UPDATED BIO 09/06/2011: Zoey is a tiny, adorable 3 lb, 1 year old Yorkie that was surrendered because she has a liver shunt - a disease which can be fatal if not treated properly. She underwent life-saving liver shunt surgery 1 week ago and is recovering nicely. She is a bit underweight and needs to gain at lease 1/2 - 1 lb. Zoey is a typical, happy little Yorkie puppy, who despite undergoing major surgery, wants to play with the other dogs in the house. She is currently using pee pads as well as going outside for potty. She is on a vet prescription diet which she will most likely have to be on the rest of her life, but Zoey likes her food, so that is good news! Zoey will not be able to be adopted for at least 7 more weeks. Zoey is being fostered in West Palm Beach. Due to Zoey's small size, she can not be adopted into households with children under 16 nor with dogs larger than 15 lbs.
8/26/11 ZOEY(FL) our latest rescue who is a very sick little 2.9 lb, 11 month female yorkie. Zoey was diagnosed with a liver shunt last week and her owner wasn't prepared to take on the responsibility of treating or financial burden of repairing the shunt. She was rescued yesterday by our volunteer in CA who received an SOS from the owner that Zoey was deteriorating quickly and he picked her up and brought her to a hospital to be stabilized. Zoey did well overnight and will remain till Saturday in the hospital before being transported by a volunteer to Florida on Sunday to undergo surgery on Monday with Dr. Hay who operated on Mojo! She will not be ready for adoption for at least 8 weeks. We will update you once we get to know more about her as she recovers.
