Introducing...my new little sweatheart!
"Sarah" as the shelter workers named her, was abandoned outside of an animal shelter in the middle of the night, presummably by her former owners.
Both of her eyes were infected, inlflammed, and bleeding and she had a temperature of 104. Poor Sarah must have been very confused about where she was and why she was forced to leave the only home and people she had probably ever known, and scared to be left outside in the cold half blind and in a lot of pain.
Despite the poor condition they found her in, Sarah was a little trooper and displayed nothing but a very positive, bubbly and courageous attitude through her ordeal.
Luckily a rescue organization intervened - pulled Sarah from the shelter and got her prompt medical attention for her eyes.
Sarah was diagnosed with a severe corneal ulceration in her left eye, most likely from an injury that was never treated. The vet determined that Sarah had zero vision in her infected left eye so the best course of action was to have it surgically removed. Fortunately,
Sarah still had full vision in her right eye and they were able to save that one in time.
While she is still adjusting to her new monocular world, Sarah is a perfectly normal, healthy and happy spirited young pug in every other way. She does not let her circumstances or the fact that she only has one eye bring her down in the slightest.
And I didn't let it I stop me from adopting her and giving her a forever home and a forever place in my heart.
Because of her strong pug will and courageousness, I have decided to name her "Moxie". Cause, she has a lot of it.
