"Nellie is a sweet little puppy, but at just 3 months old she has already had a tough life. After Nellie made the trip from Georgia, along with her 6 brothers and sisters, Northeast Animal Shelter's vet noticed an unusual sound from her heart — and immediately scheduled an appointment with a cardiac specialist.
We hoped for the best, but the specialist confirmed that this little pup has a life-threatening heart defect that is restricting the flow of blood through her heart. If untreated, Nellie could succumb to heart failure in as little as 2 years.
Please donate now to help us give Nellie the surgery and ongoing attention she needs to live a happy life.
