SAY HELLO TO
MIRACLE!
There was a tiny doodle born at a breeder on July 13, 2021 who was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus (water on brain) by the local vet. She had few options, and was destined to not live long. A guardian angel stepped in and agreed to find a rescue for the doodle.  Between the kind-hearted person finding Love a Golden Rescue (LAGR)and the pup getting surrendered to rescue, this dear sweet puppy became so stressed, she refused to eat. While on death's door, her will to live finally kicked in, and she survived.  She was named Miracle because of her determination to live. Miracle has been with LAGR since the beginning of November. Now she is eating three small meals a day. Each meal takes her hour to eat.

Aside from her serious medical condition, she is doing okay - except for some quirky behaviors. Miracle circles and circles when she's anxious, and when she does the circling outside in the yard (around the whole perimeter of the yard, over and over), it makes you dizzy just watching her. Also, the concept of potty training does not yet exist in this doodle's head. When she's picked up, she flings her head back, so her foster family has learned to support her head at the neck like a newborn.  Miracle has no idea about what to do with toys, but she  does love to be held and so gets cuddled while watching TV in the evening. Finally, she refuses to climb the one small step outside. When she's ready to come in, she just stands there like a princess, waiting to be picked up, sometimes barking; we think it is changing from one surface to another that totally confuses her.   Her foster home has tried to teach her to take that one step up but, so far, to no avail.

At her vet appointment she weighed 9.7 pounds even though we were told she is a standard size doodle. If she is indeed going to be the size of a standard doodle, she has lots of growing to do! Currently Miracle is growing taller but is still very skinny. She has no pain tolerance. When blood was taken at the vet, this doodle carried on and screamed her head off. Her blood work results were fine though, just a little anemic.   

She came to us with lots of mats and being a doodle, that was not good.  A trip to the groomer was needed. Again, like witih the blood work, she screamed and carried on, but thankfully, the mats are out. Now Miracle wears a cute little vest until her fur grows back.

We took Miracle knowing she was a special needs girl and are committed to helping her. She will be going to Neurology Department at the University of Missouri for a diagnostic visit. This visit will probably involve a MRI scan and whatever the resulting diagnosis, it will almost certainly be very expensive.

Currently we are raising special funds to pay for the expected cost of the MRI Scan.
