Kingston arrived to Dallas Animal Services as a stray. The good Samaritan who brought him to the shelter had noticed Kingston wandering around the neighborhood for over 5 months. Different neighbors were feeding him, but nobody was taking care of him.
Kingston was malnourished, had mange, and was pretty shutdown. During his time in the shelter, he became increasingly depressed, would not eat or play, and would scratch himself constantly. He was marked as an extreme medical case by animal services. Hearts and Bones stepped in to make sure Kingston would be safe.
Kingston has been diagnosed with a severe mite allergy. He will require lifelong medication to manage his allergies, immunotherapy, and specialized treatment if he has a flare up. If left untreated, he will experience painful swelling of the skin, extreme itchiness, and all-around discomfort.
At only four years of age, Kingston is an incredibly gentle and patient boy. He has been without a loving home and medical treatment for a very long time, and we are thrilled for him heal.
