  ZOLTAN  Male, 12 years old.  Came to QBSDR after both parents passed away. Is one of those guys that steals hearts, spreads smiles, and always finds things to be grateful for, even if it’s just chillin in someone’s lap.  He is a hefty boy that has some additional weight to lose to ease the arthritis in his left knee and hip dysplasia. Recently had a large lipoma on his right abdomen removed which unfortunately tested positive for Soft Cell Sarcoma.
