THIS IS MIA….and she is truly lucky to be alive.  This precious 8 month old (DOB 10/2017), white, 5 lb, Maltese mix was brought to us almost dead 🙁  She was hypoglycemic, which caused her to lose her eyesight for the most part (she does see shadows and some light); with Parvo, giardia and coccidia….three very severe gastrointestinal infections.  After a month in the hospital and time with us, this little angel is doing remarkably well!  She is healthy and very active — except she did end up with hydro-encephalitis, probably a birth defect.  She has been thru the wringer!  You can watch her video and see that she has a wonderful temperament and vitality!  She is sweet as she can be and LOVES other dogs and should be in a home where she can follow one around. She probably doesn’t have any depth perception but she romps like a bunny…loves to explore….loves to play with her humans and dogs…she is a very special little girl and seems to be almost fully recovered.   She is eating and drinking normally and is such a blast to watch as she “tiptoes thru the tulips!”  Mia could go into almost any home except a senior home that wouldn’t have patience with her.  She will need to be monitored and worked with since she is blind…you will be her eyes or your little dog will be!!  We would not place her in a home with a large dog, as she is very petite.  Is this a little lady you would like to get to know? She wants to know you!!

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
