Angie is a miracle dog. Not many dogs experience extreme hardship and survive, no less as a normal, happy dog as if nothing bad ever happened.
Angie when we met her:
When we discovered Angie, she was a severely starved stray, who would have been euthanized at the shelter. But DAWG stepped in. Surely we could help a dog in her condition once again, as we had so many times before! But this time, Angie wasn’t just a “starvation case;” she was diabetic. Once her diabetes was stabilized, we knew her sight would be affected eventually. When she went blind, we had her sight restored through cataract surgery in June, 2015.
A long road filled with worry and angst is behind us; now it’s “full steam ahead” for a normal, nutty teen-dog who loves to play and adores people and dogs.
Now that Angie has transitioned to being adoptable, there are a few things we want for her: a high-fenced, secure yard to play in, and ideally another dog with whom to play. (Note: no rough playing!) Obviously, Angie’s adopter will have to continue with her diabetic care, which involves twice-daily insulin injections (12 hours apart), and fairly frequent trips to the vet to ensure her insulin levels are where they should be. Angie’s diabetes is under control, although she has had one seizure from which she fully recovered. Therefore, someone who has an erratic schedule or who travels frequently won’t be an ideal adoptive candidate for Angie.
Angie is truly an angel — even a naughty angel at times — who is waiting for the right person to step up and be her person. Be sure to ask about Angie soon!
