• Callen is temporarily unavailable
CALLEN, approximately 10 years old, is a tiny Border Collie with a big problem… heart worm disease… so we have a three to six month road ahead to hopefully bring him back to good health. His super sweet nature is taking all the change in stride and with a little wag of his tail and a soft lick on the arm, he quickly won our hearts. We can’t wait to help this good-natured guy realize that life can be tons of fun again. He was a stray in Mississippi who was in dire need of rescue so Glen Highland gladly stepped up. He’s very very exhausted and about to undergo xrays to sort out how bad his heartworm is but judging by his demeanor, it is not good. Any heartworm treatment poses a risk and literally the cure can cause death so we hope he sails through as easily as possible.
We felt this little guy deserved a special name to capture his nature: Callen is of Gaelic origin and means "Brave Little Battler."
Update 9/25/20: Sweet boy Callen is about to start heartworm treatment on 10/5 but it's going to be the slow-kill method, not the traditional series of shots because his liver blood values are less than normal. The ultrasound garnered no answers so it's possible the heartworm disease is already impacting his liver. The Slow-Kill method uses Advantage Multi monthly for at least 10 months so this little guy has quite a haul ahead but we knew that already so on we go... Senior Mandy at age 15 has taken handsome Callen under her proverbial paw and he loves that (see below)...we'll be carefully watching his progress since this is a systemic disease that once worms are killed, can cause dangerous blood clots. Callen will be heavily restricted in exercise for almost a year.
