S. Simons Island, Georgia                                   

 

 

Welcome in, Mickey! We just sprung Mickey about of Georgia shelter after a serious of very unfortunate and sad events - first, Mickey was dumped at a shelter by his family, then he was adopted and within hours returned back to the shelter. Thankfully the shelter agreed to then release him into our care so we could get him into a loving, experienced foster home and just let him relax and settle in. You’re safe and in good hands now, everything’s going to be okay 💜 Mickey is being fostered in St. Simons Island, Georgia.

UPDATE JANUARY 2, 2022: Being fostered in St. Simons Island, Georgia has its perks 🏝 Mickey is ringing in the New Year with a little sun ☀️ and sea 🌊… and a good cardiology report 📝
Mickey had a full cardiac evaluation and echocardiogram after a heart murmur was detected at his intake vetting. While he does have mitral valve insufficiency/ regurgitation (MVD) like most older adult Cavaliers which causes the audible heart murmur, all his parameters are within normal limits meaning there is no enlargement and no need to start any heart medications at this time. That is wonderful news for this 9 year old boy 🎉 Of course, Mickey should remain under the care of a cardiologist and receive follow up echocardiogram scans so any progression of the mitral valve disease can be best monitored and managed.
With this good report, Mickey has been cleared to undergo his dental cleaning which is scheduled for January 12th and then will become available for adoption shortly after 💜
