Winnie needs Heart Surgery 12 weeks old

  • Name: Winnie
  • Color: Salt & Pepper
  • Size: Extra Small
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Baby

$2,530.00 raised of $2,800.00

Winnie has had such a hard life even though she's only 12 weeks.  After being dumped in an empty lot with her siblings and other abused pups, we found her and we though her pain would be over.

Soon after we found out she has a heart defect and it will take open heart surgery to save her. The good news/silver lining in all of this is that it is one of the most common defects seen and diagnosed in small breed dogs. It  is operable, and fixable ---- Winnie has already begun two heart medications in preparation for surgery and to hopefully help the blood flow and to shrink some of the dilation that has already occured . The initial estimate received today is $3,000 but that is a baseline and we are awaiting a written estimate based on her exam and echo from today . The total cost could change a bit . 

This little girl s such a tiger ! She was barking at all of the dogs today in the office just to let them know that WINNIE IS IN THE HOUSE . The staff fell absolutely in love with her. 

 We are praying that she can beat this , it is still a surgery with risk, but the fact that it can be done gives us so much hope. 

We so hope that our supporters will stand by us and Winnie by donating to her care or purchasing her items from her Wishlist to comfort her.

TY for always being so generous and caring . 

Team TLM

  • Apparently its not enough suffering in her past ---- the fact that she was born on the streets ,likely a product of interbreeding , (thus the heart defect)..... spending her youngest weeks in filth, surrounded by other dogs who were sick and also suffering on the same lot in life in Hialeah. infested with fleas and parasites ......

    We saved as many of them as we could - and Winnie is a lucky star to have ended up with us. Without this, her defect may have never been detected until it was far too late , and there would be no chance for surgery or survival. Its a miracle really that she made it to this point for us to be able to get her the medical attention that she needed , now in preparation for surgery . we cannot let her down. She has never had anyone fight for her , much less provide for her needs . We are 6 days away from Winnies surgery consult - we still are short of our goal for her life saving surgery -

    PLEASE help us to give Winnie this life changing chance..... we cannot let this opportunity slip away ........
