After two trips to Texas A&M and multiple tests including a CT, angiogram, endoscopy and multiple scopes Emma is as happy as ever. She will most likely have to eat in the standing position for the rest of her life, but she doesn't let it slow her down! Obviously, it's not the news we wanted to hear from the doctors at A&M, but we are happy to know there isn't anything wrapped around her esophagus and that it's just a birth defect.
The vets and students at Texas A&M all fell in love with Emma and spoiled her rotten while she was there. Jayson, her assigned vet tech, even went out and bought her a pink chew bone! Now, we need your help. Please share Emma's story far and wide to help her find her forever home. Also, while waiting for her forever home, Emma needs a new foster. Her current foster Dad has been a huge help and will be willing to fill you in on all the eating routines and give you all the supplies we have for her, but with his new work schedule, it's tough for sweet Emma to make it to adoption events. Do you think you might be able to help? She is gonna need a special home, but we know there is one waiting just for her.
A special thanks goes to all that so generously donated towards Emma's care. Texas A&M also donated a considerable amount because she won all of their hearts too! Now we can finally say that Emma how found her perfect forever home! This special dog needed a special adopter, and we're thrilled to say- that's exactly what happened!
Mischa's fosters noticed several months ago that she was limping and when they took her to the vet she was diagnosed with a luxating patella, a condition in which the kneecap is dislocated due to a congenital abnormality.
After undergoing surgery and a long 3 month period of rehabilitation and recovery, Mischa was doing well, but then began to limp on her other back leg.
The diagnosis was what we feared, Mischa had the same condition in her other knee and would need surgery again to correct it. Mischa's fosters must have developed an extra large soft spot for this sweet girl, because they've decided to adopt her! We couldn't be happier to see Mischa in a caring forever home!
Bleu is a wonderful two year old heeler with a long, somewhat sad story to tell; but we very to report on his happy ending! Bleu has finally found his forever home!
Bleu and his siblings were rescued from a field as very young puppies. Thanks to a lot of TLC from their foster family, the puppies grew up strong and healthy, and Bleu was adopted quickly. Sadly, he was returned to Pup Squad when he was a teenager and went back to his original foster home. Shortly after arriving he got out of the yard and was never found.
Fast forward about two years when we received a call from a nice lady who had just rescued a heeler. For the past two years the dog had been kept on a short chain in someone's yard. She had always worried about him. Then, one day he was off the chain, running loose, so she grabbed him. Fortunately, he had a microchip and found his way back to Pup Squad.
Bleu is amazingly social and friendly after his ordeal. He's a very loyal and protective dog and has lots of energy, as all heelers do. As a sad consequence of his time on the chain he has some hip dysplasia in both hips. Our veterinarian says he is not in pain and nothing needs to be done at this time. However, in five to eight years he may need to have surgery on one or both hips. Even with Bleu's special needs, his perfect forever family has come along to give him the life he deserves!
LeeLee is a very special girl that lost her way in February, but has since been adopted by her former-foster family!
She was wandering down a busy street outside of downtown Houston when a Pup Squad volunteer pulled over and rolled down her passenger side window to talk to her. LeeLee walked all the way up to her passenger side door. In an effort not to hit her she got out of the car and walked to the passenger side only to find the dog gone. When she returned to her car, to her surprise, LeeLee was sitting in the front seat and ready to go. LeeLee had a family somewhere but she didn't have a collar on, no tags, no chip and over the course of the month no one posted any signs. Flyers were distributed to the houses in the area but still nothing. LeeLee has now found a family that will keep her close! She is a sweet girl that LOVES to shower you in kisses. LeeLee is a lucky girl who has found her 2nd chance at long, happy life with her perfect forever family!
