Saving Sophia

Sophia 1.jpg

This is Sophia. She is an adorable apricot fawn little pug puppy who recently came into our Pug Rescue. She is only 8 weeks old and was diagnosed with Spinal Bifida which means her back legs don't work.

Two vets suggested putting her down!! Her new vet says she is 75% perfect pug puppy but is suffering from paralysis in her hind legs. Otherwise she is a feisty, happy, little puppy who needs a forever home.

Sophia will need surgery in a few weeks. She will also need a cart in about 8 months to help her walk. If you are interested in adoption or would like to contribute to Sophia's medical treatment and her upcoming set of wheels, please email: pugrescuenyc@gmail.com.

We are trying desperately to raise some funds for her care. It would be greatly appreciated if all of the pug bloggers out there would cross post this message on your blogs and forums to help spread the word..

Many thanks in advance!

Of course, it's a black pug roughing her up. Fiesty buggers. Always the trouble-makers.

I posted a link to this post up on Facebook. Watch your traffic spike. ;-)
