Here’s a story that’s guaranteed to warm your heart!
When Mike came to the Michigan Humane Society, he was in bad shape. Mikey’s beginning wasn’t an uplifting one, and he was nearly euthanized before he got into the loving care of MHS volunteers.
Mikey was suffering from demodectic mange and glaucoma, which had left him blind and in severe pain. MHS workers decided that in order for Mikey to live a happy and healthy life, the best thing to do was to remove his eyes.
After his recovery, Michigan Pug Rescue stepped in help Mikey find a loving and caring home.
Mike eventually found a loving new home with Sabrina Johnson, a district judge in Inkster, MI. Johnson says he’s adjusting well to his new life.
“I got him from rescue, and he really rescued me,” Johnson says, “He’s just the love of my life.”
She regularly brings the adorable pug to work with her, and he brings smiles to everyone meets him.
“When people meet him, they melt. I’ve seen very tough police officers just get down on their hands and knees, just play with him. He brightens everyone’s day.”
Despite Mikey’s blindness, he’s a fast learner and rarely bumps into things, Johnson says.
“Sometimes when we’re walking in the park, he’ll get going and run into a tree,” she said. “He simply backs up, shakes it off and keeps moving. He really has taught me about how to live life.”
