Oregon Child Battling Heart Condition Meets Her New Best Friend

PuppySpot is always honored to work with various chapters of the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant wishes to children in search of a fur-ever friend. We truly believe in the work Make-A-Wish does to help build hope and strength for the children battling critical illnesses. So, when we received a call from Make-A-Wish Oregon to grant another puppy wish for a child, we immediately jumped in to assist!

Annie is a 14 year old girl battling a heart condition, and her only wish was for a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. From the moment we received a call from Make-A-Wish Oregon, we knew we had to find the perfect Corgi puppy for Annie! After searching for the right fur baby, we found Annie’s perfect pup- Piper the Corgi!

Piper the Corgi traveled all the way from Missouri to Oregon with a special PuppySpot flight chaperone just in time to surprise Annie at the Banfield Pet Hospital in Bend, OR! The smile on Annie’s face says it all. The Winters family is so grateful to Make-A-Wish and PuppySpot for making this happen for Annie. The two have become inseparable!

Thank you, MAW Oregon for thinking of PuppySpot to help make these special wishes come true!
