Hetty is a 9 month old female Cockapoo. She is a new dog we have in who is a very complex medical dog but we are praying we can find the right home for her. Hetty came into us a medical case from our vets. She has many medical issues and has spent a lot of her life in a crate before coming to us missing out on lots of socialisation.

Despite this, Hetty has quickly learnt how fun life is. She loves her walks, she loves her doggy play friends and she is like any normal cheeky pup in the home. She is the sweetest little girl, who steals the hearts of all who meet her. Hetty will chase cats so a cat free home will suit her best.
Hetty’s medical problems are extensive and she will not be insurable, she therefore needs a home with someone with the ability to fund her future vet care. Hetty has a severe heart murmur, this has been investigated by a specialist cardiac vet. Her valves are not fully effective and she has a hole in her heart. The specialist says that currently her hearts overall function is sufficient and she doesn’t need any treatment but this may change as she ages.
Hetty also has mild renal dysplasia found on a scan of her abdomen. This can cause her to have a weak bladder at times. Again, her kidney function is currently sufficient and stable and she does not need any medication but again, there is a chance this may change as she ages.
Hetty also has bad joints. Our vet thinks this is due to a combination of poor diet and lack of exercise and she is now on high quality puppy food and joint supplements to help her. After some play sessions she can limp and this is treated with 1 off doses of anti-inflammatory medicine.
Hetty has had ear infections which have been treated with drops, this may continue to flare up and need further treatment in future. She is also on a supplement called yuderm to help her skin.
We understand that Hetty’s list of health issues are long and may shorten her life span and this will put a lot of people off but she is currently stable and may stay this way for many years to come. She is happy in foster but we believe there may be someone out there who is able to see past her health problems and know that she is worth a chance. You can’t help but love her and seeing her enjoy life to the full is wonderful.
Hetty is in foster on the Wirral, she is spayed, chipped, vaccinated, wormed and deflead.
