Kiki is a Silky Yorkie who was rescued on July 14th from an Amish puppy mill in Iowa by Bailing Out Benji. Although her actual age is unknown, we would guess her to be about 12 years old. YES, forced to breed repeatedly without proper care or love for 12 years! We have not talked much about her since that day because we had some concerns with her emotional progress and of course her blood work and check-up prior to spaying her.
Our fears became reality when we learned she has a significant heart murmur on both sides and is suspected to be in congestive heart failure.
It was way too risky to perform any procedures on her, so she is back at her foster home resting comfortably.
We are starting her on a medication that is common with beginning stages. As of right now, she is not coughing or exhibiting daily symptoms of heart failure, but we will continue to monitor her and change meds if changes become necessary. She deserves every single day she can get sleeping in a soft bed, eating good food and being loved.
She is a sweet girl and enjoys going outside for short potty breaks, she will even occasionally follow her foster Mom around the yard. She does get a little anxious if she is out of her comfy spot for too long.
We are eventually hoping that we can find a very special someone out there who is willing to take her in, continue her care, give her a safe and cozy place to sleep, and make her feel comfy and loved for whatever time she has left.
Please send precious Kiki good vibes and prayers that she can enjoy a long and happy retirement after the puppy mill industry stole all her good years for their own greed.
