Description:

Meet Dr. Pepper!  

Dr Pepper is part of the "Soda Pop" litter of 9 that arrived with their mom last April 2018.  Early on it was noticed that something was amiss and a cardiac ultrasound confirmed that Dr. Pepper needed to have heart surgery so that he could live a long, happy and healthy life.

Surgery has been completed by the U of M and he is feeling SO MUCH better! He will need to be kept on daily medications. Progress checks should be done every 6 months right now.  

This "little" guy is a playful, happy and is full of life!  He would do best in a fenced yard as he tends to want to follow his nose everywhere he goes and he does have a high prey drive. He is often found treeing squirrels! 

Dr. Pepper is 70lbs of energy and can be a bull in a china shop  He sometimes doesn't realize how big he is, so a home with real young children may not be the best match for him. Until he is finished growing they will not be able to determine if he will need future surgery or not.

PETFINDER VIEWERS:  Find our applications at www.midwestanimalrescue.org

*The pet you are viewing is a rescued pet which is most often from an animal control facility and does not come with a pedigree. The breed(s) listed are our best guess and are in no way guaranteed. Sometimes the pets appear to be a particular breed(s) in the pictures we receive from our rescue partners and when they arrive we are surprised to see an entirely different breed(s) in person!  If you choose to DNA test your adopted pet, test results may vary from company to company and our breed guess may not be reflected in those results as it is just that, our best guess. It is with deep longing that we wish there was a breed called "cute" as we believe all of our dogs would fall under this new breed classification!
