This was a PM I sent to Crowe

I bet it will be gone by the time you pick him up. Not to get too technical, but there are a couple of holes and shunts in and around the heart that are present during development before birth. They are there because the lungs are not needed while in the uterus, all oxygen is provided through the placenta. They don't close immediately after birth and sometimes take a little longer.

Since this guy is one of the biggest puppies, I'd be very surprised if this was anything serious.

We have decided to take the puppy. All indicators are he will be fine. There is inherent risk in life in general-he could be healthy now and develop something later on, such as both my springers becoming diabetic.

Thank you Dr. Doug for your help and reassurance. It is much appreciated.

Thanks everyone for your input. That is also very much appreciated.

As far as this: I would consider it if the puppy was free otherwise no.
The breeder has a money-back (or new puppy) policy. I think it's unfair to not pay for something that is still worth it's value unless proven otherwise.

Yes, pics will be forthcoming!


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

FYI: I had a heart murmur as an infant. I’m now 71 and healthy as a horse.
