Default Littlestown, PA, 5 week old MegaE puppy

A breeder surrendered a 5 week old female puppy to the vet for euthanasia and the vet just could not do it. Two others from the litter were previously euthanized.

The puppy is very sweet and friendly and she is doing well healthwise. She has to be fed in upright position and held in that position for a while after a meal.

Please share with any rescues and private individuals who could help. The vet techs are currently taking turn in caring for the baby but they need a better solution urgently.

Attached are some photos of the little one.

For anyone having doubts about taking a chance with this beautiful puppy, TAKE THEM!

I've raised 2 healthy and happy mega pups into NORMAL adulthoods. One got her agility championship MACH and died at 10 of completely unrelated issues. And my current Ms. Glory B is over 3 years old and doing fantastic also.

So wonderful to get a puppy to raise that possibly just needs some management and vigilance the first year to be a healthy happy adult dog.

The healthier and more normal the puppy, the higher the chance of a normal adult dog, and that puppy looks great to me.

I don't know anything really about MegaE, but I know this dog has it, which is why she eats like this.... Pretty cute.

Now THAT is too cute and the dog sure doesn't seem to be suffering at all!



BTW, I never even had to use that setup at all, though it works well (and is easy to set up) for others.

We just had one last summer (and have several fosters with experience). Surrendered for the same reason to be pts by his breeder. He's adopted and doing really well and getting so big.

Ha! I wonder how that email got to you kr16! Were you on any of the original e-mails about the puppy? I am glad you posted it - I let her know and have e-mailed Rebel as well.

That was from BDBH's foster coordinator - trying to gather some information. No promises from the rescue, as there are a number of medical cases (five - 2 eye, 1 post surgery 2x for ectopic ureter, 2 ortho plus regular stuff) that are being addressed.

Thanks again!
