Please note: The dogs in ODH's Final Refuge care are not adoptable due to medical reasons and all are in permanent homes. Your sponsorship supports the veterinary expenses for these dogs - and we thank you!
Pippin spent some time in a big shelter, very thin and not much interested in eating, with a loud heart murmur but a great attitude – their vets were stumped and asked ODH to take him in. The cardiologist found that his heart function was good despite the murmur, so our vet proceeded with an extensive dental procedure. Having a more comfortable mouth, plus being in a really happy home with a very good dog buddy, seemed to get him started back toward eating better and gaining weight.
He’s become a lively, active little fellow who enjoys his life tremendously and has a great personality. And a darn cute little guy too!
