When we heard Hershel’s story, there was no way we could ignore his need for help. we were told that Hershel is 7-8 years of age, but the reality is 12-14 years old and 100 pounds. We are currently working with the vets to determine some of his medical needs. Losing weight will definitely help his ACL problems and hips, and he has recently begun medication for hypothyroidism. Sadly, poor Hershel is also being treated in a less invasive way for heart-worm disease. Putting all this aside, he is an absolute sweetheart, and we desperately are hoping to help this neglected, tender-hearted boy find someone who will love and care for him. We know there are many with the heart to bring an older dog into their lives to provide all the loving care they deserve.
