About Dexter

Dexter came to Forever Husky after a prolonged incarceration due to being “evidence” in an animal abuse and neglect case in Kentucky. He had advanced heart worm disease, full of flea bites and malnourished. Dexter was approximately 15 yrs old when he came to us and his rough life had also taken a toll on his body. He had significant arthritis and was deaf but despite all of these things he had a strong will to live and fought a good fight for 4 months. During that time he underwent heart worm treatment and put on some weight. He loved to go outside and walk with his foster brother and sister and spend his days sleeping on a comfy bed in the sun, far more comfortable than the concrete he had known most of his life. Sadly, Dexter’s body was not strong enough to carry him through but we know that he was happy for the first time in his life and died surrounded by people who loved and cared about him. RIP sweet boy!
