Meet Fiona 2
Fiona was abandoned at the Long Beach Animal Shelter by her previous owner when they found out she was pregnant and decided they could not take care of her anymore. She is a young cocker spaniel with the most beautiful eyes and big soft ears. She was filthy, matted and very pregnant when we rescued her. At Fiona's first vet visit we learned that she has a severe heart murmur. Further diagnostics and echocardiogram discovered severe valvular pulmonic stenosis, which is a rare congenital defect causing obstruction to the blood flow out of the pulmonary arteries. We were not sure if she was going to be ok giving birth, but she gave birth to 7 precious puppies and was a great mom to them. Fiona's prognosis is guarded as she is at risk for developing congestive heart failure and she already had a couple of fainting episodes when she overexerted herself.
Fiona is a young, sweet, happy girl who loves long walks, and chasing butterflies in the yard. It’s hard for her to stay calm all of the time as all she wants to do is play. She will be in medication for the rest of her life and will probably have a shorter lifespan than normal… but she is so sweet.
This dog is not available to an out of the area adoption because of difficulty to follow up and how stressful it would be for her travel. If you do not live within a 2 hr drive of Orange County, please do not apply.
If you are interested in adopting one of our rescues, please visit our main website for adoption procedures at www.pupsandpals.net and then fill out our application. We do not have a shelter/kennel, our pets are fostered all over LA and Orange County.
This pet is vaccinated, microchipped, and has had a brief temperament evaluation to help us determine what type of a home he/she would thrive in. She is not able to go through anesthesia for spay due to her condition and will be one of the very few dogs that will be adopted unspayed.
Please note that we put lots of time and effort to make sure our pets are ready to be someone's perfect pet before they go home.... and to make sure that we will have the best possible match for this pet we do require an : application, interview, adoption fee and in some case a home check.
Listed for adoption: 9/23/23
Adoption fee: To be discussed, we do want to make sure you can provide her daily medication and care.
PLEASE DO NOT call or email to see if a pet is available. We update our pages daily so if he/she is pictured here in the available dogs section, we are accepting applications at this time.
