Bellissima, also called Belisa, is a 11 year old Yorkshire Terrier from Prague, Czech Republic.  She was diagnosed in 2014 with a heart murmur which progressed to stage C in December 2016 prior to her surgery at the Bozon Clinic in Versailles, France on March 21, 2017.  She had a successful mitral valve repair that day, and had many complications after surgery, some of which had nothing to do with her heart or the surgery.  However, we are so happy to report that Belisa is back at home recovering comfortably.  You can read more about Belisa's surgery story here.
