Matteo came from a puppy mill, where he and four of his littermates were born with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), a common congenital heart defect in the Bichon Frise breed.

MatteoFunds were raised through Small Paws Rescue, a not for profit organization, to pay for the PDA surgeries. Matteo and his siblings are now living full lives in their forever homes. Matteo's proud mom, Vicky Nixon, said she would trust her babies in the great and capable hands of the cardiologists at Texas A&M. When asked what advice she would give to someone whose pet has a similar problem, Vicki responded, "Please do not wait if you believe or have been told that you're pet has a PDA, as time is of the essence! Let the cardiologists at Texas A&M help your pet and give them a long and happy life!"
