This precious boy was not expected to make it to 6 months of age.
Born Jan 2014, he is now 16 months old. His heart did not
develop correctly, but aside from being very small, he looks and
acts 100% healthy. He is going to beat the odds! In 2003
I rescued an ASD with a bad heart. A 'specialty vet'
said she would not live to see 6 months so not bother to spay her.
Well, she just celebrated her 12th birthday!!! This is the
same specialty vet who saw Hercules. Where there is a will to
live and love from family, there are miracles. He is on
3 medications which allow him to be as active and happy as any
healthy dog his age. He is learning to walk on leash and
really enjoying those walks. Learning not to fear the car
rides. He is very sweet and affectionate. He just wants to be
cuddled and be loved. He would be great with respectful
children or adults of any age. He won't be an endurance runner
companion, but will fit into a normally active family just fine.
He is good with other dogs when properly introduced and confident
they won't hurt him. He knows he is a little guy for a Pyr.
He is with Xena, his sister, but they do not need to stay together.
There will be some security issues to work on when they are
separated, but he will adjust quickly with a positive atmosphere.
