Handsome Young Man
AJ, for Alexander Jake, is a orange and white male, and is about 18 months old. AJ has been a perfect gentleman since his arrival on March 20. He doesn't jump on people or counters, show any signs of fear or aggression towards anyone (adults or dogs), and hasn't messed in the house or crate at all. AJ did arrive in a very poor state of health; he is emaciated, has a severe hookworm infestation with subsequent hookworm anemia, and is a very slight positive for heartworms. At the vet he loved meeting all of the technicians and the doctor who decided AJ stood for Apple Jack! He has been dewormed and has a very healthy appetite. Once he gains some weight, we will begin treatment for his heartworms which will take six months. AJ does love his plush squeaky toys, and prefers them over hard bones. Hopefully soon AJ will be able to go for long walks and romp with his new brothers and sister, but for now we are focused on his long-term health. More to come soon, but AJ is a perfect gentleman with a true gentle pointer soul.
