She was picked up off the street. She had a really bad case of Demodex mange. They said that was like the worst case of mange she’d seen. It pretty much covered her whole body. She almost had no hair. She also had eye ulcers. It was really heartbreaking. She had to be admitted to the hospital for two weeks. And then I saw her and I was like, oh my God, I need to meet this dog.
As soon as I met her, she just walked up to me, she let me pick her up and hold her. And she like started closing her eyes and my arms. And it was just perfect. I adopted her through True North Rescue. True faithful, picked her up and took care of her and got her back to health. And then they sent her up to New York. Her transformation is really all thanks to them. True faithful and Lisa and the team are amazing. They check in on her all the time. She still needed to continue with medicated baths, frequently… Um, eye drops for her ulcers and other meds. And I was ready to take on the challenge. I’ll do anything for her.
So when she first got here, she was very timid, did not want to go up and down the stairs. She didn’t wanna walk through thresholds. She did not want to go to the bathroom outside and she wouldn’t go up to other dogs but we worked on that. In time she definitely overcame those obstacles. I think she knows that we’ve been helping her and that everybody along the way has been helping her. She was just always trusting and no matter what she was like, always loving. She’s been kind of an emotional support. She’s been helping me through the last year, but also just she’s become a companion. She gets me going out of the bed, gets me outside. She gets me moving. She makes me more social.
Nugget gets a lot of love on the internet… she has a lot of people that are very invested in her life. And, uh, she gets a lot of positive feedback. A lot of people are just happy to see that she is thriving now. When they watch her now they’re just, they say that it just builds them with so much happiness. Like I just like that she could bring happiness to other people. She’s just become like the most important thing to me. She’s like my heart. She has like my, everything.
