Louis has gone to his new forever home with a wonderful family in MD.


UPDATE: 4/18/08 Louis has been diagnosed with Canine Dermatomyocitis.  This is a genetic, non contagious disease that afflicts mostly collies and shelties.  It is not curable, but it is treatable, and Louis has begun treatment.  We wish to thank those who are donating towards his vet bills. We still have a road ahead of us, but we are making progress.


Dermatomyositis (DM)

 Nearly two years ago, Louis came to the Harford County Humane Society as a rescue from an animal hoarder. Louis, along with 76 other animals from the same home were cared for by the Humane Society staff and volunteers until permanent homes could be found. Louis was adopted, but unfortunately, he was returned recently because his family was moving and couldn't take him along. We have taken him into our rescue. Louis is a little sad to look at -- his hair is thin and the rear of his body is almost hairless. After at least two years of him suffering we are determined to find the cause and help him heal. It may be a while before he is ready to go to a new home, but we will do all we can to help him. This will involve blood work, testing, and skin biopsies. Please consider donating to help us help Louis. Pictures and bio will be updated as we progress through the testing and treatment. Louis is about 9 years old. Thank you!!
