Dogs rescued (or bought) from puppy mills can have some health problems...giardia and kennel cough are common. So if he hasn't gotten an all clear yet, be sure to be on the lookout for any symptoms.

I'm so glad he has found a wonderful new home!
Very sound advice

All things considered I say he's a trooper.
I think giardia is pretty contagious... Did you check with the vet about whether you should be treating Leyla too?

Giardia is pretty common in dogs from puppy mills.

I don't know any more about where he came from. I just remember seeing him and the cavaliers that he was rescued with on HALO's facebook page. They are adorable too . I would talk to the foster mom and see if she could tell you any more.

Glad he is doing pretty well. How are the two getting along now?

I did. I have to take Theo back in 3 weeks for a follow-up on the conjunctivitis and i think I'll take Leyla's fecal sample as well so they can test it. in the meantime I've been obsessive about keeping him and his area clean.

they are getting along famously! only problem is that he's only 3 lbs and leyla's 8 so she wears him out!! especially with him being sick. So i keep a close eye when they're playing and rescue him when i see leyla's being too rough.
