Introducing Rigby - Rigby is a one year old male yorkie that weighs 6-7 lbs and was born on 10/13/14. He required Heart Surgery which was performed on January 28th, 2015 because of a birth defect. He was also born with a deformed leg.
His repaired heart is working well but he was left with a moderate amount of residual pulmonary arterial hypertension which requires daily meds.
He has now been neutered but his deformed leg cannot be repaired or removed. His leg doesn't bother him, there is no pain involved and he gets around very well.
He is a very sweet boy, affectionate, small dog friendly and active. It is just not advisable for him to engage in any very high energy activity.
The heart specialist said she would be happy to speak to anyone who might be interested in adopting this boy to explain what minor limitations he may have so that an informed decision could be made. Rigby has been with us for almost a year. He desperately craves a family of his very own. Would you be that special person?
