Forever Fostered by the McGinnis Family!

Rowdy was purchased as a young puppy from a breeder. Within a week and at his first vet visit, his owner found he had a heart condition and didn’t want him anymore. SCGSR stepped up to the plate for Rowdy, hoping he had an operable condition we could have surgically repaired. After visits to our vet and a cardiologist and many tests, the cardiologist diagnosed an enlarged heart, and a faulty, leaking and stenotic aorta, making his condition inoperable, and he had only months to live. The cardiologist believes he had an untreated infection as a tiny baby. A lovely foster family stepped up to take Rowdy in as a forever foster and give him a normal, happy life. In the midst of our sadness we found a miracle for Rowdy, thanks to the open hearts and generosity of his foster family. Months later Rowdy continues to think he’s a normal puppy, he is on medication that helps but he still tires easily. He is loved and happy until he’s called home to the bridge.
