Gold Star's Sun-Kissed Angel

Click here to visit Sonny's website describing his battle with degenerative joint issues.

Gender: Male
Birthplace: Georgia, United States
Registration: AKC #PR01768602
Variety: Toy poodle
Color: Cream (incorrect on registration as silver)
Birthday: March 25, 2003
Health Issues: Canine Demodicosis (diagnosed at 4 months of age); luxating patella on right leg due to insufficent groove on the femur (diagnosed at 12 weeks of age-corrective surgery at 8 months of age); incomplete tear ducts (Atresia of nasolacrimal puncta); degenerative arthropathy (diagnosed at 4 years of age); ligamentous/tendinous laxity (diagnosed at 5 years of age). In ligamentous/tendinous laxity, also known as generalized joint hypermolbility, the ligaments and tendons stretch and are no longer able to support the bones of the joints. This condition is what caused Sonny's body to become so badly deformed (see pictures above). According to research, it is believed to generally be caused by abnormal collagen production.
