Male Age: 6 months
This is a long overdue update on Walden...after many months of recovering we could see he just seemed a little off. Sometimes high levels of ammonia in the blood can cause a dog to not act quite right. Our suspicions were right and another small shunt was found by the surgeons. Unfortunately, it's in a very tricky location and surrounded by scar tissue. They were not able to get to it to close this one up. This means Walden will be on a low protein diet and a supplement for life. He doesn't know any of this and we haven't told him! He's a happy fun loving Yorkie pup! He absolutely loves other small dogs! We will only place him in a home that is willing to adopt two or has another playful pup. Walden loves people but he does not love sitting still with you! We've worked on it and it has become apparent that he prefers only being held on his terms. He is by no means aggressive in any way....just very antsy and will jump from you if he feels confined. This could be just his personality or he's just an "off" pup. He is house-trained to pee pad and will go outside if taken.

Walden and Siri have become pretty bonded while recovering in the foster home; and while they’d both be “ok” in a home with other small playful dogs our first choice would be for them to find a home together. They could still go to a home with other small playful dogs or even an older dog that isn’t playful since they’d have each other.
Walden is ready for his forever home! He has a clean bill of health and is neutered and up to date on all vetting. He’s grown some and weighs about 4lbs. at a year old! He could still use some filling out. He needs an experienced small dog home with another small playful dog. He is pee pad trained but will need to learn leash walks and pottying outside. He is high energy after being cooped up recovering and needs to be watched carefully so he’s not jumping from furniture or even arms. He will not be placed in a home with children due to this.
When it rains it pours! We received another emergency call about a sick 6-month-old male puppy who needed rescue and immediate vetting. We jumped in the car to get him and took him straight to Tufts. With his symptoms we highly suspect another liver shunt. Dr Rozanski at Tufts is currently running diagnostics to find out what is going on with him. He is very thin, no appetite and his head is bobbing a little.
Please keep this little guy in your thoughts and please consider making a donation to help with our vetting expenses. We really could use your support right now. Between Remy, Thoreau and now this little guy we have named him “Walden”. We have been hit hard with medical bills. Thank you!
