You may remember Ace. This adorable boy was brought into the Helping Hounds Project - a rescue group that specializes in homing working breeds. Helping Hounds Project also trains some of their rescues to be service animals!
Due to Ace's demeanor and eagerness to learn he was chosen for the service training program. Unfortunately, his training was put on hold when he tested positive for heartworm disease. Ace has been undergoing his heartworm treatment and recently had his final course of medications.
Many people are unaware how difficult heartworm treatment is - not only for the dog but their humans as well. Heartworm treatment is nearly a year long process that involves pills, injections, cage rest, blood draws and multiple visits to the vet.
The light is at the end of the tunnel for Ace as he recently underwent his final heartworm injections. He was a very brave boy through the entire process and received lots of love from the humans that have been by his side since day one - Dr. Erin, Makayla and Dee! With his final injections complete, Ace is in the final stages of treatment which involves rest and relaxation until his blood tests come back negative for heartworm.
Thank you Helping Hounds Project for rescuing this sweet boy and for giving him a second chance at life! We are happy and honored to have assisted in his heartworm treatment! And good luck to Ace on the rest of his recovery and the beginning of his training and placement, we hope you have every opportunity to live your best life!
