Desi comes to us through a partnership with a rural shelter down south. He was surrendered to the shelter in horrific condition. Desi was severely emaciated and weak. After receiving veterinary care, Desi was found to be in the advanced stages of heartworm disease and in respiratory distress. The cardiology team has prescribed him medications and strict crate rest as he gears up for treatment for this deadly disease. Desi is a calm, loving, and obedient boy who is taking his crate rest in stride. He loves the foster children in his home and adores being the center of attention.
