Igor, now Thor was surrendered by his family because his dad was being deployed overseas and his mom was pregnant with their 2nd child. They felt it was in his best interest to be placed into a new home because he would not receive the attention he deserved. He is 6 years old and been neutered, brought up to date on Rabies, DHPP, Lepto, Flu, heartworm testing and preventative. He is potty trained, good with children and very active for his age. He is being treated for bilateral ear infections and Pigmentary Keratitis. He will return to the Ophthalmologist in 3 months to be rechecked. He also has a cataract in the same eye that should be resolved with the medication for the Keratitis. Once he sees the Ophthalmologist and receives clearance he will be made available to be adopted.
