Hondo joined the rescue with five of his siblings after we transferred them in from another rescue. At his vet exam, it was discovered he had a Grade 5 heart murmur, so we set up an appointment with the cardiology team at WSU. Unfortunately, it was found that Hondo has a tricuspid valve malformation. There is not a surgical option at this time, so he will be on medical management to help improve quality of life and prevent heart failure as long as possible. Sadly, he will have a shortened life span of maybe 1-3 years. Hondo is an awesome pup with a great personality, and we're hoping to find a wonderful home for him that will give him a wonderful life for the time he has. The adoption fee for Hondo will be waived, but an adopter should expect medication of around $100/month and ultrasounds to monitor his condition. Please fill out an adoption application below if you can provide Hondo with his forever home.
