Baby Josie is looking for a very special home.
She is a beautiful, well-behaved little girl who has been diagnosed with a congenital heart condition.
At 18 weeks, she is showing no signs of the condition and plays just like any other puppy. The ultrasound confirmed a defective mitral valve. The prognosis is that she will live approximately half the life of a normal dog her size 12-15 years). Eventually her heart will become enlarged and she will begin to show symptoms which will require attention.
We'd like Josie to have a full life and know the love of a human family during the time she has on this earth.
Any special person who is interested in giving this special little girl a loving home will be able to speak with our consulting vet to understand the details of her condition.
Josie is a sweet, sweet pup and we hope that someone can find it in his or her heart to fall in love with her.
If you'd like to meet this sweet girl, send an e-mail to [email protected]
