Logan, the puppy who stole our hearts, passes away following unsuccessful surgery

The German Shepherd puppy from Ferndale who stole our hearts in January when his human created a bucket list for him, passed away Wednesday.

Logan was diagnosed with a heart condition called pulmonic valve dysplasia and was given just one month to a year to live. Because of this, his owner created a bucket list that included everything from visiting a senior center to receiving hundreds of hugs.

His condition caught the attention of a vet in Colorado, who believed he could perform surgery to fix Logan’s problems.

The puppy underwent open-heart surgery at Colorado State University Wednesday, which was ultimately unsuccessful. Logan was nine months old.
