Mikey was left
inside a cardboard box on the steps of Dixie Animal Hospital on one
of the coldest nights of the year. The box was covered with frost
and Mikey was emaciated, had only one eye and was sick. There was no
note included - not even a name for him. Dr. Roarx, the Steinmacher
Pugs' favorite vet, neutered him, brought him up to date on his
shots, and treated his illness. Once he was well, the Steinmacher
Family fostered him and hoped that he had found his forever
home. During his short time with us, Mikey was such a good little
pug. He was already potty-trained and had such a happy, joyful
disposition. His fur is very thick and long and silky. We loved him
dearly, however, Sir. Boz simply could not tolerate having another
male in the house.
With KPR adoption coordinator, April Freeman's help, Mikey was
introduced to Katie Lloyd who was pre-approved and on the waiting
list to adopt. Katie and her friends, James and Whitney instantly
fell in love with Mikey and Mikey apparently sensed their love and
responded so joyfully! Katie found the pug she had been waiting for
and Mikey is very much loved by her friends and family. When Mikey
first came into rescue, he was fearful of steps. With Katie's
patience, he has mastered the steps in just a few days. Katie says
he loves to snuggle up and he LOVES to eat! Congratulations to new
pug mom, Katie and her new puggy, Mikey Lloyd!!!
A very happy ending!
