Johnny Cash was found as a stray back in December of 2022. Statistically, being a large, black, boxy-headed, mixed breed, Johnny Cash's odds of getting out of the shelter were slim.
After being at the shelter for three months, Johnny Cash was diagnosed with heartworm, further decreasing his chances of being adopted. Heartworm can be deadly for dogs, and treatment can be complex, especially in a shelter setting. Desperate to start Johnny Cash's treatment as soon as possible, and in a home setting, the shelter pleaded for a foster. After months of searching, the shelter's pleas were answered, and a foster came forward to help Johnny Cash through his medical journey.
Throughout Johnny Cash's treatment, his foster built an unbreakable bond with him and fell in love. Johnny Cash has completed his heartworm treatment and has found his forever home with his medical foster! Special thank you to Friends of Pinal County Animal Shelters & Rescue; because of their partnership, we can help with medical cases like Johnny Cash's.
