From the Foster:

Devin has a very friendly temperament without an ounce of aggression.  He is a beagle and his nose leads him.  He met the other dogs in his foster home with no problem.  He enjoys running, chasing and playing with them.  He also enjoys sharing the couch with you if you’ll let him.  But, if you don’t, that’s ok too.  We are working a little bit on learning personal space as when he does sit next to you to be petted, he can try to get really, really close.  He appears housetrained.  He’s only been here a short time, but so far, no accidents.  We don’t crate him because he doesn’t get into anything.  The one thing he has done is reach his nose up to the counter to munch on some hamburger buns.  Otherwise, he has been the perfect house guest.  He sleeps on a dog bed in the bedroom at night and doesn’t move until morning.  Very easy boy to have in your home.

 

Devin has a heart murmur.  At the moment, the murmur does not cause him any problems.  He can run and play, go for walks, everything a dog is supposed to get to do.  He does have a small heart defect which is causing the murmur and his heart is at the beginning stages of heart disease.  According to the cardiologist that examined him, Devin could stay the same and not have any changes to his heart.  Or, he could move to the next stage of the heart disease at some point and would go on medicine which would then slow down any movement to more serious stages.  He could still live a normal length of time and have excellent quality of life. 

 

The dilemma is knowing whether or not the heart disease has progressed or not.  To obtain this information, it will be necessary for whoever adopts Devin to agree to have a chest x-ray performed every six months looking for any change in heart size.  There may never be a change, but if there is, he will need an echocardiogram and possibly a daily pill.    Don’t let any of this scare you away from meeting this truly wonderful boy.  He is not limited, he simply needs a chest x-ray every six months. 

 

This boy is a total love and if you are looking for a new best friend, Devin would love to be that friend.
