Story by Sugar’s Foster Mom:
Sugar found her foster family. She walked up to my husband and licked the back of his calf. When he turned around he saw a starving little sweetheart that was just skin and bones. She had very full teats, and it was obvious that she had puppies in the recent past. The kindness in her eyes pulled at my husband’s heartstrings, and he took her into his office and fed her what he could from the refrigerator. He and his co-worker searched for the puppies to no avail. Sugar was no help as she would not leave my husband’s side.
My husband’s office is located in an industrial area of the city, and it became obvious that Sugar had been dumped. Sugar has had the tops of her ears cut off as is done with dogs used as breeders. Because Sugar is so tiny (she only comes up to your knee), she was probably used as a breeder, and once her job was done, she was left in the streets to starve. She is by no means a fighter, she gets along great with all of our other dogs (a lab, shepherd, malti-poo, and Chihuahua) our two cats, and our two year old son. She has no propensity towards aggression.
However, Sugar is a puppy and loves to play! The day after we found Sugar, we took her to the vet. He said that she is very young, and probably got pregnant on her first heat. She is definitely ready for her forever home, and she deserves the best. Can you adopt her?
