Adopt Sonny, The Yellow Lab With An Amazing Story!
Hi, I'm Sonny! I'm an 8 year old yellow lab. I'm a neutered male and I’m updated on all of my vetting! I came here from another shelter where I was found as a stray. When I got here I had a mass on my shoulder the size of my head, and the vet staff ran a test and found out I was also heart worm positive. I went into surgery to have my mass removed and Dr. Amy removed as much of the mass as she could, but it was intertwined with my muscle so she could not get it all. I then went home with one of the vet techs to recover, and that is where I will stay until I am adopted! My mass was benign, although it is something that may grow back slowly. I am staying with 2 other dogs and 2 cats right now. I don't mind any of my roommates, but I do not want to play with them. I have my own room in my foster house so when they are being annoying I have somewhere to get away from them. I LOVE my toys especially my tennis ball to play fetch with! I will throw my toy at you over and over again until you throw it for me. But since I have heart worm, I'm not supposed to play which is pretty frustrating for me. I had my heart worm treatments but it will take me about 6 months to fully recover from it. In that time I must stay inactive, so that my heart has time to heal. I am a very good boy in the house. I will not get on the furniture, even though my roommates do. I just like a warm blanket to lay on the floor next to your bed at night! If you sit on the floor with me sometimes I like to sit on your lap, until I find another toy I want to play with. I also have a human foster sister who is only a year old, and even though she wants to climb all over me, I really like her! I would be an amazing addition to any family, all I want is to have a human to love me and play fetch with me!
