Chandler is part of the #SacRDRFriends litter; his mama Phoebe came to SacRDR from the Stanislaus County Animal Shelter late in her pregnancy, and Chandler and his siblings were delivered via emergency c-section just a few short days later! Chandler was born with a cleft palate, which created some complications for him early in life – since he was unable to nurse without risk of aspirating, he was tube-fed around the clock for the first few weeks of his life and brought in for supervised visits with mama and the rest of his litter for socialization. Chandler is not yet old enough to undergo surgery to correct his cleft palate, and whether surgery is a necessity will be discussed with his veterinarian as he grows. For now, this playful, spunky little guy is happy as he is – aside from a few modifications and precautions as to what and how he eats and drinks, he’s just like any other puppy!
