Dog with heart problems ready for adoption
WESTBROOK (WGME) – There will be plenty of animals up for adoption during the pet food drive on Tuesday.
One dog, that will be ready for its forever home, is Yuko.
He is currently at the Animal Refuge League in Westbrook.
He is part of a litter of puppies that were found abandoned in Puerto Rico in March.
Yuko's foster mom noticed an irregular heart beat as well as fatigue.
They diagnosed Yuko with a birth defect of the heart called PDA.
He's since undergone life-saving surgery.
He'll be ready for adoption Friday.
