Hudson - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted from PAWS Humane Society, Peoria, IL

Hudson - posted 09/22/2014

From karen of Aledo, IL

We found a number of dogs on petfinder and drove to Peoria Paws shelter to see them.

His name was not Hudson at the time, but he was a shy and quiet, beautiful dog who just looked at us calmly. When my son, Jonathan, was approved to adopt him, they discovered that he had a stage 2 heart murmur, and did not suggest that we take him.

I spoke to my local vet, Dr. Wickes from Aledo, IL. He himself has a heart murmur! He said to adopt him and bring him in for a checkup.

I have had him checked every six months for the last four years, and he is still very healthy. He loves to take walks and play fetch. He is a sweet and loving dog, and we are so happy we found him.
