Rescue Stories: Meet Sugar
Sugar was found by her new mom Deborah on Pet Finder’s Pug Lover’s Rescue. Deborah filled out an application and sent it via e-mail and was contacted in 10 mins about adopting her. Sugar is deaf, and she was still sick when she arrived into Deborah's care. Deborah wasn’t sure about Sugar and how it would all turn out, because she was requiring a huge amount of care. She was going to the bathroom in the house and was sick a lot. She almost gave up on her. They decided to give her more time, and finally they found out she had worms, and that’s why she was so sick. Once they figured that out and fixed that problem-- she changed into a different dog. Sugar has done one level of Obedience training. Sugar knows the hand signal for come, sit, and wait. If its dark outside and they need to call her in, they use the porch light to get her attention to tell her it is time to come inside. Sugar would love to tell you her story!
