Fosters Needed

Foster-to-Adopt: Whirlwind

Was that a tornado rolling by?! Oh, it must be Whirlwind! Full, FULL of energy and ready to excite your life. I am an adult Labrador and Border Collie mix that was transferred here from another facility. I am unfortunately heartworm positive, so I am looking to complete treatment in my new home. I will have to be somewhat kept calm, which might be hard for me. I do need a home with kids over 10 years old due to my energy and that I can be mouthy. I am seriously like a tornado! I do know basic commands and am so smart, I could learn anything I think. Continued training and socialization should help me with that! I love toys and playing fetch. I am a no for cats, but a go for dogs! I played off leash with another dog here and had a good time. An equally playful pal would be nice to have, but again I am plenty of dog to be your one and only.

Medical Note:
Whirlwind will need to be in foster for approximately 3 months while he is treated for his heartworm infection. All veterinary care and medications during this time will be provided by the Humane Society of Harrisburg. The foster family will have after-hours access to a staff member for any medical concerns or emergencies that may come up. By going through treatment in a foster home instead of in a kennel at the shelter, Whirlwind is more likely to recover fully and be overall less stressed. If you are interested in helping Whirlwind in his journey to a forever home or have any questions about his needs or the foster timeline, please contact Aspasia Yeager at or 717-564-3320 ext 108.
