7-year-old with heart condition and new puppy get red carpet treatment at vet

- Gigi is 7-years-old and suffers from a life-threatening heart condition. Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Gigi has a brand new labradoodle puppy named Miko.

“I was like, oh my God, he’s so cute!” she told Fox 10 Phoenix.

Gigi and Miko also got the red carpet treatment, literally, during their very first visit to the vet. Gigi even got a lab coat so she could help participate in Miko’s first examination.

Make-A-Wish is no stranger to requests for furry friends, and works with partners to make sure the right child and the right pup are matched with each other.

Beyond taking his first trip to the vet, Miko is getting potty-trained and learning how to play with a ball.

Gigi and Miko are still getting to know each other, but so far they make a pretty adorable couple.
