The dog, dubbed "Sugar," came in as a stray and her sweet disposition initially made her available for general adoption. Unfortunately, she has tested heart-worm positive and now, she can only be made available to a rescue agency.

The following tidbit was shared about Sugar:

She is VERY sweet....she is a tad shy with dogs, but is not aggressive at all..just needs slow intros. I would guess her at around 2 or so. She is about 45lbs

Another volunteer added that she,

Loves people, belly rubs and rolling in the grass.

If not for the heart-worm diagnosis, Sugar would have been available for adoption on July 20 - today, she needs the help of a rescue agency to save her life. Please take a moment to network this adorable girl's information and help her find the help that she needs to leave this facility.
