What's up? My name is Leslie and I recently adopted a heart worm positive Great Pyrenees mix. He's my first dog in about five years and his name is Luca. He's about 1 1/2 years old, but we're not sure. He was originally running feral in Texas before being brought up to NJ. The shelter he was brought to encouraged his adopter to put him down when they realized he was heart worm positive. My boss at the animal hospital I work for convinced the woman to surrender him to her instead. He's been living in the hospital's kennel since October. I've felt connected to him this whole time and finally decided to adopt him.
