Zac (now Louis) came to us through a collaboration with Bissell Pet Foundation in 2021. He was heartworm positive but was still so loving and happy to meet anyone and everyone. His adopters sent us this update on how he is doing now:

I wanted to share an update on DDR alum Louis (previously Zac). His Gotcha Day is August 14th, so we’re coming up on one year together. It’s been an amazing one! Louis is now heartworm free and getting more and more confident every day. He loves snuggling on the couch, french fries, making new friends at the dog park, and sticking his butt up in the air when he wants some scratches!

Here are some pictures of Louis living his best life.
