I am heartworm negative. I had a bad case of heartworms which when discovered the UCAPS staff raised the funds to have me treated. Now they buy my medication....I don't ever want to go through that again. I am leashed trained for the most part. I get excited sometimes and pull a little. Be stern with me and I will listen. I want to make people happy. I have gone many times to the nursing homes to help cheer up residents. I have great potential and need a chance to shine!
