Loveable rescue puppy faces race against time to complete his bucket list due to rare heart defect

Opie who is just weeks old is facing a life cut short due to a heart defect but his foster carer is hoping he can first complete his ‘puppy bucket list’.
Heartbroken Opie may look like an ordinary labrador puppy but sadly he suffers from Tricuspid Valve Dysplasia - a rare heart defect which means his life is likely to be cut short.

14-week-old Opie was rescued by the RSPCA in July with 35 other dogs, including many other labrador puppies, from cramped and unsuitable conditions in East Sussex.
