In search of a loving SPECIAL NEEDS permanent home. This handsome boy's name is Smokey. Although he is only four years old, and full of energy, he has an underlying heart condition. He has a disease called HCM that causes the heart muscle to thicken and eventually fail. To try to keep his heart working well as long as possible, he needs to be medicated every day with a tiny piece of pill in the morning and evening. (He will also need a yearly visit with the cardiologist for an echocardiogram.) Even with this medication, his heart will one day fail. He could realistically get anywhere from months to years of good quality life. He needs an understanding special needs home that will give him the extra care and attention he needs/craves; one that accepts it is the quality of time not the quantity that makes life worthwhile. He is a very sweet boy, he just wants to be your one and only. His only activity restriction is to avoid high intensity situations. Please reach out if you can open your home to this handsome boy. Smokey wants to live his best life and not languish in a cage.
