Meet Fletcher!

Fletcher was being given away “free to a good home” through a yard sale group on Facebook. DRNA is incredibly thankful to the good Samaritan who scooped him up.

Fletcher is a very special boy who will need a special forever home. Fletcher is blind and takes medicine twice a day to control seizures. He is very cooperative when its time to take his medicine, but it is imperative that he not miss a dose. He came to DRNA overweight and with skin issues. With an improved diet, foster mom is working to improve both. *Please note* - he is not housebroken yet. He is dog friendly and doesn’t initiate play with others, but doesn’t mind when his DRNA foster brother Remington tries to play with him. He is learning to navigate the house and understands “watch out”. He enjoys taking naps on foster mom’s lap. He takes frequent naps and enjoys belly rubs and snoozing on foster mom's lap. He prefers to eat food from his bowl only and will even share his bowl with his friend Hannah. He has learned where foster mom keeps the dog food storage container and sit will nearby and bark to let foster mom know he's hungry (side effect of his meds).

Fletcher is a happy little guy who will make a wonderful addition to a special family.
Fletcher is located in Huntington, WV .
