Finnegan is a sweet and fun loving fellow. Don't tell him he was just diagnosed with a grade 5 heart murmur and severe pulmonary stenosis. He has plans and a life he wants to get to. Dr Rupp indicated that due to the severity of his condition that medications and surgery will be his best approach. None of this can happen until he reaches at least four months of age and gets through a major growth spurt, which often can make congenital defects worsen. So during this time exercise restriction will be provided by his foster family. Then when funds are raised to cover the $3500 for a valvuloplasty at the UF at Gainesville, Finnegan will have the chance to recover and be a normal boy just like Pinocchio and run and play. He truly is the heart of Big Dog Ranch Rescue and why we all do it for the dogs and puppies too. And we can't do this all without your support and dedication.
