It’s a day we thought we’d never see! Our, once hospice, Muggles has moved to the ‘Available’ page! Muggles was surrendered to our rescue by a family that could no longer care for her. After her original vet intake exam, she was placed into hospice care after the opinion of one vet, who felt that she was in end-stage kidney failure. She was also heartworm positive. During all this time, her foster Mom had doubts. Muggles has a great appetite, she has so much energy….was she really that sick? It was decided that another vet would be consulted for a 2nd opinion. That vet said that Muggles shows signs of being in very early kidney disease, however, is healthy enough to go through heartworm treatment and should not be considered hospice. Muggles has now completed her heartworm treatment and is ready to find her forever home. She hasn’t missed a beat through all her tests and resulting treatments!

 

Muggles is a very happy, funny girl and loves hugs and belly rubs. When she wants to play, she jumps around in a circle and does butt wiggles. You will never see a nub move more on a Frenchie than hers! Muggles has lots of energy and just wants to have fun, but she also loves cuddle time on the couch. She thinks every human and animal is her friend. She is a complete clown that makes you laugh out loud on a daily basis. She also makes lots of snorty bulldog noises that just add to her cuteness.

 

Muggles knows the following commands: “sit,” “stay,” “down,” “leave it,” “come,” “fetch,” “speak,” “bring me your toy,” as well as “it’s time for bed.” We believe that she would take to learning new commands very easily as she wants nothing more than to please her human. When it’s time for bed, she has a specific bed she likes and absolutely loves her blankie. Muggles is house-trained and crated-trained. She would be perfect for a working individual as long as he/she (or a petsitter) could come home at lunch to let her out to potty. A fenced yard is not a requirement, but is a preference.

 

Muggles loves food and she can get super excited when it’s meal time, so she needs to be reminded to stay calm and have patience. As she has been given the diagnosis of early stage kidney disease, she is on a prescription diet to help keep symptoms at bay. Musggles loves bright colored stuffed toys, but she won’t destroy them. She also loves chewing on Nylabones. Muggles does have a fear of thunderstorms but she’s not destructive. She just wants to be on your lap, hugged by you and reassured that everything is going to be ok.

 

We are looking for a family that will love her and protect her from any storm that comes her way; a family that will enjoy and appreciate how funny she is; someone who recognizes that even though Muggles is a little older, that it doesn’t slow her down one bit. She has been through a lot but is one tough cookie and deserves to live the rest of her life as a Queen because she has earned her crown!
