Welcome Morty! The day Morty was rescued from the deplorable conditions of a puppy mill, this little Shih Tzu mix found himself nestled safely in the arms of one of our exceptional kennel managers who noticed immediately that this adorable dog was struggling to breathe.
An x-ray later confirmed that Morty had pneumonia and was started on a course of medications to fight the infection while continuously monitored by our veterinarians. A CT scan soon revealed that little Morty has a rare disorder in which air becomes trapped inside one of his lung lobes. Due to his condition, Morty will always be susceptible to upper respiratory infections and pneumonia which will require hospitalization and oxygen therapy. But luckily Morty can breathe easy now that he has YOU, our Pet Sponsors, to make sure he has all the medical attention he needs to live a happy life.
Morty is a lovable dog with lots of energy. Thanks to your support, Animal League will be able to care for him in our Sponsor Program for the rest of his life.
