Pit Pride, a rescue organization based in Frederick, Maryland rescued a litter of puppies when they were just hours old. Trooper was the only male of the litter and instantly captured the hearts of his rescuers. They soon found out though that not only was Trooper deaf but there was something wrong with his heart. Trooper has pulmonic stenosis and without surgery he will not survive.
Now the rescue is determined to raise the funds and save Trooper’s life.
“Ever since he was born, everyone who meets him loves him, and it’s really important to us to save his life,” said founder of Pit Pride, Katie Makrides.
