THIS IS GEM…and we named her that because she is a Gem!  This lovely, thin-haired, 11 lb, 7 yr old, Maltipoo came from the Carson Shelter a total mess.  Poor baby, we didn’t know if she had a bad skin infection or a thyroid issue.  The truth is, this little lady was not well cared for and we are happy she came to us!  Gem does have a low thyroid, which is being addressed with inexpensive, daily meds that she will need to be on for life.  She also had a UTI and is now starting to feel better after a week!  On top of all that, poor baby ended up with pneumonia and is now in recovery as we write this.  As soon as she is back to herself, we will update her profile, but wanted to post it to let everyone know she will soon be up for adoption and she is a very special, very sweet girl.
