General Question

This is a question for the breeders. If you were selling a puppy that was 8 weeks old and found out it had a bad heart murmer and the buyer decided they didn't want the puppy, what would you do with the puppy?

I ask the question because of Jammies. When she was 8 weeks old, we found out that she had heart problems, but I was so in love with her already, that I still wanted her. The breeder said we did not have to take her and did not charge us for her. I am very good friends with the breeder.

We are taking Jammies back to Ohio State University next month to have her rechecked. I am praying for an improvement with her status!! Her heart sounds better to me as far as rythm goes, but I'm not a cardiologist. Please, please keep Jammies in your prayers. She is my velcro dog and the love of my life (don't tell dh). I will keep you posted, and I sure am praying for good news. She is the sweetest little thing...well, when she isn't pestering our sheltie!

I would keep the puppy forever- or until a perfect family came along-
This is what happened with my Mouse. I believe there is a 'perfect' dog out there for everyone-

Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~

I know you said the post was for breeders to answer, but I just had to add my thoughts for your Jammies to have a good check up next month.

I've been praying for Jammies from the start and will continue to do so. Actually, I'm praying for a miracle and a wonderful prognosis. Let us know.

Your breeder did the right thing. Thank you for giving her the love that she deserves. We (breeders) appreciate when a person can open their heart to a dog that has a health problem. I'm sure it is hard for you especially when it is time for checkups. Try to remember that 90% of heart murmurs will stay the same grade as when they are diagnosed. I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

I hope Jammies recheck goes well. When my Papillon was a puppy he was diagnosed with a heart murmur & it eventually went away.
