Meet Roberto! This ~8-10 year old fella is looking for a special home. Roberto is such a friendly, outgoing guy–quick to make friends, both human and canine alike. We noticed that when Roberto got excited, he tended to cough. We thought, is it kennel cough, collapsed trachea, something else? We have since found out that the cause of his cough is, unfortunately, that he has an enlarged heart and congestive heart failure. This means his lifespan is predicted to be quite shortened, potentially having less than a year. But Roberto is a happy, spunky, extra-friendly dog who is so full of life! We think he deserves to be loved and in a home for the rest of his days. He does not have any painful symptoms at this time, and as his condition progresses, there are medication options for managing further symptoms. Can you help us find a home for this special dog? There is no fee for Roberto’s perfect family to take him home.
