Meet Katana! This sweet senior girl is in desperate need of a hero! We have just learned she is heart worm positive. At her age and with the damage to the heart, Katana will need “slow kill” heart worm treatment. Friends of Bedford County Animal Shelter is willing to sponsor the cost if we can find an adopter to give her the care she needs during the treatment. Her activity will have to be limited. This treatment is hard on a dog, especially an older one. She is 49 pounds (very underweight), 9-10 years old, vaccinated, and spayed. She had tested well with other friendly dogs. She has not been exposed to small dogs, but is not a good fit for a home with cats. Katana has spent her life outdoors and really needs an indoor home where she can live out her days as a couch potato! 
Katana will need an adopter willing to transport her to her heartworm treatment visits and keep her calm and activity restricted While she goes through treatment.

This dog is currently in foster with Friends of Bedford County Animal Shelter. To fill out an application, please visit: Please contact if you have any further questions.
