Miss M is part of the duo from the blog, and Facebook page, “Two Pitties in the City ”.

Along with her brother, Mr. B., they have been documenting their adventures traveling around Chicago, meeting people, and changing perceptions of rescue and pitbull-type dogs since 2008.

In that time, she has shared her home with 6 Foster dogs, led fundraisers to help other pups in need, founded Chicago SociaBulls dog walking group, and has had several people tell her they were inspired to adopt their own pitbull-type dog after meeting/reading about her and Mr. B.

Many of her fans also know her as the pup most likely to be “unimpressed”, use her brother as a pillow, show up in costume to a parade, and think that every person she meets is the most fantastic person ever.

This past holiday weekend, Miss M suddenly collapsed and had difficulty breathing. She spent her holiday at the Pet ER.

Even while she was sick in the ER, she was still wagging her tail and trying to greet people from her cage. After just a couple of days of rest and treatment, she has rebounded to her same energetic and outgoing self.

Unfortunately, she has been diagnosed with a hermangeosarcoma on her heart. The good news is that it is small and it has not spread to any other part of her body; its only localized to her right atrium. The Cardiologist and Oncologist believe that treatment will increase the quality of her life and allow her to continue doing the things she enjoys.

Miss M. is a cherished member of the family and her mom and dad are very much hoping to extend her quality of life through chemo. They are pulling together all they can to cover her medical expenses but could use some assistance. Please consider lending a helping paw.

A Message from Miss M's Family:

Thank you so, so much to everyone for thinking of us and supporting Miss M! We have also loved hearing all of your kind words, stories and about how the pups have become a part of your lives as well.

While this type of diagnosis is always devastating, the good news is that Miss M is doing so well! It’s hard to remember she is even sick.

She has had 2 treatments already and has responded really well. We have 3 more chemotherapy treatments to go, and the doctors are also recommending a radiation blast.

On her next visit they are going to re-do all of her tests to have an idea of how everything looks.
In true Miss M style, she has already charmed the staff and she actually enjoys the attention and going for the doctor’s visits.

Again, thank you everyone so much for your support and allowing us to pursue this treatment so Miss M can continue having a great quality of life and doing the things that she enjoys.
We are continuing to document their adventures and experiences on their Two PItties in the City blog, so stay tuned!

Thank you to everyone who has supported Miss M and donated! She just had some comprehensive testing and they shared some good news that her tumor has not spread and is much smaller! While we know this is not a cure, it has helped her maintain her quality of life and have more time. We will be continuing with some at-home chemotherapy treatments in pill form and she will be monitored with comprehensive testing every two months. Thank you again for supporting Miss M!

We met once or twice back when I lived in Chicago in your neighborhood. We went on a short walk (half a block really) soon after I got my rescue, Dracula. He's a three legged pit mix. Miss M is a great dog and is lucky to have such great persons.
