My name is Ballinger. Life hasn't been super fair to me. First, I ended up in a high kill shelter with my siblings. I was thankfully rescued, but only to find out I have a high 6/6 heart murmur and am suspected to have tetralogy of fallout, which is a rare congenital heart condition that is a combination of four simultaneous heart defects that are present even before birth. The vet says that I'll be comfortable until congestive heart failure develops when I've reached maturity at 1 to 1.5 years old. Could you just love me and give me a home so I can experience a great life for whatever time I have left? I really don't want to be in a box for that time. The doctor said my Heart is so big you can feel it on both sides of my chest, but it also means I just have more love to give. I just need a calm, comfortable place where I can be loved for my short time on this earth.
