Meet Shadowfax, the charming and spirited pup who's turning his foster home into a house of love and joy while on the road to recovery from heartworm. This dashing canine isn't just a pretty face-he's a tail-wagging, couch-potatoing, porch-gazing bundle of affection who loves nothing more than cuddling up with his human friends. Shadowfax has a heart as big as his playful spirit, and he's quickly mastering his manners, proving that he's more than just a pretty wag.

While he's still learning not to jump for joy (literally), his eagerness to please and gentle nature make him an ideal companion. Whether he's lounging on the couch, taking in the sights from the porch, or happily greeting you with his trademark head nudges for pets, Shadowfax is a delightful blend of sweet and silly. He's ready to trot into a forever home that appreciates his charm and is up for a few adventures once he's fully healed. So, if you're looking for a furry friend who's as loving as he is patient, and as playful as he is polite, Shadowfax is the perfect pup to fill your home with smiles and snuggles.
