Hi, my name is Claire! I am the teeny, tiniest Dogo you will ever see! I was rescued with my three siblings and parents from a severe neglect situation. I was just 23#! But don't worry, I'm happy and loved now in my foster home! I love to play with my Dobie foster sister and jump off things, just to keep my foster mom on her toes! I am a happy go-lucky puppy that loves to play and zoomie but also snuggle in a warm blanket or nap in the sun! I turned one year old in October but act and look much younger, probably because I was not given proper nutrition as a puppy.
I have seen a specialist veternarian called a Cardiologist and have had many tests. The doctors tell me I have a congenital heart defect that will need to be corrected. I know my foster mom and the DC Dogos team are working hard to get me into the appropriate interventionalist to help with this. Because of this heart defect, I likely will never grow as big as my brothers and sisters or other Dogos. I will also likely be limited to how much hard exercise I get a day, just to make sure my heart can keep up!
I am now 30# and sure am happy. I will not be up for adoption until my treatment plan is in place. I love my foster mama and she loves me so it's all good! Please keep checking in on my progress. I might be the world's first pocket Dogo!
