Little Marilyn

Little Marilyn is a precious 12 week old Chihuahua baby born with a severe heart defect. Veterinarians have confirmed a diagnosis per Marilyn’s recent echocardiogram – Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) with a grade 6 (of 6) heart murmur. She literally vibrates!

PDA is a congenital disease which requires immediate surgical intervention.

Marilyn’s caretakers are raising funds to help get her the care she needs. You can check out their fundraiser here.
