Sweet Mugsy is a 6 month old puppy who arrived in Vancouver on December 12th in 2018 all the way from Iran.
When Mugsy as only 40 days old, someone tossed a corrosive cleaner and salts at her face, severely burning her right eye and nose. She was taken to a veterinarian to be euthanized, but a volunteer from Persian Paws Rescue and Loved at Last stepped in and vouched for the tiny dog to have her damaged eye surgically removed and to begin her recovery. Four months later, Mugsy was adopted overseas to continue her medical needs where it could be done by specialists in Canada West Animal Hospital.
Because Mugsy was so young when she was injured, her jaw continued to grow and deviated by damage to her face, as part of her skull is still expanding through her scars. Her nasal cavity is completely exposed and vulnerable to infection and further tissue damage, and desperately needs surgical intervention to correct.
Despite her tortuous start in life, Mugsy is a loving and forgiving puppy who lives in the moment and enjoys all the same delights every dog deserves. Never without a big smile and a wagging tail, we are hoping that Mugsy can still rely on the goodness of people to help her through just one more hurdle in her life.
Thank you for absolutely anything you can spare for this beautiful little girl ❤️
