Kennel cough is a frequent "illness" that dogs get when they transition from shelter to a home. Maybe an upper respiratory infection? Hope all is okay.

Ohhh and I think it's too late, but you want to separate him from your other animals. Kennel cough is contagious.

There are many strains of kennel cough. When I brought my last pup home that was supposedly over it, my dogs came down with kennel cough. Try to keep them separated just in case. Let us know what the vet says.

I never saw green snot with kennel cough...gallons of phlem however. THere are so many respitory illness in shelters. Good vibes and good energies and lots of prayers for a quick recovery. Sorries that is a hard start but your pupper will know how much you care.

Poor guy. Sounds like Beezer when we brought him home and he ended up with kennel cough. And this was after he got vaccinated for it. Luckily Belle didn't get it. But he was on antibiotics for a little bit and we got some pills to relieve his coughing in the meantime and he was good as new.

Hope it's nothing serious.

Waiting to hear.
