Five-pound Kimmie is about as cute as anyone can imagine, yet her owner decided to surrender the dog to an Alabama animal shelter asking the staff to euthanize her due to moving and the dog could no longer eat her food. Clearly the seven-year-old poodle, who was both adorable and friendly, had a lot of life yet to live. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC instantly agreed and made arrangements to transport Kimmie to New York for her veterinarian workup and treatment.
“Can you imagine?! She looks pretty lively to us, certainly not suffering or ready to die,” stated Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the organization. The only issue seems to be her teeth from a lifetime of canned food, so she’ll go to our vet first to get checked out, and then Kimmie is ready to go home.”
On Friday, Kimmie arrived in New York City and was whisked off to the veterinary specialists who literally gasped when they opened the tiny dog’s mouth. Her gums are severely infected, her teeth are rotten and so she has been scheduled for surgery on Monday morning. After some healing, this friendly lap dog, who gets along with everyone as well as other dogs, will be ready to move on to her new life. Kimmie didn’t want to die, and all 4.8 pounds of her have lots of living to do.
