Stats: 8-10 years old, male
Intake: Nov 13, 2020
Adoption Fee: TBD
We have a special introduction for a senior boy who joined us yesterday. His name is Canelo and he's an 8-10 year old who was surrendered to a shelter due to his living conditions.
Sadly, he has Heartworms and they've already started affecting his body to the point he has a persistent cough and wheezing sound when he breathes . The shelter reached out asking if we could help him and we are glad we're able to. We took him in with the expectation he may very well be a hospice foster, but he deserves to live out whatever time he has left in the comforts of a home being spoiled with all kinds of love and the best care.
He literally went from the shelter to the vet's office for a full exam, bloodwork, and x-rays of his heart and lungs. The vet said thankfully his x-rays aren't as bad as they could be and his bloodwork is pretty good overall! He was started on several different meds to try and combat the inflammation in his lungs caused by the Heartworms which is leading to the bad coughing/wheezing. He's also starting on meds immediately to combat the awful Heartworms that are wreaking havoc on his system. Despite the battle he's been waging with his health, he is the sweetest boy who still has some pep in his step and a smile on his face! He'll be with us a while to safely get through the Heartworm treatment, but we are hopeful he'll get his forever home as the vet said he is not a hospice case at this point!
