Sven was found in a ditch, in pain. We believe he was hit by a car, then left for dead. He was also very thin and dehydrated, so we believe he didn't have a great life before the accident either. We are searching for a forever family who will assure Sven he never lives a day without love, devotion, safety, and joy!

Sven is a happy boy, full of energy and curiosity. He's fully crate trained, walks on leash, is partially house trained (will use a pee pad - this was needed early on due to his injury/surgery). This boy is strong and still learning basic manners.

While he does love kids and other dogs, he's learning boundaries and could potentially knock a child down or upset another dog by throwing himself into them or play biting. Sven is good with tiny dogs. We are working on this - adopter should expect to continue training.

Sven is recovering very well from ortho surgery (pelvis fracture). He has one more recheck 4/26 for the all clear. He was neutered 4/7 and is on "slow kill" heartworm treatment (oral meds, stage I heartworm infection, no heartworm disease).

Sven wants to be a part of the family and will bark if separated from them. Otherwise, he's a quiet sweet pea who loves to snuggle on the couch. If interested in Sven, apply today!

A completed adoption application and home visit are required for approval to adopt a CARE dog. The most accurate and complete information about available dogs can be found on our official website at
