After Covid exacerbated the wait to get a cardiology appointment, we finally received an evaluation of Fitz’s condition and his prognosis. Unfortunately, his valve defect is too severe and he is not a candidate for surgical correction. As a result he cannot tolerate surgery to be neutered either.
Amazingly, handsome Fitz is generally symptom free at this time. This could end at any time though.
He is beloved by his foster family and will spend the his remaining time with them.
How do you spell “stunning?” If you think it starts with F and ends with Z, you’d be right because it’s Fitz, FBRN’s newest foster Frenchie in California. At only 8 months old, this gorgeous blue-eyed wonder was tearfully surrendered due to numerous pre-existing issues. He is deaf, intact (not neutered), not quite potty trained, and has a suspected grade 4 heart murmur. But if cuteness counted for anything, this little tyke would live forever!
Fitz is definitely not short on good looks or puppy energy. He is the sweetest little peanut who also seems to have been socialized really well. He knows how to fetch, walks really well on the leash and will be working on potty training and basic obedience while in foster. And we can’t forget that all important trip to the vet to evaluate his heart. Fitz won’t need any funds for makeup due to his natural beauty and permanent guyliner, but he’ll definitely need some donations for his veterinary workup.
