Leila is just the sweetest, most loving little girl! She smothers your face with kisses and loves to be held in your lap for petting . She deserves a life full of love and hugs, dog bones and long walks!
During her initial veterinary examination, it was discovered that this tiny pup everyone thought was about 12 weeks old, was really about 5 or possibly even 6 months old and had a stage 5 heart murmur! Further examinations by veterinary cardiologists revealed a severe congenital heart defect. Leila was diagnosed with Valvular Pulmonic Stenosis , and she would need surgery as soon as possible - a procedure called a "Balloon Valvuloplasty" to correct this disorder.
Estimated costs for Leila's surgery, hospital expenses and follow-up care are expected to be many thousands of dollars. With this life saving surgery, Leila can expect to lead a fairly normal life with maybe just a few restrictions on her exercise. All Shepherd Rescue does not have the funds to pay for this urgently needed procedure. We need you to help us to help the pretty little puppy with the broken heart.
We will do what it takes to help this girl to live as normal a life as possible. Leila is in her foster home and loving it! She loves her big, big German Shepherd foster brother and foster sister - and enjoys trying to get the upper hand - always from both! Her foster mom reports that aside from tiring easily, Leila is a typical playful and loving puppy - with a cute personality...and she is waiting for her forever home.
