Wiley, an FFR Alumni

Wiley joined Fuzzy Friends Rescue (FFR) as a transfer from the Humane Society in June of 2023 as a 3-month-old Goldendoodle. He was a lively, energetic, furball looking for his forever home. We first noticed something was wrong when we held Wiley and realized we could feel his heartbeat through his chest. Concerned, employees at FFR examined Wiley and found he had a serious congenital heart defect called Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA). Wiley had a grade 5/6 heart murmur, which is almost the loudest and most severe grade.

A dog diagnosed with a PDA has a life expectancy of only 6-9 months without treatment. Wiley was brought to A&M Small Animal Clinic for surgery soon after he was diagnosed.
Wiley’s surgeon, Dr. Sonya Gordon, fell in love with Wiley but couldn’t take him home with her. She told her fellow cardiologists about him, hoping someone she trusted would adopt Wiley. Luckily, a fellow cardiologist at A&M Small Animal Clinic was interested.
Dr. Sonya Wesselowski had just lost her recent cardiac patient for the same heart defect as Wiley. She fell in love with him after hearing about the recovering goldendoodle from his surgeon. Dr. Wesselowski adopted Wiley, renaming him Riggs. After a turbulent journey, Wiley/Riggs fell in love with Dr. Wesselowski and finally found a home.
