Trooper is just that- a trooper! He has been through a lot in his life so far and is just so excited for his forever family to help him have the best life yet!

He was rescued out in the country in rural Arkansas where they were being allowed to roam in a wooded area unsupervised. The siblings Gordy, Flash, Augie, and Blu have already been adopted through PNE.

He is looking for a family with lots of love and attention to give. A family who understands that puppies are still learning and willing to continue puppy training to make Trooper the best family member possible. Trooper loves to run and play with his other foster siblings. He is a true joy to his foster mom. He loves toys.

He is also completely house trained! He has been around older kids and has done well. He loves other dogs but has not been around cats. Trooper is not mouthy or nippy. Not a barker. Motivated by food. Enjoys snuggling with foster mom. Enjoys belly rubs. Enjoys the nail grinder at beauty time. Loves to play catch with the water sprayer. Does a cute head tilt when being talked to!

He is truly an amazing dog!

Name: Trooper Genoa
Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler/Australian Shepherd
Sex: Male
Age: 8 months as of 5/30/21 (estimated)
Weight: 50 as of 5/30/21
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Vaccinations: Up to date
Heartworm: Negative on recent testing
Microchipped: Yes
Medical: Trooper has a tick borne disease called Hepatozoonosis. According to the vet it will be a lifelong disease, but one that is easily managed. As the dog gets older, relapses could be less frequent. During a relapse, the dog just wants to sleep, if this symptom is ignored or missed, it then becomes difficult for the dog to walk. The antibiotics used during a relapse are antirobe and sulfatrim, and the steroid prednisone. Following the flare, Decoquinate 6% (brand name Deccox) is an antiparasitic that is sprinkled on a dog’s food twice daily. Dose is 1 tsp/22 lb. twice daily. At Trooper’s current weight (50 lb), a 2 lb bag of Deccox (purchased at Premier 1 for 35.00/2 lb) will last approximately 3 months. The vet has recommended that Deccox be used for a couple years to aide in maintaining remission. Trooper’s foster mom mixes with a little milk to make a liquid and he laps it up like a special treat. After stopping the Deccox in 2 years, a relapse within 6 months is common, at which time the sulfatrim, clindamycin, and pyrimethamine therapy is resumed until symptoms are gone.

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
