About this Dog

Eros first came in as a stray on 2/2016.Then he was adopted 5/2016. He was picked up as a stray again on 7/2018. That time he was reclaimed by his owner, but his story isn't one of those happily ever after stories.On 2/15/2020 his owner returned him to the shelter. They said he chased cars.Eros is a super sweet dog. He loves to be with people and he is dog friendly, too. We hope to find a good home for him this time. A home that doesn't leave him outside to get into mischief!Unfortunately, he is HW positive. He has been on the slow kill heartworm protocol since 2/2020. He should be negative soon.Terrier, Pit Bull/ Mix, Liver/ White/ , Medium 56.00 pound5y 8m 5d, DOB: 2/4/2015, Currently Altered: YesMaleYoung Adult (1-3 Years)Collars: / , Bitten: No Bite History    The stray hold, at the Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter, is 5 days.  That allows owners a fair amount of time to come looking for their pets.  On the sixth day, the animal becomes property of the Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter and is offered for adoption.  An animal may be pre-adopted, however, if the owner comes forward, within the 5 day stray hold, the animal goes back to the owner.  The adoption fee is refunded at that time.   TSCHS Adoption Procedure   Adoption Fees: Adoption fee includes spay or neuter, current (age appropriate)vaccinations, a microchip and a free 30 day pet insurance policy, provided by 24 PetWatch.
