What’s the deal with a paradise pup?
Paradise pup, named after the Japanese town where she was born, is now living with her parents.
The tiny pup, born with a heart defect and an incurable disease, is also undergoing surgery.
The pup’s owner, a couple who are friends, decided to adopt her when she was five weeks old.
“She is very sweet, loving and full of life.
She is very easy to talk to,” said a family friend who spoke on condition of anonymity.
She and her husband were also able to adopt two other pups.
The new pup is a special case because her congenital heart defect is treatable with a drug called pembrolizumab.
“The drugs were very effective, they were safe and they helped the patient get a lot of sleep,” said the friend.
She said the drug, called pyridostigmine, is used to treat a variety of rare diseases and is used by hospitals in many countries.
It is also being tested in a clinical trial in Alberta, where a baby named Paradise is being treated for a rare form of cancer called sarcoma.
“They’re hoping that this will be a new drug that can treat a lot more rare diseases, because there’s a lot that we haven’t been able to do in this country,” said Dr. Sarah Brown, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Alberta.
Paradise is expected to be able to move around a lot.
She will also be able eat, drink and sleep.
She’s been taking a daily dose of the drug for four months and she has been staying in a hotel for most of the time.
Paradise has been at the clinic for about a month and a half and is getting her first dose of her new medication every day.
Brown said she hopes the drug will help her to feel better, but she knows that’s only a fraction of the battle.
“It’s a long road.
She needs a lot,” she said.
“We have to get to that point.
She still needs her heart surgery.”
Brown said the family hopes to raise money for the surgery to remove the tumor from Paradise’s heart.
Paradise will now spend about $5,000 to $10,000 a month to stay at the centre.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to show our support to this family, and to make sure they have a dignified life and that they’re not going to be a burden on this facility,” said Brown.
