Sammy is one special dog! He was born with an undeveloped right eye, but he was able to see with his left eye. Later in life he developed a cataract in his left eye and lost his vision. At this point his family did not want him so he was surrendered to our rescue. MRC took Sammy to a Veterinarian Eye Specialist, and he had successful cataract surgery to restore his vision. Sammy enjoys life now that he can see again. He has a sweet disposition and gets along with other dogs, cats, and people of all ages. Sam is content just to be near his foster family or cuddle next to another dog. Now all Sammy needs is an adoptive family.
Jameson is an adorable 6 month old Maltese/Poodle mix, male puppy. He and his brother were surrendered to us by the breeder/owner. Jameson and J.D. have beautiful soft, snow white curls that are non-shedding. Jameson and J.D. are mild mannered, affectionate and friendly. Jameson was born without vision, lacking a nerve from his eye to his brain. His eyes appear totally normal, and an eye veterinarian has said his eyes are fine and will not need any care. Jameson maneuvers easily throughout his foster home and yard. He does follow his beloved brother, J.D. J.D. wears a bell on his collar so Jameson always knows where to go.
Juno is a 1 ½ year old Havanese mix dog. She entered a large Southern CA shelter with two broken legs. While at the shelter her broken left front leg was amputated due to gangrene. Without any interest in Juno, she was going to be put down so MRC decided to pick her up. She was taken immediately to our vet and had surgery to align her broken left rear leg with a plate and pins. Juno is one remarkable dog as she enjoys life in the same way as a dog with 4 good legs. Currently her activity is restricted to help her leg heal. She can take short walks and walk around a small room with her dog friend, Sandy.
Mason is a 4 ½ month old white, poodle mix male. He came to us from a big Southern CA shelter with a left rear leg fracture. His fracture was a couple of weeks old when he came to us and had begun to heal. Our vet fitted Mason in a firm cast that is changed every week since this guy is growing. You would be amazed how fast Mason can run with three good legs.
Sandy is a loving, small poodle mix and weighs about 10 lbs. She is about 3 years of age per our vet and has a delightfully friendly, mellow personality. Sandy entered a shelter in a neglected state as a stray. Her foster mom noticed that she was continually holding her left rear leg up. Our vet took x-rays of her leg and found that she had a dislocated hip and a dislocated knee. Sandy had immediate surgery to correct her knee and hip. She is currently on limited activity to help her joints heal. Sandy will be available for adoption when she is fully recovered.
