Desi is pleased to announce that he is officially heart worm free. He battled for months beating this deadly disease. Now he awaits a committed forever home. Desi is a nice boy who may go as an only dog or to a home with a laid back female dog his size. He is a gentleman on leash and a lover boy in the home.
Desi is being hospitalized while he is going through his final two heart worm treatments. Desi had an advanced infestation of heart worms, which were also present in his pulmonary arteries. Desi was in grave condition. Our little fighter isn’t out of the woods just yet. Please hold good thoughts for Desi and the skilled team of cardiologists who are fighting to keep him alive.
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 heart worm 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.
