Meet Mallard! Y'all... this boy is as cute as a baby suckin' on a watermelon on a hot summer's day! Seriously... stop what you're doing and COME MEET MALLARD!!

Have you ever seen a yellow lab body on little basset hound legs? Well now you have. This 2.5 year old boy found his way to HSSM when he was picked up as a stray on April 2nd. And sadly he has sat here waiting day after day while he watches his friends take their freedom walks into their new homes.

What's taking so long?? Mallard was heartworm positive. But guess what? Mallard's heartworm treatment has been COMPLETED by a sweet family who fell in love with Mallard but couldn't adopt him because of their apartment's weigh limit on pets. We already finished Mallard's treatment and he is currently in his foster home.

Mallard is on the shy side and we've noticed lately that he's becoming even more timid which is a sign of shelter stress. We all love this special boy and we want to see him comfortable in a home where he can start coming out of his shell and either stay there all his days or be one step closer to his forever home. If you're interested in meeting Mallard you can contact his foster mom Brittany at (228) 313-7019
