    KOMO News first brought you the story of Logan last week; he's the 9-week-old German Shepherd puppy, whose heart condition has left him with a short life expectancy.

    His heart condition caught the attention of a vet in Colorado, who believes he can perform surgery to fix the problem. Dr. Scansen, with Colorado State University, reached out to Rescued Hearts Northwest and Logan will have an appointment in Fort Collins, Colorado, Jan. 30, and the surgery the next day.

    The rescue is still trying to figure out how he will get there safely and how they will get the money to pay for the surgery.

    When Logan was first diagnosed with Pulmonic Valve Dysplasia his foster family decided to create a bucket list for him so he could live the best possible life a puppy could have.

    One of his bucket list items was to get hugs from 100 different people.

    Rescued Hearts Northwest held an event in Bellingham over the weekend to help him reach his goal.

    They said they lost track of how many people hugged Logan, but he is well over 400 hugs at this point.

    Information about donating to Logan and Rescued Hearts Northwest can be found on their Facebook page.
