me a doggy friend just yet. It appears I want to interact with other dogs, I just don't know how. So right now, I would require a meet and greet if you have other pets in the home. It appears I have some confidence issues, more so around men, but I do warm up quickly and am starting to trust more quickly than in the beginning. I am an incredibly sweet boy who will snuggle with you for as long as you will let me! I really LOVE belly rubs! I'm not great on a leash just yet; BUT RAC staff works with me every day and so far, I've been, making lots of progress and it's easy to see I'm giving it all I got. I 'm hoping to be adopted by a patient family and one that is willing to love me through it as well as continue my training at home. I also enjoy bones and comfy beds. Bones are super delicious! I haven't found my favorite toy yet, but I also act like I have never been given a toy before. Maybe my new family will teach me how to play with them. I can't wait to be adopted and finally have my very own family to love me furever! Once adopted, and thanks to donations made to Rockwall PAWS, I will be able to start heartworm treatment protocol within a couple weeks and receive treatment between 30 and 60 days after that! Treatment costs are expensive and even for rescues like Rockwall PAWS, treatment for a dog my size can easily be $500 or more! Heartworms are fatal is left untreated, so heartworm treatment is vital in order for me to be able to live a long a healthy life! A life I truly deserve and would not have the chance to have if it wasn't for donors like you! If you would like to donate towards my heartworm treatment, please click on my donate button today!
