Hi, my name is Cupcake! I am a snuggly, playful puppy that loves to chase my little human friend around (he's 3 years old). I was born with a severe heart defect, but it doesn't phase me at this time. I traveled to the U of MN with my aunties to see a board certified cardiologist. The doctor confirmed I was born with a heart defect, severe subaortic stenosis. Unfortunately, there is no fix, just medicine to help regulate my heart. I shouldn't participate in major cardio activities but I can live my best puppy life.
I currently live with other dogs, cats and kids. I love it! I also get to go to work with my foster mom and I snuggle in my doggie bed and play with my toys. Her co-workers give me all the loves. I also am kenneled when I can't be monitored, to help keep me learn potty training and so I don't try to chew on something I shouldn't.
I am a very special pup that would love to find my forever family so I can live every day to its fullest.
Currently, I am on an oral medicine daily, for life.
Dogs with severe aortic stenosis unfortunately have a lifespan typically around 4-5 years of age.
