Wally is an adorable little boy who needs a family willing to monitor him and provide him with the veterinary care he will need in the future.

Wally is two years old and only weighs four pounds. He was quite ill and had a liver shunt repaired at the Atlantic Veterinary College in April, and is now on two types of medication. He may be able to go off the medication as his liver readings improve, but he will need to have bloodwork done regularly.

Wally gets along with other dogs and people of all ages, and doesn’t pay much attention to cats. He’s house trained, although there could be some accidents while he’s settling into a new home. He loves squeaky toys, snuggling, and napping while covered by a blanket.
