Polly is our one year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. We adopted her when she was three months old after being returned by another family due to a facial nerve injury that required surgery. Polly has been our beautiful baby girl ever since. Polly was recently diagnosed with a liver shunt, or a malformation of her liver, that has put her into liver failure. Polly needs surgery to correct her liver shunt. The surgery itself has a high success rate of 90% and she could be back to normal liver function and a normal life in 4-6 months after surgery. However, this surgery is very expensive as it is a specialized procedure that not many vets can perform. We have pet insurance, but the insurance has denied our claim because it is a "pre-existing condition."
Polly is a happy, silly, cuddly and sweet dog. She makes fast friends with everyone she meets on the street, including other dogs, children and all strangers. She loves hopping through sand and snow on her little legs. She loves to cuddle and give kisses. She also loves whipped cream as a special treat after medical procedures.
My fiancé and I feel incredibly lucky to have Polly in our lives and experience the joy she brings to not only us, but everyone she meets. Polly has had a tough first year of life but I am so hopeful knowing that she could finally be a healthy dog after this surgery. It would mean everything to us if we could do this for her. I can't imagine life without her. Please help us pay for this surgery by voting for Polly!
