Meet Snuggles

IF YOU ARE SERIOUSLY INTERESTED IN SPEAKING WITH SNUGGLES FOSTER MOM YOU MUST HAVE ALREADY APPLIED TO ADOPT AND BEEN APPROVED.

Snuggles is an approximately 2-3 year old female pug. Because she is unable to walk or urinate without help, her bladder was getting so full, she was dripping urine and blood on the floor. To fix this problem, her previous owners put her outside to live in the backyard.

Living outside without medical care, she is, also, Heartworm, Lyme Disease, and Ehrlichiosis positive. She has bladder stones in addition to a severe bladder infection. She is unable to use her back legs due to a collapsed section of her spine (T6-T7) and requires her bladder to be manually expressed.

Fortunately, Snuggles is a lover AND a fighter. She is incredibly sweet and loving despite her previous life. She uses her front legs to get her wherever she wants to go and even tries getting into her foster mom's lap. Her foster mom expresses her bladder, which has stopped Snuggles from dripping urine. She is, currently, on antibiotics for her bladder infection. Along with her vet, we are working on a plan of action for her bladder stones and heartworm treatment. We will, also, need to figure out what her walking prognosis is. Most likely she will use a wheelchair to move about more efficiently. We suspect she will be like a teenager with a brand new drivers license!

We will update Snuggles journey as she begins to feel better. If you would like to donate towards her medical care, she can use all of the angels she can get.

02-07-17 UPDATE:

Snuggles has finished her heartworm treatment and all of her other medical treatments. Snuggles is doing great and will start looking for her forever family. Snuggles CANNOT URINATE ON HER OWN AND SHE DOES NOT HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OF HER BOWEL MOVEMENTS. I am putting a great emphasis on this as she will require help every day for the rest of her life. This is a true commitment that needs to be taken seriously. Snuggles requires prescription food due to her history with bladder stones.
