Our sweet Pumpkin came into rescue late February as an owner surrender that was moving out of state! The owners said that she came from a backyard breeder and was given up because she failed to produce a viable litter. They also told us that she liked to sleep on the floor downstairs with a blanket, she did not like a bed, did not like to walk, nor climb up the stairs. Since in her foster home she loves her orthopedic bed, gets so excited to go with her foster dog on walks, and has become very active.
We knew that she was extremely obese and had a plan for that, no big deal. Her foster mom reports that she has already lost some weight. What we did not know until now is the extent of this poor girl’s medical condition. She was rushed to the emergency animal clinic and went into surgery the following morning. Her first and immediate issue is bladder stones that is way too big to pass which is extremely painful. The surgeon said that the largest stone was the size of a macadamia nut with many smaller ones. Estimate for this surgery and after care is in excess of $10,000.00 so far. In addition to this immediate need, she will require, in no particular order a plethora of other medical procedures to include; knee surgery in both rear legs, two lumps removed from her side and under her tail area, an extensive dental cleaning, possible surgery on one nipple, a reoccurring ear infection, plus all of the after care with each surgery. Pumpkin will be our million-dollar baby.
One could not ask for a better girl as she is house, crate, and leash trained along with being good with kids of all ages. She is spayed and UTD on all shots. She has been on a low-fat diet in an attempt to help her loses some of her weight.


All of our rescues are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and micro chipped before being placed. Completed application, vet reference and a home check required. We do NOT ship or fly rescues as it’s too stressful on them. For additional information please email
