Dear Mutt Militia,

Sugar Baby needs our help!

This precious little spaniel mix, approximately a year or so old, was brought into the Bakersfield shelter along with her littermate, whom we are calling Spice. The pair is inseparable, and as sweet and loving as can be.

Sugar is severely disabled, and we need to find out exactly what's going on so that we know how best to help her live a healthy, fulfilled life. She will need extensive medical attention, including an MRI, to determine the nature of her neurological disorder or injury, whichever pertains in her case. This procedure will be performed not by a regular veterinarian, but by a neurological specialist, as would be the case for a human being in the same situation. As you can imagine, this will be extremely costly.

Sugar's back legs are immobilized, (though she is able to wag her tail). She uses her front legs to scoot around on her belly, which are also somewhat malformed. We aren't sure if this is a genetic abnormality, or if her front legs have turned inward as the result of the way she maneuvers her body to get around. At any rate, her treatment may include the use of a wheelchair, which would need to be custom made.

Please dig deep if you can, and donate to Sugar's medical fund. Any money raised that ends up not being used for Sugar's treatment will go into a general Marley's Mutts medical fund, and will go toward helping other animals get the medical care they need.

Thank you so much, Mutt Militia. We can never say it enough, but without you, helping these dogs would not be possible!

Dog Speed,

Liz, Zach and the Mutts
