My name is Macy!
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Macy is being fostered in GA and her fee is $150. If you're interested in adopting Macy, please visit www.rescuepug.com, fill out an application and specify her name!
Macy was surrendered to SEPRA on 6/30/12. Her owner decided that Macy needed immediate medical care that she was not able to give her. Macy came to us with full blown diabetes. Her initial levels were off the chart. She was drinking massive amounts of water and urinating all over the house. After her insulin was gradually increased over the first 2 weeks, she stopped urinating in the house, and only goes outside now. Her diet and treats have been carb free, and replaced with a high protein diet. Sad to say, but Macy is also blind. This, as a result of the diabetes not being diagnosed in time. At this point, she only sees shadows in one eye, and the other eye is forever blind. Her eye pressure is so intense at times that she just stands with her eyes firmly shut. She's a good girl and I've never heard her whimper with pain. The Ophthalmologist has decided that one of Macy's eyes is a good candidate for cataract surgery. Her retina function test (electroretinogram) gave us an all clear for surgery on July 17. A second glucose curve given on July 13 again showed that the glucose levels were off the chart. She'll need to wait until the end of the month for the surgery now. What a miracle that this pug could actually see again. She'll have her adolescence back. No more walking into walls and getting lost in the house; she'll be able to run again. Macy is a small pug, 17 pounds. She really is housebroken. She walks on a leash like a champ. She's playful, and gets along with all people and animals. If you consider adopting Macy, the only special need she will have is insulin shots twice a day when you feed her. The insulin is about $30.00 a month, and she will need a glucose curve done quarterly, which runs about $60.00 each. I'm her foster mom, and I can tell you that I had 2 pugs with diabetes that were blind, and they lived to 16 and 18. Give the insulin every day, and feed her the proper high protein diet, and life will be good with a little diabetic pug. Macy just needed a chance. I wanted to mention that her eye surgery is about $1,700.00 with our rescue discount. Her other tests have cost SEPRA around $450.00 so far. It seems like a lot of money, this is what rescue is about. Please consider financially helping us with her medical needs. Thank you.
Macy is very loving, active little girl. She loves to be a lap dog and snooze on your lap and is ready for adoption. She needs an insulin shot after each meal and eye drops daily.
