  DESCRIPTION:  Zulu is a special guy. This big, handsome boy was picked up as a stray in the south. Although it was highly evident that he needed some help, the shelter staff knew that had an amazing dog on their hands. Zulu has easily won the hearts of everyone who has met him. Recognizing that they simply didn't have the ability to meet Zulu's medical needs, the shelter reached out for rescue help. How could we possibly say no to this guy? Zulu's has bacterial pyoderma. This means his body is suffering from an untreated skin infection. He had sores throughout his body with clusters on his belly, legs, neck, and back. In order to address his skin we did have to sedate and shave some areas. Zulu is now getting bathed every three days and his skin is starting to heal. On top of his skin issues, it was also discovered that Zulu is heartworm positive. Fortunately, his treatment is already moving forward and everything is going well. Zulu will need to take it slow for another month or two; however, he will be back to full strength soon.
