Desi is a new arrival from an animal shelter where his story is a bit confusing. He had been abandoned at a house when everyone moved out, so a sympathetic person took him in but couldn't keep him. At that point it's unclear why the shelter decided not to place him with an interested party; they perhaps suspected the person was part of his abandonment. When rescue assistance was requested, we were pleased to take in this very nice older dog. His age was given as 7 years, and he briefly spent time with two other Dobies, one male and one female, while a kennel was being prepared for him here at the rescue ranch. Though Desi is extremely motivated to bolt from his kennel, we can't assume he would do the same in a happy home environment, but we hope to ensure that he has a secure yard at his new home.
