Desi ~ ADOPTED
Desi's skin condition is completely cleared up! He
no longer needs weekly baths and all of his hair has
Desi is getting more and more comfortable outside.
He goes outside all by himself and is beginning to
ask to go out and hang out in the yard. While in the
yard he explores everything out there and is getting
curious about what is happening in the neighborhood.
Desi has special needs and will need a special family to
adopt him. Desi had a very tough life before he came into
rescue. Desi will need special care for his skin condition,
and he will need to be on Revolution for the rest of his
life as his heartworm and flea control. Desi will also need
a very patient home that will give him time to trust new
people and his new surroundings.
Desi was rescued from a puppy mill/hoarding situation on
April 17th 2011. When Desi first arrived into rescue he
had 85% hair loss and was covered in sores and scabs. After
seeing a vet it was discovered he had a yeast infection
on his whole body. Desi had been receiving 2-3 baths a week
to help clear up his skin issue. He has been so good about
letting his foster Mom bathe him and scrub his medicated
shampoo into his skin. He never complains.
This is what Desi looked like when
he first arrived:
This is what Desi looks like now!
Here at his foster home we call him Desi, I told him the
Desirable part will come when his forever family comes along.
His foster family has had the chance to watch this very
sick and scared boy learn that people are not so bad and
that the world is not that scary.
Desi can be an only dog or live with another dog. He is
now living with 6 other dogs and 3 cats. Desi will chase
the cats be he has never hurt any of them; he finds it really
fun to play chase. Desi doesn't play with other dogs,
but he lives peacefully in the same house. If you think
you and your family are the right choice for Desi please
continue reading all about him.
Since coming into rescue Desi has had a lot of firsts in
his life. He is still afraid of meeting new people, but
he gets braver every time someone new comes to visit. His
forever family will need to understand that they will not
see how silly and goofy he is when he first meets them,
and maybe not for quite some time. His new family will need
to be very patient with him and let him come to them when
he is ready.
He is learning to walk on a leash and has made it down
the street several houses before needing to head back home.
He gets little more curious each time he goes out. He is
learning to play with toys; his favorites are soft toys
that can be ripped apart.
When Desi is truly content,
his tongue sticks out. :)
Desi likes to hang out in his crate with the door open.
He has learned that dog beds are great for napping on and
bones are great for chewing on. Even thought this is Desi's
first home, he has never marked in the house or destroyed
Desi is turning into a bit of a nudge, he can't get
enough pets from his foster family and will stick his nose
under your arm and give it a little poke to let you know
he wants more.
Desi sleeps in his crate at night and never makes a peep.
In the morning he now gets so excited to see people he does
a little dance and will jump around the room when he is
Are you the special, patient family that this very special
