**This dog is still available if listed on Petfinder. Please read about our rescue and adoption policies at lahpstr.petfinder.com. Applicants need to be pre-approved to be matched to a dog. Apply at www.lahpstr.com to become approved. Only applicants with a solid history of vetting and responsible pet ownership who pass a home and reference checks will be considered. First-time pet owners are also welcome to apply to be pre-approved. We adopt our dogs to the "best fit" approved adopters. We offer free transport within Continental US by air or road to most approved applicants.** Hi there, My name is Nugget. I am about two years old and weigh around 12 lbs. I was rescued in Texas where I was left tied outside all the time in the heat. No one cared for me and I was emaciated, matted and flea-ridden, with long nails and painful sticky burrs next to my skin. My foster Mom took me to the vet immediately, who said that I also had a prior (minor) leg fracture that had not been treated. Temperament: friendly with small and larger dogs, and people. Child-friendly. I enjoy car rides, supervised outside yard time and toys. I am a cuddler who likes to sleep next to my person(s). Energy level: medium. Playful but I also like to relax in between. Vetting: Fully vetted - neutered, UTD on core shots and bordetella, comprehensive bloodwork, fecal test, 4Dx test, microchipped. Health challenges: Relatively unaffected by prior minor leg fracture. Will occasionally lift my leg if tired. Adoption Donation: $350 I am looking for a quiet home with or without kids and other dogs. A fenced yard would be great. Are you looking for a warm, squishy cuddler? I just might be the one you are looking for. Please apply at www.lahpstr.com. View full description »

His medium-grade heart murmur does not require treatment. Ronan is a feisty little fellow who loves his food and treats, and will come to the kitchen to protest if one is ever late with his meals! 2.

Health Challenges Ronan is blind and has a medium-grade heart murmur. He has seen a veterinary ophthalmologist and cardiologist. Ronan takes prescription eye medication twice a day and eye lubricant at least 3-4 times daily. He does not need any medication for his heart. Going forward, Ronan will need annual monitoring with eye and heart specialists to keep him in the best health. 5. Adoption Donation $300 6. Ronan's ideal home Ronan's perfect family will have lots of love, understanding and patience to care for a dog with his special needs. We prefer a family with at least one stay-at-home or retired adult, or one adult who works from home to keep up with Ronan's eye medication regimen during the day. A fenced yard is preferred since Ronan loves to explore outdoors and for his safety, will need to be supervised in a secure area. We will require the family to contractually commit to his veterinary care going forward. Ronan comes from a harsh, neglectful background and we want him to be assured of his best life now. Ronan will make a wonderful little companion! Are you ready to open your heart and home, and commit to this gorgeous baby boy?
