Other Info: George has a very sad story and is desperately in need of a forever home. Found emaciated, heart-worm positive and tied to a tree abandoned, George was taken in by a family in Georgia. We heard his story and have paid for his extensive medical care and tried to acclimate him into our home with our two resident Chessies. Unfortunately, he cannot get along with them and the house is divided. He has been diagnosed with PRA, his eyesight is compromised and he will eventually lose his sight. Despite his tragic story, George is a complete snuggle bunny that just wants a human to love (and sleep with). We are looking for a very special home for this boy and will work hard to make that happen. Please contact us with any questions!
