(Adopted) Fabio – Age 2
My name is Miss Melon and I’m an almost 2 year old, black, female pug!
I’m a darling girl that is looking forward to beginning a new chapter with a big hearted family that is ready to welcome all that I have to offer and assist me with the things that I can not do alone.
My story is simple. I began my life with a loving family that purchased me as a companion for their young son. I was well loved, socialized, cared for, and trained. Over the past year I slowly lost 85% of my vision and was diagnosed with a genetic cataract condition. My vision could be improved with a surgery to replace the lens in each eye, but this would be quite expensive. With a small child and a new infant, my original family was unable to accommodate my needs.
Here is the happy part, I am otherwise healthy and very sweet! I would really thrive in a home without stairs leading outside. I know to go out to potty but either require some help or need to be able to access the yard without scary steps. I will quickly learn to navigate my new surrounding and I’m very adaptable. I love children and my cuddling skills are impressive. My foster mom reports that I’m easy to care for if you understand my sight needs. I like to play with other dogs and I’m high energy and run around, but I sleep well at night!
Of course I will count on my new family to keep me safe and away from stairs, pools, and harm…but I am extremely capable and excited to fall in love again and bond with the humans that were meant for me!
