I am frequently reminded,” how the cute little ones are so easy to adopt out “! For those , who never get to see where we frequently start with “a cute little one”.
Here is a look into our reality…..
 Merci was on the euthanasia list , then just another burst of fuel for the incinerator , and boom , she would not have been a second thought .
 Enter .. VIP Rescue
She had the stench of raw sewage and skin the just oozed.Our friends at Day and Evening Pet Clinic of Palm Harbor are never surprised by the treasures we show up with anymore .I frequently joke with them, we are an element , of their continuing education ! Every one of our VIP Rescue volunteers, anxiously awaits the diagnosis and treatment then shares , with the rest of the team, so each day we become a little more prepared, to help those cute ones we service.Please feel free to contact them , to contribute to Merci’s bill or donate on line at 
Merci is 13 lbs and her happy sprit age is 7. We think she is a Lhasa or Pekinese. She is in my line of vision right now . with a silly little bark of joy, raspy from the incubation for  her dental. She will need to be protected from the sun, because her severe matting she had to be stripped completely. She has a very treatable skin fungus by short term daily pills. She has eye ulcers , also treatable by 3 xs a day with  drops. Merci is current on her shots, heartworm negative and appears to be spayed.
To my delight , she is house trained, great on a leash , good with other dogs , very friendly and sweet.
Already , enjoying some Bil-Jac dog food!
I am reaching out to all to assist us with her medical bill, and for a foster home that can commit to her for about a month when her hair grows in a bit.
Thank you all for being part of the solution !

I guess I was the strongest of the litter because I have a couple of challenges to deal with. I don’t feel disadvantaged or unfortunate because the big Dog Spirit in the sky knew I could handle my problem. You see, my eyes don’t see real good the like other pooches and I miss a few words here and there ’cause I don’t hear as well either. But what I do have is a big heart waiting to love my new family who can overlook my short comings. My nose works great and I can still run and play or walk and jump like a champion. You’ll see I’m the one you have be waiting to find. We are going to make a great family together… Signed Puppy in Pink
