Updated as of 3/12/17 : SUGAR PLUM, our two-year-old throwaway mama, has come a long way since we pulled her from our city shelter on New Years Eve and Ruff Post Photo Editor Gabriela Landazuri Saltos captured her beautifully!
This petite 40lb. Chocolate Lab/Am Staff mix was still lactating when she was abandoned without her babies. We were surprised to learn she is also heartworm positive. Given the absence of microfilaria bacteria in her blood our vet believes her heartworm case is relatively new,… which would indicate she came up from the South and may not have been from Brooklyn to begin with. She is has three weeks of leashed activity and crate rest only, due to her final phase of heartworm treatment, and can’t wait to get up and running again by early April!
Our sweet girl is an affectionate cuddler who is working on her basic manners and doing very, very well! SUGAR PLUM is dog friendly but prefers not to be around cats. She would love a home with active humans who like walking, hiking and/or running.
SUGAR PLUM is crate trained, housebroken and walks well on leash. To adopt our last One Lucky Pup rescue program pulls apply at www.mrbonesandco.org/adoption-application Adoptions available in NY, NJ, CT and some parts of PA. For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for sharing this most deserving ballerina!
