Lovey came to us from a rescue in the heart of the Ohio puppy mill country. She came to me for medical care thru a cavalier rescue. She was never spayed because she was a production dog. I am sure she produced many, many puppies. Not being spayed yielded end stage mammary cancer. Her neck is big in the picture on the right not because she is overweight but because she had tangerine-sized lymph nodes from infection and inflammation. When dogs are not spayed, they have an 80% higher chance of cancer. Primarily adenocarcinoma. Lovey also has a grade 6 murmur and heart enlargement. You know what Lovey doesn’t have? A clue that she is sick anymore! With months of antibiotics, a go for broke dental and mammary tumor removal, a lot of excellent nutrition, life saving steroids and anti-cancer supplements, little miss Lovey loves every minute of her action full life. She will live out her days at the Mitzvah Fund head quarters ... dubbed doggy Disneyland by the guests! ♥️ She loves new doggy friends and especially enjoys gardening with me. Sometimes, you don’t know what you need until it lands on your lap. All of our cases touch my heart every day but this little doll just showers my soul with her love and kindness. Lots of new and exciting things are coming down the pike here for the Mitzvah Fund. Stay tuned for many new surprises that will hopefully help us help more neighbors in Central Vermont. If you would like to donate to the Mitzvah Fund we are a 501-C3. Your donations are tax deductible. We help folks throughout Vermont that just don’t have the means to provide non-routine surgery or dentistry for their needy beloved four legged family member.
