    Howie needs a new home! 

    Howie means the 'high guardian or brave heart' and this gorgeous specimen certainly brings some sparkle and happiness to us.

    Our veterinarian friend donated these gorgeous specimens to RIP and we are working to wet preserve them. 

    Water Puppies or Walrus Puppies are suffering from Water Puppy Syndrome or Anasarca. This is a potentially fatal condition that is commonly found in short-nosed dog breeds such as Bulldogs.

    Water Puppy Syndrome can affect only one or two puppies, or even the entire litter. These puppies are born suffering from Edema –an abnormal accumulation of serous fluid in different organs, cavities or body tissues. Water puppies can be 2 to 4 times larger than normal pups in the litter. Water puppies can become so big they can block their mother’s canal – prohibiting her from giving birth naturally.

    Most of the time, Water Puppies are born through C-section. Sadly, most of them immediately pass away or are stillborn. Water Puppies who are born alive may be categorised as mild, medium or severely affected.

    These babies are also prone to clefts. We have quite a few that are swollen and showing either a single or double cleft! 

    Howie actually has a double cleft. 

    This specimen is now housed in a beautiful globe which is around 12cm.
